Finaly got PF for christmas gave it a quick spin on the USA carrier single player missions, and i cant seem to toggle my landing gear, up or down. I have tried mapping the function to different buttons but no such luck. Speaking of luck i managed to land the sucker twice with just the hook out. Tried a quick mission with a different plane and the gear worked ok.
Note: Installed stand alone and fully updated to 3.02b. Anyone able to help me on this one. Would love to land with my wheels down to get more practice. Thanks

My guess is you are flying in a plane that has manual gear control.

You need to assign two keys to use the gear, one for down and one for up.

In case you didn't quite grasp from Nubarus, you need to manually pump the gear up or down. Assign keys ( I did Shift G and and Alt G) and hit them enough times to get gear fully raised or extended. Patch 3.02 gives the "gear up" message rather than physically having to check out side. Guess you've worked out the chocks release ( 5 points awarded), but don't be afraid to use landing flaps just at end of carrier for a good lift off.
