Default Drag chute problem

I’m having trouble releasing my drag chute. I can deploy it fine using “p” but cant release/disconnect it. I tried using the default keys, mapped a button on my stick for release, and pushed the release button in the cockpit. Nothing works to release it.

The only way is to go almost to afterburner after stopping, then it comes off. But then the plane acts as if the right brake is fully engaged, and I spin in circles. Can anyone tell me if I’m doing it wrong?

Hi Cgjunk2, you can deploy the drag chute by hitting the assigned key, or pushing the button in the cockpit. However, to release it, you must flip open the cover of the release button. The assigned key won't work unless the cover is up.

Hope this helps!

Thanks, but where is that release button? I looked on Chucks guide and only saw one drag chute button, and it didn't have a cover. I must be missing something...

Left of the throttle, so you’re hand is right next to it
