For some reason, my control options are messed up with the new patch. I use the up/down/left/right arrows for forward/backward/strafe left/strafe right while flying with a flight stick. Ever since the new patch, I cannot get the up/down/left/right arrows to be removed from pitching and turning my aircraft. I usually assign these functions to the flight stick, but when I try to save with the new settings, the up/down/left/right arrows automatically return to being used for pitch and turning. WTF. Now the arrow keys are being used for two different functions and are saved that way. It creates a control conflict that makes flying impossible. Also, now I can't use my mouse 4 and 5 buttons. They used to work fine, but now won't save for any functions. The same thing happened a while ago with BF1942. WTF. Why are there such lame changes to the controls?

My whole message is about the fact that I can't reconfigure my controls properly. Whatever I change doesn't affect the fact that the arrow keys keep ending up as up/down/turnleft/turnright on airborn vehicles. It even saves the game with the arrow keys performing multiple functions. Maybe I should just uninstall the whole game and reinstall then start over from scratch on the controls. I would rather not do that though. Any suggestions?

Its true, i have the same problem, i keep crashing with my helicopter cuz my nose and my speed both go up together. Also the enter/exit vehicle control cant be an joystick button.

Thats not really a solution, better would be a bugfixed new patch just to get the controls good or a little file that you just need to put in the map of bfv and than you can chnge the controls without any problems. But maybe there is an easier explenation, but which??
