    Not sure if this is a bug or a feature of the real 717, but still.

    During the flight control checks, if I move elevator either up or down, it stays "stuck" in that position until taxi (then it returns to neutral and continues to work as expected). Both engines are running, L/R HYD pumps and HYD TRANS/AUX pumps are on.

    I'm using, but this issue was also present in

    This is the correct behavior - the elevator is only hydraulically assisted moving downward. It requires aerodynamic forces to return to the neutral/upward position.

    Cool! Found this in AOM to backup your words:


    Move control column full aft and full forward, then neutral. While in full forward position, observe green indication of ELEV boxes.
    The elevator green box appears when pushing the control column forward. The green box may appear when moving the control column aft - this requires no crew or mx action.
