I just got this yesterday and installed Rise of flight and flight stick control will suddenly yaw and pitch nose down and there is no input for the throttle so Question is is me or is this just another sim that this very expensive H.O.T.A.S. will not work on properly

Welcome to RoF and the Forums!   Sorry you're having problems.

 

We'll need a bit more info to try to figure out what is going wrong for you.  First off, what type of airplane were you flying?  Some do not have throttle controls (only blip switches, and sometimes mixture). 

 

Also, when was this happening - shortly after takeoff or later during your flight?  If the former, it's likely to be a stall, typically caused by trying to climb too quickly before you've gained enough air speed to stay aloft.

 

I don't know anything specific about the X56 Rhino (I use a Logitech Force 3d Pro, Saitek throttle quadrant and Saitek rudder pedals myself), but people have successfully used pretty much every one out there, including very expensive ones, with RoF so that's not likely to be the problem.

 

RoF has a fairly steep learning curve, and you do have to practice and pay attention to the basics in order to get and stay aloft in these old crates, but I'm sure you'll get the hang of it with a little practice and if you have any interest at all in WWI aviation I think you'll find a lot of things in RoF to enjoy.

Just using the training missions. It happens after a bit of use and on the take off I find that I real need to use a lot of rudder. Even though I have calibrated the stick when released it will bank slightly and seem so slew like it would if available need a lot of rudder and elevator trim and I use a Logitech X56 Rhino with Logitech software not the Saitek software

Haven't flown the training missions in probably 8 years - which aircraft are you using?  And is the Rhino FFB or not?  Many of these crates are not necessarily trimmed (or trimmable) to fly straight and level if you release the stick, especially a non-FFB stick.  Although you have calibrated the stick (in Windows, I presume), have you checked on the controls/response screens to see whether RoF is showing a proper, smooth range of motion as you move the stick through it's axes (and release it)?  If it's just some sort of problem around the center maybe you could ameliorate it by using some custom curves to creater a bit of a dead zone around the center.

Yeah - sometimes you just get a bad stick - I've been pretty happy with my Logitech Force 3D Pro for the last 8-10 years, and a lot of people here swear by the MS FFB2 stick (I didn't have much luck with getting the FFB to work on the couple of those that I bought on eBay a year or so ago, but they did control the plane well otherwise).  When you buy used stuff it's a bit of a crap shoot generally, but so can new stuff occasionally.
