Erratic winds using real-world WX....

Recommended Posts

I've noticed recently when using the default real-world WX and I'm on approach to an airport, the wind gets very erratic usually below 2000'. I mostly fly the PIC767 so I can see the wind direction and speed. For example, today I was landing at KIAD and the winds were about 7kts. There is a point where the wind will start to circle from every direction and it makes the landing approach darn near impossible, even with light winds in a heavy. I've noticed it quite a bit recently. The WX works fine otherwise. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm not sure if there is somehting I can do in FSUIPC to correct it. Thanks!Eric

Yes I experience this sometimes. I thought it was fsuipc that did this, something to do with variability.... I quite like it though.. and look forward to struggling with eratic wind directions... I guess it happens once every 10 flights or so.:-)Pete

Yep, you can fix it in FSUIPC. Just read the section of the FSUIPC manual about winds. There's all kinds of sensitivity settings that you can tinker with for your specific needs. Hope this helps.Ryan-Flightpro08 :-coolTaxiwaysigns.com
