Crazy Wind Shifts Overspeed - Stall Issues

Recommended Posts

On the last two or three versions of AS2004.5 I've had problems with certain flights where the wind will slow to nothing and/or climb up to an unfriendly speed and direction. Last night for example, the wind was 320 at 99, then dropped to below 20, changed direction several diferent times 360 degrees, then went back up to over 100. Each time these events have occurred the plane (usually a jet at high altitude) can't compensate so it goes into overspeed and/or comes very close to a stall. I know I have everything set right, including the Wind Drift Rate set at 0. Is there anything I can do to prevent such dramatic wind shifts? I know AS and FSUIPC helps a lot with FS9's inherent wind problems, but I'd sure like a better fix. Is there a way that maybe the new version of AS can incorporate an option to slow down the wind drift rate by half of what it is now? Some value we can assign perhaps in the options to reduce such crazy winds. Even if it's unrealistic, the add-on planes just can't handle the violent shifts.Thanks!

If you have the registered version of Pete Dowsons FSUIPC, you can limit wind speed changes to X amount of knots per second. I have mine set to 1 knot per second... This setting is found under the wind tab, unsuprisingly.Hope this helps.Stu

Yeah, I have the paid version, I just wasn't sure if it was okay to adjust the FSUIPC setting with AS running.

Hi,To add to Stu's suggestion, I found setting 4 seconds/knot or degree in FSUIPC really smooths things out.
