New Simmer Question - Banking on takeoff

Recommended Posts

I have just intalled FS 2002 and have done some preliminary reading and flying. My question is this - as I takeoff I am having difficulty keeping any aircraft flying level. I am using the default realism settings and am using a Thrustmaster control stick. No matter how centered the stick is as I lift off the plane will begin to bank. THanks for any help.

If you're flying a GA plane such as the 172 and it is banking to the left, that is normal. You need to add a little right rudder to counteract it. The tendancy to pull to the left should decease a bit when you reduce the throttle for cruise.Good luck.-Lindy :-wave

Welcome to the forum.This is normal for the plane to bank to the left because the plane's propeller is turning that way, try correcting with a little rudder.Hope this helps

Steve:I agree with Lindy, in that that bank induced by engine torque is normal for GA aircraft. I do not, however, experience any substantial banking after rotation in the heavy airliners I usually fly. One possible exception might be in high crosswinds, but even then it's usually heading drift left or right vs any uncommanded banking. If your in an airliner, check to see that your fuel loads are symmetrical between left and right main and/or auxillary tanks.Good Luck, Alex ChristoffN562ZMinneapolis, MNThermobulb@aol.com
