I am experiencing the same problems over and over again. Any little crosswind from any angle, the airplane is never aligned, i have replaced the fsuipc many times, what's going on!!!

Ok, I'm at KSEA, I set the wind to 5 kts at 250. I landed on runway 34R. Please try both autoland and manuel. The airplane slips to the right of the runway!!!!!!!!!!!! Can there plesase be a fix released because this makes landing in any slight crosswind impossible!!

OK I'll give it a go tonight if I get a chance (I only have today at home - one day off half way through a two week course, ugh). But normally there are not too many problems with crosswinds even up to the limitations of the Airbus providing you have calibrated the rudder in your joystick correctly. For autolands it is also important that that the AFCAD file is correct as many are not correct for the scenery they are attached to leading to a landing to one sie of the runway. As I never fly in the USA I therefore only have the default scenery and AFCAD so I'll let you know how I get on and whether I notice anything amiss.Edit: one thing you might want to try is to adjust (or add if it's not already there) the sensitivity entry in the Controls section of Fs9.cfg to read:stick_sensitivity_mode=0It might help but I haven't tried it myself so have nothing else to go on other than that several pilots have said it helps.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

1)It's only an entry in the FS9 so if it has no effect just take it out again.2) MS is not a game, it's a simulation, but that has been debated to death elsewhere on avsim :)3)As promised I did a test flight into KSEA to see whether my landig differed from yours. I took a short flight from Portland to KSEA and using ASV6 set the wind to 250/05. On landing the wind was actually at 4 knots but I'm sure one degree won't make too much difference. I did an autoland with the exception that I controlled vertical speed on approach. This led to rather too firm a landing which was far from my best (see the non-standard red light on the panel screenshot) but otherwise the landing was OK. But the wind did push me a few feet off to the side of the centreline but not so much that I had to resume manual control. http://forums.avsim.net/user_files/141730.jpghttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/141731.jpgWas that roughly what you were getting or was the drift much worse?

My drift was worse, further to the left even before I hite the gorund. But why is there this drift, would real airbus pilots experience such a drift and would they move disregarding the fd?

By the way, that change to the cfg, what was it supposed to do, I didn't notice a difference.

No they don't get that much unless the crosswind is very severe then the techniques of rudder control and dipping the wing into the wind come into play. If you are having a drift to the left when the wind is coming from your left then there is a bit of a problem. Were you using the pure PSS or the iFDG/PSS merge. I was in the merged A319 (for which we don't provide support) and it could be that something in the FDE is making the difference. I will try it in the pure PSS A319 when I get back from my course and exams on Friday night.For the control sensitivity see http://forums.avsim.net/dcboard.php?az=sho...02447&mode=fullRob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk

The Airbus has had this problem since FS9 on my machine every landing with more than 5 knots of crosswind. With approx 100 ft to go something disonnects in the autopilot takes off the crab and you are heading for the grass. It is such a pity, most freeware aircraft can hold the centerline to touchdown nevermind all other payware I have installed. It just spoils a previously superb aircraft for the sake of a few hours spent on sorting it out. I can't believe they will still sell this with this problem. I will not be trying any of their new stuff till this gets sorted. What can you do??pve

Sorry for the late reply. To answer your question i make a statement, it is all the airbus, boeings and so forth, that I plug the pss panel into that drift and cannot hold the centre line. All the planes experince this.

I tried re-installing the all my pss airbuses, everything is updates, it still happens! Can there be a fix released or something so I can make a descent landing with my airbuses!!!!!

PSS can't issue a fix individually tailored to the problems each pilot might experience, sorry. We have to hope that following the 757 the senior management here in PSS Towers decide that the next release will be a whole new Airbus family.Rob Elliott, EGPE InvernessPSS Airbus Support andAirbus Fleet Training Captain, British Airways Virtual airbus@speedbirdonline.co.ukhttp://www.speedbirdonline.co.uk/airbus.htmlhttp://www.bavirtual.co.uk
