a330/340 stall

Recommended Posts

Guest 747lover

I bought the a330/340 from just flight for nearly a year ago.I know very little about airbuses so I dont know how good the flight dynamics or system simulation are.But I do have a question regarding stall.When I stall the aircraft(not easy because of alpha protection)the plane is simply falling from the sky.It is very difficult to recover.I been told that this is a common weakness of products originally designed for fs2002.Is there any service updates I can install?

I recommend you get the revised flight dynamics by Bob Scott from the USer Edits section of the PSS website.But I do have to wonder why on earth you are stalling the aircraft. This is very rare, unnecessary and rather poor piloting. There is no reason to stall the aircraft if you have the weights set correctly and are following standard operating procedures. You will find it very difficult to recover if you do stall, but the best way to do so is to dis-engage autothrust and then re-engage it. But this just shouldn't be happening. You must be doing something wrong.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

Thank you for your reply.Since it is not real life,I like to have some fun.In real life pilots do stalls in simulators just to find out how their aircraft behave in extreme situations.I did some stalls in the pss 777 and pmdg 747,and did have no problems with the recovery.Another question.Do you manually trim these planes when not on autopilot?

The only time I manually set the trim is for takeoff when a pitch trim of -1.4 to -2 UP is usually OK. You need to make sure you don't over-do it as too much trim will lead to a loss of IAS. Too little and you risk shooting through V2+10 on the climbout so that when you engage a/p the nose pitches up rather violently (as the computers try to bring the speed back to V2+10).Apart from that I never ever mess with the trim.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

FS does not do a good job of modeling stalls, reguardless of the flight model (i'm talking FS aircraft in general).in a stall situation modern aircraft will 'crab/slide/roll' left or right as IAS decreases and AoA increases; at stall the nose will drop (alarmingly) and the aircraft will quickly gain airspeed. in FS ... not so much. in an FS stall you get 'mushy' controls, high AoA, and then just drop like a brick (sometimes tail first).this 'lack of realism' is a common complaint in the forum by those that fly the real deal (mostly comes up from folks that fly the little cessnas). i've read that Fly! does a much better job with aerodynamics modeling.--

But then again,there is add ons which doesn,t use the default airfiles for flight dynamics.
