Aeroplane swings on landing.

Recommended Posts

I am extremly upset with every landing I've done because the aeroplane swings from left to right, trying to stay on th localizer. Please put up something that will fix this. I've seen this issue addressed elsewhere in the "Support" Forum, however it has not been addressed properly.

I kind of like the swaying, it makes me feel like I am in a plane instead of a railroad car on a track, the PMDGs and LVD are very nice but rock steady on the ILS approach and it isnt realistic. I fly on 737s a lot and we are usually bobbing around on landing...

> I fly on 737s a lot and we are usually bobbing>around on landing...Thats a very "technical" aeronautical term if ever I heard one!!I presume you mean because of turbulence and not because of the aeroplane's general ability to follow a glideslope accurately!Cheershttp://members.chello.nl/t.westnutt/realair.gif

I'm not a pilot, so thats as technical as I get.turbulance, yes, we almost never run the slope rock solid.

>TURBULENCEI dunno if you guys are talking amongst yourselves, but I can assure you the issue I'm having is not due to turbulence, I had Clear Weather (I know that because I turned off Active Sky, and Real world updates) So PSS please get to the bottom (ot top?) of this.

I've experienced this on all flights thus far - with default loadsheet settings or with added 60000lb cargo at point 1 (200LR).When ils fully captured, full flaps and vref30 as per cdu and no wind the a/c is increasingly unstable laterally and vertically - always have to land manually. Hope it's addressed in the patch.regards,Markhttp://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a319/markrey/lsd2.jpgXPHomeSP2/FS9.1/3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

Can't help you really, I don't have the aeroplane. It seems very expensive if you want to buy all 3 models and some textures. Why are PSS the only company that charges for repaints?As for autoland, I never use it myself onless it's 0/0 vis.Seems a bit silly to do everything automatically, it is a flight simulator after all! Not an autopilot simulator.Cheershttp://members.chello.nl/t.westnutt/realair.gif

Tim,Some of us just enjoy programming the automaton and then watching it do it's thing :) - the 'magic' someone called it.Anyway I personally don't mean autoland, but rather just normal riding of the ils down to the last few hundred feet - I can't get the T7 to do this.regards,Markhttp://i14.photobucket.com/albums/a319/markrey/lsd2.jpgXPHomeSP2/FS9.1/3.2HT/1GIG/X700pro256

As I say I havent tried the PSS 777 yet so I can't comment on it at all.I'm sure PSS will solve any problems soon.Cheershttp://members.chello.nl/t.westnutt/realair.gif

Just completed first 7 hour transatlantic flight EGLL to KBOS and had perfect autoland - no swinging hereJohn

Just finished a BA Flight from EGLL to KIAH, and had the worst swinging imaginable. I remembered back to that "Other Companies" 747-400 that could do a perfect autoland all the way down to Touch Down so I just let the 777 go down all the way, before I knew it BAM Crashed on the runway. I think the real 777 doesn't do this.

I'm having the swings too. They get worse when approaching the runway. I think it's not normal.

The author of this thread is correct. It swings...err..."chases" the localizer, and gets exagerated the closer the aircraft gets to the runway, but is not unmanagable. My opinion is that this is related to the CG. This aircraft DESPERATELY needs a weight and balance manager, not to mention a fuel planner. (There isn't even a fuel planning schematic in the manual. "Guestimation" is the best it gets I suppose.)

It sort of makes you wonder what the beta testers were testing.Its like a roller coaster unles its climbing.Glide slope the same problem except side to side.Some may say it add to the realism, but if in real life you would be waiting for the pilot to sort him out !PSS please fixRegardsDaryl

>It sort of makes you wonder what the beta testers were>testing.>DarylPlease don't be so quick to Blast Beta testers! I have been beta testing products for a good few years now and I know that all you can do as a BT is report, there is no guarantee that what you report will get fixed. By all means have a go at the developers themselves, but please do not be so harsh on people who do a difficult job for little reward!Cheers http://members.chello.nl/t.westnutt/realair.gif

I have flown my LR a few times now and have not seen major swinging in any conditions I've met. It is not rock solid untill about the OM, from then on it gets better. Be advised the popular 744 is softening its autoland because it is too steady, they got complaints from real world pilots on that.

An interesting thread however consider:-using the accompanying load sheet - have you found that yet?-entering the MAC percentage into your FMS - needed for TO trim-using the fuel manager - fuelling through FS9 might not help here which might be why the fuel load manager is included in the aircraft-makeing sure the FD and autpilot are disabled on the ground after landing or else the aircraft will track the localiser on the ground. It is designed to do just that (how strange!) reading this thread and others makes me think I must have bought an entirely different product from what you guys have. I have not experienced:CTDbobbingwild manoeuvers capturing LLZ or GPaircraft wearing high heels and silk stockings ;-)

I go spotting frequently at George Bush Intercontinental Airport (ICAO KIAH. IATA IAH) we get 3 to4 British Airways 777s, 1 Air France 777-300, and many Continental 777-224s. I have never seen a 777 (even on windy days) swing as severely as the PSS 777 does. I think it's safe to say this is not a regular occurance on the actual 777
