Dreamwings E145 pitch problems

Recommended Posts

Anyone else having problems with unusually high pitch (deck angle) while on approach with the E135/145s by Dreamwings? Its nothing like the real aircraft and it makes landings extremely difficult. There's no reason why an approach REF speed of 145+ias needs to be maintained for a stable, if not normal, approach with flaps 45. Is there an updated FDE/cfg out there? I haven't had any luck searching for info on this. I'm tempted to tweak the drag lines associated with the flaps in the aircraft.cfg files but I'm not sure this would work...any help is greatly appreciated since the Dreamwings forum is nothing but porn posts :-roll .Cheers,Mark

You mean I'm the only one? Nick Botamer's model flys better but there aren't people making repaints for it anymore. I just made an approach into KONT last night and I had to maintain 150ias just to keep a decent (2-3 deg up) deck angle. I've confirmed through two actual ERJ pilots that the Dreamwings angle is exagerrated...any FDEs out there...or suggested tweaks. Thanks,Mark

Mark,Try dumping about half the fuel and adjust the pax loading. That will bring the deck angle down to a manageable level.Regards,Leon

>Mark,>>Try dumping about half the fuel and adjust the pax loading.>That will bring the deck angle down to a manageable level.Thanks for the suggestion but I'm already running with realistic fuel and pax loads. If I'm running KMCI to KONT with 40 pax and arriving with 2500lbs total in the tanks I shouldn't have a 6+ degree deck angle at 145ias VREF speed. I'll try tweaking the drag and lift values in the flaps section of the Aircraft.cfg...any other suggestions are welcome. -Mark

Hi, this is my first post!I was also having the same problem with high pitch on the Dreamwings ERJ. I ended up merging the FDE from Nick's ERJ to the Dreamwings model and it is now a lot easier to fly on approach, and the engine rpm aligns with my throttle setting in Bill's ERJ panel as well.Victor

>Did you try this package?>>http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID...acrp&DLID=79857>>I didn't try it out but Charles Fox is known for good FDE's,>his 727 one is fantastic IMO.Yes, this is the package that I'm running. I changed the drag and lift values for flaps in the aircraft.cfg to 1.00 and things have improved a good bit. The N1 values are still a bit screwed up but I'm willing to live with that somewhat. I might try incorporating Nick's .air file and merge the two .cfg files a bit and see what happens...so far I'm pretty happy though.-Mark

Ah ok, in this case I would just use Nick's FDE with the Dreamwings model. The merge shouldn't be too hard to do.
