Crazy Instrument Behaviour In Clouds

Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced wild erratic instrument behaviour while flying through clouds? I experience this especially with the speed indicator and also the V/S gauge. It happens with all aircrafts. It is so bad that I can no longer fly through clouds because of this. The problem gets worse depending on the amount of cloud coverage. It is virtually impossible for me to approach and land when its heavily overcast. This problem manifests itself only while flying through clouds. If I breack through and fly above the cloud formation things seem to settle down a bit. Is there a FSUIPC setting that might help maybe?Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.Gianluca

Yes, in fsuipc check "supress all cloud turbulence" it sounds as if it is that you are experiencing. Many think FS doesn't simulate turbulence well anyway.

hehe don't worry it's just FS2002's rather poor reprsentation of turbulance.3 ways to solve the problem1. IN FSUPIC check the "Suppress Turbulance in clouds" box2. Use the advanced weather options and turn it off there3. Learn to fly!!!!!!!

Hi Gianluca, Also try turning on your pitot heat. You might be collecting ice as you pass through the clouds :-)Cheers,DannyCYVR
