Landing gear extension

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased the Jetprop and have read through this forum; also searched to see if anyone else had this problem.

 

The landing gear will not extend above 130 kts. This is completely unrealistic (and the Vlo speeds do not matter). Does anyone else have this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? I could not find any kind of limit in the aircraft.cfg.

look for [contact_points] in the aircraft.cfg file.

For point.0, point.1 and point.2 check the last two numbers which are currently 135.0, 137.0.

The 135.0 is the Airspeed Limit. This is the speed at which landing gear extension becomes inhibited (knots).

The 137.0 is Damage from Airspeed. The speed above which the landing gear accrues damage (knots).

Change those to your liking. Vlo for a Malibu Mirage is 165 I think, and 195 for Vle.

Good luck!
