Realism settings query

Recommended Posts

Guest RONVKING

Hi Folks,Just purchased the Realair SF.260 and as a result maxed out all my realism settings to try some spins etc.Tried to do a loop, slightly dropped the nose to increase the airspeed but got a stall warning and then the stall while pulling up the nose and airspeed was still reading 140 kts well above what I thought was the nornal (airspeed guage shows a green line from 70kts).Is this a microsoft thing or does work like that?Thanks Ron

A common misconception! You can stall at any speed. There is only one thing that causes a stall and that is the angle of attack exceeding critical alpha for the wing configuration. Configuraion being slot, slat and flap settings. The only reason you stall at slow speed is because you need to keep picking the nose up to increase alpha to maintain lift. Eventually you exceed critical alpha and stall.If you stalled at 140kts, then you pulled up too quickly.

It is correct that the realism settings should be on full for this aircraft. Don't forget that Rob Young wrote the air file for the SF-260, this is really the way a real one flies ! It's an advanced trainer and sport tourer for the more experienced( and rich,lol) pilots, it ain't no C-150!The FS version of the SF-260 has (like the real one) a laminar-flow wnig profile. One of the characteristics of this kind of wing is that you can experience "high-speed" stalling, in other words, a stalling speed well above the normal stall speed when flying straight and level. This can be reproduced in steep turns for example, or by pulling the stick back too quickly when entering a loop. Increase the airspeed to just below the max. permissible in a shallow dive, then pull back slowly and gradually on the stick, keeping the wings level with reference to the horizon left and right. As you go over the top, look over your head, and reference the horizon, and then reduce pressure on the stick to come out of the loop, and back into level flight.Hope this helps!BestGrahame (EDHL)Edited for speling
