Hard turn after landing

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I just finished a short flight from gatwick to schiphol (not with manual) and I ran into a problem.

 

Just after pushback, I noticed that my plane wanted to turn left immediately, like the wheels where still locked.

I ignored that by steering to the right, and no problems further.

But just after touch down,(ils land 3) my plane again (with 130 knts) wanted to turn left again, and was just able to stay on the runway.

I read somewhere you have to turn of AP and/ AT before landing.. but in the in the manual, it never stated that.

 

What am I doing wrong?

What am I doing wrong?

 

Do you have a rudder or brake axis assigned on your hardware?

I'm not sure what that means. if you mean whether I can control brakes or rudder via my yoke, then yes, I do :)

That's what I mean, yes, but an axis is like how your yoke moves and not a button.  Throttle levers are an axis, as an example.

 

My guess is that your yoke is sending a weird signal making it do this.  Try setting yourself up for an autoland and then unplug your yoke.  If it doesn't turn to the left when you land, then your yoke needs to be calibrated.

Nope. It still happened..

 

Even with the yoke unplugged?

 

Also, it's a forum requirement to place your full real name at the bottom of your posts.

It wasn't meant as a smart guy.. It was an honest attempt. I'm sorry if I offended.. Do I have to put it in the signature?

I hope my question gets answered though. :)

I didn't take it offensively, for what it's worth.

The signature that you're now using seems to fit the bill - thank you.

 

Okay, so can you taxi normally without the plane turning left?  Does this only occur on landing?

alright, I'm very sorry.. I was just surprised.

Anyway, it happens just after pushback, till I steer to the right to correct..

and again just after touch down.

Here's 2 wild guesses...1 do you have aileron and rudder coordination disabled?  2 have you checked the condition of the brakes and tires?

HI

 I recently kinda had the same problem just last night. I had done a flight a couple of days ago and had a hard landing. I think it was like 600FPM. Ya, i know ouch. So, On the next flight I loaded the saved Panel State from my previous flight like I always do. When I loaded the Panel State I noticed that the rudder was full right deflection. I re-centered the rudder with trim and did my next flight. Well, the landing on the next flight was a belly bomber as well. I thought what the? I had the whole approach right on the numbers.

 On the next leg I started the next flight with a new Panel State and i was able to land as well as I always have. I don't know if PMDG even modeled such a thing but it happened. The point I'm trying to make is it could be the panel state from which you are starting with. Just trying to be helpful.

Nope.. Only pmdg :/.. I read it has to do with A/P.. But that doesn't make sense while taxiing..

So let's think about what can make the plane veer to one direction.

 

1. Make sure you don't use auto-rudder (can be disabled in FSX settings)

2. do not try to do a single-engine taxi / make sure you control both engines

3. switch to external view to see if your rudder is deflected to one side without control input - which indicates some sort of controller issue (either hardware or software)

3. are you using any hacks that interfere with FSX' ground friction

4. does this happen at every airport or just at a specific location - maybe your gear gets stuck beneath the runway surface somehow. Especially check this if you are using FTX Vectors with older scenery

5. please open a support ticket with support.precisionmanuals.com - if this problem is documented, contacting PMDG will be able to help you

I tried the things you said..

1: I do use autorudder.. That is the default setting right?

3: Yes, it is indeed the rudder that changes to the left

3.2: Well, I use accu sim.. If that counts?.

4: It happens at any airport.

5: Wilco :)

I also notice, it only happens at touch down if the A/P doesn't engage before I touch the ground..

Disable auto-rudder and see if that helps.

 

Not sure if AccuFeel is causing the problem.

I contacted pmdg... end result, they have no idea.

I did notice something. i believe it happens only while using squawkbox. Especialy after pressing insert (transmit key)

Is there a key bound to insert in the pmdg? Does anyone else have the problem with squakwbox

 

Another question. What si the right order engaging A/P and A/T

 

First fmc setup, them FD, FD 2 and then A/T and VNAV LNAV ( all at the stand) or something elkse?
