I have a new problem not experienced before.

Recommended Posts

What led to this problem I do not know, but it tends to veer to the left... only PMDG 737.

On final as I deactivate the autopilot, the airplanes starts to veer left and it is hard to keep on heading. Fuel imbalance is ruled out, I have equal amounts in wing tanks. Same happens on the ground from the start of simulation: the thing is extremely hard to taxi, it refuses to keep rolling forward in a straight manner. On take off and climb out, it may have this problem too but it is less noticeable because it isn't the same as aiming at the runway when landing. It became a hell to use because of this... otherwise the systems work as they should - lnav/vnav/airways/sids/stars/transitions etc... pressurization system ok, pneumatic, electric, fuel all work but the veering and steering problem.

Check your hardware calibration.

It is perfect, other planes do fine. May be a problem with horizontal trim.... or something else there.

Honestly, if you're seeing something like this, it's best to verify. Our aircraft are programmed to behave more realistically, so they're going to react to your hardware differently.

 

Try unplugging your hardware when it is doing this to see how it reacts. If it stops, it's your hardware.

Ok. The first thing I thought about is hardware, but other planes do alright including pmdg 777.

Will try your test...

If you are using FSUIPC and aircraft-specific profiles, might try deleting the existing 737 profile and building a new one

Another thing to check -- are you starting with or loading up a PMDG panel state that inadvertently has the rudder trim out of whack?

Good steer. Recently I took off from KSUS in my Turbine Duke v2 from a saved flight and the TDv2 assumed a terrifically high rate of climb. When I say terrific I mean just that. Reset the flight before I crashed and took off again, and it happened again. Reset a second time and stayed parked to check out everything associated with flight controls. Found out rather quickly that I had somehow reached an extreme position on the virtual cockpit vertical trim wheel when on the ground and then had saved the flight. The trim setting was captured in the save.

 

Needless to say, I deleted that saved flight.
