very poor climb rate

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Run into a problem today I've never faced before. Departed from LTBA for OMDB, with the PMDB B77W. After 10,000ft the plane leveld and took a long time to reach 300kts. Next the climb rate was extremely slow, like <50 ft/min. When it reached FL210 after much time, it settled there and couldn't go higher. Weather is irrelevant as I tried with both AS16 on and off.

Any ideas?

Ok, I'll answer to myself. I started the flight from the beginning and it's now going fine. Climbing with 2500 - 3000 ft/min at the same altitudes. The only thing I can suspect is maybe the fuel track of GSX. I  maybe haven't selected to not only simulate fuel loading and messed my CG in the first flight. Good everything is fine now :)

This is usually due to having a flap axis assigned in FSUIPC, and/or having that axis not properly set up. I can't help with the latter, but to test without losing your settings permanently, drag the FSUIPC.ini out of the <sim>/modules folder and put it in the root sim folder. If the issue goes away, it's something in your FSUIPC.ini file. You can either try to go in and fix it (which I can't help with - I'm not very knowledgeable there), or you can delete the one you dragged out and start over with the one that was created when you moved the original file out of the folder.

Thank you very much Kyle for the reply! Could also be that, because I assigned the screenshot button to F11 before this flight. But as I said I did the same flight after and the problem went away, so i could also be GSX. I'll keep you updated if the problem persists I'll try removing the .ini file as you suggested. Thanks again!
