737 unaffected by crosswinds?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

Does anyone else find that in FSX the PMDG 737 is barely affected by crosswind conditions on landing and takeoff? Every time I'm about 300 feet above the ground even with a 35 knot crosswind the plane can de crab perfectly and I'm flying the last mile with no crosswind effect at all, even though the NAV display still reads a strong 30 knot wind coming in perpendicular to the approach course. Flying before 300 ft, the plane flies an approach influenced by a crosswind as expected, but I do not know why the wind's affect just disappears for me during the final part of the approach. This happens only in the PMDG 737 (only PMDG I own) and not in default planes and other payware. Only weather addon I use is FSWX for real world weather updates. Any ideas? Is this meant to happen?

This is more likely the answer, honestly.
