X-Plane 11 Stinson L5 Erratic Crazy Ground Handling Revisited

Recommended Posts

F

Feeling like a challenge, I attempted to fly the X-Plane 11 Stinson L5
off of KMYR Myrtle Beach airport on a perfectly calm July 30, 2018.
After a veer off into the grass, I was airborne. Flew around for
about 20 minutes and upon returning on final to land, "what to my
wondering eyes should appear" but an Artificial Intelligence (AI)
Stinson L5, navigation lights blinking, moving from grass at the side
onto the runway accelerating for takeoff.
I thought I would touch down behind it, but all of a sudden, it veered
off the runway to the right in a cloud of smoke and spun out. I landed,
went by it sitting in the grass, and as I was slowing down, my L5, also,
veered into the grass. Stopped, I looked back and saw the AI L5 taxi back
onto the runway for another try. It accelerated down the runway and just
as it went by, it again, lost control and went careening off the
right side, circling back and almost hitting my plane.

I taxied back onto the runway, accelerated, got airborne without losing control, looked back and saw it trying to do the same, but repeatedly circling, spinning, and ground looping in a cloud of tire smoke and dirt. As I flew around watching, I finally saw it get airborne, in the grass going perpendicular to the runway.

Moral -  Don't feel incompetent.
Even the factory AI can't fly their own taildragger plane
in X-plane 11 - NO wind.

It's probably going to change starting 11.30 - fingers crossed :-)

I don’tknow why Austin won’t see that if the AI can’t taxi, there’s something definitely wrong with the modeling. Even in my early years of flying taildraggers, I never had any problem taxiing them.

They are not only making strange manouvres.
They taxi through buildings, other aircraft and even when they line-up, their propellers a milling through eachothers tails.
 

Turn of AI especially when you want to demonstrate XP to a friend.
