747-8i Flare

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I have strictly no issue with the 747-8i so far.

I have however a strange behaviour on landing. Let me tell you:

- My first flight was BOS-FRA, arriving at FRA, everything's fine, touchdown (I was landing like a -400): my reversers won't work... how my, I was boucing along the runway (thank you RAAS). The second time I touched down, it was ok.

- Second flight: FRA-Bengaluru. On landing, exactly the same problem. I had to press brakes to the max resulting to an emergency evac at the end of the runway (due to a very long landing).

- Third and fourth flights: landing respectively FRA and PEK: same problem, I flared too soon, or I miscalculate the landing weight... the plane seemed to want to take off again, as soon as I touch the ground.

- Finally, landing SFO from PEK: I bounce all along the runway... My plane was heavy but normally ok....

The last landing makes me think I am doing something wrong or there's a problem somewhere... In SFO, idle throttle, the plane bounced maybe 3 or 4 times... I was flaring like a plane (maybe I am wrong).

Does someone have the same issue? I desactivate accu-feel, maybe it is the turbulence scale of Active Sky? It seems like, whatever the rate I touch the ground, the plane don't want to stay on it...

Ok Kevin,

I'll try this tomorrow to see.

I was thinking: I desactivate crash of any kind to avoid a sim stop for a misconfirgured vector, maybe it is related?

I click "random load" on PFPX and then directly enter the ZFW from it to the 748, maybe the CG is wrong?

Thanks for your help,
