MVAMS screen for C310R

Recommended Posts

I have been reading a thread on erratic behaviour of the plane on takeoff which is my current experience. it was thought to be a poorly placed  C of G and talked of varying the amount and position of payloads, but can find no way of doing this. I thought that it would be an option through VMAMS but can find only options to change GPS type and starting state.

Should there be more options on VMAMS?

Thanks

Please show me this thread....

 

The plane has very VERY heavy torque so it will pull to one side.  You'll have to compensate with rudder.  This is in the manual.

Thank you for the reply. I did read it in the manual.

You will need to use the sim's own "Fuel and Payload" menu for setting up the loading of the pax and cargo.

C of G is under the control of the pilot. You did not mention what simulator you are using.  In FSX the C of G can be shifted around under the menu selection of Aircraft, Fuel and Payload.  You can balance out the fuel and payload by planning and then distributing the weight accordingly.  At times with light loads, like the default load of a physically trim pilot and copilot, forms of flight gear and even ballast can be moved, added (or subtracted).  Items such as emergency gear, golf clubs, duffel bags (you know, that bag always on board somewhere with a change of clothes and footwear).  Just as you change fuel and payload settings move stuff around like pieces of a puzzle and watch the animation show you the shift in CG as you do it.

The C310 is about 400 lbs lighter than a Beech Baron B55, and though the wingspan is only a foot or so less, it has smaller wings as part of the 310's wingspan is a wider cabin.  The Conti 0-470B engines are just slightly less powerful than that model Baron's 470L's.  I logged 78 hours in a military version of that Baron, and rode along many hours in the military version of the 310.  I can tell you that the 310 had a lighter more sensitive feel to it and pilots who flew both remarked about the difference and the necessary adjustments.

Thanks for the responses.

I had been used to using some payware planes with fuel and payload managers. I will check out P3D payload manager facilities and third party add ons for a little more realism. Anyone any experience of Payload Manager X?

Sorry, Milviz. I have hunted around for the above mentioned thread and cannot now find it.

Perhaps most relevantly, I thought I would re-calibrate my MFG Crosswind rudder pedals to see if that would help with the snaking along the runway, and the violent descent and bank to the right after take off.

I noticed with horror that use of rudder and brake pedals also caused a deflection of elevator and aileron. Examination of the control axes in P3D revealed entries for elevator and aileron in the axes on both the rudder and throttle quadrants as well as the joystick. I have no idea where they came from but they have been deleted from all but the joystick, restoring a great amount of stability. It’s late now but maybe tomorrow I will have a little more success with controlling this beautiful aircraft.
