Hi everyone,

I bought the ATR the other day and I have severe problems rotating it.
When the trim is set anywhere in the green band I need almost full backpressure on the control column to lift the nose off the ground.
Once the nose is off however it simply rockets to the sky with about 7-10° per second.

I tried a felt million times now and it is simply impossible to rotate with a normal constant 1.5-2° per second.

Does anyone have some tricks here or even better, modifications to the aircrafts files to improve the rotation rate?

Cheers in advance!

Greetings from the 737 flightdeck!

The FDE has been designed so that you can achieve a smooth rotation and a stable initial climb out with the elevator trim at neutral.

Have you tried taking off without touching the trim (and flaps 15)? 

The earlier you are trying to rotate, the more back pressure is required to get the rotation going.
