Goose capsizes

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, My Stock Grumman Goose will not float upright. I tried changing the fuel and payload but it just rolls to the other side. Any suggestions? rnails

Were you the only one on the plane, and sitting on one side? I found that I had to put a co-pilot into the plane to balance it out if wing tip float is not lowered.

Hi, Of course,wing floats NOT wing tanks. Microsoft likes to hide this information. Too much fs9 is my problem. Now if you will tell me how to start in the water without having to turn on the battery and lower the floats without the passengers abandoning ship I would appreciate it. Starting on land seems to defeat the purpose of bush flying. rnails

Try saving it with the floats down as your default flight. Maybe that will work.Randall

I would think that somewhere in the aircraft.cfg there is a switch (0 or a 1) which will control whether the tip floats are defaulted to up or down. maybe?
