Critical Mach nose tuck

Recommended Posts

Hi Im trying to model a sharp nose down when a certain mach has been reached,This works but its a little sharp and the aircaft ends up doing a very large outside loop:D (A:AIRSPEED MACH,mach) 0.8 > if{ 10384 (>K:ELEVATOR_SET) } I thought about using the trim but as the aircaft has a very large trim handle in the VC it will be noticed :)Any ideas :)ThanksWozza

Hi,If what you need is a smooth application of down elevator, you can use Arne Bartel's "exponential averaging" formula (yn1=yn*D+(1.0-D)xn1) posted in this forum, for "damping" the increment.Tom
