Strange Heading Issue

Recommended Posts

The last couple flights I've made with RC 4.01 have given me some strange instructions, at least IMO.I tune the tower and never even get to ask for take-off, I just get the response to taxi and hold and then take off.Now what's strange is, I'm told to fly a different runway heading as I'm told to take off. Like "Candler 93, cleared for take-off, fly heading 070, climb and maintain 4,000". This was last night with a runway heading of 93 degrees out of 8L at KATL. The minute I get airborne, I'm asked to turn to this different heading. Shouldn't I be able to get clear of the runway at least?? I talking within 300 feet AGL.Also, it happened at KPHX. I was cleared for take-off from 25L, which is a 258 degree heading, but told immediately to turn to 250??My flight plan in both cases were without a DP, but the KPHX flight plan was direct to BXK, so my heading should've just been a couple degrees different from the runway heading. I think the GPS said it was 260 to BXK.I rebuilt my scenery DB just in case, but I haven't added anything that should cause this issue.Oh, and I was given a new/different squawk code during my IFR too. Is that normal?Thanks

Okay thanks. My altitude deviation is set to default 300. In some cases I wouldn't have thought twice, but both times they were within seconds after lifting off. Oh well, I'll pay attention to it and if it happens again where I think it's too low for a heading change, zip it up and e-mail the debug file.
