  1. For a couple of years now, FS2020 has been behaving inappropriately at touchdown and at takeoff. Occasionally there is an almost uncontrollable skid at the point that the aircraft tires first contact the ground (or depart the ground). This is exacerbated if there is any crosswind - even a mild crosswind can be problematic at times, but add in a stiffer crosswind, say in the teens, then you're talking about tires running on molasses and wings lifting off the ground even with full aileron deflection. I would estimate that this has happened to me about 30% of the time - in other words, it isn't a constant occurrence. Many times touchdown was fairly normal and liftoff was appropriate, even with stiff crosswinds. Then there is the other 30%, where loss of control is severe and there is hardly any response to control inputs. Lately, things have flipped for me - my last 3 flights have lost all semblance of reality at touchdown. Crosswind strength varied from 3 kts to 16 kts. In all 3 cases. the aircraft skidded across the runway with a bank angle of almost 30 degrees - aileron and rudder input did nothing. I was not able to reestablish control until I had braked to about 3 kts. Fortunately, the aircraft was not damaged in any of these touchdowns but it certainly ruined the enjoyment of having made 3 good approaches, Come on ASOBO! This is really basic stuff. If you cannot take off appropriately and land appropriately with proper control response, you do not have a flight simulator.

  4. Hi All, I guess I have found a point to make PMDG even more immersive. According to Flight Crew Operations Manual, even if flight directors are off during takeoff roll you can engage flight directors after takeoff by pushing TO / GA switch after 80 knots, below 2000 ft AGL and before 150 seconds after lift-off. I could not manage to do that in PMDG 737NG. It would be very helpful of you to confirm me. If you could manage engaging flight directors only by TO / GA switch after takeoff, please inform.

  5. Hi everyone, I have been using P3D 4.1 for quite some time now, and I feel quite confident in terms of my flying ability etc... however there is one thing I'd like to know about regarding Active Runways. For example, Active Sky Next tells you in the "Conditions" tab for a specific airport what the "Runways in use" are there. Basically, does this refer to LANDINGS or TAKEOFFS? or possibly both? I've been under the assumption that it means both takeoff and landing. For example at EGKK (Gatwick), it says runways 26L and 26R are currently in use, so does this mean both can be used for either takeoff or landing depending on the wind? I hope I've made sense! --Yorkie

  8. Hi all, Thought it was interesting to share some info I found with you guys. British Airways ships: G-BNLX MTOW is 396893kg and has a fast taper washout (Type A, 15000ft). No longer flying, dont have the seat plan. I guess it would have been around 345 seats. G-CIVI MTOW is 364000kg and has a fast taper washout. 275 seats. G-CIVX MTOW is 364000kg and has a slow taper washout (Type C, 5,5% residual derate @ 35000ft). 275 seats. Virgin Atlantic Airways: G-VROM MTOW is 362874kg and has a fast taper washout. At least, this is what I found... http://aerowinx.com/forum/topic.php?id=2469 (Aerowinx forum - topic about Climb Derate and Washout) https://publicapps.caa.co.uk/modalapplication.aspx?appid=1 (Site where you can find data about any G- registerd bird) Anyone with more infos or corrections, please let me know! Happy flying!! Alex
  9. I'm not using pedals, and it's hard to control the plane while taking off from the runaway. Is there a way to lock the nosewheel and keep the plane straight? If not, can someone recommend control settings for the Logitech Extreme 3d Pro? What is the elevator trim setting for take-off? At the default value of '0' the plane complains about the trim after take-off. Where can I get a guide or a user manual for the auto-pilot. It doesn't have to be the official user manual. A tutorial or walkthrough would be nice. I googled and a bit surprised to find out that they are selling what appears to be the official manual for the unit.
