View Full Version : Dropping left wing

After I've installed the 4.01 patch(I'm not sure if it's related to the patch), every plane I fly, the left wing keeps botheringly dropping, thus rolling the plane. This wouldn't happen before.

My joystick is correctly calibrated. Is this normal or am I having some joystick issue?

With the new patch the effects of engine torque were greatly increased. You need to dial in some opposite trim, or in airplanes with no trim give manual rudder input to keep the plane straight and level.

Take a bicycle wheel off a bike, and spin it. Hold the hubs and feel what happens http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif

Your stick is fine. The engine is producing torque which wants to flip the airplane on its back.

What aircraft do you normally fly? Different aircraft require some different strategies.

In general: trimming, flying at rated cruise speed, and just manually holding onto the rudder a bit will do.

I haven't got a prefered aircraft... I try to fly always a different one.

Err... I'm a bit ashamed to say, but I've been away from flight sims since Chuck Yeager's Air Combat(1992), and things have changed a little bit lol...

So... what does cruise speed mean, again?

It's about 2/3rds of top speed, roughly

It varies from aircraft to aircraft of course, but you could think of it vaguely as a speed which puts the aircraft comfortably well within it's limits without stressing anything
