I was flying muscat-Dubai in an airbus a380 and I had disconnected autopilot for final and then the plane’s speed just increased to 188kt then I powered down and it slowed to 170kt but no lower and then I increased thrust for a go-around but then it kept just floating above the runway am doing immediately went to 300kts I was pulling up but nothing was happening, I had the sensitivity on normal I changed it to high nothing happened, I also had no control over heading even before I disconnected autopilot It kept drifting to one side by banking, It can’t be calibration because I have never done a flight with calibration and this has never happened. Also I had an approach speed of 140 so when it started banking I thought I was too slow and Increased speed to 150 but it went op to 188.
The a380 is a old plane in IF, so I’m not surprised there are some issues.
It sucks because this was on EXPERT!
Oof. I feel bad.
Are you positive auto pilot was off?
Well I think you get the meaning of the term “expert” wrong because if you didn’t know the “expert” server is a place where pilots including you can enjoy a realistic and serious environment. So “expert” doesn’t change how aircraft behave.
Yes I was just using heading because I don’t exactly know how to hand fly heading yet but I do that all the time and nothing happens.
True, just saying that it was embarrassing because there were other planes there.
Then it isn’t your fault obviously.
Just give me a minute I will post a replay video.
Won’t let me post it.
Upload it to
And then post it here
Did you calibrate your device before disconnecting the Auto Pilot?
No but I never do and this has never happened.
I would recommend you to calibrate your device every time before you disconnect your autopilot.
Also what was your flaps at?
Will do next time.
That’s really not a good flight
What do you mean by not a good flight?
