Aircraft tilts when taking off

Hi
As i first downloaded the app everything went fine. Now while i take off when i start rotating the aircraft tilts sharply right or left. Even without any winds and even with heavy aircrafts. Seems like a coding bug. Is there a solution for that?

First off Welcome to the community!

It’s probably a Calibration issue. Before you takeoff press the pause menu and get your device or yoke/stick in the right spot and press “Calibrate”

Could you let us know the speed at which you takeoff? As taking off at over 200 knots can sometimes cause this.


Unless its a calibration bug.

And it could be what @Hamza.N said.

@Ronen_Rosenman I notice this happens as well make sure whilst taking off you Adjust your calibration and use the rudder to stay in a straight line heading down the runway. I hope this helps if not could you provide us with some screenshots to help solve your case. Happy flying 😁✈️✈️✈️.

Yeah, you’re probably taking off too fast. Generally aim for a liftoff speed of ~180kts, but crosswinds do play a factor into the takeoff speed.

I’d say that 180 knots is a bit too fast, maybe occasionally with very big heavies but usually you wouldn’t really rotate that fast, best way is to use fpltoif.com or in-flight assistant and use those v-speeds

Yeah, I usually stick with a ~180kts takeoff speed. Works best for me but like I mentioned crosswinds play a factor into the suggested takeoff speed.

There’s been a few different potential “Solutions” How about we let the OP respond.

Yes i know the OP is TL0.

You are doing one of the following

  • not calibrating
  • taking off in a crosswind (check tutorials)
  • rotating too late. Almost all commercial aircraft in game can rotate at or below 160kts

170 seems realistic, but 130? Keep in mind I regularly use heavy aircraft.

Before we nitpick the proper takeoff speed, lets let the OP reply to the many questions. Aircraft, wind, weight, etc.

I used to have this exact issue, it has nothing to do with speeds and weights.
I fixed it by simply re-downloading the app.

@Ronen_Rosenman… MaxSez: Weather, Weight and Balance, Flap setting and V’s must all be considered. See the TUTORIAL “All Aircraft Take Off and Landing Speeds (Version 19.1)

Let’s just wait for @Ronen_Rosenmanto reply now guys it’s also me who needs to take this advice 👌👌👌

That’s always an issue with weather. You should be using your rudder to align yourself by the rotate speed.

Thank you guys. Appreciate the big support. I fly a 777 and rotate at 180. Im calibarating few times even while takeoff. Maybe crosswinds are the issue…

Maybe 180kts is the issue… That’s too fast. 150-165 is usually the right speed to rotate. If you have everything set properly.
