Hey guys :) ,
I know you’re probably thinking “Why on earth is this topic even here???” . Well, I’ll tell you why. I’m trying to add more of a variety of aircraft I use in all my short haul routes but so far I keep running into trouble. For the boeing 737-900, I tried a variety of take off speeds from 135-165 kts and each time, the plane ends up spinning somehow despite my best efforts to steer it correctly.
Any constructive tips are definitely appreciated, as I am quite sure we all reached that point where we were once stuck too. Those who know me by now know that the embraers and the CRJs are the ones I am good at in terms of flying 🤣👍.
This should be in either #live or #support. My suggestion is use a little amount of rudder, pointing the rudder slide toward the direction the wind is going, based on the arrow next to the GS and M speeds, and if you have a joystick, figure out how it is so that your plane turns like that.
I use flaps 5, I think that’s standard in real life. With flaps 0 your rotation speed is going to be much higher. Sometimes up to flaps 25 can be used on a short runway when you’re really heavy, such as in Maui (PHOG) and you’re loaded with fuel going to the mainland.
@TRIavgeekMandy… MaxSez: For the 1000 time you correct “Yaw” with “Aileron” deflection. Rudder is secondary when necessary. Additionally, Touchdown is a 2 step process, “Round Out then Flare”. Finally, Take Off’s always require correct V’s and Flap settings for Weight/Wx.
Use the IF Library or Google, the settings are readily available. Techniques no matter the model for TO/Landing should always be practiced on SOLO for new models or/refresher no matter your skill level.
