Cirrus SR20 landing bug

I flew the SR20 just now and the landing went horribly wrong. The nose gear got stuck in the ground, causing my plane to ground loop. However, I later watched the replay and found that I touched down smoothly on the main gears. I also didn’t apply any down pressure on the stick after touchdown. I think it’s just bad physics.
Can one of you take note of this and fix it?

This happened to me too, It’s just the old physics of the plane.

Agreed. I dunno why they didn’t fix it.

Yes, it’s just old physics…no topic is needed.

Im guessing its a scenery problem try clearing the scenery cache

No. Physics problem.

I’ve experienced this as well. What I think it comes down to is that the SR20 is very sensitive to nose wheel inputs when landing. A small adjustment can spin the plane.

What works for me is to land on the main gear and then use just a little back pressure to hold that pitch attitude and keep the nose off the ground as long as I can.

I did… I don’t know why that happened

Could you share a replay? I’ve never had this happen before and I fly that aircraft quite frequently.
