Dash-8 Rudder Issue

Odd Rudder Issue With The Dash-8 Q400

One of my favourite aircraft is for sure the Dash-8 Q400 but recently I had been having this issue with the rudder depending on the flap setting.


As you can see in the image above, I have full left rudder with 15° Flaps and from the outside view, it is not visible. I messed around with it a little bit and had discovered that the steering was actually still working and the problem seems to be that it was just not visible from the outside.


After doing more investigating, I noticed that this is only depending on the actual flap setting as shown in the second screenshot with the flaps at 35° And the rudder working.

I am not sure at all what is wrong in this case, but I have restarted my iPad multiple times and the problem is still occurring. I am just wondering if anyone else has ever had or at least noticed this issue as it seems that this has not yet been posted about.

I am using an iPad Mini 2 with Retina Display that has the most recent IOS update and most recent IF update.

If anyone knows of a solution/ way to fix this issue, please let me know!

Thanks for the support,

I can’t answer your issue, but when making a support topic, follow this template for faster help.


Can’t reproduce it from here, so it’s not a bug in the app. But there might be something wrong with your installation, so the best course of action would be for you to delete Infinite Flight and install it again. That should solve it.

Good luck!

Can you reproduce this yourself? Try it in a different livery or something like that, just to make sure it wasn’t a one time thing. Also, was this in solo? Sometimes, if flying in solo and you do a replay, things can get stuck. That could be your problem.

I’ll try that for sure thanks for your input!

I’ve tried all of that. I’ll try deleting the app but thanks for your tips. Take care!

Are your rudder and alerions coupled? Sure looks that way.

They are but you can tell that I’m using my rudder in this. Managed to get the problems fixed by deleting the app. Thanks for your help anyway though!
