Does the 757 thrust = rocket-ship?

Idk if it’s just me but I don’t like to fly the 757 anymore because of it’s thrust power. You can literally do VS of 12,000 and maintain speed because IF had fitted the 757 with rocket assistance? Or some magical thrust power. Also on take off it takes about 100ft for lift off. I think the 757 has to go though a redo of aerodynamics and just everything. 😂 Do you guys agree?

I lost the recent vote to the 777 and many other aircraft.

I voted let’s hope it gets somewhere 😬

Yeah I’ve noticed that years ago when I started playing Infinite Flight. I just have to reduce power on take-off and climb.

I never fly it anymore because the physics of it are just so different than other reworked aircraft in Infinite Flight.

Even the look of it from the front doesn’t look like a 757. The fuselage looks like a piece of dough when viewed from that angle.

Look at it’s takeoff speed compared to most other jets😂

Yea I did realize that a lot earlier and I fought it was cool now it’s starting to annoy me

That’s so true 😂

The 757 probably has the worst physics of all planes in the sim.

The C17 is not much better 😬😂

The 757 is one of the worst if not the worst Aircraft in Infinite flight. Everything is just that bad about the aircraft. I’m never flying this aircraft unless it is fully reworked.

Its crazy to admit, but i havent done a single 757 flight since global came out. Hope for a rework soon, but it doesnt look good, considering how low the 757 scored on the «next aircraft» poll.

The poll doesn’t mean much the Fds even joked before how bad it looks on how things were done differently a couple of years back to now for sure it’s in the plans to be reworked.

Yea bit worried

I have to agree with you, its just too light.

The 757 is an interesting one… you can use thrust reversers in-flight. Could it be the engines?

I don’t know how the game is modeled but I imagine that N1 100% equals the published maximum thrust power. Try to lower the throttle input so you don’t cross 95%N1. You should get more realistic results.
