this just stated happening
I put my flaps down like an normal person
one at a time
put for somereason, i have been doing that, and 2 times were the planes almost died
1, I was coming in for an approach, and when i droped the flaps from 3 to Full
the planes nose pitched up to 25 degress!
I do not have the replay bc i delete all my replays to save save space on my phone
and it happened 2 times!
what is going on? flaps should help the plane, not kill it
If your putting down the flaps too much at too high speed, this will happen.
So… slow down.
However, i put flaps Full at 150 knots
that is the thing
Depending on your weight and which model we’re talking about, i can see that happening.
Which plane? 150 is alright in an A350 or larger, but is smaller A320 for example… not so much.
(I use 135-140 in an A320 for full flaps)
alright, i was close the the MLW
around 7,000 KG away
And this was a A320
and the second time was a 787 around 20,000 away from MLW
I can’t reproduce it at all.
It does pitch up a bit initially if you’re on autopilot. But that’s expected since the lift increased and the AP needs to adjust itself. Manually, i can’t get it at all.
Would need a screen recording of this happening :)
ok, if it happens again, i will send you the replay and the time stamp!
I would prefer screen recording tbh.
The reason for this is because the replay only shows so much, but not the things we need to see to know more :)
for some reason, If i upload a screen recording
it says that i do not have permission to upload this
but i will try :)
Upload to YouTube/Vimeo or similar and link it in a post, that works :)
Yea i noticed that… Flaps full on an A350 would increase the left thus pitch up and ruin the glide slope interception… The aircraft then pitches too down to intercept the G/S which makes the approach unrealistic… IRL such things are compensated by an automatic trim I believe so you can’t notice it but here I believe you have to trim down a little bit (not too much) to compensate for this pitch up…
