Flight Control Issue

I have noticed that with some planes and one in particular, the CRJ-200, I have absolutely no ability to control the plane without engaging the autopilot. If I try to hand fly the plane floats or falls out of the sky. This means landing is impossible. At times the plane will present a nose down attitude and float through the sky before eventually crashing. The 717-200 is the same but not as bad. Does this happen to anyone else.

These are older flight models. Are you having any trouble with the new flight models (A318-A321)?

The crj is pretty difficult to fly but the 717 is not hard to fly.

I just did a great flight in a 717. Not one problem.


You probably had your sensitivity set too high, or you didn’t calibrate properly. Check these settings again to see if it is any better.

I’ve mastered the CRJ-200. To me its easy.

No, only with the planes that have been on IF for a long time. I don’t fly the CRJ2 or 717 because I’m not able to land them.

With mine there are times that I can move my device around and nothing happens with the CRJ2.

Yep, the 717 is a very hard aircraft to land. And also has engines on steroids.
