Hello, whenever I try and fly the CRJ series on live servers, the FPV always ends up above the altitude indicator which causes a nose-down landing every time, and I can’t seem to resolve it. Any tips?
Many factors may contribute to this such as speed, flaps etc… or not calibrating the device.
A couple things that would cause this FPV to be above your aircraft pitch:
- Flying too fast for the aircraft load you’re at
- Flying at a higher rate of speed with flaps extended
If you are in cockpit view, it might just be misaligned which happens sometimes, simply double tap your screen and it will be fixed.
Is your issue that the plane lands with the nose down?
You are too fast. You have to slow down during cruise and also at landing when you see that your FPV is above that line.
Can you tell us at what speed were you travelling at when landing?
Here is what I do starting at 150 feet. At the speed of 140 knots reduce throttle by 5 percent then start flare at 25 feet and reduce throttle to idle at 8 feet. I land at a 2-5 degree angle every time and grease it. I fly CRJ aircraft very often. This is for the CRJ7. For the CRJ2 reduce throttle starting at 130 knots and start flare at 15 feet. For CRJ9 reduce throttle starting at 145 knots and start flare at 30 feet.
Landing was at 140 knots tho, which I have also tried in solo in the same conditions I had in live and everything went perfectly fine, but the same issues occur when heading back to live mode.
I’ve just tried it in the exact same conditions in solo mode, and everything went perfectly fine, but whenever I go into a live server, the FPV appears above the altitude indicator when the same fuel, speed, flaps and weather conditions are applied.
Tried double tapping already, so that shouldn’t be the problem.
Reduce throttle from 140 knots slightly at 150 feet for the CRJ7 and start flare at 25 feet. Upon landing your angle should be 2-5 degrees.
@EricBlogGamer… Looks-to me like you have a calibration problem or your red lining Trim. 1) The “Altitude Indicator” is in fact the Artificial Horizon (Bulls Eye) a fixed Horizontal Line with a V in its center. For a normal 3deg pitch down approach the V should be .3 down on the scale lines. the FPV (Ball) is the aircraft’s true direction of flight with wind considerations. Fly the Ball to the V on approach for r a perfect Line up to the threshold.
2) Insure your “Trim” indicator is not red-lining…
Adjust it as you transition to and from cruise. Always Calibrate before Taxi which adjust your center of gravity based on load factor. You Trim should show neutral, no red showing.
Giver it a try and you’ll find it’s not the Plane it’s technique.

Max always saZ: right thing.
Your trims wrong or wrong flaps and too fast if you disconnect auto pilot you will shoot up.
FPV indicating where you gonna end up even tho your pitch looks downward.
