Problem

Hi,

I have been having a problem - and this has occured with more than one a/c.

Everytime I start my descent or when I reach about 10,000 feet, (with AP on) my a/c lifts its nose and stalls - and im at about 240 knots!!!???

What is going on??

Thanks 😉

Have you checked weight distribution and CG in the Fuel and Payload section?

The first time it happened I had 100% fuel - as I normally do because I don't normally tamper with the fuel. The second time however, I put all fuel on 50% and I also added some payload - 100kg i think

But what was your CG (Centre of Gravity) like?

That used to happen to me all the time when I flew the default FS jets (737, 777). I think it is a mess up in FS, but I'm not sure. What aircraft are you using?

Jon what do you mean by Centre of gravity in relation to the aircraft and Sam, I was flying the POSKY model 😉

You Centre of Gravity is in the Fuel & Payload section where it shows a 2D diagram of the aircraft with a red cross where the centre of gravity is. If the CoG is at the back of the aicraft, then it could explain why your aircraft pitches up even when you have sufficient lift.

I can only suggest trying another POSKY model - I've never had that problem before Dont Know
