Ok, I have flown the supplies to Denali Base Camp. After landing they ask you if you want to fly to the Medical Camp to pick up a passenger. I accepted and cannot takeoff! No matter what I do the plane starts to veer to the right and I continue to slide in a giant circle. I cannot straighten the plane no matter what. As well, I cannot gain any speed. I've tried ski's up, down, rudder postions, all to no avail. It feels like one of the brakes is on but it is not. I have tried taking off with the same plane in the same conditions on other missions and on my own and I never have a problem. What's up?
Still going crazy on this mission, Paul
how hard did you land to drop off the supplies. If you land too hard you break your prop and are unable to takeoff.
the props fine
Hi try reflying the mission and save your flight before you land.
You might have had a hard landing. I have flown this mission a few times
without a problem
when you landed at base camp, did you manage to land on the runway marked by the red pilons? It is pretty flat there so you shouldn't be sliding around. It sounds like you may be on an ice slope and therefore unable to control your plane. I've found that once you land the plane, you become more of a passenger on the ice than a pilot.
Well, it looks like Llain was right. I flew the mission again and had no problem taking off again at Base Camp, and at the Medical Camp cliff. I suppose that even though I did not break my prop on my Base Camp landing, the landing was hard enough to muck something up. What a learning experience! Thanks everybody, Paul
