Downloaded aircraft pull to left when taking off. Anyone else have this problem and is there anything that can be done about it? It only does it with downloaded aircraft even the new Eaglesoft Citation X I just purchased.
If you use a joystick, maybe it is too sensitive and whilst rotating you might be moving slightly to the left. Try increase the "null zone" or reduce the "sensitivity".
If it is too sensative, if you pull up it will go strait vertical, if it is low, it will take a little longer. try and set it to the middle 😀
A few people have posted this before and have this problem as do i, the only way i can get it right is to configure my joystick EVERYTIME i use FS and then it's fine. It seems that it loses the joystick settings when FS is switched off 😕 !
Do you disconnect it everytime inbetween?
Good question, but no, it's always left plugged in!
Hmmm, I always unplug mine, though I doubt this is the problem...
What joystick do you have ❓
Somebody said it has to do with Gyro Drift. Keep it off. Don't ask me why.
because most of the time it is the Gyro....i found that out the hard way....
i had this problem years ago and played with the settings and narrowed it down to the Gyro....though gyro is mostly the cause with props. ive never really seen this problem with jets.
I agree with JarJarBinks. The left turning tendency is usually with propellers and mostly noticed with single engined aircraft. It may occur with twin engine aircraft if the propellers rotate in the same direction, however not as pronounced as with the single. It should not occur with twin engine aircraft whose propellers rotate in opposite directions.
Though if you have FSpassengers, sometimes thrust is high on one, and lower on the other. 😎
