Thrown out the sky

Ok so I was doing a flight from KBOS to KPHL I put stormy weather on. I was about 29,000ft I looked at the t.v then looked back at the screen and my plane was taking a dive a very steep one. I managed to keep it undercontroll and landed at KORN and saved my Air florida virtual airlines passengers lol. Anyone know what the prob was? I had crash off and stress off too.

Did you happen to check your speed? that happened to me while i walked to the bathroom. It stalled, and i killed everyone on board Delta Airlines 438 , a 737-800 going to Melbourne Florida from Atlanta. R I P virtual friends 😞

Were you climbing?, some times at high altitudes the aircraft speed reduces, meaning a climb of 1800 feet a minute causes problems.

At 30,000 ft. your VS should be around 1000-1300 ft/min the most if not less, depending on the aurcraft weight.

Maybe one of the virtual passengers virtually walked into the virtual cockpit and virtually turned off the AP?

When flying with autopilot on, you have to adjust your baromiter when you change the weather in flight. Other wise your altitude will be way off and you'll make a mad dive for the ground.

Oh thats happened to me a few times.. The strangest was while playing with the yaw damper button in a Lear. I turned it on and off a few times. To see if it did anything. I noticed it made the plane twitch. I tried it again and the next thing the sim rolls to the left and dives. Couldn't do a thing but crash. I have no idea if it was related to me playing around with the control, or wether it was some kind of software glitch with the controller. As afterwards I noticed the Saiteks controller had the rudder permanently hard-over. STRANGE!
