PLane doesn't take off

Guest1 Guest

Hello everyone,

Any jet, (apart from Bombardier), I try to take off at even major airports such as Gatwick or London Heathrow don't take off, they eventually take off miles away after the runway strip- why is this happening?

I have flaps set correctly, speed and trim and I rotate at the correct times but the plane just doesn't take off.

Please could anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

I don't know your computer specs, especially the video card but that could be it.
Try lightening the fuel and cargo load and see if that works.

Hi there,

Many thanks for your reply - it seems to not make a difference.

I notice that once it even slightly comes off the ground after over running the runway, if I engage auto pilot altitude holder it will act normal and go that height but if I leave A/P off and push up, the plane just continues to stall.

Any ideas?

Many thanks again!

I had that problem with a AN225 many years ago with an old computer.
I bought a better video card and then the aircraft took off.

My PC is a very high spec system. Turns out it's a joystick issue as if I plug in another one it works fine- although I want the old one to work because the new one doesn't have pan button!

Thanks anyway.

Great! Glad you were able to fix it the easy way.

Thank you!

Would you happen to know what is wrong with the joystick as I am really used to it and love that particular brand and the fact it has a pan button.

Many thanks!

Go to it's site, clean out the software you are now using for it and download the latest they have.
Yours could be older or corrupted.
Just a guess.
