View Full Version : Is this a FS2002 bug ?
I noticed that with both the default aircraft as well as with the DF734 that aircarft control becomes very difficult after an aborted landing. I constantly need to pull the stick back.
Anybody else notice this ?

yep...and without proper power and the proper flap and gear
up sequence mushy turns to bent airframe...just like the real

Pulling the stick back may not be your best option!! When you make a go around you are usually in the dirty configuration, low airspeed and low altitude, all which make for dicey handling. When you make the go around job number one is to regain airspeed as soon as possible, pulling the nose up in a slow speed condition will only make the situtaion worse. The trick is to use JUST ENOUGH stick backpressure to maintain altitude, that is to prevent any further settling and maintain that condition as the airspeed once again builds to the point where you can start cleaning up the airframe and start a climb. Of course the gear should be up as soon as the GA is initiated to reduce un-necessary drag, BUT the flaps should not suddenly be raised as you will be giving away a good deal of lift at a time when you need it most.
Contrary to what many people think, the STICK controls airspeed and the throttle controls altitude.
At low airspeeds like JUST before doing a go around the airerons are going to be much less effective than at high speeds thus the crappy handling.

No. Forward stick and trim with TOGA since I am trimmed UP for the preceding approach.
