There are two main methods for crosswind landing:
- crabbing (but it requires very good coordination during “kicking off the crab” – aligning aircraft axis with runway axis just before touching down)
- one wing low (this method is recommended in every book for small GA aircraft, because during an approach aircraft axis is aligned with runway centerline and because the upwind wheel touches first which is much better than touchdown on downwind wheel).
Is any of you able to perform “one wing low” landing in Dreamfleet Archer (or other GA aircraft) in FS9? I have CH Yoke and Pedals but I’m unable to perform this maneuver. It requires flying in crossed controls condition (eg. right aileron and left rudder for right crosswind correction) and always I try this I’m unable to hold steadily required level of bank or fly straight.
Do any of you have any experience with this maneuver? Could you offer me some tips? Or it’s impossible to use “one wing low” method in FS 2004? Or maybe it’s the deficiency of Archer (but Dreamflett Cardinal and Cessna 310 as well) flight model?
