Thread: Inverted flight in a C152??

  1. #1

    Default Inverted flight in a C152??

    Hi guys,

    Strange thing happened today. I was flying around in X-Plane and feeling slightly bored, LOL and decided to try a few manoeuvres in Carenado's C152.

    One of the moves I tried was to fly inverted. Not thinking that the C152 would last that long in that position, I was shocked to see that not only did she stay in that position but her speed stayed constant as well. There was also no cut out of the fuel either.

    I even had time to film a bit on my iPod as she was that easy to keep in that position, LOL.

    I'm not talking 30 seconds inverted either; I'm talking 4 mins plus and probably more if I could have been bothered to stay in that position.

    Very strange; but fun

    Well, it seems that X-Plane isn't as realistic as Laminar says

    What? No! That wasn't me!
    X-Plane rocks and it definitely doesn't let you fly inverted in a C152 for 4 minutes!

    If you want to, open the flight model in Planemaker and have a look under Expert/Special Equipment and check for a check mark in the box I highlighted in the image.

    Hello everyone.
    All that said, many C152s have been upside down more than once, and engines did not guit, and or restarted as soon as you get in the right side up, some people say.

    Hi Goran,

    Yes that worked; cheers for that!!

    I can still glide upside down for quite some time (if one is that sad), which does seem a little bit strange, but having the cut out now makes a noticeable difference.

    All these hidden secrets, LOL.

    Cheers

    You are right. X-Plane doesn't let you fly a C152 inverted for 4 minutes...unless specified by the add on creator.
    What versatility!
    Looks like X-Plane DOES rock.

    It's a shame the creator didn't check the settings, as the fix mentioned seems to make it feel more like a real C152.

    Apart from that, they (Carenado) did a nice job updating the Cessna to X-Plane 10.
