Kirk Posted November 14, 2018 Share Posted November 14, 2018 Just a story that hopefully will help other new flight simmers. As I took off from KSFO I noticed that immediately my little C172 began, ever so slightly, veering to the right. I knew I'd selected "clear skies" in FSX before beginning, so it wasn't a wind. I adjusted for this for about 20 miles until I figured I should stop and see what the problem was. I rebooted my computer, reinstalled drivers, even took apart my yoke and poked around in there a little. I discovered that it was only this continuing flight (I'd already flown from LAX to KSFO) that was veering off course. New flights were fine. I decided to go ahead and make the flight to Mendocino as planned, hoping that the next leg wouldn't have this bug in it. Halfway to Mendocino I discovered the problem (I'm sure many of you experienced pilots already know the answer). Somehow I had set it to only use fuel from the left wing, which by now was half depleted. The right wing was 100% full! Who knew that more fuel in one wing would cause the plane to veer in that direction? Obviously I didn't or I might have checked that first. :D Prepar3d v4: HP Omen Desktop.
