    Default Problem with Just Flight Piper Arrow PA28R/Takeoffs

    Having a problem with my Piper Arrow PA28R from Just Flight and taking off.

    I get going down the runway, hit my speed around 65-70, the plane starts to (what I call) "dance" around the runway (plane starts moving around left to right A LOT!). At that point, I pull back on the joystick slightly (like I do with the C182), nothing happens. I have to pull ALL the back on the joystick before the plane lifts off the runway.

    Once I am in the air, everything works as should, it's the initial takeoff that has me scratching my head.

    I've switched planes, gone back to the C182 (stock), took off from the same airport, and all it takes it a small amount of pulling back on the joystick to start my takeoff.

    I suspect something in my joystick setting's is affecting this. However, I am not that experienced in tracking that portion down, I've looked though the config files, but I know enough to leave them alone

    Perhaps you could adjust your trim setting to a bit more nose up. And you shouldn't wait until it "dances" before adding back pressure to lift off, it should be smoother than that.

    I will try and find that "trim setting". and will try to lift back prior the dance

    I've had that happen, especially T-tail versions, with trim or I've got the weight unevenly distributed

    Which trim should I adjust????

    Don’t feel it’s the weight, my realism settings are set to zero

    Is your flight model set to Modern instead of Legacy?

    Elevator trim, which affects the pitch attitude, where you are having problems. In real life a T-tail is a bit more awkward in that regime than a standard tail is.

    Also, I found out that my "dancing" problem is a bug with the AC. Been discussed on the Just Flight forums.
