[FIXED] World Update 3 has broken flight dynamics, exhibit A

Or at the very least test updates before making them live lol. Crazy to think this “update” was delayed for polish right?

Can you explain this? All under these headers? Delete all else? Only “lines”? Which “lines”?
This for the Beech Baron G58 & SR22

Thanks a ton for doing this fix! Quick (I know and dumb) question - I’m totally new to MSFS and I’m not sure if I place the folder in the community folder, or I empty all the contents of the “fix” folder into the community folder?

I point out once again that I promise nothing, they are just attempts

The flight_model.cfg contains many elements ([WEIGHT_AND_BALANCE] - [CONTACT_POINT] - [FUEL], etc …
some are clearly built on the model of the airplane, it is useless and dangerous to change them

[AERODYNAMICS] is the only one that has a lot in common with many aircraft and is among the ones suggested by ASOBO to get your hands on

You ask me if a mess can happen? likely
You ask me if a future update of ASOBO will reset everything? I do not know

[FLIGHT_TUNING] For those who, like me, have customized FSX badly, they know what I’m talking about, if you have no idea it makes no sense to touch anything

If anyone wants to try it, just lets you know how it went
At least I know I’m not crazy

I do not remember SR22
but the Baron G58 didn’t have the flight_model_cfg (like 787)
I can’t explain why
so if it is to be introduced we might as well leave only the content of [AERODINAMICS]

And then as always
try, try, try
with every change you make

Place the community-flap-hotfix folder in *Packages\Community*

Not checked the 801 replies to this thread so I don’t know if this has been asked
With the “workaround” how are you able to implement this on the SR22? All of the files are encrypted and I can’t find a flight model file anywhere? Would appreciate any help at all :slightly_smiling_face: TIA

I can’t help on this
maybe it depends on the type of installation
I have the game downloaded on Steam and can see everything
hope someone can help you

I will take at face value the stated reason it wasn’t seen was that QA was not looking for this type of change and therefore it wasn’t seen before release.

However that doesnt excuse the fact that it got in there in the first place (Development process allowing anything to go in without a discussion on how it might effect the whole game) and the QA process not having a simple flying check and saying “Hey this is different” (Its possible they did and was told its ok for release but thats not how it was stated publicly). I could tell first flight something had drastically changed flaps wise and not in a good way. As this is now happened with almost every patch I am at a loss on how the project process has not improved for these updates. I can see this happening once but you have post mordems - you discuss what went wrong and you improve…that doesnt seem to be the case here.


We released a hotfix for the A32NX mod shortly after the UK Update came out, well before Asobo announced the issue.


King Air is practically unlandable, it just won’t slow down, it’s mainly during appraoch you notice it, but take offs are automatic, no need to rotate.

I believe you are correct. Flap settings listed as the only issue is misleading and - to be bold - patently false, if my own flights post-update are any indication. The aircraft I’ve tried so far accelerate at a faster rate and climb performance is superior. In all but one instance (with the TBM) takeoffs have been entirely without the use of flaps. The TBM actually feels worse than before with relation to climb out. More testing is required, because the software crashed to desktop fifteen minutes after takeoff yesterday, and again ten minutes after takeoff this morning.

I performed a RESET from the Apps section in Win 10, which deletes all locally installed files. I am in the process of reinstalling this afternoon; we’ll see if that solves the CTD events I’ve experienced post-update.

With this software, patience is a virtue.

Got it - just placed the folder there and it seems to be working!

Does anyone know where to find this flight_model.cfg in a Steam installation?

In my case, for the C208, it’s in here:

C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Official\Steam\asobo-aircraft-208b-grand-caravan-ex\SimObjects\Airplanes\Asobo_208B_GRAND_CARAVAN_EX

You should find it for the other aircraft too in the folder:

C:\Users<username>\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft Flight Simulator\Packages\Official\Steam

Personally, I’m not touching the files in the standard package at all.

If anything, I’d use a mod that has the fix included (I think the C208 improvement mod has it already).


Use the flightsim.to community folder one I’d say, not worth manually modifying


You can’t apply fix to encrypted planes.

I think the guys here need to get an update out ASAP for everyone. We should not be expected to go under the hood to fix a problem that makes this SIM not work.
