It’s also the only plane I bought (at launch) and recently uninstalled after trying it again, like @MiddcoreGaming
No improvement in level flight performance since launch.
I can get virtually every plane to fly reliably stable w/o autopilot, but not the Beech 18.
As described far up in the thread, the behaviour is completely weird. You fly perfectly level for a short time, and suddenly the plane starts diving like a rock.
My final test was: let the autopilot fly level, then deactivate it and watch the dive shortly after…
Actually I’m pretty sad about that, because I really like the design.
Taking the DC-3 as a relatively similar plane now, no issues there.
I love the feel of this plane after applying your mod! And the bounciness is much improved. I hope the trim issues for the others is gone too. It seemed a bit steadier in level flight for me but they were short flights with very little wind.
bounciness on landing is basically gone for me. I made three flights using the mod and all three I successfully made soft two point landings on the mains and then let the tail settle. astounding! the plane actually behaves the way one would expect.
also, the trim isn’t borked for me either. I can actually take my eyes off the vertical speed indicator and look at other things in the cockpit and heaven’s forbid, I can even look out the windows occasionally without the plane moving up or down at a 2000 fpm clip.
I tried the Beech 18 for the first time this past weekend. I really like it, but the engine sounds are too quiet and I struggled to land it smoothly. Overall, I definitely enjoyed it, though, it was a lot of fun to fly. I do wish they would have included Matt Younkin’s livery.
I’m imagining little icons under our Avatar that show what we use, based on info in check boxes in our profile when we create the profile.
The problem with Signatures is there’s no standardization to them, and not everybody does them. Of course, at this point a WHOLE LOT of people would have to edit their profiles. Although maybe it could be eased if some sort of routine was created that if they’re not filled in, and you access a forum, it pops up a window asking you to say which system(s) you use.
Edit: Oh, great! @ExplorerJB just pointed out all the info is already there. It just needs a change to the forum avatar area and we’d be all set. I think that would be pretty cool, too!
If you click on a username you can see what everyone plays on, but most people - myself included - never click to see. It’d be nice to have an icon(s) below our avatars along side our posts to show what we play on.
But I don’t want this to get too off topic, I know they’re pretty strict about threads staying on topic.
I only bought this a couple of days ago and have been plagued with very similar trim issues to what you are experiencing. Always trying to fly me into the ground no matter what trim inputs I made.
I finally found my problem, the AI trim assistance was on in assistance options / piloting. I have no idea how it was turned on as I never used this before.
Turned off it flys as it should, no kamikaze stuff when off the controls.
Maybe something similar for you?
