Hi there, It is a great shame that V3 does not have a steep approach button for the infamous EGLC approach and looks like it never will. I've tried 2 approaches into EGLC recently and have had to divert elsewhere. Throttle idle (manually not with autothrottle) and flaps full, the aircraft just speeds up way past 160 making it impossible to land. V2 did not have a steep approach function either but the speed stayed near enough on the desired approach speed give or take 5knots. I was wondering if there is a way to either change the configuration so it behaves like V2 or change the configuration to make the spoilers available beyond flap 2 and below 180, so we can imitate the steep approach function. I look forward to hearing from Feelthere and other pilots. Happy Flying
This hopefully hasn't been covered before, I did find one post somewhere on the internet where somebody had this identical problem, but no solution. FSUIPC4 4.939 dowlnoaded yesterday after fiddling with default FSX-SE for 2 days trying to assign my Saitek pro flight yoke, throttle quadrant, and pedals. I learned more messing sith FSUPIC & youtube in an hour then in 6 hours the FSX default way. Anyway, the problem I could not figure out in FSX, and I am having the same issue in FSUIPC - the spoilers. I assigned they spoiler axis to my Y-rotation axis (the third sliding lever). I directed it right into FSUIPC calibration. I calibrated the range (an oddity I just went with was the fact that theres a center calibration - I would think min/max would be more appropriate for a sliding axis). Going into the game, the spoiler kind of has a mind of its own. Starting from retracted, sliding the lever up the spoilers start to go up mirroring the movements of the slider. Then at some point the spoilers just take off on their own and go to full up, and will stay up no matter what setting the slider is on. Only when sliding up my throttle lever (the first slider) do the spoilers come back down. This happend in FSX default as well prior to installing FSUIPC. Exiting to my computer control panel, checking the Saitek calibration window, the slider is working smoothly throught its entier range... as far as I can tell it is working perfect. Any ideas?
Hi Recently my spoilers have stopped working properly. This started after I installed the Majestic Dash 8. Now when I deploy spoilers in flight the aircrafts pitch up like they have hit a wall and soon starts to stall I have assigned the spoilers to an axis on my Thrustmaster Warthog using FSuipc. I notice that when I go into calibrate joystick the elevator trim axis moves with the spoiler axis even though I have not assigned anything to elevator trim. I have tried assigning another axis to the elevator trim but problem persists. When I deploy spoilers mid flight the elevator trim goes full nose down. Both axes seem to be controlled by the axis I set to the spoilers. I have controls in P3D switched off so no conflict there, also no conflict with Linda. This is affecting all aircraft. Any advice gratefully received. thanks C
