Is there a way to make aircrafts respond slower to the yoke


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Is there a way to make an aircraft respond slower to yoke movements in order to get the feeling that the aircraft is heavy ?

Eg Several aircrafts immideatly take of when pulling the yoke back. A slower respond would make it feel more realistic.

Really that should be sorted out in the modelling of the aircraft, probably the inertia values in the AIRCRAFT.CFG file, for example. I'm not really familiar with that stuff, but perhaps there's an aircraft modellers forum somewhere here or in AVSIM?

If you assign the controls through FSUIPC then there is a delay facility provided. You need to assign the axes, then edit the FSUIPC INI file. Find the relevant axis and add "/n" after the Delta value (256 by default). The "n" is the number of milliseconds delay, so 1000 = 1 second delay. Please see this thread, not far below yours: Axis /delay deletes line in .ini update

You'll need the very latest FSUIPC update from the Announcements above, as there was a bug in this facility.

A light aircraft will do, if you are already fast enough. Of course it will very much depend on the weight (fuel load + payload/passengers) and amount of flaps set. But you should never just pull the yoke back far, just a little at first, then more -- you may get a tail strike if you raise the nose too quickly.

Regards

Pete
