are you controlling the speed and direction of the pushback? those that i've seen do not just do it automatically... you have to actually control it in its own dialog box...
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."

"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
