Airbus A380 Omega Takeoff  

Postby jestepp65 » Tue Sep 12, 2017 1:22 am

Hi,

I am experiencing a very rare problem that i don't know why is happening with this plane. I just installed and when i try to take off, the plane starts to climb but then gradually gets lower and lower until it hits the ground. Its like its not wanting to climb anymore. Whats going on? Am i doing something wrong?
Best Regards,

This is likely because the FDMs are not good, and you would have to resort to unrealistic tricks to get it to work.

Kind Regards,

That sounds like a stall: you probably are climbing too steeply! Try lowering the nose after takeoff to keep about 160 knots: the A380 does weigh more than one and one quarter million pounds (575 tonnes) at the maximum takeoff weight!
