I'm pretty sure this is contained in the flight manual available at http://www.science-and-fiction.org/ :)



logoboyvdip you're totally right.Thanks for taking the time to answer. I decided look the model just after read the wiki main article and try to recognize some thing in a quick first look. Before properly read the manual. so it was my fault asking a bad question. Thank you and all the dev team.

I saw that the IDP 4 and rear screens were not "retrofitted" with the enhanced display logic

I think it is in the .eff files ?

hi there,
Concerning the sliding with the wind, I've opened a bug report here:

https://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/codetickets/2409/

I've tested different planes, A320, Cessna, they're ok with the same METAR conditions. Or, I may have gotten some icy exceptional conditions, dunno. I put this post here in case someone gets the same issue or has an idea on what's going on!

Cheers,
Chris.

Can you test the c172p with the same conditions? I noticed something just the other day that looked similar to this.

A little data!

I've done more tests with the Shuttle, it is subtle. I think this is only happening if the wind is from behind. Yes, I know... :) But starting with Shuttle-approach, sometimes, you end up in this situation.
As soon as you get some back wind ~ 25-30KT, wet ground, the Shuttle becomes a wind indicator, the nose strongly want to point towards the wind; but during the process of spinning by 180 degrees, it may get lock into a sliding motion with a side wind.

I've tried with the C172p, but I did not succeed to reproduce, although it clearly wants to do the same, but the ground friction seems higher.

If you have a wind coming from the front, the Shuttle still moves, but just by a small angle to get the nose to the wind. And you don't pass by this sort of locked sliding position with 90 degrees side wind.
