This may have already been pointed out, but I would like to report a graphical error with the Go-229 A-1 in which depression of either rudder pedals causes the graphical representation of both of the rudders to be pushed at once. This error can be reproduced 100% of the time in the QMB, but has no ill effect to the performance of the aircraft.

I do not get this. I rotate my stick rudder left and the left top and bottom slats appear and I rotate my stick rudder right and both right top and bottom slats appear, but never left and right at the same time. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What happens for you??

@ArgonV: He meant the rudder pedals in the cockpit. They indeed move incorrectly. Pushing the rudder to one side, they both tilt up, and to the other side they both tilt down.

Mr. Maddox,


Instead of being sarcastic, could you tell us if this is a bug or the correct operation of the pedals?

Im curious how the Go229 actually turns with the rudder as It doesn't have one. Is it done by causing drag or stopping causeing the airflow to change on one of the engines? Sorry for the n00b question but im curious.

Ah yes! I get this too! Sorry I thought you meant the slats outside when you press the rudder pedals either which way... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Oleg can this be corrected?

WOLFMondo, there are basicly braking slats on the top and bottom tips of the wings. These deploy and thus cause drag and the aircraft can yaw. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

There are air brakes at the wingtips. When you put on left rudder. the airbrake on the left wing will deploy, causing more drag on the left wings. Same for the left. I hope this helps.

The problem has nothing to do with the slats on the external of the aircraft. It has to do with the rudder pedals rendered in the cockpit.

You might also notice that the pedals themselves are placed backwards. Hard to explain other than to look at where your heel would fit into the pedal and rotate the pedal. At least it looks like it to me but I am on heavy painkillers from surgery ATM... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Also note that this occurs regardless of rudder controlling device (tested using keyboard, twist joystick, and CH Pro Pedals). I am using a clean install of Il2FB Gold edition.

I'm surprised Gibbage posts in the thread and doesn't answer the question, since he was the '229 modeller...

Is anyone else seeing this or am I the only one?

Hehe, Sorry Blitzpig. My career is as a software validation tester so I felt compelled to point it out. Thankfully it has no impact on the aircraft's performance itself and hopefully it will be easily repaired.
