View Full Version : Stering high speed lockup bug.

I found that elevator freezing is counted from TAS. not IAS. Mabe Im wrong but I think its a bug. For example down low at 300 kmph IAS. is all fine but at the same speed up high controll surfaces are locked up.

Compression varies from aircraft-type, speed and altitude. 300 KPH IAS means a lot higher TAS on high altitudes. If it's only that, it may be a bug. But then, high altitude flight-modell was always a problem in this sim and I wouldn't wonder if this is actually part of it. On the other hand it may be, that the aircraft handling simply is much worse on these altitudes. Don't forget: the thinner the air, the less responsive the plane.

elevator "freezing" should be modled after Mach AFAIK.
and in my ingame experience its it not modeled this way.
an example would be the P-38 - at lower alts it should have no "freeze" at all http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

lets see what the next SoW engine will bring.
here will nothing change anymore !
