Whenever I try to turn in a plane, I go into a spinning stall. However, my airspeed is over 300, so it can't be the slow speed. What causes this stall?



Also, does a confirmation message pop up when you adjust trim? How do I know if its working?

1. what plane?

2. That's a high speed stall/spin.

A stall is not caused by low speed, it is caused by too high of an angle of attack. Angle of attack is the angle at which the airflow meets the wing. The elevator controls the angle of attack. Pulling back on the stick causes the elevator to increase the angle of attack. Pulling back too much causes a stall. A stall can occur at any speed.

And where are those guys saying it is impossible to stall anything in FB?

OK, there were some great points. If I may ill ad one.
Iv bin flying for about three months and have stalled and crashed more times than i can count.
When you hear and see your plane shake or fibrait then it's time to back off on the joystick a little, if you dont you stall. when your in a dog fight it's good to know your plane. What it can and can't do, that way you can push it to it's limit.
Dont' wory, try and lern from your mistakes. Stick with one plane for a bit, get to know it.

Good Luck....

two things will cause a stall at speed


- excess bank .. logically at 90 degree bank there is zero lift so you will stall regardless of speed with ttoo much bank

- dynamic stall .. sudden yanking on the stick will stall the wing more common in dives than turning but still an issue


(dynamic stall is a common real-time cause of controlled flight into terrain .. the pilot sees the ground looming in a dive, panics, yanks the stick back and then stalls at 400+ kmh, the nose comes up but the aircraft follows the previous flight path)

Do you play Il-2 Sturmovik, or the stand alone sequel, Forgoten Battles?
They have kind of diferent FM...

I have both of the games. Which plane is the best for beginners like me?

I learned to fly in the IL-2's. Very stable, nice speed for learning also. Making landings was easiest for me in the beginning if I tried to keep my speed up near 190km/h, and a very shallow, low landing approach.

Good Luck!

There is no confirmation message for trim controls. You do have to hit the control keys a large number of times in most aircraft (20+) to make a noticable difference. The I16 does not have trim control.
