Flaps behaviour in Turbo Arrow: Aerosoft purchase



  • I saw the other thread here on flaps behaviour, but I experienced this last night as well doing circuits. I cannot imagine that this is the intended behaviour...

    I bought the aircraft two days ago in the sale over at Aerosoft. Is it possible that Aerosoft doesn't have the up-to-date release? I cannot see which version it is that Aerosoft sold me, as there is no version number any where. The files are mostly dated 10 February 2019, however...

    This will stop the aggressive nose down pitching on flap deployment that is noticeable under certain circumstances, which are best explained by Dan Klaue of Thranda Design here: https://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/171747-pa-28-turbo-arrow-trim/&tab=comments#comment-1596760

    The Turbo Arrow IV (T-Tail) is now much more manageable and certainly does not require the trim I was having to dial in before. She now lands like I am sure she should...
