PA28 unusable - cant get airborne



  • Hi all,

    Purchased the PA28R yesterday, cant get the damn thing off the ground.

    First issue, on take off, rotate and get airborne for about a second then the wing dips into a violent left roll and crashes into the ground, no wind, no weather, torque and P Factor off or on makes no difference. Tried low rotation at about 65 knots and high rotation speeds about 90 knots, same effect.

    Uninstalled and reinstalled to see if this would help, then on top of the first issue ...

    Second issue, the aircraft now loses steering capabilities and veers to the right on the take off roll usually fine up until about 30-40 knots, no wind, no weather, torque and P Factor off or on makes no difference.

    Jump into a MSFS default aircraft, no problems at all, completely flyable as I would expect as a real world PPL holder qualified on both PA28 and C152.

    Help with this would be most appreciated.

    Gary.



  • @Blake7 Can't be sure but it sounds as though your sim's flight model is on "Legacy" mode - the PA-28 will require it to be set to "Modern" mode.

    Yeah, it was, spot on !

    Working a treat now, thanks for the help.
