Aircraft rolls right

Recommended Posts

Hi. 

I have recently installed the twin otter extended and I like it, its good fun but I am yet to fully learn the systems. One thing I have noticed is that when I am flying with neutral aileron input, the aircraft rolls to the left. It doesn't do it for any other aircraft so I know it's not a faulty yoke.

 

Anyone have any ideas what i'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

Hi,

Did you trim the plane correctly? It's very important to trim this bird.

You shouldn't need to do that, although it will mitigate the problem. Have you been playing with the fuel? If you have any fuel in the wing tanks (300 series) it is very sensitive to an imbalance. Other thing is to check your rudder trim is centred, particularly if you use an analogue control for it. (Look down below the right armrest to see the rudder and aileron trim settings.)

 

BTW, given that the rudder trim has a takeoff setting marked (to the right of centre) you should expect some left-rolling tendency on high power settings.

Thanks. I will take a look in a bit and get back to you.

 

Can you also recommend the custom FDE that is posted on this forum?

Sorry, I have not tried this.

Thanks. It was indeed a schoolboy error and I have been forgetting to reset the rudder trim after takeoff.

 

Whilst I am here though, can I ask why my elevator axis seems so sensitive? The roll axis is fine but the elevator seems extra sensitive.

That will depend on what you are using and how you have set it up! Regardless, you can make it less sensitive by using FSUIPC and selecting a suitable slope shape for that axis.

Yes I can. It's definitely an improvement. If you are using P3D, you should read the postings. There is one parameter having a negative impact. It's all in the threads here.
