Trim problem? Aircraft climbs steady after takeoff


Recommended Posts

After a third... takeoff from the aircraft carrier. The F-18 climbs up and I can not fix it / balance it with trim.

 

 

I tried to fix it by using the reset-trim and reset button before takeoff, but not effect. It looks like the trim is not recognized / activated. To I have to press a button in the plane to activate it?

 

 

Joystick and HOTAS is fine.

Flaps half for carrier takeoff. Trim between 16-18 depending on weight. Trim should reset when you bring the flaps up and that should fix your space shuttle liftoff.

Can I see aileron and elevator trim (values) on FCS or anywhere else?

 

Looks like the elevator trim isn't working.

 

 

 

Well, I focused on the flaps setting for the carrier takeoff, but the problem happened again.

First, make sure “game mode” is not selected within main menu options of DCS. This setting has adverse effects on many aspects.

 

Yes, you can see control surface values via FCS page. The FCS page will display leading and trailing edge flaps, along with rudder, ailerons and stabs.

 

FCS reset (if load out has changed)

Control surface wipeout

Flaps to half

T/O trim reset

Adjust trim (nose up) so stabs show 16-18 on FCS page

Hook up to cat

Another control wipeout for good measure

Reference FCS page do ensure all values are acceptable

Launch

Gear up after clearing deck

Flaps up shortly after retracting gear

 

Aircraft should behave as normal/desired.
