Optica wont accelerate past 40 knots on takeoff, then goes into oscillation on runway. Any suggestions how to fix?


Recommended Posts

Just purchased and installed the new Optica.  Looks like a great aircraft for low-level flying.  I am having difficulties on the takeoff roll.  I set takeoff flaps and parking brake is released.  I cant accelerate over 40 knots and the aircraft goes into an oscillation.  Then the sim crashes saying I have damaged the landing gear.  I am guessing it is something to do with ballast or similar.  I have reduced eyesight and have difficulty reading the manual.  Can anyone suggest a fix to the takeoff?  Thank you.

Thank you.  Setting the Flight Mode to Modern has solved the problem.  (Options, General, Flight Model is the way to set the mode to Modern).  I didn't see this in the pdf that comes with the aircraft.  Perhaps this would be something to add in future releases of the manual anyway?  Thanks for an interesting aircraft.  I will have fun with it now.  Good job by Orbx on something other than scenery.  And at an affordable price.  Regards,

I only use "modern" for any aircraft and I think that's the common setting. I actually don't know the purpose of the other options.

Hello,

if you use a converted FSX model, then the "Legacy" model is far better than the modern one.

I expect that eventually the promised backwards compatibility might become a reality.

In the meantime it is at least one compromise.

I have been told that the line will be added to the manual.
