Dear IPACS team,
I love the Robin. I used to enjoy that plane in AFS 1 and could not wait flying her in AFS 2, since that's also the family of planes I fly the most IRL.
The flying model is perfectible regarding engine and Dutch roll stability, but for now I'm just happy having her in AFS 2.
Ground steering has however a problem, making it quite unsteerable.
It has been said previously that the front wheel has a kind of auto-locking system preventing deflection >10° at high speed (reduced weight on front wheel).q
In AeroflyFS steering behaves like the front wheel is always locked. Even with differential braking one hardly can taxi down to the runway and line up.
IRL it happens the front wheel keeps locked after a very soft touchdown and gentle slow down keeping the stick to the belly. One just has to move the stick forward and use the brakes to put more weight to the front wheel and unlock it. In AeroflyFS it doesn't work however.
I thought I was the only one having that bug, but saw some users video showing the same problem.
Thanks in advance.
I take the opportunity of this new thread to wish everyone a Happy New Year. May 2017 be the year of AeroflyFS, with an upcoming SDK enabling third parties to develop add-on sceneries with mesh, ground photo, autogen and procedural 3D. And third parties aircraft designer to start involving themselves in AeroflyFS 2 !
