Hello inky00
I've dowloaded your version of the concord. Now the plane flies absolut correctly and also the start and the landing don't make any problem. Many thanks

Question Rudder throw?

I'm loving this airplane, but am surprised by the small amount of visible rudder throw. Not a problem with ailerons-only turns until low and slow on final approach for landing. Anyone suggest a wing-level runway alignment technique?

Super job, Inky00. Thank you.

Flip the switch to enable the high rates for landings.

I know what you mean ryleyb. sometimes I'll be banking through a turn and it will just stop and fall even if I just took off so it wouldn't be the fuel too low. It only happens when I go really fast though, so I just try to keep it below 275.

Thumbs up

Try making the strenght multiplier higher on the wings and tail as it may be that you are losing a component inflight which is causing your crashes.Personally i have never had a problem.

Opjose,
Sorry for being so dense, but I fail to see how rate-changes can assist in directional control. My issue is lining up the fuselage centerline with that on the runway, during approach. Without more rudder thrust, I don't have the steering capability unless I use ailerons, which of course then inputs a little roll ... OK until I am at ground level.

thoughts?
Thx,
Bob

Turning on high rates enables additional throw on the rudder.

However this is a plane that utilizes elevons for control and does not have a lot of rudder tail authority. The rudder is somewhat "hidden" from the airflow during slower speed decents due to that large wing.

Like the real thing you must line up much further out using the elevons.

Crosswind landings are highly problematic.

Like the SR71, the actual Concord has a limiter that restricts rudder movements at speed, lest it be ripped off the wings.

In the original post the two rudder planes where asymetric, one panel operating for rightward movement, one for left.

In the edited version, they move in unison for additional authority.

Lightbulb Longer approaches it is!

Thanks, Opjose. Interesting and informative answer. I guess I need to learn how to set up a longer approach than I'm currently accustomed to. Really appreciate your timely responses. Most helpful.
Cheers,
Bob
