Hey, im guessing many of you might already know this problem, wile flying and sudden wind changes from tail to head wind start making you stall?

well then just go to settings, weather, and check the first box on top, it says something about downloading High altitude winds with the 15 minutes update im sorry that i cant perfectly translate my FS is in german.

So do that and your problems should be resolved, and it worked with me Big grin

It helps, but FS weather is missing some weather stations over certain regions of the world. So although you have it set to update weather every 15 mins. the omitted stations will have default weather which will cause the sudden changes in wind speed and direction which are probably causing the stall.

Hope this helps a bit!

Doesn't this change all winds that aren't on the surface to calm? Hardly realistic IMO.

No, if you set winds update every 15 minutes, the high winds download is just an extra option you should turn on, so also the winds over 10000 feet get updated and not just be the increasing and changin winds from the airport you took of from.

Meaning that under 10000 feet you have the realistic winds and over 10000 feet.

Just try it.

Get Peter Dowson's FSUIPC, it with smooth out FS' rapid wind aloft changes, as well as many more things. You'll need to register and pay a small fee, but if you do sim a lot you'll find the many features useful. Check it out at:
