Posky 742 Problem

Mon May 28, 2007 9:28 pm

I have found that whilst running any POSKY 742 on FS9, when on the ground, the aircraft frequently "falls" into the ground (the nosewheel collapses) and the aircraft crashes. Is this a known problem?!

Interesting, can't say that this has ever happened to me at all. The only thing I can think off, is turning off some of the crash and realism settings in your setup menu. That's probably not the cure, but since I've never experienced that problem myself, it's all I could think off.

Good thought but even if u do that, after the nosewheel collapses, its almost like it vanishes as the aircraft continues going into the ground... It's a rather annoying problem!

I've seen that happen on one of those Spice1 videos, but since it's never happened to me, I can't think of any other remedies. Sorry.

I've never seen this happen with the Posky 742 specifically, but I have had a problem when taxiing out of the cargo ramp at NRT with the default 744. Anyone else?

Why don't you actually ask on the POSKY forum...? It's there for a reason.

Its caused by the "pothole" problem I believe. There are a number of potholes (which are not visible) at numerous airports across the FS World. These can be in taxiways or the runways themselves, most aircraft will pass over them without any major problems (unless you are trying to stop a 767 on a runway littered with them - you don't really get much brake action), however, the POSKY 747s in general seem at a higher risk of NG collapse.

The best cures would be to turn crashes off (which normally works but doesn't appear to for you) or to try getting a new AFCAD for your airport where this keeps happening.

Oh and guys, watch out for 5L at AKL, I barley managed to stop my 767 from an overrun its just potholes everywhere.

Haha thats funny, i flew in there onFS tonight, and i was told to go 5L but went 5R instead (req it) the 5R one is the tarmac one and its so god damned bumpy! Im surprised my suspension didnt give up! 5L i then took off again from about an hour ago and its pretty smooth, must be just you.
Luton (EGGW)) has quite a few along the taxiways and can be a pain in the ass.

Use 05R/23L instead. RW05L/23R at AKL is used as a taxiway and for emergency/special ops only. Regular traffic should use 05R/23L for T/Os and landings.
