Stuck landing gear has no effect on aircraft handling


Recommended Posts

So I bork bork borked up a take-off and came down pretty hard just after starting the landing gear retraction. Got back in the air and everything was fine (no landing gear light on the panel, no aerodynamic effects) so I figured it hadn't caused any problems and the gear are just really robust.


Later I happened to check the external view and saw my left main gear was still extended. Deployed and retracted the gear again and everything worked fine - so it was only the graphical model which considered it extended, I guess.


Didn't try landing on the single gear to see if the sim actually recognised it as down. But my landing was normal with no ill-effects.


Attached is a cockpit view showing stick position (normal) and lack of indicator lights, and an external view of the same scene.
