Power management during carrier practice since update

Recommended Posts

Flying the bug for the first time today after doing the update.

 

While doing Case I and Case III practice, I immediately noticed the need for much more power with gear/flaps in landing configuration. I am having to keep the power at or very near max mil to maintain AOA and proper descent rates.

 

During a bolter or wave off I am having to use burner to get back into the correct alt and airspeed.

 

Am I nuts or anyone else notice this? Not a complaint, just wondering if it's something on my end.

What's your total weight? So far I have not had that issue.

I've tried weights from 39.5k from the Carrier Cold and Dark mission down to 33k from some other custom Case I missions.

 

There is no doubt I'm having to stay right at or just below Max MIL and any slight power reduction causes a large sink rate increase.

I believe max landing weight for the Hornet is 34,000lbs. It looks like you are over or at the upper limits of max landing weight. Try landing lighter with less fuel and you will find better stability and throttle control.

Totally agree with your logic.

 

The issue that caused the original concern, however, is these are the same missions/weights I've been using since the Hornet was released. Haven't had this issue until after yesterday's update.

What does unrestricted mean?

It's OK to land normal "unrestricted" on the carrier.

You can land on the carrier 'normally'. Between 33 and 34,000lbs, there are certain restrictions in place as follows:

 

 

Arrestments above 33,000 pounds are subject to the following restrictions:

(1) Glideslope - 3.5° Maximum (2) Recovery head wind (RHW) -

(a) 40 knots minimum - Half flaps allowed

(b) Less than 40 knots - Full flaps only

(3) Lateral weight asymmetry - 14,500 foot-pound maximum (external pylon stores, AIM-9 wing tips,

and wing fuel)

(4) No MOVLAS recovery

Be on top the jet :)

 

Practice at a safe alt (ex 5000ft) . Go dirty and trim for level flight on speed.

 

Now do some power changes to see how the jet is reacting.

 

I find that if I is late on my throttle, I might overcorrect both on plus and minus and flight path is now a nice yo yo :)

 

To monitor your progress get the program Tacview http://www.tacview.net/

Here you can monitor all and you will soon see where you need to focus :)

Didn't they tweaked something about the landing gear drag? I also noticed that I loss more speed on landings than before.

It was supposed to be a drag reduction to the gear that was getting updated. Wouldn’t cause an increase in power for landing.

 

I asked about it on Wednesday, and IvanK responded that the drag reduction did not make it into this update.
