Disable bungee system for crosswind landings/takeoffs?

Hi Scott and A2A crew, wonderful aircraft, best to date, you folks just keep improving.

Love the weather effects and dynamic lights are perfect!

Quick question, how does one disable the bungee system for crosswind landings and takeoffs? I see the documentation talks about the bungee system, but I don't see where I can actually disable the bungee system?

Cheers, Rob.

EDIT: Aircraft hasn't killed me yet, but I'm not a Doctor ;)

Hi Rob,

The bungee system is part of the actual aircraft and as such, is not something that can separately be disabled. You should be able to put in control inputs much the same as in other aircraft during crosswind operations. Let us know how you get on. :)

Oh ok, guess I didn't understand the manual ... page 22

" In the landing phase, the bungee
system can easily be manually overridden by the pilot when
making crosswind landings, which require cross-control
inputs to keep the nose of the airplane aligned with the
runway centreline whilst preventing the aeroplane from
drifting to the left or right."

How is it overridden ... just the act of providing rudder input will override it? I guess I assumed there was a lever or something.

Cheers, Rob.

Correct, it is overridden by applying enough pressure - in terms of your physical controls, this translates into making normal control inputs. 8)
