In another thread, fortunjj mentioned the behavior of the Spitfire after you nose over on the runway that I feel should be addressed with an update. The tipping over animation is seriously bugged, at least for me. It isn’t endless, but the animation repeats for a very long time. I think fortunjj mentioned he slews out of the stuck animation. I just to wait until it ends, maybe go get a cup of tea in the interum. I tested the P-51 this afternoon and it’s nose over routine on takeoff (say you jam the brakes in) is over quickly, a few sparks, a couple of hops into the air and then you’re left with your ruined, smoking heap ready to head to the hanger.

Is there any way, or is anything in the works to fix the Spitfire so it bounces just once or twice before coming to a stop after you’ve tipped onto the prop? :(

I'll nose the Spitfire over a bunch of times and see what is going on, and fix any strangeness I find. Thanks for the heads up.

Scott.

Thank you, Scott. Hopefully you see what I’m talking about and it isn’t just something to do with my system or hardware.

Yes! It would be a huge step forward to have control over the state of the plane when the plane noses over without having to use slew mode.

One other thing to consider with this... it was mentioned that the throttle should be set low when exiting the sim in preparation for the next start so that the plane doesn't nose over in the first place. Well, in my last flight with the Spit, the sim crashed mid-flight (as happens sometimes - who knows what was at fault). Anyway, now things are in a bad way for the next start and there is little I can do about it. I *might* be able to catch the throttle before it noses over or I might not - depending, I guess, on the state of the brakes. Hopefully you can see my point here as I mentioned in my last post... relying on the ending state of the last flight simply doesn't work for a plane that is sensitive to initial conditions. It needs to be set to a stable state when it is spawned in a running state. Of all the A2A planes I own - P51, P40, T6 (just purchased this evening - fantastic plane and I even managed a nice 3 point landing first shot!) and the Spit, the Spitfire is the only one with these initialization problems. The Spitfire is my favorite of the lot and I really would like to fly it more but I just can't be sure of the headache I'm in for on the ground.
