Yes turning off the momentum effect does mask the effect. But you can still hear it’s in the outside view. There’s definitely something wrong with the simulation there.

I really hope someone from A2A will look at this...
A weird glitch for sure...doubly confusing because I went and flew mine last evening just to confirm and it does not exhibit any type of odd behavior at all. It's a relatively new machine and install of FSX:SE with the latest update applied to the Spitfire and I ran it through a complete stall/slow flight series with the gear down and saw no issues, inside or out... :?

There are a bunch of folks smarter than I around here...hopefully someone can sort it out.

Hi guys,

Looks like this one runs a little deeper than originally suspected. We'll investigate the issue further once the Flight Sim 2019 visit is out of the way. In the meantime, apologies for the inconvenience. I suspect it has something to do with the 'fundamental interconnectedness of all things' as Dirk Gently might put it. :)

Cheers,

Thanks Nick.

I think another clue I can give is that I‘m pretty sure this happened after the Bonanza or one of its updates. Maybe that’s also the reason some users see it and some don’t.

Happy flying

Hi guys,

We've just released a small update for the Spit to hopefully resolve this one. Apologies for the inconvenience in the meantime.

Hi Nick,

Will there also be an update for the FSX version?

Hi Sebastian,

Sorry - having just reread some of the posts above, I see the issue affects FSX users too. We'll reissue the FSX update to take care of it there as well. Hopefully this shouldn't take too long.

Thanks,
Nick

Nick: Thank you for that fix! I tried it and it works!

One note: Just before updating my Spitfire, I scrolled down the new features in this update, and I was where the yaw stability was reduced, based on Boultby Academy experience. "WHAT? Again?," I thought. The test flight went well, and I was greatly relieved to go back and check the update list again, and find that yaw stability statement was from a previous update, and that had not been changed. Oh, thank you for that!

By the way, you should check out Robin Takolanders latest YouTube video on the A2A Spitfire https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvB_jXygs1U&t=8s.

Kinda bummer that the problem still persists as there's been no update for FSX version. Or am I missing something? At least the last combined update for Accusim Core is last years Feb, almost a year old. That's the one pinned and that one is the one I'm running and the one that likely caused the bug in the first place.

Is there some update for this particular glitch somewhere, maybe in some non-pinned thread?

No, there hasn't been another update since then or a repair for this in FSX. I did have this happening too but when I read this post I realized I don't have the problem on my new computer with fresh install of FSX and the aircraft. I've only flown the Mustang so far so it's possible that it will still happen for me in the P-40 or Spit.

I can confirm the problem also doesn't happen with the Spitfire on my new computer, for what it's worth.
