Make sure the following switches (attached image) are ON and the fault lights extinguished. They are on the AFT OH Panel. This should give you steering control etc. for taxiing.

Same here mostly. Yoke animation does not work, same with flaps and plane keeps banking heavily to left and only much right yoke (which cant be seen on VC like said) helps to counter it...

I tried to redownload and reinstall, didn't help. Will try again later when slept over night.


I think I found at least part of the reason for this. I just started a flight, and when I looked at the rudder AND aileron trim were all set the maximum left (see attached image)! I guess I'm still not using the ECL correctly yet because I'm sure it tells me to check the aircraft trim (which I must assume meas elevator, rudder and aileron trim). To set it back to the center, just press the MANUAL TRIM CANCEL button.

1) Aircraft cannot taxi. There's no control over steering yet.

2) When airborne after slewing it into a runway, the aircraft banks heavily to the left.

3) Rudder inputs don't work and make the rudder shake

4) Elevator doesn't seem to be working yet. Had to trim a LOT to get the T7 airborne.


This was solved by Mark's post above. These switches are so far in the back that i didn't even notice them  Grin Grin

Okay, moving forward, there are no issues at all with the points i described, my bad.

No! It's not "your bad" Nuno. I only noticed them just before posting, so it took me a while to see them too. I have NOT checked the ECL to see if we are listed in the check list, although common sense tells me we should always check them regardless. So to me, it was one of those silly "DOH!" moments that I suffer from too often. Wink

Ok thanks  Wink

Right now the only problems i have are the rocking from one side to another (A/C tries to correct excessive bank to the left) and the landing gear that doesn't want to retract. I have set the trims correctly now thanks to your post, but this still happens Sad

Not sure what's going on, the Aircraft wont accept any trim but a full down. Also it's banking to the left once airborne when all aileron trim is as should be. Landing gear will not go up, either manually selecting it up with the Gear stick, Altn Gear or on my joystick, nothing!

This happened to me on my last flight. It does not do it all the time. Just every now and then. I'm trying to pinpoint the cause, but no luck yet.

The other strange thing with my last flight, was that I actually got the gear up. It ignored the 250 knot speed restriction, I was also using LNAV and VNAV and it pitched right up and went into a climb of 6000+ fpm! Eventually, it stalled, I caught it, stabilized it, turned LNAV and VNAV back on it did it all again.

Usually the gear wont retract, it can barely climb (100 or 200 fpm) and it won't go faster than about 190 knots. It flies around in circles at about 2000/3000 feet AGL and looks like a bird that doesn't know how to fly. Grin
