P40 undercarriage issues today :(

Post P40 Master »

after every landing the L/H wheel appears to be flat and the suspension shock is bouncing as if it was very un-even ground. Nothing showing in the hanger fault wise. I'm not saying i grease every landing but I've never slammed it on and i'm also gentle with the brakes. Any idea?

That's a scenery issue of some type as the airplane is not sitting at quite the same altitude as the ramp. Nothing to do with the airplane or the way you're flying it...you can see that the tailwheel tire is experiencing the same issue. I don't know how to fix it but have you tried flying out of a different airport to see if that makes any difference?

Cheers,

Seems to happen everywhere. I love flying the P40 and this has only started happening over the last few days. I was also getting crash to desktops with A2A aircraft but i realized the the only thing i had changed was i had turned the default engine damage on, turning it back off solved it.

Hello,

if you are using a saved flight its best to regular start a new one as saved flight often become corrupt over relatively short times. Also check your graphic settings as Rob mentioned it could be a case that the scenery ground isnt lined up to the mesh itself. In graphic options you can set the mesh complexity and this might change things a little for you.

And just to check, have you hit the repair all etc in the maintenance hangar?

thanks,

I did a series of landings at different airfields and it happened everywhere, i did a complete overhaul and it fixed the wheel issue. I do start from a saved flight nearly all the time. i re installed it and its fixed the issue. i had a similar issue with the bonanza too where it would load up and show no damage but in the hanger it would have a list as long as my arm and would not repair, re installation solved that too. maybe i need to always start from a fresh flight as you said.
