I've recently been flying a few B757-200s created by Project Opensky, and all of them move to the left slightly when taking off/flying. Now, there is no wind, both engines are at the same level, and loads/fuel are even, so what could it be? Also noticed a few other odd things about their 757, such as not lifting off on take-ff even though it's going fast enough and the flaps are in the right position, or the nosewheel not going up with the main gear! Cheers, Matt

I have a joystick, but I always use my keyboard. :)

My Posky 757 seems to take off too quickly. At about 100kts the aircraft rotates. The aircraft do swing about but you need to counter act this using rudder.

How is the trim setting?

I've actually messed around with the trip setting, as at first it didn't look like it was in the correct position, but I moved it to where I thought it should be, and it still moved to the left just as much. Thanks for all your help anyway. :)

All I can think is that maybe youre hitting some sort of rudder control button? Also your other concerns, I don't think the 757s main and nose gears retract at exactly the same time. Also, depending upon your weight I think you could get a 757 ff at 100 knots! Ben

Hi Ben, Well, it still turns even when I've pressed '5' to stop all turning, also, the nosewheel definatly doesn't go up, as I've flown around for 5 or so minutes with just the nosegear down. :(
