  • snapping noise after takeoff

    after i leave the ground in the takeoff mission, the first time i bank hard i hear this groaning metal noise and eventually a loud crunch or snap. After this it stops making noise and the plane seems to fly fine. is this normal, or did i forget to change some setting?

    1. Remember to raise your gear?

    2. Don't go too fast with external stores - i.e. when you are Cat III config. I usually try to keep it under 500 knots. Once you get rid of the bombs, switch to Cat I and things should handle better.

      thanks, but it primarily happens under high G, not at high speeds... ill try flying with nothing on the pylons and see what happens

        You've answered your own question. You cannot pull high g turns with bombs on your wings. a 2000lb bomb at 9 g's weighs 18,000lbs. You are ripping the bomb off your wings and probably a lot more too if the damage model was betetr in falcon.

        You also need to watch your speed too.
