Hello,

for those of you not following the bug tracker:
I recently had a problem with a loss of control in CLB and was now able to reproduce it on a small flight from EDDL to EDDM.
The plane just pitches up and rolls over resulting in a stall and a huge loss of altitude. This only happens in approximately FL170 or higher (210 this time).
I already reported everything in the bug tracker but would like to share the video with all of you guys, maybe someone has the right idea what the problem could be.

Hardware is mostly Skalarki and Logitech Sidesticks.

Regards,
Martin

Hi,

As I also replied on the bug tracker (for those who don't follow it), this is most probably caused by the the outside air temperature which is here much too high according to the ISA temperature profile.
This causes the IAS calculation to fail unexpectedly. This bug will be corrected in next release, though if this happens to you, check that you have a "normal" SAT (use the 15C - 2/1000ft formula).
