On take off all aircraft veer to the left and stall in flight

All aircraft regardless of configuration or power settings will veer to the left on takeoff roll, and then pitch up to a stall and crash regardless of control inputs. Turinging on the auto pilot will correct the abnormal flight but upon disengaging it occurs again. I have nulled out the trim, varied flap settings and power settings etc but no soultion. I have calibrated the joy stick controls many times and replaced the joy stick all to no avail. Any body have a solution?

Hello, I am a private pilot. Your veering to the left MAY be caused by prop wash hitting left side of fin. This is known as P-Factor, and can be couteracted by right rudder. The direction of veer depends on rotation direction fo prop.

It's difficult to determine witch trim buttons effect the props. The only way to do this is durring flight. At low power, since you are working with 4 axis, each set of 2 buttons will effect the rotational speed of 1 motor. Typicaly in this set up, the left stick will control power and yaw(up and rotation left and right), while the right stick controls direction and pitch.(forward/reverse and bank left or right) Here is what I think you need. The left side bottom butons, control horizontal control. If you take off and notice the helo going to the left(banking, not turning) click the right button to attain horizontal stability. If you notice it is going slightly forward click the bottom button on the right side of the left stick. The same can be said with the axis control on the right stick. I hope to see this aircraft on youtube, as there is a shortage of these flying stabile anywere. good luck.

  • Straight and Level Cruise:
Start by setting the RPM to a cruise setting of 2200 RPM, using the throttle. This should give us a cruise speed of about 108 Knots.
Use the yoke to maintain level flight by keeping the small aircraft symbol level and exactly on the "Artificial Horizon" line of the six pack . Keep scanning the rest of the six pack to help maintain level flight. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning, climbing or descending or if the airspeed or altitude starts to change. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and wait to see the response.

  • Climbing Phase:
We will climb by increasing the throttle to full throttle. Now you can pull back on the yoke to raise the aircraft nose to about ten degrees above the horizon. Now set your climb speed (using the yoke), by changing this 10 degree climb, until you have an airspeed of about 80 knots. meanwhile continuing to scan the six pack at all times and make sure that nothing is changing that you don't want to change. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning. or if the airspeed starts to change.
This Aircraft will stall (in a turn) at approximately 53 knots (no flaps) so keep your turns shallow and avoid any speed below 75 knots to allow yourself a margin of safety. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and stay well out of any limit zones that are indicated on the instruments.

  • Descent Phase:
A descent to a lower altitude is done by reducing the throttle to an engine speed of about 1500 RPM while setting the air/fuel mixture at full rich (red knob fully inward). If you intend to be descending a long time at low engine power, then you should use carburetor heat to prevent icing. At reduced RPM, the engine will not be producing as much heat so we may have to put on the carburetor heat, or you can occasionally increase the engine speed for a minute to gain some heat and clear the engine.

First we'll cover panel instruments and how they're used.

Familiarize yourself with the six pack.The six instruments in the center of the instrument panel used mostly for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) and are always in the following order:

  • Top left: The "Airspeed Indicator" shows aircraft airspeed, in knots. (nautical miles) per hour. It also displays the airspeed limitations in white, green, yellow, and red arcs.

  • Top center: The "Artificial Horizon" Has a small aircraft symbol that depicts the aircraft required attitude,for level flight, and shows whether the aircraft is climbing or descending, as well as the angle of bank.

  • Top right: The "Altimeter" a three hand clock type instrument that shows altitude of the aircraft in feet MSL, (feet above mean sea level).

  • Lower left: The "Turn and Bank Indicator" is a dual instrument which tells your angle of bank and whether you are in a coordinated turn. Sometimes called the "Needle Ball". For straight and level flight, keep the wings level and the ball centered.

  • Lower center:The "Heading Indicator". A stable gyro instrument that shows the aircraft's current compass heading. Use the Control Wheel to keep the aircraft on the desired heading.

  • Lower right: The "Vertical Speed Indicator" which tells how fast you are losing or gaining altitude, in feet per minute. Keep this instrument at zero to maintain level flight.

What does flight mode do?


Newer mobile phones have multiple profile settings one of which is flight mode. It is a mode in which mobile phone can be left on while inside a flying aircraft.

Customers have been prevented from using mobile phones in-flight because of the possible impact on aircraft avionics and the potential for interference with ground cell networks.

You cannot make phone calls or send SMS while in flight mode.

It is useful when you want to listen to music or play games while in an airplane.
