PA A380 Stalls at 10,000ft in level flight -Very Sluggish Performance - More than reported in other threads

Post by mdscan » 30 Mar 2017, 19:36

Hi All,

Have scoured both the PA forum & the rest of the internet, to no avail. I have, of course, read and re-read the "how to fly the A380" thread on this forum, and still having this problem:

I've installed the PA A380 model into FSX, downloaded directly from the Project Airbus website. When flying the A380, I just can't get enough thrust out of it, even compared to what other individuals have reported. At ~12,000ft, with full (>100%N1) throttle, I struggle to maintain ~160KIAS (yes, one hundred and sixty, mach .5-.6 or so) in level flight. If I try and climb at anything faster than 3-400fpm, the aircraft stalls. This happens even with a ~10% fuel load and all payload stations set to zero. Have double-checked the [weight_and_balance] section, nothing looks amiss.

Anyone have any idea what might be happening here? Some obvious thing I've overlooked? I understand that the A380 is a very slightly underpowered aircraft overall even in the real world, but this is well beyond that.

Thank you all for your help in advance. Also, as an aside, although I can't get it to fly right (yet!), the PA A380 is a gorgeous model! When I pulled up an exterior view to double check that the slats/ flaps weren't causing this (they weren't, unfortunately), I was struck by how detailed and overall gorgeous this model is. So kudos to the Project Airbus team!
