P3D Pro Plus v5/HF1 -- Wheel friction (Mu) seems wrong - too slippery in all weather conditions

Postby Skonk » Tue May 19, 2020 5:52 pm

Wheel friction modeling seems off quite a bit. Almost all aircraft will slip and slide around on the aprons and taxiways at "fast" taxi speeds (18 < x knots < higher).

Another super-noticeable example -- Load a F-22 in fair-weather scenario. Scenario loads. Raptor is at idle power with the parking brake ON. Check RPMs to confirm power. Observe the aircraft twists (precesses?) left. Disengage the parking brake, add enough power to start a takeoff roll but keep the speed to V_Ref-20k. Test NWS and notice how wheel traction in this version is less that V4.
