Do not work while in the air, but do on the ground............strange!
As someone else complained, plane explodes every landing...............same with me.
Comments? Thanks,
BadBud

Altus, Ok
Sounds like he's referring to the Community Mod A-4 Skyhawk, but used poor grammar and sentence structure.

Speed breaks are used in flight and are located along the sides of the fuselage. Spoilers are deployed from the upper surface of the flaps, upon landing and throttle to idle. However, they must be armed via the switch.

Try reading some guides and watching tutorials

I don't know what community mod that is - at first I thought it was an AAR and he was warning about spoilers biggrin

Sorry that I did not make myself clear about my problems here. I was referring to the DCS A-4E-C. I was having a bad night and thought that I was in the A-4 section of this forum. I could not find the breaks under "Speed Breaks" (which I found to be "Air Breaks" and now working), so at that time...... thought that the Spoilers were the speed breaks (wrong). Hope that I am making myself clear now. Thanks to STORM, got myself on the right track.
Exploding A-4 on landing is still a problem and am wondering if it is because I am flying this mod in DCS version 1-5-8? Anyone else having this problem?

1.5.8? Yes, probably not optimized at all for that.

Watch your sink rate on landing. No more than 700fps, but closer to the 500 range.

Speed brakes , just fyi.
No idea on the A4 problem.
However many civilian aircraft have more moving parts activated on ground than in air, especially when said moving parts share roll/speedbrake/spoiler function.

Go to 2.5.x and it will work as normal. 1.5 is not good


I5 8400 , 16gb , GTX 1070 oc , Win10 64bit . Virpil T-50 27" monitor with 2560x1440 rez ... DCS + Oculus CV1 + Samsung Odyssey . (odyssey is better for flight sims)
