Belly landing
« on: February 21, 2024, 04:01:36 PM »
today on crag map V39 touched down 100mph and slid all the way down runway, never slowed down until hitting tree. Seems to only happen in Tempest

Maybe landing gear out and using brakes had stopped the kite?

Happened to be today in a 190f8, I believe at v72.  I think it has something to do with the slight change of elevation on the runway.  It's only on certain style vbases.

I didn't slide all the way into a tree, but considerably longer than a normal belly landing.
