FL550 and Climbing

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering...why I am climbing past 55,000 feet.  Has there been a change to the flight model?

 

Used to max-out at about 25,000.  Never thought I'd see the curvature of the earth from behind a propeller!  lol

New model is very smooth otherwise.  Good job!!

Thanks!

We didn't make any significant changes in that regard, perhaps the engine is being over torqued or the plane is not loaded with any payload?

Just did some more testing after reinstalling the aircraft.  Still exceeding service ceiling.  Config: MTOW and within max torque limits.

 

Has it always been like this?  Now I'm wondering if it was maxing-out at 25,000 previously or it was just my imagination lol

 

Thanks!

The plane has always been physically capable of going much higher than its service ceiling - but since it isn't pressurized, you better be wearing a pressure suit ;)
