Hello, not sure if this is Flight Dynamics or FS settings but...

On my Miller HM-4 (twin pusher)

The elevator work fine untill i get above 160mph, then it doesn't move! It doesn't change the pitch of the
plane or move in the visual model.

This happens on level flight, dives anything get the speed above 160mph   (top speed is close to 220 cruise of 180mph)

Any ideas?

Hi
Table 517 518 1nd 519 all control deflection at a dynamic pressure
have a look here Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register
at Jerry Beckworth's graph he posted which converts dynamic pressure at sea level into speed
so you can tweak the tables to suit

Is there a more in depth explanation of this?

Im running into the same problem,  past 640kts, the elevator just stops working..  Ive messed around with the  Qtables  and no matter what i change, i get zero difference.
