Please help! Space planes cant take off

Question

I am having such a hard time with the space planes. I cant even take off the runway!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The crappy landing gear they give is horrible. Every time go to take off my plane just wobbles off the runway or it goes from left to right to a point where it just flips over. Why is this happening? I'm suck and cant progress any further in the game Because all my contracts require me to fly places. Please help!!!

It is very had to figure the exact cause of your problem without pictures of your plane (take screenshots using F1 and upload them to any image host, eg Imgur).

Besides the usual design considerations (put your back landing gears close to your centre of mass for them to act as a fulcrum, have your pitch controls far away from the centre of mass...) there are some issues with the landing gears that will cause your plane to crash no matter what you do.
For these, a hotfix should come out soonish, so you can work on some rockets in the meantime (or find a way to use gears that isn't bugged).

Also, if you are in early career, chances are your runway is still low tier (ie bumpy). Recent issues with this have shown that tail-dragger designs are more stable for take of and landing (two wheels in the front, one at the back, like most small planes IRL).

if you cant figure out then you dont play the game,the landing gears/struts are curently broken and possibly the  aerodynamics too.

Wait for new patch Sobecho or "playing" the new landing gear settings or try this cfg "hack".:

To my experience (because I do play the game) not all gears are broken, I've been using them with no major issue, and aerodynamics behave fine (as fine as KSP's model can be). There could a thousand other reasons why his plane didn't take off.

 Anarkhon,

 Unfortunately, my fix doesn't seem to do much for the lateral instability problem. It helps a little for some, and does absolutely nothing for others. It seems to have more to do with lateral grip and flimsy attachment points than suspension and clipping.

Best,

I found my SSTO yawing from left to right on runway to. This is overcome with friction control on the wheels I made a little vid about it

 

 

But since 1.1.1 though I found new issues which im posting seperately. If your in 1.1.0 though this might work for you
