I experienced that thing often. It's either:
1. The plane is a rocket which designed to head upwards when spawned
2. The starting position is a silo
3. The collision file doesnt match with dat landing gear position

Solution: spawn at north/south

im running a 2005 version
I noted that in another thread. A lot of addons will not work with the 2005 version. Most addons will be fine with the 2009 version, but even that can be hit or miss.

I highly recommend that you move up at least to the 2009 version, if not newer.

9/10 times if it crashes on spawn or the game breaks, it's a .DAT issue. I'd look there first.

Also make sure the collision file in the aircraft LST definition is not a DNM file - that crashes old versions of YS sometimes.

Yes there's a dat variable tightly related to collision file, thats landing gear pos. Most of my experience is the collision file mixed up between each other so when it spawned on ground the landing gear is shorter than the collision and the game counted that as a crash.

And of course its a .DAT issue cuz if u make the landing gear pos a lil longer down, or at least can give it enough clearance it wouldn't be crashed...

I have trouble believing someone would make an addon and release it when it doesn't work in YSF. I'm still betting on incompatibility.

But to be fair, I still don't know what specific addons are involved. We need to know the map's name, the aircraft's name, and from where they were downloaded.

2012 is not the latest version, 2017 test version is.

2012 is considered the most stable and best version of YSFlight.
