IXEG 737 autobrakes

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, since the update to 1.21 I'm having troubles with the autobrake: it disarms everytime I use the rudder (in my case through a Thrustmaster joystick).


This behavior happens both during the take-off (RTO position) and landing roll (any autobrake position).


Any idea on how to fix it?


Best regards,

It is most likely due to inadvertent pressing of the rudder pedals (toe-braking). This is default X-Plane autobrake behaviour, and we have not changed that.

The real 737 will also disarm the autobrake, but only if you apply a certain brake pressure over a certain amount of time. X-Plane does not mimick that.

Try this: Display the rudder application (using data out option) onto the screen. Your values for left and right brake should be 0.0 if you don´t touch your pedals. If they are not, chances are that your rudder pedals are not calibrated right. Next try to land with autobrake, but keep your feet of the rudder (to avoid any accidental brake application). Does the autobrake still disarm?

The last problem could be that you are seeing unwanted "brake-helping-in-turn" application by X-Plane. We have seen some reports of that - you can fix this by changing a value in planemaker, read this post to find out how:

Hope this helps, Jan

Jan, your support is always outstanding!

I went into plane maker as you said and the autobrake works again!

I really appreciated your help...
