  1. TOC after Stepclimb

    Hi Oliver, the T/C is calculated when you press the EXEC button - and then it remains static, even if the airplane climbs much better (or worse) than expected. It is rare to reach the top of climb at exactly the precalculated point in the real airplane. Whenever you do a recalculation (like flying direct to a waypoint, entering a new climb speed, etc.) that requires you to hit the EXEC button, the T/C will be recalculated. In the real plane the T/C symbol will also disappear as you fly past it, this does not happen (yet) on our model. Cheers Jan
  2. Graphical CDU issue

    Thanks for the info - the PROGRESS page is pretty much a work in progress and will be improved and finalized in a future FMS overhaul. Cheers, Jan
  3. "LVL CHG" button abnormal descend

    Hi and thanks for the video - I think the problem is the turbulence - the PID algorithm may be fooled by the up and down of the airspeed. We did some adjusting for a similiar problem during MACH climb... but will look at this again. In the meantime I would suggest to use FL CHG with MCP SPD instead of MACH - it might track a bit better. Cheers and thanks for your help, Jan
  4. "LVL CHG" button abnormal descend

    Ok, try to capture a video if it, maybe - or a series of screenshots, so we can see whats going on... Cheers, Jan
  5. How to setup mimimum altitude

    Hi David, that is correct. You "could" use the DH window (as many people do it) and set it to "200", for example. This would not be a legally correct procedure, however, as the call "minimums" would sound wheneve the radar altimeter measures "200 feet" - which may not be when the plane is actually 200 feet above the runway threshhold. Imagine there is a steept drop-off or a hill right in front of the runway. For the CATII approaches with it´s 100 feet minimum the terrain in front of the runway is carefully charted and the RA value in the charts is adjusted accordingly (it may be displayed as RA 95, for example). For the CATIIIa the radar alt is always 50 feet, as the plane will be above the runway at that point (and the runway is flat). Jan
  6. "LVL CHG" button abnormal descend

    There could be a variety of contributing factors, especially descending in MACH speed after passing the normal MACH/SPD switchover altitude. MACH will stay constant, but IAS will rise rapidly while descending (into warmer air)... Jan
  7. How to setup mimimum altitude

    mfor is right. If you shoot a non-precision or CAT I ILS approach, the callout "minimums" will (should) come from the pilot not flying/pilot monitoring. If you shoot a low-visibility precision approach CAT II/IIIa the minimum will come from the set DH. Jan
  8. How to setup mimimum altitude

    You should use the orange bug on the altimeter to set a mimimum descent altitude, like 2540ft (non-precisicion and CAT I ILS approaches). You would set the bug to 540 feet and just memorize the "2". The DH window is only used to set up a Descision Height, which is a height above terrain, for CATII and CATIIIa approaches. These descision heights are typically ca. 100 feet for CATII and exactly 50 feet for CATIIIa approaches. Cheers, Jan
  9. FMC - - How to start over?

    If you have a gizmo softcrash, you must reboot the scripts or reload the aircraft. If you can consistently softcrash gizmo in 1.1 we would love to see how you do it so we can fix that problem! Cheers, Jan
  10. Yeah, I had hoped that this would be fixed with another fix I made, but it is still there...I added it to the bug-tracker. For now you can circumvent this by pulling out the "manual N1" knobs and setting them to the required N1. Cheers, Jan

Maybe a re-installation would help, making sure to install everything into the intended folders.

  12. And this problem will be reverted for the next patch, too.

    XP10 as well, I believe. Jan
