martinlest Posted November 14, 2020 Report Share Posted November 14, 2020 (edited) Nice flight earlier... until I came to land: I could not turn off the auto-throttle, (so of course the a/c didn't slow down). Tried (firstly), near to flare, using the joystick button assigned to 'Disengage AT', my usual method, but the AT switch remained where it was. I pulled down the AT switch in the cockpit (and/or used the disconnect on the throttle) - the AT switch moved down.. but still the a/c wouldn't decelerate (autobrakes were armed). Moved the throttles from idle up to full and back to idle... no help. Searched all the IXEG pdf files, online... found nothing that helped. This has happened a couple of times over the past few days (I have been flying the 733 for most of my flights). Had something gone wrong with the a/c and/or XP at that time, or am I actually doing something wrong? Is the 'Disconnect AT' function dependent upon other variables, or should it disconnect no matter what (I assume)? I have tried setting a different switch for the command, but it still doesn't do anything. It used to work OK... Thank you. I don't know why all of a sudden I am having these problems with the 733... all becomes very frustrating after a while (and am then tempted to give up and go and watch TV instead), whatever the cause (even if it's me! Especially if it is me, in fact!). Edited November 15, 2020 by martinlest Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
