Brake Temp message

Recommended Posts

Guest darrenthe747

Hello,I fly the pmdg 744 all the time and today i noticed something strange and new to me. I pushed back from the gate with the feature on the COM panel. after the push, I applied park brakes when told to do so by the pushback truck. I still needed to be pushed back a bit farther, so i simply used the Shift-P feature. I forgot to release my park brake though, and then the Brake Temp light came on. I taxied out to the runway making sure to stay off the brakes as much as possible. As soon as I tapped the brakes they wouldn't come off. The Brake message came on in the lower right corner of the screen. I have CH pedals and NEVER had this happen before. It seemed strange to me that the CH pedals would start acting up the same time I got a Brake Temp message on my 744 for the first time. any thoughts? Thanks,Darren

Darren,maybe its simulating the brakes siezing on? not sure.But its best not to attempt a takeoff with hot brakes as in the event of an RTO the brakes wont be able to absorb enough energy to stop the aircraft!cheersJon
