MD-11 "Stabilizer Motion"

Quick question, with the autopilot engaged, when it trims the tail plane why are the pilots aurally alerted? I believe the same happens with the ATR series of aircraft. And why don't Airbus/Boeing aircraft have this warning?Thanks,Paul

Paul,On the MD-11 (I think also on the ATR) there is also an aural alert when trimming manually. The warning sounds after you - or the autopilot, or LSAS - trims more than 2

Yeah runaway/uncommanded trim would be my guess too - you have to react very quickly if that happens or you're gonna be in a ton of trouble.

There I've heard different things from Robert ;)The PMDG way is, if it can be done correctly within the limits of MSFS it will be done. After all an A320 is announced, that one has an even more complex flight control system.Regards,Markus
