Hey all!After reaching your altitude and when flying a long-haul (that could sometimes be real boring)and when you set your speed in Fs to 8 times (You do it because it

VNAV remains engaged. It's the throttles that disconnect causing you to stall. When you click on VNAV, you are reconnecting the throttles. This happens sometimes when you open a menu too. And why not fly a long haul flight in real time? It's fun!*:-* NOT! (Yet I still do it anyway.)Ryan GamurotLucky to live Hawai'ihttp://www.precisionmanuals.com/images/forum/supporter.jpg

last time I did a long haul, it was from JFK to LTBA... one of the most boring flights of all times, my gf thought I was INSANE! to just fly for 10-11 hours... pretty much plane flies itself so I just had it run in the bg and I would check back every few mins but still... man they are fun, but not really lol

Gents-If you run the sim at 8x, and you open one of the FS menus- the custom fuel system gets knocked 1 cycle off. Since the fuel system simulates the fuel manifold on the 747 (which is a VERY complex beast) this causes the engine consumption mathematical model to get ahead of the fuel manifold supply model for one frame- which causes a momentary flameout.You can avoid this problem entirely if you do one simple thing: Hit the PAUSE button before you open an FS menu.... then unpause when you come back.That will avoid the problem. Unfortunately- this is one of the down sides to having modeled the massive complexity of this airplane's fuel system... Manifold feed, fuel mixing from Tanks 1/4, etc etc... (And here you thought fuel was just a couple of tank definitions....hahaha)
