Couldn't stop rolling backwards after pushback

Recommended Posts

Guest mjay

Trying first flight. After pushback / engine start I found the plane moving backwards and nothing I could do seemed to stop it. (parking brake), applying thrust (no effect whatsoever, even though I was applying 100% thrust). I moved backwards through buildings and onto the runway until I got fed up and stopped the program. I had set the pushback correctly - as per the instructions in Jared Smiths tutorial.Does anyone have any ideas? ThanksM

Have not tried the mentioned push program myself, but I believe i is using the FS "slew" mode. If so you have to stop the push with a key combination. Otherwise you will remain forever in "slew" mode which cannot be interrupted by brakes or thrust. Those only work in "normal" mode.Best,BjornBjorn Harlin

Bjorn:The slew is one possible cause (look to see if SLEW is annunciated and cancel with Y). More likely there is a conflict between the "normal" FS pushback command and the PMDG ones. I have had this happen. Try pushing the P key or check your assignments and see what FS is using for pushback and press that. Let us know how that works. Thanks!Best-Carl F.
