FSX load panel state not good

Recommended Posts

I was hoping to report my first complete flight EDDK-KSFO. All was going so smoothly and well, once I have turned off overything else that I can think of - my task bar has only my network and sound volume icons on it now! But...I have tried many times to restart a long-haul from the Load menu under Flights, and each time I am initially getting a situation where the aircraft is below cruise altitude and commanded speed. The flight then gradually recovers both, but then goes on to climb way above the cruise level and speed gradually climbs to around .966M and I get the overspeed warning. The aircraft then gradually recovers its cruise level but speed will not drop. Eventually I get an aircraft overstressed message. Then the situation is reset and the aircraft continues its flight at commanded altitude but with the speed climbing again towards overspeed.Cheers, Richard

Richard,I can duplicate your problem with the speed.The source of the problem: PMDG 744X does not save the state of the Autopilot Throttle Mode. Check your PFD: not in SPD mode, not in THR mode, nothing. It's blanked after loading a saved flight, thus your spd is out of AP control.In order to get SPD mode back, you have to hit HOLD-SPD-VNAV.I reported the problem, and I can only hope that PMDG will fix it. I doubt it, because the bug is known since the FS9 release and it makes continuing a saved flight a pain.Cheers,Chris

Once you know the workaround, it's no problem continuing a saved flight, as everything else works fine. It's just slightly annoying.
