PMDG 747X Airspeed Indicator Tape not working

Recommended Posts

Hi,I've got a strange problem with the Airspeed Indicator Tape (AIT) not working. I've had the 747X for about 6 months and everything has gone fine. Steep learning curve but enjoyable.A couple of nights ago I found tht when taking off the AIT didn't move from the standard 30 when I accelerated down the runway. Although I had highlighted the V speeds and they showed in the AIT the co-pilot didn't call out V1 and VR as he normally would. In contrast the Altitude Indicator Tape worked fine upon takeoff. However when I went to turn on the automatic pilot the plane spun out of control.Anyone have any ideas? I'm sure it's not something simple I've forgotten to do.Thanks for your help,Peter.

The IAS tape problem was noted early in the release of the 747X, and a fix was issued in an update about two weeks later. The current version is 747-400X V2.1, check your version... it's odd that this problem didn't occur for six months, but then I don't remember the issue behind this problem.Are you using Vista?
