MD 11 Braking Problem..Help.

Recommended Posts

I have been flying the PW version of the Md since I purchased it a month ago. The past few days i flew the GE version ( lufthansa cargo ). I have a problem with the GE model.I noticed as I taxied out ( aircraft within normal limits) that the brkes have little effect. I can use full brakes and if I have idle thrust the aircraft will not come to a stop. Furthermore after I landed Using full brakes I was not able to stop before the end of the runway and effectivley ran off the runway. This NEVER happens with the PW model. Also..the brakes tempatures kept climbing to 419 degrees, before they cooled. whats strange about this was I was not using the brakes at this point as the rapidly heated. I HAVE MADE SURE MY BRAKES ARE CORRECTLY CALIBRATED. Any suggestions.Capn' OZ

[font size=2I also seem to be experiencing few problems withthe braking system.First, I had the same problem than above twice : running out of runway and not being able to stop.Reverse was set and so were the autobrakes (on med) but they didn't turn on upon touchdown and manual braking was ineffective or at least not working correctly (braking would stop although I was holding down the trigger).Second, the readings on the config panel for the brakes temperature seem to be incoherent. When on the runway with parking brake set, advancing the throttles to full power doesn't have any effect on the temperature values and they remain around 30~40
