A330/340 Can't fly won't fly

Recommended Posts

HiI've been flying the A320 Pro series with great success and pleasure in FS2002 for about a year now so I was looking forward to the heavies but - I just cannot get these to fly correctly. When I take off manually but using FLEX and have cleaned up and selected autopilot the annunciator on the PDF flashes between A FLOOR and TOGA. When LVR CLB shows I am unable to return the throttle to CL detent. After fighting the controls for a while by mainly switching A/THR on and off things stabilise for a while until an amber TOGA starts to flash - more pressing A/THR on and off. The speed tape is all over the place and MORE DRAG is indicated even when the speed indicated is too low.After nursing things along by adjusting speed manually I finally arrive at the landing, Dual Autoland, and at RETARD the A/C just floats down the runway, TOGA LK lights up and away we go. At this point the Performance Page is at GO AROUND and we have another aborted flight, perhaps I could recover but, by then, I thoroughly pee'd off.I have noticed that on the Aircraft Selection Page the description reads 'FDE Version FS9-1.2', now I'm sure I've read a number of times that the FDE's are different animals so am I using the one designed for FS9 in FS2002? I can assure you that I did install the FS2002 version.I would be really grateful if anyone can throw some light on my dilemma!Tony

Hi Can't anyone help me be able to fly these lovely A/C? I'm pretty sure I'm doing everything by the book and have even tried Bob's original FDE without success but have run out of ideas now.Please give me some pointers. I posted across at the Just Flight forum a couple of days ago but it's not appeared there yet!
