Hi Steve, my experience, with two little hops (EGLL-EHAM and EGLL-LFPG).Taxi, take-off and climb , OK, well climb is very powerful, but it seems to be a feature of this ac.VNAV descent, as bad as it was, beginnig desceding at almost -4000 ft, pitch down ay 5 degrees end the it descents at -2100-2200 ft (-2,5

Miquel,It is recommended that with VNAV descent you closely monitor the weather/winds conditions and manually adjust your top of descent if needed, rather than blindly let the FMC compute and guide the aircraft. The reason being, and this is true on the real aircraft as well, is that the early pegasus FMC modeled does not fully calculate the effects of winds etc and will use a formula similar to what we would use aiming to operate to the 3:1 rule. i.e. 30 nm from the airport the aircraft would want to be at 10,000ft, at 10 nm it wants to be at 3300 ft, it does not understand that if you have a strong tailwind you may need to added extra track miles to your descent, and other related concepts.So as the real B757 pilot does we ask that you let the FMC assist and lighten your workload, but you the pilot maintain the control and authority of the aircraft.

I flew the v1.3 update from Dulles to Boston using VNAV all the way to an ILS Cat III landing. It actually flew the vertical and lateral profiles pergectly, all by itself. The only problem I found was that when I entered an altitude constraint (FL240 at NEWES) the subsequent waypoint did not recalculate. It remained higher. I had to interpolate and change it manually, which worked fine. In the end, I would say that the B757 is now a really great aircraft to fly.Bob Lyons

>I would say that the B757 is now a really great aircraft to fly.I'd say it was before. I kinda learned to handle it and enjoy the H out of it in almost all the circumstances I've encountered. Of course, there have been times when........but we won't delve into that here...heh.While we're at it, and since it wasn't mentioned; is the Radio Altitude adjustable in this release?

It was always said that we would work backwards, and that with regards to the B777, any patch for FS9 would be released with the FSX upgrade.

Where is the Update? I've looked all over the PSS Site, and can't seem to find it. I must be blind??? Thanks.
