Checking controls and VNAV

Recommended Posts

Hi Bryan,When te PNF is checking the controls i only hear him say "centre" the controls are not moving either.The manual says that you have the choice to select heading select with the green button and vnav with the red button after takeoff.heading select works fine but when i press the red button just after 400 feet noting happens?Am i missing something?thanks JAR

Hi JAR,Controls: FS2Crew will attempt to to move the control column (to simulate the FO testing the controls). However, if your joystick is emitting 'noise' or if it moves slightly it will override FS2Crew's attempt to manipulate the control column.Try increasing the null zone on your yoke to reduce the likelihood of this interference from happening.Red Button is for LNAV after 400 feet: If nothing is happening it is likely that the FMC is not configured properly to accept LNAV so LNAV would not engage anyway.The test is to try engaging LNAV manually. Cheers,Bryan

Hello Bryan,I will try a different setting for my joystick.Sorry i meen LNAV. The LNAV is working when i manually select it. I have a route and SID programmed and all parameters are set.I press the red button when i am above 400feet. Is there a upper limit for the red button to work?thanksJAR

Hi JAR,The range is 400 to 1000 feet above the runway. That's the window of opportunity.Cheers,Bryan
