AFS not resetting after first leg

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,I flew the trip EDDC - EHAM - EGLL. After landing in EHAM, I shut down the engines, entered my new FPLN to EGLL, entered takeoff data as usual and then started the engines. Up to this point everything seemed normal. While taxiing, with idle power set, I pressed the Autoflight button and suddenly my engines spooled up to takeoff power! Then I quickly disengaged the ATHR and AP (with the soft disconnect switches) and re-engaged them, this time working correctly. The FMA indications were correct and I armed NAV and PROF. Takeoff was eventless but as soon as I was airborne, the engines spooled back to CLB THR (that was also displayed as the thrust limit on the engine display). During the takeoff roll the limit was FLEX 48

One thing I might add:the second issue, namely the one with the thrust after engine failure, it happened on the first leg. The FMC did identify that an engine failed (confirm EO) but even after confirming it, the THR LIMIT remained in CLB.Mark

Re-Bump!Not trying to be a pain here, just would like a reply from a beta tester and/or dev to make sure this post doesn't go unnoticed - I'd appreciate it!All in all, the MD11 is a marvelous piece of software and I think, a couple of issues aside, it has the potential to become THE current reference simulation for the MSFS platform!RegardsMark

Mark, I can't help other than to say I didn't experience this in my testing. I did many two and even three leg flights, without issue.I'll ask others, maybe someone else has experienced it.

Ok this has happened to me once again. It seems the MCDU does not reset correctly after landing.The symptoms: when pressing autoflight on the ground the engines spool up by themselves (thrust levers are in idle before) and once airborne the thrust limit is reduced to CLB immediately!

See FMS90.1: After landing, the MCDU will transition to DONE state but you need to press a key to put it in PREFLIGHT state. Just wondering if you caught this detail?

Hi Dan,well I entered a whole new flight plan, so as long as the MCDU is programmed (by PMDG, not by the user) correctly, it should have reset its internal states correctly, right?

I have noticed this too, but if I press the "INIT" button on the FMS it resets everything and clears everything at the top of the PFD I.E... Nav & thrust modes.
