Boris,What are you using TO/GA for? If it's for takeoff you don't need to actually push the button, you simply advance the throttle levers and the system will engage TO/GA automatically and set TO thrust for you. It's part of the TO CLAMP functionality.CheersCraig

If you are inquring about the 744, then it would be one of the top screws on the ND mode selector.

Maybe he wants to use it for a go around. This is true, it does mention it in the manual and I can't find the click spot either. Anyone know where it is?

Yes, it is exactly that: Using a clickspot is faster and easier in case of an go around !Boris

Hi all,re the MD-11 i worked around this by assigning strg-shift-G as TO/GA-Button. So whenever there is the need to perform a go-around i simply hit this and i am all set.BestHolger Dallmeyer

..Sorry....a last word from me here to all readers who don't know what is exactly written in the manual theme Autoflight, Page AUTO.10.4 , Go-Around (GA) Switch:"..There is also a clickspot on the Upper Left MCP Screw for use in the 2D cockpit".So that means, this is NOT the white button between the throttles.!.you know..this clickspot has tobe somewhere else. But it looks like nobody knows about it..Thanks for trying to help me,Boris
Boris, You are right, no clickspot on the FCP. I just noticed that in the manuals. Obviously the author of the manuals had in mind the PMDG 747 screw clickspot (hence he wrote MCP instead of FCP).

Thanks for the answer. I knew about the click-spot on the throttles, it was the one mentioned in the manual (screw clickspot) that I've been looking for too.Looks like a key assignment is the best solution.

It would be great if could have a clickspot for activating the Go Around in the Flight Control Panel,...

Thanks for clearing that up , i was also trying to find the GA click spot on the panel as its quicker then opening up the Throttles and pressing the white button , i assigned a key command too ..but i have now brought FS2CREW for the MD11 so no need now , i just use the red GA Button from FS2CREW.
