Hi,I am following a tutorial from PC Pilot. KSFO - KLAX. On touch down the throttles idle and speed brakes on. However they jump back. The auto-brakes also do not appear to activate. This is a supposed to be full auto landing and I am following to the letter. Any ideas?Trevor

Hi Zach,On touch down the throttles idle and then jump back up to original position, and the speed brakes obviously follow. I have everything set for a full auto landing. I arm the speed-brakes on final. I have just noticed that there is an update for this sim on PMDG. Will this sort things?Trevor

Trevor: I do not recall a bug of the nature you are describing. What mode does the FMA annunciate?

Make sure the throttle to your joy stick is at flight idle. If not the sim will try to place the aircraft throttle to the same position as the joystick throttle.Bill
