yep,i have the same problem, even on Clb2 it does climb very fast and with good speed. I have the problem of approachs, my FMC says Flap 30 with a landing speed of 165kts with 726 Gross weight, but the problem is if i slow down to that speed on approach with that flap setting, the plane stalls and i crash a few NM from the runway, i have to keep the speed up and land at ~180kts with a flap 5 or 10 at most,the other problem is that sometimes the loc captures and sometimes it doesnt, i press the LOC button for the localiser then when the diamond starts coming down i press the APP button, then the LOC illuminated goes off and then the plane comes down properly with the APP but i land off course because it hasnt picked up the localiser properly.

It's a problem with the pitch controller actually. Right click on the INIT button in the MCDU - this will bring up an undocumented A/P tuning screen. Press Next Page a couple time until you see a section for controlling airspeed with pitch. Change the max controller acceleration from 2.0 to 0.4 (on the 319) or 0.6 (for the 320 or 321). This will elicit a much gentler response from the autopilot and should prevent the wild nose pitching on climbout.I also recommend that you go to the page on turn rates and change the max/min roll accel/decel from 8 and 10 to 6 and 8 respectively.There's a number of posts on this subject in the PSS forum.Cheers,J
