ok so I finally got my 747-400 and took her for a test flight (first one in this model)I am in FSX, I am not in Lnav, vnav I am just going for a free flight. I have set the FMC for just airport to airport, no waypoints etc... set FL220. Doing the usual set up on the AP I have my heading and speed they are fine.. I reach FL220 and she settles, then within seconds off we go, 23000, 24000..... 28000... she ain't gonna stop, we're climbing..... ATC screaming at me to expedite my descent... I can't??? What's going on?Adam Smith

Hi AdamDid you program a cruise alt in the FMC? What did you use to climb with? FLCH or V/S? And did you remember to actually press the alt button? If you don't press it the FMC alt will get prioritized.

Can I suggest trying the tutorial flights. Then when you are trying things "your way", you can say what it was that you did differently. It will help a lot in diagnosing what you did wrong.
