Post-SP1 braking problem

Recommended Posts

A friend of mine and I are both seeing the autobrakes lock up the brakes when the selector is rotated to off from another setting. Pressing on the brake pedals does unlock them. I'm using PFC pedals, he has Saitek Pro pedals.During two test flights, the autobrakes worked during landing (setting 2), then foot brakes worked normally for the rest of the rollout. However when the autobrake switch was selected to OFF the brakes locked up until the pedals were re-applied.

Correction to the above...the autobrakes did not work normally after landing...I think I attributed the gradual slowdown effected by reversers on a long rwy to the autobrakes. On closer examination, the autobrake system is not actually applying brake pressure until the DISARM light illuminates, at which time it applies full braking pressure, as detailed in the other brake thread.
