747Simmer

AP Heading banking slow

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased PMDG 747-400 for my FSX. It is working beautifully but there is one problem I cannot find an answer to and I hope someone can assist. When I have the AP engaged (with Heading and Altitude) and I select a new Heading (via Heading Select knob), most of the time the aircraft banks immediately and rapidly to the new heading as selected. However, it has now happened a few times where after selecting the new heading, the aircraft banks very slowly and will not go beyond 5 degree angle when normally it goes about 20-25 degrees.

The first time this happened is when I inadvertently pushed the Heading Hold button so I am trying to refrain from pushing this. But it has happened again even when not pushing this button. Why it this happening and if this reoccurs, what steps can I take? Thks for any help.

Welcome to AVSIM!

 

Ensure that you are not inadvertently setting the bank angle limit to 5 degrees. This setting is accessed using the same knob, and FSX VC inertia effects may have caused you to change it.

 

The bank angle limit selector is usually set to AUTO. For more information, click the heading selector in this diagram and read under "BANK Limit Knob".

Remember guys,

 

There is a bug with the pmdg 747 when selecting hdg sel and then changing the value.. The aircraft will turn very slowly and 'wobble' a little until you stop changing the value in the mcp.
