Complete failure of AP

Recommended Posts

I cannt seem to get the 777 to work :( Every flight I do it does this. I climb happily then after a while cruising this happens.

Just off the top of my head... are you using an external weather app?  Major (and sudden) wind shifts at altitude can frequently cause this to happen.  Just a thought.

Yes I am using As2012. i disabled turbulance in FSX. The 777 was working perfectly on my other PC. All AS2012 settings are the same.

 

Perhaps a sepearte issue but my cabin alt is crazy!

After closing As2012 it seems to have solved it. Anyone actually got As2012 working with this plane?

Yes, did 3 flights with AS2012, including a 7 hour flight and a 13 hour flight.

I've been usung AS2012 and all is fine, 6 long haul flights done so far.  FSX disabled turbulance, FSUIPC winds setting to smoothed and the recommended AS2012 setting for PMDG aircraft as listed in the AS2012 manual.

Thats the settings I have. Do i need to disable change weather over time in FSX as well?

Still having AP trouble even after disabloing all weather and FSUIPC. As you an see its not following the LNAV at all.

Just to cover one possible issue, are you by any chance reloading the same aircraft on top of itself?

 

Another possible issue: are any failures showing in the CDU failures section? You can also press the recall button and see if any messages show up on the EICAS.

 

A third possible issue: what other addons do you have connected?

It looks like you're saying you've disabled all weather AND FSUIPC.  You need FSUIPC, maybe you ment 'in' FSUIPC.  There is a option in FSUIPC that helps control weather on more complex aircraft like PMDG.

No I'm not realoading the plane.

 

There are no failures.

 

Only VoxATCX.

 

There is only FSX default clear skys. In FSUIPC I have tried both unchecking "smooth winds" and checking.

Are you starting the flight from Cold and Dark? Quite a few issues seem to be associated with that startup situation, although the only thing I've experienced is the caution light on for no reason.

 

Another question: does this happen with only a certain flight plan, or with flight plans created by a specific program?

Has anyone looked at that picture closely?

Altitude 39,000ft
Temperature +45

 

That's about 100°C higher than it should be.

 

Are you flying online with FSinn? 

If so FSinn is injecting the weather over the top of all your ActiveSky settings.

if you are using FSinn you absolutely must turn off FSinn weather. It overrides any settings or addon weather programs you have and bumps up the outside temperature to resemble Venus more than Earth (It actually just sees negitave temperatures, like -45°C at FL390, as positaves.)

the caution light

See the Caution light when in C&D on GSU. But thereafter it goes off. However,----- and apparently this has been acknowledged as C&D bug-----I cannot change the ILS frequency as it seems to be locked at 113.70.

 

There has been a massive thread about Active Sky somewhere else.

The Cold and Dark panel save state is really buggy. Not only the Caution light that can't be reset, but also ILS frequencies that won't autotune. Basically, Don't use it. I use Short turn and then 'shut down more' if I want to.

After starting up with C&D preset, go to the CDU NAV-RAD page and delete the 113.10 next to LSK4L (I believe, doing this from memory) and all will work fine.

Good catch! Something is certainly supplying bad weather data. (The temp is too blurry for me to read, but it certainly should be in the -30 or more range.)

Thanks Trent & Doug, and a very good sharp-eyed spot on that +45 temp at 39k.

I'm not using FSInn, and have tried from a short start-up with no weather whatsoever. The problem still persists.

 

I am doing the EGLL-OMDB and tutorial route. I will try a different route.

i have the same issue. Do you get the cabin altitude and landing altitude EICAS message when this happens? In my case, when this occurs, I pause the simulation for a few seconds and the the A/P recovers but then exactly after one hour the problem reappears.

Bad weather/temp wouldn't cause the cabin alt to go to "79600" though.

 

When the plane drifts away from its intended path, is its behavior similar to this?

 

 

 

(Yes, it's the NGX. Also, ignore the FS2crew part. That was a red herring).
