Hello everybody!

Thx. :Peace:

I think its right below the ADIRU, and next to the PFC off the top of my head.

 

Edit:  Just checked, confirmed.  Below the ADIRU.  Called "THRUST ASYM COMP"

If you disable it, the effects are still mild due to MSFS's limitations when it comes to modelling of asymmetric thrust, but you'll certainly notice the difference :-)

Hello guys!

 

Just found on the youtube, you can see TAC in action @ 0:25

and some RTO actions and very hot brakes! This is a B777-300ER :smile:

There's an old T7 cockpit video around, where a Cathay Pacific Captain gives a guided flightdeck tour in a Level D simulator. At the end of the tour he demonstrates a number of flight envelope protections (bank, pitch, stall protection) ... and the TAC:

The vid is NOT up to today's standards, but if you can get it in a sale ...

 

Try the TAC yourself by cutting off an engine during or after takeoff. Upselect the flight controls display on one of the DUs prior to T/O - PMDG's recreation is amazing!
