Vertical Stabilizer Config Warning?

Recommended Posts

I have read the last topic in regards to this and need to confirm whether this is a bug or not so I can submit a ticket. First time this warning has appeared - I normally set the CG in the FMC and set the trim level on each and every flight depending on load level, and the trim value also changes depending on the load. Only thing I did differently was change the Cost Index from 85 to 120. Set trim - taxiied out as usual then as I was about to takeoff "Stabilizer Config" warning. - I then stopped - checked the trim it was at 0 ??? I set it again to 5.25 for that flight, proceeded to takeoff and the alarm sounded again..

Do you have a hardware trim axis (trim wheel on your hardware)? If you do, and it is at zero, it may occasionally override whatever setting is in the sim.

Nope I use joystick buttons to trim up or down.

That's good, but still, can you go into your settings and confirm that you do not have an axis assigned to trim. That or check to ensure there's no button conflicting with the FSX default reset trim command.

 

Either way, this sounds more like a configuration issue on your machine than a legitimate bug. That doesn't mean you shouldn't submit a ticket, but I wouldn't assert that it's a bug.

WIll do that tonight, I doubt I have ever set an Axis for trim, but will check nonetheless. Thanks for the help..

There is a bulletin in front of FCOMv1 regarding false alarms in certain cases. You might try to find that article (easy using Ctrl+F) and rule out this case.

Wasn't a false warning I took off,thinking it was a false warning, and the 777 wouldn't climb at all. Elevator trim set to 0...

Ah yes, that would wake one up. Sorry, I didn't read the whole thread.  In that case, what Kyle said.
