Brakes temperatures, auto brake disarm, center fuel pumps

Recommended Posts

Are these issues normal?

1. The brake temperature after braking is always 0

2. The fuel center pumps are switched on automatically when I fuel center tanks

3. The autobrake does not disarm when I retract the speedbrake (this is mentioned in ground work of a flyaoamedia)

Full names - first and last - in the forum, please.

 

1 - Based on how FSX/P3D works, braking doesn't produce as much heat (because the drag scalar is rather high in the sim and speed decays quickly on its own)

2 - Correct. It was modeled this way intentionally. If you search the forum, you can see the discussions about it.

3 - It does for me. Can you explain your process prior to landing, through the landing roll?

before touchdown:

speedbrake armed, auto brake is set to 1 up to max, flaps 30 or 40

short before touchdown:

idle thrust

after touchdown:

reverse thrust; speedbrake is up automatically

above 60 KIAS rollout:

short thrust advancement to finsh reverse thrust mode

below 20-30 KIAS:

retracting speedbrake (with key assignment)
