Autothrottle - Not keeping up

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I just love the PMDG 777-300ER.  But it is one thing thats annoying me. And that is the autothrottle.

 

I have some problems specialy on approaches when the winds are changing. Depending on the change I either comming in too fast or to slow. And the wind change dosent have to be that big. It can be enough that i get 10-15kts headwind change or so on the last 3-4nm on final. If it is just a littlebit gust I always have to disconnect the A/T and go manualy on the throttle.

The autothrottle IRL have for sure some limitations in heavy winds/gusts, but it cant be so inaccurate ? 

 

My setting for the autothrottle is "In hold mode only", so that shouldent be a issue. Also tried "Never" but same experience.

 

 

Im running P3D v3 with ASN.

 

Anything I can do ?

 

 

Kind regards

Tom Stian Bjerk

The automation will not save you in all circumstances. Yes, AT does have some gust protection in it, but it won't overcome everything. Gusts are different from shear, though.

 

There are settings in the PMDG SETUP > SIMULATION menu that allow you to tune certain aspects of the auto-systems.

See also the discussion on Turbulence in the Introduction pg 154, there is very little that is realistic about gust/shear simulation in flightsim yet.
