Flex to Temp

Recommended Posts

I still revert back to the MD11 from time to time and its still a joy to fly, it's never crashed FSX, has fab frame rates and the sound within the cockpit is soo soothing!  :Whistle:  :Whistle:  One aspect i've never quite understood however, is the thrust reduction in relation to entered temp.


With the fab 777 and reasonable load, I can enter flex to temp of 65 and it will "feel" heavy on acceleration, use up 3/4 of the runway or more with a gentle climb out. The MD 11 however with a reasonable load and flex temp of 70 still causes the passengers to choke on their false teeth on take off and then climbs like the space shuttle allowing the passengers to retrieve them from their socks!


The max temp allowed is 70 that I can enter into the FMC but the N1 reduction is still above 100%.. I won't ask if its correct because PMDG made, it so its bound to be!  :smile:. 


Is there any way to reduce thrust further using the autothrust for take off ?


Many Thanks and kind regards.


Kevin Jeffery.
