A small report from a beginner

Recommended Posts

Firstly i  am impressed as always by the quality of PMDG.

Secondly , I just want you to share my 50/50 thoughts around an sales strategi like , Airbus hitting the market in a 3-6 year window. How about that ?

But back to business. I must admit i never had the time to load both. My vacation

 was consuming the Airbus

I  am a very amateur 747 sim pilot so i do break a leg before asking. .

Concern 1: Delay of action 

Autopilot seems like having an old CPU installed right ?

Concern 2 : Extremely trim to be used to maintain level during downwind leg etc. Also very challening to maintain manual teqnique.

I tried some circuits and just to confirm . Do you really see a massive drop in V/S when turning and in trim ? Worse with flaps extended

Looking forward to some videos with prof advise (Airline2Sim)

Thanks

Michael Moe

Sounds like you are over controlling..., not sure what "extremely trim" refers to because I find her a very easy airplane to hand fly but make pitch changes slowly and deliberate.  Excessive loss of altitude in a turn simply means you're not applying back pressure in the bank. You're not flying a FBW aircraft, she flies like a big heavy powerful Cessna.

Maybe my bank is to much. Everything besided 15degr.  is a no go . She drop at least 400-800/f/m.

Trim is to to controlled here

 

Thanks
