Update 1.10.8383.0: Autobrake RTO in flight

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

can anyone confirm that they are also seeing the the autobrake switch does not jump to OFF after takeoff but remains 

in RTO? Made three takeoffs with the same result. Wanted to run it by you before I submit a ticket.

 

Thanks,

Hello,

As I did a test flight with the update 1.10.8383.0, I noticed that the autobrake remains at the RTO position after lift off. And also I can set the autobrake to RTO in air. Anyone has the same issue?

Submitting the ticket to make it official. And no, no controller or key commands controlling the switch.

It seems that it is not a 'system' fault: I do hear the spring back sound of the selector when lifting off, with 'Autobrake RTO' message gone in EICAS, but somehow the selector is still displaying at the RTO position.

For me the following: Make an autoland, when setting up on the runway the Autobrakes do not attack and the thrust remains unchanged the nose stays up. Only when I self brake the 777 the nose.

The ticket has been submitted.  Not much else we can do here other than remember to manually reset the switch.

Same here. Might just be an animation bug because when I go to manually switch it to "OFF" it flicks to the "Disarm" notch.

I do also confirm this.

One other thing that I've noticed since the latest update is that during rollout while the autobrakes are doing its thing the red message on the bottom-left side of the screen doesn't appear. In only does when you manually apply the breaks. Additionally, during parking, with the chocks set, if you release the parking brakes, the red "parking brakes" message also dissapears. Does this happen to anybody else?

Other than that, I specially like the update on the friction physics, I find it quite more realistic.

And one more thing although it might be unrelated.

Before commencing pushback using the built in GROUND OPERATIONS  and GSX, auto ground ops does remove the wheel chocks (as it should) and that particular event is supposed to disconnect everything (such as GPU, PSU).

However, GSX cannot commence push back, but it does send a message to remove PSU first. So one has to set the chocks again, manually remove the a/c unit, then remove the chocks and then and only then shall GSX push the aircraft back. I can't recall it was like this before.

This is by design because of the very thing you like, friction physics. PMDG designed the friction models outside of P3D and that's why you will not see that brakes message when using the autobrake when using the 777 and the 747. Not seeing that message when using the auto brake means the system is working as it's designed to.
