Autopilot dico on APP

Recommended Posts

I didnt have this issue with the NGX in P3dV3 but have it in V4.

On final just about the time I hear 50ft the AP disconnects and I have to manually land it. I did not have this issue with PMDG NGX in V3.

Am I doing something wrong, is there a setting in the FMC I should change. How can I do a CatIIIC if my AP disco's

Thank

Randy Smith

Have you got any weather injected? Windshear etc on the final approach can cause the autoland to quit and hand everything back to you.

I am flying a flight without wind right now to see if that is the culprit. I forget if there is a way to disable winds in AS16.

V4 is not V3. I know that sounds stupid, but do remember that the new sim needs to get re-calibrated, and your axes need to be re-checked. If you have a rogue, or uncalibrated trim axis, or a null zone too narrow for your yoke, and the sim detects a spike...there goes the AP!

Don't assume V4 is just going to pick up on everything you did to get V3 stable.

And if it has been calibrated? I don't have this issue with the 747 pr 777.

Something is causing it to drop. The AP doesn't just drop out unless there's a reason. My bet is that you're doing something different in the others, or the stars just didn't align the same way on those flights.

I flew a flight tonight and disabled wind and got it on the ground with AP still connected. I will try another similar flight tomorrow.  The only error was I forgot to set the autobrake and went off the end of 4 at KLGA.
