Problem with climbing, speed and AP pitch

Recommended Posts

Greetings all,

I cannot after many attempts climb any higher after reaching around 11000 feet.

The vertical speed levels off because the c421 cannot maintain enough forward momentum as the speed bleeds off. Even after having the throttle at max, it has no affect. AP pitch setting functions intermittently.

Can anyone advise how I can fix the issues?

I’ve reverted back to my trusty F1 B200 Super King Air for the time being.


Regards,

 

Fred Fleuren

Don't forget that you have to lean the engines much more than IRL to achieve the correct engine performance. 

Climb speed should not drop below 111kias. No problem climbing to FL250 at MTOW.

If you want to achieve the maximum climb performance you must use full throttle and max RPM up to FL200.

If you haven't done yet, I suggest to download the latest FDE.

Much appreciated FDEdev.

The FDE works great.
