Speed Brake Not Up

Recommended Posts

Flying the PMDG 737 NGXu with FS2Crew on P3D v4.5  It does not happen every time, maybe 1 out of 10 landings??  But with the speed brake armed I sometimes get the announcement from the F/O speed brake not up upon landing.  Anyone know why?  Thanks.

Are you using any hardware connected to the speedbrake?

Yes, I use the Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant.  I visually confirm in the cockpit that the speedbrake is armed during the landing checklist.

Ummm I usually get that when I've made a bad landing and bounced.

I thought possibly the same thing, and it may be true.  Not making a joke here but is it possible to land too softly and they don't deploy?  I always check my landing FPM on Luvcars before I submit my flight and it happened recently on about a -70 FPM touchdown.  Usually I'm around in the -100 to -200 range and sometimes firm -350.

Are the spoilers auto deploying?

I guess I need to look at an outside view next time to see if they are indeed up or not.  I was just going by the F/O callout that they aren't.

If the FO didn't call them out, the spoilers probably didn't auto deploy.

Generally you want to land firm enough to ensure the aircraft can properly sense you're actually on the ground.
