    Slow Takeoffs

    If you don't need the best second segment climb performance the aircraft is capable of, then try a higher flap setting (instead of flap 5, try flap 20). Best regards, Robin.
  2. I can't configure any air stairs for the 300ER. They don't even appear (works fine on 200). Everything else appears to be OK. Any ideas? Best regards, Robin.
  3. Where the stick is should not affect the trimmer when on the ground. The FBW is bugged so it may not be behaving correctly. I'm not at my simming PC so can't check the manuals for what it should be doing, but I've never had a problem setting trim for takeoff. Best regards, Robin.
  4. So much speculation, so few facts. All we know is it didn't make the intended destination. There are so many oddities and serious questions about what happened, and what did or did not occur in response, that all anyone is doing is feeding the media with unsubstantiated nonsense. I haven't even read this thread because there is no point. Those who know aren't saying; those who don't have too much to say. The aviation expert on CNN said it best: "Idle speculation is pointless. Wait for the conclusion of the investigation". I expect to be waiting several years for this one, if ever. Best regards, Robin.
  5. Rudder trim - lots of rudder trim (and rudder). As written above - it's all to do with airflow, prop dynamics/forces etc... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P-factor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Critical_engine Best regards, Robin.
  6. O/T: why do people photograph their screens??? Not heard of PRT SCN? You can crop the image, too... If the FMC is dumping the SID/STAR then try removing the offending procedure from the database and see if that at least makes the rest of it usable. Best regards, Robin.
  7. Longest for me so far was Hong Kong to Santiago (21 hours and a few minutes). I took just 30 tons of cargo - the rest was fuel. Best regards, Robin.
  8. What is the view "out the window" doing? Is it stuttering/pausing? Best regards, Robin.
  9. You are simply not descending early enough. I've not had any issues so far decelerating. Best regards, Robin.
  10. But they are the best! Best regards, Robin.
  11. Defrag/registry clean will do precisely NOTHING for performance. You must have changed something. Did your AV update a few days ago? Windows Update? Did you install or remove ANYTHING? Best regards, Robin.
  12. Hi,Any comment from PMDG on the Boeing House livery?Best regards,Robin.
  13. It breaks ILS course IIRC.Best regards,Robin.
