    PMDG 737 NGX Vertical speed hold problem

    Thanks everyone for your help! Really appreciate it ! Just one thing I want to share. When I tried taking the plane for a flight again I ended up pressing ALT Hold by mistake. I turned it off and pressed VS hold and just like that it started working again! So I tried this a couple more times and it turns out that If I press VS hold after ALT hold, the plane starts ascending and descending according to the vertical speed I input. No problems at all! but I'm really starting to think that VNAV or LVL CHG is a better option.

    Thanks for the help Christoph but after takeoff I usually turn on speed hold so my speed is automatically controlled. I do monitor my speed to make sure the auto throttle is working fine. I'm not entirely sure on how to properly use VNAV so I just stick to V/S

    It actually does read CMD when I switch on the autopilot. But for some reason, even though VS hold is activated and it shows on the PFD, the aircraft goes into either a dive or a stall.

    aside from the trim, any other ideas why the aircraft is dipping? the VS hold is set to 1800+ and as soon as i turn on CMD A the nose starts dropping. i do a manual override and bring the nose back up but when i engage VS again, the plane lifts its nose and goes into a stall.

    im pretty sure i set takeoff trim properly. i'll try turning off REALISTIC A/P ENGAGEMENT.
  7. Hey guys! i'm new to the pmdg 737 and i've done a couple of flights with it with no problems whatsoever. Recently during a flight, just after takeoff, i turned on heading select, speed hold and vertical speed hold but after turning on the master autopilot, the plane's nose starts dropping and i start losing altitude, so then i have no option but to manually bring the plane back up. this has been going on for some time and it's really irritating. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks !
