  1. Hi Folks, every time i try to lift my new PMDG 737 NGX in the air both engines return to hardware thrust-lever position after 75% of the take-off run (Autothrust still active!).The cockpit is set up as usual, V2 is set from QRH recommendation in FMC.I´m sure it´s my mistake, but i don´t find out which settings are wrong. Who can give me some information?Looking forward to your help... Happy Landings Matth (IVAO Germany)
  2. Situation: Flying manually with A/T disengaged (A/T ARM off), FDs on in HDG SEL/ALT, SPD window open to appropriate bug speed. Setting up for an RNAV approach. I want to get VNAV PTH guidance on the approach, so I select VNAV on the MCP. Immediately A/T goes into SPD, window blanks, and target speed increases to DES. The first time I noticed this I was flying level at bug speed, when the A/T kicked in back to 240k it really upset the apple cart. Per FCOM 4.10.3, with the A/T Switch OFF, A/T activation is disabled. Is this something the real bird does?
  3. Hi folks, during my today's flight CPA17 VHHH-VOMM with Cathay Pacific's 747F B-LIC I experienced again with and only with EPR as primary thrust indicator an oscillating thrust while taking off and after some stabilsation again during my climb. (PMDG 747 V3 - FSX 3.00.8466) 1. The aircraft FMC was well prepared, the A/C not too heavy, TOW 255 tons only, 2. LNAV, VNAV armed, after 50% N1 I engaged TO/GA. 3. EICAS displayed a TO2 EPR of 1.43 4. The throttles rapidly move back and forth so that EPR oscillates between 1.56 and 1.33. 5. Similar during climb at FL270: EPR1.46 but oscillating between 1.58 and 1.32. 6. On top I witnessed that throttle levers were *not* in sync: In this occasion throttle lever of ENG1 moved forward (engine response accordingly) while the levers of ENG2-3-4 moved backwards. Their oscillation let the aircraft's nose wiggle, noticable on the ND as the dashed line of the path indicator waves like a dog tail. I checked by pushing E1234 that all levers *are* in sync, but to no avail. Huh... A. What is going on? B. What is my mistake? C. As somebody seen as well the out-of-sync thrust levers? Thanx in advance.
  4. Hello Avsim Members! In this forum I am asking you about the TOGA when taking off. My question is (and there are more), What is it?? Is it the autothrottle?? Basically, I watch videos on flight simming, like Matt Davies, Q8Pilot and many others. Most of the time, when taking off, I hear a switch flicked at takeoff and I hear them say 'and TOGA'. ????? See the vid here: https://youtu.be/-V7CmyKmZs0?t=11m34s I hope the link opened up. OK So my questions are: What is it? What is it for? Where can I find it? When do I use it? And finally, Is it the autothrottle? Please also include pictures such as where can I find it, if it is not the autothrottle. Thanks, JWMuller
