Does anyone already experienced a switching flight phase on the 747 ? I can master the AP from T/O to CRZ, but as soon as I switch to descent phase, there’s nothing I can do anymore with it ! The AP seems just broken :
- Nose up like if it was climbing at 3500ft/mn, even when it descending at 2500ft/mn
- ALT hold doesn’t work anymore
- V/S is “working” with a perpetuel delta of 500 to 1000ft
- When I finaly get stabilized, if I dare to touch to even 1° of flaps, I totally lose the altitude AP again…
I had to attempt a manual landing, by night, with low altitude clouds and mountains… Guess how it ended…
I don’t think I’m able to stay in front of my PC for a 9h-flight. I mean I HAVE to switch navigation phases for some routes. But since it seems to crash everything, this aircraft looks just unflyable at the moment for me.
Did someone experience the same type of issues here ? Did you manage something, or any trick to share ?
Thank you for your replies.
