In the FIX page there should be 4 not 2. P.s, good job on the FMC it looks and performs great, not found anything wrong yet apart from 4 FIX's and not just 2 Wink

be nice!

Obeying approach v-ref, the nose is pitched down on approach and
if I lower the speed to correct it, the plane reaches the ground
short of the runway!

I do not know if this comes under a problem with the display or the FMC, so I'm putting it here.

If, after activating and executing a flight plan in the FMC (CDU), if I make any changes to the plan, and then press the EXEC button, the flight plan tracks do not change to a solid magenta lines. They remain, what looks like, a cross between dotted magenta and dotted blue lines. The MCP will till follow the flight path of the modified. The old waypoints (no longer required ones) remain visible on the PFD.

This is in the "known issues" thread above. There will be a popup, it just doesn't exist yet.

Hi,

The navigation system doesn't work. I had update airac and type into FMS route from UUDD to ULLI. Firstly, airports (UUDD, ULLI) were not shown on ND, secondly, all waypoints of route were shown AFTER EXEC of route. Then I'd need to type SID. I have type it. Suddenly route losed and was shown only SID. Route kept only on FMC, on ND it losed. It is doesn't possible to fly on it. May be, I do some not right? Huh

But I have try to fly one more time, but it this time, waypoints were not shown, and after EXEC of route too. Also, the GS and wind don't shown on ND. And baro-altimetr does not work too and many many many many many others!!!

Also,I have interested, then released base version (1.0) can I get FREE update from 0.2 to 1.0 or it will be payware?

Free updates.

Just Noticed this but when I go to align the IRS the it starts to align but then it resets somehow and asks me to put in the coordinates again.

Yep I have this too, it gets aligned only if I used the GPS coordinates, not the gate or airport entered ones.

Some observations after a full normal flight.

- NO T/D is calculated in the FMC.

- Somehow the plane doesn't except the Performance information if requested via the FMC. Keying it in manually fixes the problem.

VNAV does not work very well.
- Can't hold a steady climb rate.
- Climb thrust isn't reduced when arriving at the cruising altitude. Engines continue to operate at full power.
- VNAV randomly commands the plane to descend sharply while at Cruising altitude and then after descending the plane ascends sharply back up at full power and misses the target altitude... In simpler terms the plane sometimes cruises in a wavey pattern vertically.
*Edit - Also noted that when flying eastbound with a heavy tailwind this is more likely to happen. [(second tidbit - not sure if this is because of me or because of the plane but I cant change the altitude via the 2D MCP pop up panel. Only allows me to change the value from 100 to 1000).


LNAV works perfectly for me, No issues found with it in all the flights I have done yet.

(P.S. I know I might have posted some of these findings in another topic but I thought I would post it here also since it is more suited for the Autopilot topic.)
(I will also continue posting more bugs I find and the solutions I found to fix them. Only thing that I have not been able to find a workaround for so far is VNAV... seems like 50% of my current problems that I have not found a fix for comes from here.)

VNAV is working very well for me. I am not seeing any of the problems you have mentioned above. I have only done one flight in really foul weather (mainly due to the fact that the ability too take off and raise the gear was not 100% guaranteed), but it behaved itself for that flight too.

Are all you flights started from the 777-200 Cleared for takeoff (KSEA) flight? Because that is where it really counts at the moment.

I always start my flight via the scenario. I also should say flights are touch & go for me... as I do more flights I see different bugs in each flight.. So on the flight I did before this one I didn't see some of these issues.. I'm just reporting back all the different things I see because surprisingly not every bug is apparent in each flight I do lol
