EPR will not engage/FP dump during quick turn

Unable to do a quick turn in the 757. Just landed at KMCO and parked at gate. With out restarting the sim or reloading the 757 it was decided to just connect external power, reload and refile for a trip up to KJFK. Loaded fuel and flight-plan with no problems. Pushed back and started engines. Engines gave off a audible warning and went off but engines continued to start. Taxied and positioned on runway and set VNAV and LNAV. Throttled up and tried to engage EPR. EPR would not illuminate and a few seconds later the entire flight-plan dumped during takeoff roll. Loaded the flight-plan a second time with same results. 

Not MCP for sure Wink

Not sure if this is normal but in every LNAV turn the autothrottle keeps reducing the throttles to idle and than back up every turn. Speed will drop and than climb back up.

Please report an issue if you are 100% sure it is a bug. Not sure? Please use General Discussion

The pitch command bar should be in nose up position when flight director is switch on.

as of now. the pitch command bar "jump" from level to nose up when AT mode goes to THR HOLD on takeoff.

"250kts below 10k feet

Not sure if this is a bug or just a missing feature, or a feature I am just not seeing, but as of now my plane does not automatically decelerate to 250kts below 10k feet which all other addons do, a automatical deceleration would be very usefull

regards,

Simon

I'm having this problem too.
I also get the "DRAG REQUIRED" message on the CDU, and the speed bug disappears from the Airspeed Indicator, when I drop below 10,000 feet. [i]The speed bug returns when I override the VNAV speed by pressing the IAS/MACH Selector knob on the MCP.

757 Captian Manual 2,page 104

Pitch mode
TO -
On the ground, TO annunciates by selecting either F/D switch ON when both flight directors are OFF. The flight director pitch bar indicates an initial pitch of approximately eight degrees up.
FIXED

BEYOND  THIS  POINT  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE HOTFIX 1.001 INSTALLED

The 1.001 is build with SDK 4.1 so please make sure you are on P3D4 version 4.1.

Do not use any flights you've saved with the 757 1.0.

SPD mode does not seem to engage for me unless I turn on VNAV then back to SPD mode. I am on the new hotfix as well

Can’t change speed on MCP.  Every other MCP knob works fine except speed.  Speed window shows 263 and cannot be changed. 

SW. Use the mouse scroll wheel.

Hotfix 2 installed. When autolanding (APP mode), the aircraft drops below the GS, and either lands right at the beginning of the runway (1st flight post Hotfix 2), or quite a distance before the start of runway (2nd flight post Hotfix 2). Once it drops below the GS, it doesn't even try to recapture it, it just continues descending at the same Vertical Speed that allowed it to drop below the GS in the first place. Sad
