Good Morning

Herewith some positive feedback.

Yesterday I uninstalled every file/folder regarding the CS B757 III.
I then down loaded the 3 x files IE: base + update + freighter.
I installed these files in the same order as per the prescribed guidelines noted in this forum.
Disabled the AV also the Windows defender.
The only thing I did not do was update the Navigraph file.

I then selected a airport EGNX with RWY09, ALT FL330 and runway HDG.
I used the PW freighter model with zero cargo and 11.7 tons of fuel.
I did not program the FMC.
Set the flaps and took off maintaining RWY heading.
At 1800' I activated the AP, selected the FLCHG and "played" with the speed in the climb until FL330.
About 5 min after activating the A/T I pulled the throttle of my J/stick back to ZERO.
I climbed to FL330 at various speeds without the T/Levers "moving" backwards and or forward.
I flew at FL330 for about 10 min and then started the descent to FL110.
First I selected a descent SPD of 270 Kts after 5 min changed it to 285Kts.
After about 7 min I decreased the speed to 238Kts, and this happened as normal with the A/C slowly decreasing its speed.
I then flew at FL110 for about 6 min and then decreased the speed once again to 185 Kts, staying at FL110.

Conclusion is that whilst all this was being done with selecting the diff speeds the T/Levers never did what it did with my previous experience.
With that said I must also admit that I did not have the 1.301/02 installed, when flying the "problem flight"

I shall get to a proper flight with the FMC programmed, and the AS16 also running together with FSX-SE. I run Win 7 64bT Home Edition.

I am using a very cheap J/stick with the "twist" function and 1 x throttle.

Hope that the "pulling back" as someone wrote earlier in this forum solved my problem.

Will keep you posted/ updated on this matter.

Regards

Autothrottle - cruise

Hi,

I'm onto my second flight today - having had the aircraft for some time but not really flown it. It is up to date.

The autothrottle holds climb power exactly as commanded but once level in the cruise it seems to be 'seeking' all of the time, and the throttle levers move constantly. This is not the case in the real aircraft - certainly not this sensitive.  Is there a fix planned?

Thanks.

Ian.

I've tried the open/close throttle route and the problem still persists, I have also adjusted the null zone of my throttle also to no avail...edit - just disabled all of my physical controllers and the issue is still there, constantly 'seeking' up and down. I'll fly the PW later and see if the issue is the same...

Problem solved - of a fashion. It seems the cause was the effects/turbulence settings in EZDOK 3. Turned the turbulence off and the problem has gone...
