  1. T/D bug

    I'm actually not sure. I haven't had time to fly in a week or so... let you know on the weekend?
  2. Observations of

    Also getting the gear up warning, and the thrust issues as well.
  3. T/D bug

    Happened again today, in LNAV and PROF mode. Descent screen is active, can't go back to CRZ screen, vertical profile bar is active. Didn't come out of LNAV or any mode, but did fly through thunderstorms and got bounced around a bit. Still have hundreds of miles till the TOD waypoint. This is from KEYW to KLGA 2017-7-17_16-40-15-633.bmp
  4. T/D bug

    Seems like it, yeah! I flew the route last night with no deviations, was okay, except as usual, passing the last waypoint before TOD, it slows to descent speed, the vertical profile bar becomes active in the MFD and if you change the altitude before TOD, it'll start descending slowly.
  5. T/D bug

    Didn't trigger flaps/slats but I'm flying it again right now, and it started slowing down almost immediately at cruise. I took it out of NAV mode to divert around a thunderstorm before it started to slow down to descent speed, the vertical profile line is active on the NAV screen and it's asking for drag, because I'm above the speed it wants. The FMC is also in descent mode, not cruise mode.
  6. T/D bug

    Aircraft seems to be going into descent mode well before TOD, slowing down, and then needing to be put in manual thrust mode to maintain speed. This happens on every flight, where the aircraft will descend in a 500fpm dive until reaching TOD if the MCP altitude is moved at all. It's also asking for drag, I imagine because it thinks it should be slower. 2017-7-11_19-6-6-924.bmp
  7. Is TOD a little wonky?

    Just to let you know, latest update is still doing this. Passed my last waypoint before TOD which is 159 miles away right now and it's slowed to the descent IAS of 242 knots, but ignoring the cruise mach of .76, which is also the descent MACH. It also goes into HOLD mode, but If I move the MCP altitude lower, it will descend, when it shouldn't. Any progress on this? 2017-6-29_16-39-31-330.bmp
  8. Flight Plan Disappears P3D V4

    Same here. Just took off for DCA from MDW and it went blank except for a few waypoints on the RNAV into DCA.
  9. Hardware rendering makes displays choppy

    When I enable hardware rendering, all the MFDs on the 717 seem to lose their framerates by about half... any idea? Nvidia GTX970, latest drivers.
  10. Stabilizer

    AFAIK, it's not a warning. Most jets have a sound when the trim is moving and moves more than a couple degrees; that's why you get that shuffle noise in the 737. It's just letting you know that the stabilizer is moving, in case you didn't command it, so you can react.
  11. Exterior Lights

    Probably need dynamic lighting on.
  12. Update today?

    Disregard. Reinstalled, working just fine.
  13. Update today?

    Dunno what update you guys pushed today, it was 2 files, but it has completely broken my 717. Can't flip a switch or anything.
  14. TOD doesn't recalculate

    Figured something out tonight coming into KLAS. When I delete waypoints on the STAR/approach to make them fit together, the aircraft does not recalculate the TOD for the shortened distance. That's why a lot of my PROF descents are high... Any way to look at this?
  15. Is TOD a little wonky?

    So my experience here is limited, and maybe I'm not doing this right, but my 717 behaves oddly trying to get down from cruise in PROF mode. Passing the last waypoint before TOD, it slows down to the descent speed, usually 237 KIAS or so. This can happen hundreds of miles before TOD. And then, if I move the altitude on the MCP, it'll start descending before TOD, but very slowly. My understanding is that it should fly to TOD, and then IDLE CLAMP and down we go at idle like a 737, no? Also, TOD shows up as a waypoint; I've never seen that on any FMC before; Boeing, Airbus, or Bombardier. Is that correct?
