Airbus Pro T.O And Banks Questions

Thu Jul 17, 2003 2:12 pm

Okay, before you read this please understand that I have looked through my manual and tried to register on Phoenix Sim Software's forum. (Never could sign up :-?) I have three problems with it, maybe I'm just handling them wrong, or my game is weird. First off is trim. I take off with about 1.7 trim up, and land anywhere from 1.7 to 3.0 trim. However, the elevators look like they are trimmed to about 8 from the outside! It looks like that, don't know if its for sure. My second is the T.O and Landing memo pages. The T.O memo page will never leave! It will stay there with everything completed, and the landing memo page (on EICAS) will never show up. Followed everything in the manual too! Also, I know that Airbuses are restricted to less than 30 degree banks, but I can bank mine up to 90 degrees without any contradiction. Has anyone here ever experienced these problems? Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

You cannot use a Hotmail, Yahoo or similar email address for the forums.
There has been too much abuse of those in the past so now all are banned.

Don't manually trim the Airbus. The autotrim works just fine.
As to the elevators being tilted all the way when taxiing after landing, just shut down the FD and they will return to normal. Probably a limitation of FS.

Don't press test button (top row, t/o test or something I think it's called) on the center console after you start your takeoff roll or your MCDU and EICAS will indeed be locked in takeoff mode.
Any other button is OK, but not that one! Only use that button while on the ground before turning onto the runway, it's part of your pre-takeoff checklist, never to be used after that.

Don't know about bank angle limiter. As I understand it the limiter can be overridden by the pilot at any time so it effectively limits the autopilot only.
I wish I were flying

Okay, you cleared some things up. Thanks! I'll use those tips when I fly it next! Thank you very much.

Okay, tried not pressing T.O config, and I still have the memo thingy still there. I just pressed it once while on default flight from Miegs, and then never again after that. It also read T.O check or (something)...TEST. Maybe its because I'm on the rwny when I do this? ?:-l
