Hi!
It´s an absolute pleasure to fly that plane! The 600 is my favorite!
My PMDG is parked in the hangar... Wink
Here are 2 problems that I observed on my last 5 flights, the patch is NOT installed yet.
During the last third of the climb, lets say above 18.000 feet, the rate of climb is very poor.
The plane struggles to reach the T/C. On short flights I´m totally unable to reach CRZ ALT, you can watch the T/C on the ND wandering further an further on the magenta line.
The weights are properly configured via the iFLy load manager and all the data ind the FMS is double checked.
The second issue concerns the descent using LVL CHG:
The A/T commands to apply thrust when the speed brake is used during LVL CHG-descent.
That makes it nearly impossible to slow the plane down and hold the selected speed. My workaround for this is to disengage the A/T while in LVL CHG.
Actually the FMA should announce RETARD when LVL CHG is engaged and the throttles should move to idle.
Are these 2 things on the list for SP1?
Thanks in advance & greets,
Michael
