Spoiler does not auto deploy upon landing
I am flying a 737-700 add on in fs2004.
When I fly and capture the ILS with the AP and spoilers ARMed, and then turn off AP and hand land, they deploy OK to 100%.
Now, if I hand fly the whole ILS app using only AT and FD and such, but no AP, and with spoilers ARMed, upon landing they do not deploy!
Any ideas as to what I might not be doing right.

Are landing with AT is N1 over 50%? Landing on your Left main first? 3 things can control SpeedBrake ground deployment. 1. Both main wheels spinup(Anti Skid is not INOP), 2. Rt main squat switch depressed, and 3. Throttles. Think about it. I have a tendency to advance my throttles after disengaging AT to ensure they are in fact disengaged. Not the right procedure I'm sure, bad habit. When I do that, I am over 50% even though my intention is to land and full stop. So when I land and get wheel spinup with Spoilers in Arm + throttle@50% no deployment. Rt main squat switch + throttles@50% no deployment. Wheel spinup + Rt main squat switch + throttles@50% no deployment. See a commonality. So I manually land every time. For me its the second time I really feel like I'm flying, the other is takeoff. Of course I could be wrong too.Rodney -
