    Is the aircraft actually climbing and descending according to the vertical velocity indicator, or is the altimeter only moving up and down?

    Hi Daren,

    same here...
    I reverted back to FCU280 immediately. Cruise was too bad...
    I also send mail to Enrico about itand jonathan intercepted it blaming the flight model.
    However, I immediately replied him that version 280 could do the job perfectly on my flight model.
    Enrico is on business trip again so we wont hear from him soon.

    The strange thing is that sometimes FCU280 also fails to keep the cruise alt. Like saturday,
    I flew EBBR-EFHK ... cruising at FL390 ... no issues, perfect flight...
    then I went to eat without shutting my cockpit... came back and programmed the next trip
    from EFHK to EFRO (ivao flyinn). Since this is a short hop I put FL290. When reaching this
    the plane was going up and down... unable to keep alt. I thought maybe its related to the altitude... so with approval of controller I got to FL320.. still the same ****...
    I closed the FCU, started it again ... and problem gone.. perfect cruising for the remainder
    of the flight at Fl320. Its like somehow the fcu becomes very slow in responding and then
    it is too late to move the controls and starts to oscilate the plane.
    Lets see what enrico finds out....
