    Unstable FD

    Hello all,
    when i capture a VOR Radial or an ILS localizer, the FD reacts very jumpy.

    I cant follow a VOR Radial without AP off, because as soon as i capture the radial, the vertical FD BAR runs very fast to the right, or to the left. I doesn't move as smoothly as i should. I tought it could be a slow network, but this isn't the problem after many performance checks i made.

    Any Idea where to search?

    Have nice christmas days

    Regards

    Thomas

    Re: Unstable FD

    What angle are you intercepting the radial at? At what distance from the navaid?

    Hey Grant,

    happy christmas to you and all other members.

    I intercept the radial within 20 degrees and direct over the VOR. I case of ILS i intercept it about 20 miles from the runways.

    Regards

    Hello,
    and mary christmas from
    germany.
    The unstable F/D function is within the latest GC build only. I reverted back to GC build 464 and the F/D is working fine again.

    Hi Brian,

    mary christmas to you too...

    I allready use the build 464 and i also tried the 462, but the F/D runs away from center-point as soon it is centered for just a half second.
