View Full Version : Fcu 286

Just wanted to ask how is this new FCU 286 update working with
other simmers? I have some problems at approach phase.
The Aircraft (project airbus A320) sometimes suddenly goes up like it
tries to perform toga ?

It seems that I might be the only
Airbusdriver that updated to newest
Versions? Who else is flying airbus?

Hi there,

I have been using this FCU too and did not notice problems on apprach. The only odd thing
I have experienced is that just after takeoff the engines go to idle and then start spooling
up again to TOGA thrust very slowly. In order not to crash the plane I need to intervene
and level out or even start to descend slowly to let the speed increase again.
As the engines regain thrust I can start climbing again. Send email to enrico about it.
Lately I have been very busy and did not fly a lot so more on this in the future

Thanks for a reply. I also have experienced this behaviour
after TO. Approximately 600 passengers have been killed so far.
If You noticed, when you add those numbers to the corresponding
gate detent there is wider scale. Before ti was 0-100 and now it is
from 16383-0. This gives me better feedback from a throttle, but
caused propably some problems with my Saitek hardware. Strange
thing is that once I got all calibrated/configured via FSUIPC/FSX next time I start FSX the throttle is not working good any more? For example from 16383 it comes down good but in the middle of the lever movement, values goes up more than 50000? that means A/T goes TOGA etc. Are You using SIOC by the way?

I have the same problem with the throttle gate.Beofre with FCU282 no problem but now there is a bug.So I come back to 282 for moment .I think we must to send mail to PM support.
