  1. Dear All, Here's an interesting twist. I operated the spoilers on ground using the switch that has been allocated for it as part of my pre-flight checks. When I took off, the aircraft behaved like the spoilers were extended (even though they weren't) as the speed did not exceed 180 knots. I then abandoned the flight, restarted MSFS and tried again, this time not touching the spoilers before take-off and the aircraft behaved perfectly. Best regards, Peter
  2. Dear All, I managed to complete a flight with no major issues. I removed the link between the spoiler axis and the speed brake lever on my CH quadrant, so it is only activated by a switch. The main issue now is that the engine speed doesn't remain constant which makes it impossible to maintain a constant speed during the cruise. Best regards, Peter
  3. Hi, Many thanks for your reply. Just to say that I didn't press ESC at all on my last flight. Also, may I ask why I should assign the spoiler axis to any lever? This is normally what I do, using FSUIPC to do this. Best regards, Peter

  5. Hi, Feedback on my latest flight. The issue seems to be with the flight spoilers. They seem to be activated randomly and when looking at the outside view, there were no signs that they were extended. When I was taking off, I had a take-off config warning - flight spoilers deployed. However the spoilers were fully retracted. I cycled my airbrake lever a couple of times and then the warning went away. During the approach, I had the messages a few times flight spoilers deployed and eventually managed to clear them by pressing the "/" button.
  6. Hi, I was watching a YouTube by the Sim Pilot "Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 | SUNDAY STREAM" on April 11 and he had exactly the same problem about an hour into the stream. Best regards, Peter

  8. Hi, I had the same problem again. Cruising with no problem, then about an hour into the flight, the airspeed suddenly increased and then it just decreased down to 140 knots at 30000 ft with the engines at the maximum speed. Somethings nor right here obviously. Best regards, Peter
  9. Hi, I had a similar experience on my first test flight yesterday. I was cruising at 36000 ft and all of a sudden the airspeed dropped and the engine N1 speed was wildly fluctuating (70-95%) without me moving my throttles. The airspeed started to reduce and even with the throttles set to TOGA is was only achieving 180 knots. Fortunately, I had reached the point where I had to descend anyway and I managed to complete my flight. I did leave the flight to update my graphics settings. I suspect that the problems started after I resumed the flight. That would account for the "p
  10. Hi, I must be missing something. I read the manual and it says to use the mouse centre wheel to operate switches that have 3 positions. When I try this, nothing happens or the cockpit moves around with the mouse. May I ask what I'm doing wrong here? Best regards, Peter Keenan
