FMS vs. Holding Entry


Recommended Posts

Hello.

 

I also noticed how most of the holding entry patterns are not well flown by the AP/NAV based on the FMS inserted holding (it works only with a perfect holding already aligned with my flown track, whatever needs to be entered based on an entry pattern won't work...).

A/C is always making out of reasons turns when trying to joing the specified holding...

 

Tks for investigating.

Can confirm, AP wasn't able to complete any holding pattern, and I've tried several with different leg sizes. 
Looks good on the  MFD but never gets flown how it is drawn.
Will try to do a video tomorrow.

Crazy, today the four holds were actually quite ok. It turned too early and didn't always enter quite right but other that it was not too bad. 

One thing though, doing the PROVO4 Departure at KPVU it automatically loads the hold at FFU, but after reaching FFU it automatically arms the holding exit.
Can be seen in this speed up video.

 

Will maybe try some more holds tomorrow.

Hello.

 

Same issue for me, I've tried multiple holds but they never worked out (the plane flies pretty randomly in circles).

 

For additional information, I use Navigraph data.

 

I hope this issue can be resolved soon. Or maybe that there is a more simple explanation to this ?!

Still after a loooot of flights I have issues with the not direct entries.

A Direct entry works. The others 2 not at all, at least this is what happens to me in whatever situation I tried in the last month.

 

Is any development in progress about holdings?

Hello again, is the Holding topic one of the first next bug fixes planned soon?

 

I frequently have to enter holdings, I can still do it manually (as I am always forced to do) but having the crj catching them properly whenever would help ;)

Adding here - I've tried several combinations today, I can't get the autopilot to follow a direct entry hold. The path is correct drawn, but the autopilot won't follow it. Hold is active in legs page, but it's seemingly flying a random pattern with now resemblance to the actual path drawn on the MFD. 

 

Any ideas from the Devs?
