777 Autopilot Issues

After my long flight from EGLL to KLAX, I was on final Approach in the newly updated B777-200ER. Once I was on final and captured the ILS, I disengaged Autopilot and the plane almost pointed 45 degrees downwards. I always make sure to calibrate my device before disengaging autopilot so it cant be this reason. Since it only happens with this plane, I believe that Infinite Flight made corrections to the Autopilot Systems, ensuring the turns between fixes are smoother which unfortunately created a small bug when disengaging AP. Any Ideas?

Did you use trim? BTW Welcome to the community!

Hello there!
Did you know your trim?

Also welcome to the community enjoy your stay :)

It is harder in real life because you don’t have a reactive yoke in front of you so you will often need to pull up (or using more trim) some when turning off AP to accommodate.

did you calibrate before landing
it can play a big factor when on approach

Howdy, welcome to the community! Make sure you are adding the appropriate trim when inbound and are at a manageable speed. I usually set my trim to about 20% for the 777-200ER. Try testing that out in solo mode and see how it goes.
