I’ve got a weird autopilot issue.
VS seems to be increasing on its own.
Whenever I’m doing patterns at EHRD, right after take off things start to go wrong.
As shown in the picture, ALT has been set to 1500 and VS to 2000 with a speed of 170 kts.
Then suddenly VS starts increasing rapidly. As you can see the actual VS has already reached almost 5000 ft/m. Eventually the aircraft will stall and crash. Turning off A/P and getting the nose down is the only option.
The weird thing is that this always happens when I take off the first time. When doing T&G’s all other take offs go just fine. I again set ALT to 1500, climb out while increasing VS slowly and hit VS when it’s around 2000. I then adjust it to exactly 2000 and all goes as planned. Only the initial take off has this issue.
I was flying a KLM 739 on the Expert Server.
I’m using an iPad Pro 12.9 inch (iPadPro1) with iOS 10.1.1.
IF version 220.127.116.11888.
U should try lowering ur weight and setting ur flaps to 10° depending on the your takeoff weight and speed. Also try to complete ur initial climb out without autopilot. If ur going to takeoff and put autopilot on right after then it will be best for u to take off with autopilot
There is nothing wrong with take off speeds, weight or flaps.
This is a weird bug.
A/P and VS should never behave this way.
It doesn’t always happen, but when it does it’s only during initial take off.
I’ll try to do some more research.
I never experienced this with the 777 and 787.
I’ve been flying the 739 a lot lately. I’ll switch to the 737 to see if I can replicate the issue.
@Jan does the problem still occur if you increase your climb out speed to 200 knots? I regularly fly the 737 and I’ve never seen this problem - my initial climb out rate is an increase to 210 knots at 3000fpm, flaps 5, and flaps retracted crossing 3000feet once I reach 200-210 knots
