The 777-200ER’s Nose Drop

So I’m getting ready for a flight tonight from DFW-HNL with the 777-200ER. I decided to do some practice takeoffs with the current winds at the airport. I would rotate at around 150 and had 81% on the throttle. I would keep a steady climb of 2800 VS and the second I switched on the AP the aircraft’s nose wanted to drop to about 2000 VS for about four seconds before coming back up. Can anyone help me?

Does anyone know the solution to this problem

This is happening on other aircraft as well. Seems to me ever since the hotfix.

Ok I see. Thanks for the info!

Ok no worries it just seems awfully unrealistic and very annoying

Maybe the altitude on AP wasn’t the same as your manual climb? (Preset)

Are you talking about the initial altitude usually set at the gate?

Such as FL190 as an example

I can send a video of what is happening

No normally before I request pushback I set the SPD and ALT and set AP just short of ALT (normally like at 4 or 5,000 FT for a FL 10,000)
