View Full Version : PMDG 747-400 wig wag after landing

I am sure I have seen the solution to this problem somewhere but, sorry, I can't remember where!
After landing the PMDG 747-400 and taxiing to the end of the runway, the a/c wants to ' wig wag' instead of obeying my turn commands.
Can any pilot please advise the solution ?

Have you turned the a/p off?

Thanks for your input, Ian.
Encase any other pilot has this problem........I have found the official explanation which qualifies what you have said...
"After performing an autoland you must disconnect the autopilot after slowing down. The PMDG 747 uses the runway's localizer signal to hold the centerline while in ROLLOUT mode. Due to an MSFS limitation, this signal can become eratic further down the runway. The result is that the plane starts pulling to whichever side it thinks it needs to go to to continue following the signal. Once you disengage the AP either by pulling the command bar out or by pressing the yoke switch, the plane should steer normally on the ground".
