Made this one the other day but never posted it.. I did an autoland, but being as I was

using FSrecorder, I can't turn on the A/P when rendering the video, or the trim has a hissy

fit with the very slow render speed. It will then eventually clanketty clack away until it's out

of range, and then the A/P will kick off. So I render it with the A/P off.. Which is a bummer as

you can't see all the winky blinky stuff on the PFD when I do an autoland. :p


With that plane, it's my top of the line 900 BBJ, and it is loaded with all the extras. So it has

the integrated backup, and is fail operational autoland with roll out guidance.

28 knot crosswind with gusts to 32.. But it didn't feel too gusty.. You can see the crab angle

on the HUD. The triangle at the top center is where the nose is pointing. As far as guidance,

the smaller of the two circles is where I want to go, and where the larger circle sits is where

I'm headed with the current path. You want the little circle to fit inside the bigger one for a

perfect path, which it does being all A/P flown. Watch the roll out guidance kick the rudder

over when I touch down. It was on A/P and steering itself down the runway until after I went

to the exterior view. I mention this for the ones that aren't too familiar with the HGS system..

I think the real world plane would transition out of the crab a bit more right before touchdown,

but that's how the NGX does it. I bet that beats the snot out of the tires. lol.. :D


It's the only 737 plane I run that has all that.. Most all the other ones I fly use analog backups,

fail passive autoland, etc. And most of the time I don't do autolands..

Never when playing Southwest buoy. They land cat III by hand using the HGS.

BTW, I think the wind might actually be over the limits to do this approach as an autoland in the

real world, but I'm not sure as I was too lazy to look it up. :rolleyes:

But in the sim, it had no trouble with the 28 knot crosswind.


edit.. I had it backwards as far as the circles.. The little one is where I want

to go, and the big one should fit over it for a perfect path.


This is a whole flight start to finish.. One end of town to the other.. :pilot:

Enjoyed the vid! Your pc handles the 737 very well.

I've been pretty happy with it so far. It's an i7 4790 and am still only using the

on board intel HD 4600 video. 8 GB of ram.. The ram is 1866, but I'm running it at

1600 as it actually seemed better at the lower clock. Might need to do some more

testing as far as ram settings.

Going to Win 7 64 with this recent build made as much difference as the new CPU,

as far as the density of scenery I can run vs the Phenom II and 32 bit OS I was

running. Being a non K 4790, it's locked, so can't OC.. Lately I've been running all

cores at a constant 3.8 ghz rather than letting it throttle the speed. Seems to run

FSX the best that way.
