NO IDLE IN eMBRAER 170

Recommended Posts

My first question in this forum. I'm a new member. and hope that there are people who can help me.

I have no thrust idle. It's   23,6%  and to much. My plane is moving slowly but then slowly faster. Without parkbrake of course.

Is it possible to reduce this percentage. to 20-21% ? Also it's difficult to reduce my landingspeed because I still have  a litlle bit power.

2 miles before the field I set my throttle on "idle" then I can land with a speed of 140+. But then, the plane remains "hanging" to long before touchdown.

 

Anyone who can help me?

 

Jodocus.

Rolling at idle is normal for all planes ... especially if lighly loaded.  This is real world.

Also note that the 'ground' isn't well modeled so it is a mess programming correct idle thrust and flight thrust.

Ate use using the flaps on the correct schedule?  Never had issue slowing for approach/landing when the schedule and decent is correctly followed.

Scoobflight,

I filled up the fuel 100% and indead, no movement of the plane. So it's the weight of the plane.

Thanks for your explanation.
