    Posted: October-18-2015 at 10:09am
Hi J-P,
 
    I am having trouble trying to set up flying a star into Flightbeam KSFO in the PMDG 777 in P3D V3. The plane appears to be moved to the location but the trimming of the aircraft never completes despite the log showing that the aircraft has been released for flight.
    Runway selected is 19-L and STAR is ALWYS1 with INYOE transition and DYAMD waypoint (Airac 1511). Oddly the FMC Approach Ref is showing the expected runway to be LFMN04L and is showing a 'RW/ILS FREQ ERROR'.
 
     Any ideas?
 
     Regards,
               Neil

Hi Neil,
 
Do you use ActiveSky Next as WX source?
 
If yes, this could be a local QNH problem, try to press B key at the beginning of the trimming phase to set your altimeter correctly, the aircraft will then stabilize.
 
If the aircraft is flying in trimming phase but not giving you controls, try to press your brakes for a few seconds, FSiPanel should give you the control.
 
Cheers,

Hi J-P,
 
      No I am not using ASN for this situation, although I do for normal flight.
 
      Pressing B has no effect nor does pressing the brakes - the plane remains locked in the trimming phase with the same symptoms already stated.
 
      Regards,
               Neil

Hi Neil,
 
I have just tried the same situation and can confirm that I have the same behavior.
The aircraft was stuck at 198kts, trying to increase the IAS to the required 220kts.
 
The problem is probably due to the high altitude of the STAR Waypoint (27000ft), could you try a STAR with a waypoint at or below 10000feet.
 
I'm abroad now for a few days and won't be able to troubleshoot this case until a week, I have put it in my TODO list.
 
Thanks for finding this issue, I have as well to see if it is P3D V3 related or if the same applied to V2.
 
I will keep you updated here of the findings and corrections.
 
Cheers,
 
J-P

Hi J-P,
 
     I tried a couple more waypoints at 8,000 & 12,000ft into 28-R and for these I did get control back but still with the FMC problem of the runway showing as LFMN04L with a 'RW/ILS FREQ ERROR'.
      I also tried KDEN 34-R at 19,000 with the same result - got control back but same runway error.
 
      Cheers,
               Neil

Hi Neil,

FSiPanel doesn't set the FMC, I have made a quick video showing how to fly a STAR with the 777 with FMC set-up.

    OK Thanks. I wasn't aware it didn't set up the FMC.

Hi Neil,
 
I've made a quick fix for the STAR above 18000ft which were giving a speed problem on the 777.
Please download the hotfix below and report back if working please.
Please note that this is not an installer, just replace FSiPanel.exe with the new one below.
 
 
Cheers,

Hi J-P,

Hi, what do you mean by system blocked?
Do you use ASN as weather source?
 
If yes, LFKJ maybe doesn't have a METAR, FSiPanel therefore doesn't know the local barometric setting set by ASN.
 
When the aircraft is trimming, hit your B key to set the correct QNH.
 
Is the aircraft still blocked?
 
Cheers,
