Hi Guys, 

 

I am extremely familiar with the airbus family having flown it for as long as i can remeber but recently i have found a problem that i cant seem to solve. 

I am using the thrustmaster TCA throttle and stick and when i set MCT FLX the aircraft only annunciates SRS and autothrottle does not arm. 

All of my FMA readouts are correct prior to departure eg. V-speeds, CLB, Nav, 1FD2 , Initial climb and flex value

Once i depart i can arm autothrottle and it will arm no problem and give you the Man FLX readout on the pfd. 

Can someone help please. 

 

Thanks

Sounds like your TCA detent isn’t matching up with the cockpit detent. I’m not sure how to do it, but a recalibration of the detents, or at least the FLX/MCT detent is in order.

I have just spawned in here try to and display an example. 

As you can see, both throttles are in the correct detent but the Autothrottle isnt arming.

Oh I see, yeah, no MAN FLX. Hmmm, I’m trying to think what would cause this. Is the A/THR button on before going to FLX?
