747-8 Auto Spoilers on landing

Unread post by mikeyjames »

First of all, I'm really grateful for the great models.

On the 747-8, and other 747 variants I've downloaded from here, the auto-spoilers do not deploy on landing. When I hit shift+/ the spoiler arm on the throttle quadrant moves as per the default FSX 747-400, which seems to suggest it's armed, but it does not deploy on landing. It only seems to work with the default 747-400. Any variation, even just using the 747-400 with a different livery results in non-deployment of the auto-spoilers on landing.

Is this a common issue or am I doing something wrong?

If it is an issue, is it something that could be easily fixed on my end?

Anyway, it's no big drama and if the worst situation is that I have to deploy the spoilers manually upon landing I think I'll live.

what is your vertical speed upon landing usually? any idea? I know sometimes they won't deploy if it's too soft a landing...or so I'm told. I've never had an issue with it....
