787-8 Navigation Issues  

Postby Pancho » Wed Jul 22, 2020 7:59 pm

Am I the only one having navigation issues with the B787-8? For some reason it can't follow the route in some instances.
I'll try to make a video to document this problem.
Also it's given me problems with the Glideslope at landing.
Thank you

Here's the video, the plane misses a waypoint and then goes in circles

I'm giving up on this plane, too many bugs !!

That's because the aircraft is not turning tight enough

And don't try to manually turn tight, instead, if you passed a waypoint, use the route manager to "Jump To" the next, such as in the video, you can Jump to APP-4 instead of having it circle back for APP-5 again.
