Astonishing how everything FSX becomes easy to solve and wonderful for you the moment someone sees a problem - but how everything FG is irredeemably bad the moment you see a problem.

Astonishing how you consider an ortho-image mode a solution for FSX deficiencies but neglect that FG has an OSGEarth fork which provides the same functionality.

One really wonders - what is your agenda?

How can I enable or use OSGEarth ? I would like to try it. But if I have correct information, this FG branch was abandoned 4 years ago and had many unsolved troubles.

Gear up with flaps 40 and speed brake extended , weird
Seeing the stick shaker speed ( low) , you must be pushing hard on the yoke :)

No stick shaker on Vref, engines in idle as You can see, I had trouble maintain steep descent profile. Without full flaps and extended speedbrake FMC cried that descent path is unachievable. Only aural alarm on non landing config.

You Should use gear down then ( when you go beyond flaps 10 ) and no speedbrake after flaps 15 .
I was talking about stick shaker speed ( 95 kt ) , not vref

You are right, but with flaps 10 and extended speedbrake is impossible to maintain steep descent profile after RTT, where I need altitude 15000 or above. This procedure is in FMC, AIRAC 2019-05.

That’s why you have to take the gear down .
Level change at 155 kts, gear down and f40 gives you almost a 6 degree path angle
