As I said earlier a jet climb is speed driven, not VSI driven. If you
touch
the VSI it overrides the speed you dial in as, at higher levels, the
aircraft cannot maintain both a set speed and climb rate. Leave the VSI
alone and let the speed determine the climb rate.

As nobody else has problems with this aircraft I suspect you have
probably adopted a flying technique that is not correct for the
aircraft. It may be best to revue your flying procedures against the
tutorials or lessons as you may be doing something fundamentally wrong
on the aircraft.

Jets are far more complex to fly and you need to be aware of how
systems work, fuel load, weight and balance, trim settings and the
need for precise speed management. You also have to know the systems
better and that things like fans (bleed air)  can reduce engine thrust
quite a bit. Print out the 747 check lists and go through them
thoroughly on each flight. It's best if
you know exactly what each item does so you know what impact each has on
the
flight.

Have tried a number of trim settings.

Find that an auto takeoff is the smoothest, but will have some more
tries, much prefer the manual way to get off the deck.

Yesterday, got a smooth takeoff, and stepped climb/speed to FL400, and
it was stable for 10 minutes, I thought, oh joy, I had cracked it.

Today, tried online,(KJFK-EGLL) and coupled to FSC, got to FL380, took
my eyes off the screen for a minute, turned back, and there I was,
heading for a swim. Managed to get it off the water, and away again,
then passing through FL200, it happened again, I wonder what is
triggering the failure, it happens too fast to recover before hitting
the deck. In real life, I would expect to have plenty of time to
stabalise from FL400.

And yet I was following the same procedure, easing up the speed as I
was climbing, even the angle of attack was no higher than 10 degrees
throughout,

I was keeping the VSI below 1500 and was dropping it to 1000.

The rated M0.85 incidently, keeps the throttle full open all the time,
not good for the fuel calcs.

I will crack it one day, hopefully not too distant future.

The A380, comes with the ABACUS FMC, think I will see if I can plumb
it
into

the Boeings, should just be a matter of pointing the config file to
the
GAU.
