Profile mode problem

Hello everyone

The iniBuils planes are fantastic planes in my opinion. So I suspect that the fault is mine, that I have a problem with the Profile mode.

Am I correct in assuming that FL and SPD are managed by the system with Profile mode (as with Boeing VNAV)? If so, the adjustment of the FL does not work for me in profile mode. To start the descent, I activate LVL/CH. After this step I reactivate the profile mode. In this mode, however, the rate of descent is much too low to reach the FL of the next waypoints according to the FMC. So I have to keep a "nosedive" for the longest time after triggering LVL/CH, in order to then with luck (or V/S control) reach the calculated FL at next waypoints, so that I can then reactivate the Profile mode.

Can anyone help me with this? I would be happy about it. And sorry if my post was a little long.

Regards

There is no profile on departure. (VNAV). Only on the descent. 

When approaching your TOD, pull the knob with your lower altitude set in the FCU. You will see P.DES in blue on your PFD. This means its armed. When you reach your TOD, it should start the descent automatically.

Alternatively toggling PROFILE when you approaching that point also initiates the descent.

Thank you very much for the very quick feedback. Once more: know how.

The iniBuilds planes are very complex and the handling is a bit special for (presumably) many X-Plane users. I've been watching videos for hours and still come across a puzzle over and over again. I am sure that you would be spared a lot of forum work if a tutorial flight was made available to users as a PDF.

Regards
