Problem with Overland MD11

Today, I took the Overland MD11 for a test flight. However, when I began my descent at 25,000 feet, the nose seemed to be at about 5 degrees nose up????!!!!

And when I decreased speed to about 190 knots at 10,000 feet it started to stall and the speed dropped dramatically.

I know that my AP was on so the problem couldn't have been that.

Does anyone have this problem - if so please share ❗

Anyone know what the problem is?

5 degrees nose up isn't an unusual pitch up attitude for descending if you are lowering your speed at the same time and are particularly heavy i.e. full fuel.
Either lower your fuel or increase your speed to just below cruising speed for your descent.

I'm not sure why you would be stalling at 190kts - the stall speed shouldn't be that high, unless you were extremely heavy and were trying to maintain 10,000 feet - try the flight again with lower fuel levels.

Ok thanks for the reply Jon - I will try with less fuel 😉
