    I have reviewed all the manuals but no mention of where the turn on autopilot button is! Also ,re-play mode dose not record all sound... Log.txt
  2. Im learning the ropes on the wonderfull TBM 900. On my last flight I was unable to engage the autopilot. Everything looks good (see screenshot), but the button for engaging the autopilot did not work. Any ideas of what I have missed? I have been following the tutorials, along with this amazing helpfull video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d42c6gq5YUc&t=128s
  3. Hello. I've been enjoying your product as well as reading about the future work on the VNAV and related systems. I've searched about this issue without getting any results. Sorry if it's a duplicated report. I've been noticing an unusual oscillation on the banking when the auto pilot encounters a open turn on the flight path given the route characteristics. The route flown is a SID from KLAS called BOACH SEVEN from runway 07L between BAKRR and MINEY. SID route: https://skyvector.com/files/tpp/1708/pdf/00662BOACH.PDF This behavior is also seen on different navigation paths that features such open turns. A recording follows in this link: I'd like to know if it's a normal behavior on the autopilot when encountering such turns transferring the blame onto the FMC plotting such turns incorrectly (I know it's unlikely, but I'm not a programmer) or is something like the AP is shifting between bank angles values to keep itself on the Nav Path. Appreciated your product. EDIT: Turbulence were absent.
  4. Hi, I'm lately struggling to understand how the 737 (NG and Classic) Autopilot behaves just after takeoff and what's the proper procedure to follow to get a smooth transition to flaps UP speed. The scenery is this: MCP SPD set to V2, HDG mode selected to follow rwy heading, A/T armed, both FDs on, TO/GA engaged. 80knts, V1, rotate... For the IXEG I've observed that prior to TRA (throtte reduction altitude) after FMA announcing throttle ARM, if you push the CMD button then FLCH + N1 modes are automatically engaged. Ok, easy, but is that correct? I read that if no vertical or lateral modes are selected, the A/P should maintain attitude and bank angle. PPRuNe source: "When the A/P is engaged and proper mode selection is not made, AP will switch CWS ROLL,CWS PITCH mode and flashing amber CWS PITCH,CWS ROLL announciaitons on FMA will come on and ask you to give proper roll and pitch modes". Link:http://www.pprune.org/tech-log/115253-737-autopilot-when-engaging.html So the correct sequence would be for example: at TRA push N1 (or it gets automatically engaged), then select one lateral mode (say LNAV), one vertical mode (say FL CH) and last hit CMD. Correct? Maybe @Litjan can help me here. Thanks!! Cris
  5. Hi, no clue if it's a bug or not - I already searched here but I did not find sthg. Scenario: LOWI LOC/DME East 26 VOR LOC 111.1/255° and GS established, descending with the glide to 3700 (Single Channel) Now the the visual runway 08 -> Heading preselected for the left turn Now I clicked HDG SEL but nothing happens. APP stays active. The same for ALT HLD. The only way was to disable the AP completely and continue hand flying (more fun, but that was unexpected :)) Tried a second time, same result. Am I doing sthg wrong? Cheers, Till
  6. Hey Guys, I am very new to Xplane, and new to this whole simulator. I am starting to learn all the basics of aircraft, and autopilot, ATC stuffs, etc. However, to learn all the good autopilot stuffs, I may need a bit bigger plane than Cessna one. Is there any good started freeware aircraft which I can play with to learn all these stuffs first ? I do not want to fly A380 as I find that extremely difficult to land. Any suggestions from the experienced Xplane flyers would really help.
  7. A newbie question again. How do I turn off the annoying chirping and flashing [AP] on the EFIS when I disengage the auto-pilot? It goes until I turn off the battery. JAR's a320 has a button that silences the warning. Thanks, Brad
  8. Mitsubishi MU-2 64 bit upgrade. The pitch function seems to me to be reversed. Normally ( in other aircraft ) when in AP and Vertical Speed selected the pitch control can be used to adjust the amount of vertical speed you want. In this aircraft the pitch only works when VS is 'not' selected. You have to start your ascent or descent and try to hit the VS button at just the right time to grab the speed you want. It doesn't seem right to me. Most other aircraft, even smaller ones then this one, the VS and pitch function together and can be fine tuned as needed without having to deselect VS make an adjustment and 'try' to grab it on the way by. Great job on the upgrade. I think you are crazy too not to charge 'something' for all your work. This was not just a patch but a major upgrade. I don't think most reasonable people would mind paying a fee . running XP10.21r2 on a Mac OS10.8.4

    V1.2 Autopilot

    Hello. I have a problem engaging the autopilot. If i start with the engines running, autopilot works fine. But if i start per the tutorial, i cannot get the autopilot to engage... AND YES the yaw dampeners are engaged (lights out). Is there a certain sequence of button presses that i need to be aware of? By the way ... the CRJ200 is BY FAR the best plane I have in X-plane. Any thought of doing a 737???? thanks! Pat.
