Hi -

most likely due to your joystick sending input in the pitch or roll axis. Try to increase the "dead zone" for the joystick in the IXEG (left side pop-out) preferences menu.

Just like in the real aircraft, the autopilot will disconnect (or not even engage) if the pilot moves the yoke. Sometimes older joysticks are also sending "spikes", erroneous signals, once in a while that can cause this. Increasing the null zone in the IXEG menu can make the autopilot more tolerant for this.

Cheers, Jan

Right where I wrote it is. (The slider is called "Joystick CWS deadzone" and it is in the "Miscelleanous" field of the Preferences).

Cheers, Jan

That is weird - it should only have an effect on the way the autopilot behaves in the IXEG 737. Make sure you don´t change the joystick setting in the default X-Plane joystick menu - only in the IXEG preferences menu that comes up when you bump your mouse on the left side of the screen.
