Autopilot could some fine tuning

ps sorry for my poor english

 No problem at all.

more the delta between the current speed and the target speed is small less the vertical speed will change.

And I'm no developer, but yes I think that would work. Thanks for taking a look at it! :)

Right, thanks for putting it more clearly than I could. I started to try and think about what blahhh was describing and from his prospective, as a developer, building an algorithm, just confusing myself more :huh:

 

The autopilot always reacts the same. It always wants to get to near level flight to capture whatever new target speed you set, weather it is in a climb or a descent. If the amount of speed change is small, it does result in a smaller pitch change by the autopilot, but only because, as Propane says, it doesn't have a chance to get to near level, before it has to pitch back again to maintain the new bugged speed. Not because the autopilot reacts differently to the small change. 

 

The autopilot can also be manipulated into making smaller pitch corrections, by the crew, by how quickly or slowly they make power and/or speed bug changes. Twisting in the speed slowly, or adding power slowly, it still reacts the same, but your manipulating it, by causing it not to have a chance to get to near level. 

 

Basically, when in speed mode, if the bug moves, or if airspeed changes due to power settings, the autopilot always reacts the same and wants to get to near level, just sometimes it doesn't get the chance to get there, before capturing the new bugged speed.

Just wanted to re-iterate that I can confirm this behavior in the 1.0.0.5c build and it is not very realistic. I will try to remember to make a video tomorrow during climbout for reference perhaps.

what was the gw and n1 ? Also I noticed the climb rate was a little bit too enthusiastic on an ultra-light flight xD
