1/2 bank randomly activating during flight

It should turn on automatically when climbing through 31600 feet. (I don't know why they picked that)

I will have to double check but I'm pretty sure it turned on before that 

 

Please let us know. I did check it today and found it to be working as it should.

That's how the real plane does it. Blame Bombardier for the stupid number :P

Okay i found my issue. It does work like it should. But when turning the heading knob with the scroll wheel it is possible to hit the 1/2 bank switch. Maybe it would be good to disable scroll wheel for the buttons

Because they determined that you shouldn't be banking more than 15 degrees at that altitude or higher, unless you want to stall it...

Of course. But 31500 would have been fine. Or 31000. 31600 is random as hell.
