!! Windows 7 no longer supported !!

As Microsoft will stop supporting Windows 7 on Jan 20th we will be unable to test any of our
products on that platform. It may work, or it may not, but no guarantees from our side.

Autopilot Not Working Correctly

Recommended Posts

Haven't flown the CRJ in a while, but when I got my new throttle quadrant, I decided to upgrade to the professional model. (The navigraph integrated EFB was just too good to resist.) The poor climb performance and cruise speeds I remember were fixed for me, but now my autopilot is on the fritz. Follows the plan for a while and switching from heading hold to nav and back doesn't break it at first. Was just doing a test flight, however, when the plane stopped following the flight director when turning to intercept the localizer. This had happened on a previous vatsim flight when I tried to head direct to a waypoint after getting vectors and the aircraft just started turning to the right and wouldn't stop until I disengaged the autopilot and started flying manually.

I second this.

 

Especially in NAV/FMS mode the AFSC fails to follow the flight director frequently.

 

Second issue that I have seen is although you get a green GS indicating a glideslope capture the aircraft routinely goes lower then the GS never attempting to reintercept it as well as the flight director continues to drive you at about 3 degrees downward.
