Suddenly the elevator axis is moving the altitude knob on Autopilot.

 

Uinstalled the CRj and nothing is programmed on the Honeycomb Alpha; unless the elevator.

 

Something wrong. But 110% secure; nothing is mapped on the Alpha axis than the elevator axis.

 

Please help.

 

Only an Issue in the CRJ - never happens to other aircrafts.

I am sorry, but even though you are 110% sure, this simply has to be a double assignment. If there would be a bug we would have seen hundreds of very upset customers.

 

If you are sure it is, just start with a 100% empty profile and start to assign axis and buttons.

Dear Sir,

 

The elevator is an axis.
The altitude knob must be controlled by a ON/OFF contact.
-----> There are very few chances for the elevator to DIRECTLY drive the altitude knob.

 

Can you please make three tests : 
- 1 - Make a search on axis in the controller configuration to show the functions assigned to the elevator axis.

- 2 - Mage a search on the PA altitude  setting function in the controller configuration to show the buttons or any trigger assigned to it.

- 3 - Go in the Windows Joystick utility and see if, by chance, the movment ot the elevator axis would not trigger some "ghost" input that would 

         control the PA altitude  setting. (Just move the yoke and look for inputs to illuminate

 

I suppoes you are not using any third party software such as Spad.Next or AxesAndOhs ?

 

Best regards.

Dear Carl,

 

This might be the case. AxisAndOhs can work on L-Vars (Internal variables of and addon)
And there are different L-Vars to visually move a button on the dashborad and to actually change the value that buttons is controlling.

The problem you seem to have (Button moving with sound - altitude not changing) could be related to some L-vars being addressed, from within AxisAndOhs.


Do you use AxisAndOhs? And if yes, do you know exactly what script or data-addressing it does ?

 

Best regards.

Hi Carl,

 

I think you opened another similar post to wich I just answered.


There must be someting in AAO.
Can you please create and activate a blank configuration setup in AAO and check if the issue still happens ?

 

Best regards.

Dear Carl,

 

This is weird... 

Can you please confirm that the problem doesn't arise when you

remove AAO from the community folder ?

Then, could you close MSFS, uninstall AAO, start MSFS, close it, reboot the

computer and reinstall AAO, if possible from a fresh download ?

 

Thank you.

Also, you may want to check that nowhere in AAO or in any other 3rd-party utility, 
a reference to ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_SEL or ASCRJ_FCP_ALT_CHANGE is made.

These are the L-Vars related to the autopilot altitude rotating know (NOT the wheel)

 

Thank you.

Another point, if you haven't yet uninstalled AAO, can you please go in the "Connection" menu 

and click "Disconnect" ?
There sould not be any reference to the loaded plane on the main AAO screen.
It should just say "Connect to Simulator"

 

Thank you.

Dear Carl,

Thank you for this feedback.
This is strabnge however, as uninstalling it via the Windows Apps configuration panel should also

have removed any cache files related to AAO.

However it now works, that is the most important.

 

Have fun flights.
