Autopilot?

No, not for the Rotax example.

I could tell you why, but it has been covered in the forums and if you want you can search for it, but it won't change its absence being correct.

What I do hope is that it will be an option in the C-1 Eclipse, which is sometimes found with an a/p.

In the meantime, you can always use the autopilot =1 change in the aircraft .cfg and use standard commands for a/p functionality. Again, I can't help thinking we've already dealt with this. Did you use the search function?

Well, it can be done because I've done it, but I removed the AP pretty soon because it takes the fun away imho... I looked in my archives if I could find how I did it (it was a popup only AP) but I apparently disliked it so much that I even deleted all information on how I did it... Sorry!

What you could try is edit the aircraft.cfg and turn on the AP:

autopilot_available=1

and then you should be able to at least use the AP using the keyboard shortcuts for it... I think. If you want the popup, you have to dig into a panel.cfg of another plane and look for some usefull AP entries...

EDIT

Snave was a few seconds earlier with the same advice, I see... ;)

EDIT 2

And of course Snave was right: a simple search and here you are: http://forum.aerosof...dding-autopilot

However, I think Snave gives good advice in that topic:

Rather than faffing about with all that palaver and possibly creating a problem later on with updates or patches, limit the changes to the aircraft .cfg to

autopilot_available=1

and use the default FSX key combinations for heading hold and altitude hold.

More than adequate for a comfort break and unlikely to cause a conflict.

Just to revisit this for the benefit of simmers here.

The idiots at Avsswim did not `solve` the first problem.

They masked it.

They did not resolve the second issue.

They bypassed it.

They also provide incorrect information: My name is included in every single post, so no hiding here, my Profile is complete and my alias is obviously my surname, reversed (surely only a real dumbarse could miss that!)

And finally: in most of J van E's posts over here, he received a reply - and one that actually attempted to resolve the issues - faster then he did `over there`.

So peeps, please do seek your help in a non-specific forum.

Just be aware of the quality of it.

In this case one piece of advice could cause a crash of FSX - yes one those crashes, and now of course J van E has an utterly non-standard Katana X setup, ruling out future assistance in these forums as putting non-standard modification on top of incompetently set up PC is hardly going to assist in effective troubleshooting.

(Could also mention the discrepancy about supposedly being banned from their forum when I have over - well let's say `many` - topics and content over there. As recently as - well, shall we say very recently....) :hi2_s:

But I won't.

Is it even realistic to include one?

Even if it's not has anyone created a simple autopilot...? I'd love a 2 axis for those long haul flights, or when my baby needs attention lol

[autopilot]

autopilot_available=1

flight_director_available=0

default_vertical_speed=700.0

autothrottle_available=0

pitch_takeoff_ga=8.0

max_pitch=10.0

max_pitch_acceleration=1.0

max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt=2.0

max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt=1.5

max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt_breakpoint=20000.0

max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt_breakpoint=28000.0

max_bank=25.0

max_bank_acceleration=1.8

max_bank_velocity=3.00

max_throttle_rate=0.10

nav_proportional_control=9.00

nav_integrator_control=0.25

nav_derivative_control=0.00

nav_integrator_boundary=2.50

nav_derivative_boundary=0.00

gs_proportional_control=9.52

gs_integrator_control=0.26

gs_derivative_control=0.00

gs_integrator_boundary=0.70

gs_derivative_boundary=0.00

yaw_damper_gain = 0.0

default_bank_mode=1

default_pitch_mode=2

the two added lines are the most important.. you can use now, the ctrl+Z, ctrl+H commands ->(otherwise it control the plane to the ground)

Wow! Thanks for that.

I looked up Bliksimpie.

And found absolutely nothing of any consequence. I wonder which says more..?
