a) I put on VOR1 the radial I desire and in HDI I change my bearing to intersect the radial and to get the needle centered and THEN, and just THEN I put the automatic pilot.
or b) I activate the AP (with NAV active) and leave that AP make all the word of changing bearing in order to get the needle centered (= intersect the radial and follow it).
What should be done? Thank you.

TURN OFF THE FREAKIN' AUTOPILOT ALREADY!!!!
You want to learn to fly? OK then - LEARN TO FLY.
The Autopilot is there for experienced pilots to reduce their workload in the cockpit. Nothing more. If you haven't the skills to navigate a craft from A to B without the autopilot; you have no business being behind the yoke. That's the benefit of MFS; you have the opportunity to train without complication.
Learn how to fly FIRST. THEN learn how to use the autopilot. Your skills will thank you.

PhantomTweak wrote:Absolutely agree with you! Having said that, even the 172 has an autopilot. Me, I just keep the AP in most planes for the yaw Damper effect, other than that I don't use it on any aircraft.
Just me, that's all
