Another worth-while tip for the Sim Pilot...
If you find that the previous user has left the Autopilot to "on" (or even "off") during his/her flight.....when you disengage it before flight, don't forget to re-trim the aircraft manually; pitch and rudder, and set the "Altitude" to a safe height, and "Vertical Speed" to a safe setting on the radios, otherwise, when you engage it during flight it will catch you by surprise and the aircraft might not do what you expect it to do, and you will find yourself frantically trying to reset all the cruise settings before the aircraft nose-dives into the ground, or changes course rapidly!
...and don't forget the (HSI) Horizontal Situation Indicator tuning Bug/Knob setting for the desired direction!
Check ALL the the Radio "flight settings" before take-off!
So many things to catch out the unwary!
