how to disable some features of the autopilot.

Postby jeff55 » Fri Nov 02, 2012 3:48 pm

Hello all,

sometime (or months) ago, I red a message describing how to disable the "fly by wire" available on the Airbus and other airplanes. Can someone tell me where to find such information, Each time I try to fly the A 321, it end by a crash because this plane can only be piloted by the autopilot, and it bother me a lot.

Another question, on the previous version of the FS (FS 2004) it was possible to disable the banking lock when the autopilot is on. The sintax was something like (in the aircraft.cfg) : Autobank on or off.

is it possible with FSX ?

Thank in advance,

For your second question, yes it's the same as FS2004 for both bank and pitch.

default_bank_mode= This determines the default bank mode when the autopilot logic is turned on.
0 = None
1 = Wing Level Hold
2 = Heading Hold (current heading).
If no value is set, Wing Level Hold will be the default.

default_pitch_mode= This determines the default pitch mode when the autopilot logic is turned on.
0 = None
1 = Pitch Hold (current pitch angle)
2 = Altitude Hold (current altitude)
If no value is set, Pitch Hold will be the default.

or-

use_no_default_pitch=

At that time [1909] the chief engineer was almost always the chief test pilot as well. That had the fortunate result of eliminating poor engineering early in aviation.
