Dash 7 Autopilot

Recommended Posts

Hi all, It just occured to me that I can only change the altitude in the new Dash 7 by increments of 1,000'. All my other aircraft can be changed at 100' increments. Is it only me?Best, Rob

Hi,Are you referring to the one made by Milton Shupe & the Dash7 Team? If so, I think I have the solution. I made the throttle gauges for this aircraft, basically a 4-engine version of my ATR throttle gauge. My ATR has the same problem, which also affects to the HDG and CRS selection. The cause seems to be some kind of bug existing in FS2002 which affects panels with gauges that simulate key commands to accomplish their functions (like my throttle gauge), but it only appears on certain setups and situations. For example, I never had the problem under W98, but since I upgraded to XP, I get it at random. To cure it, download and install latest FSUIPC (www.schiratti.com/dowson) and activate the option "Fix control acceleration" in the "Technical" section. Peter Dowson has provided a more clear explanation of this bug in his FSUIPC documentation.Hope this helpssailplane.jpgStultorum numerus infinitus est.

HI there,I can't seem to install Milton's Dash 7. When I unzip and extract to the FS2002 folder the download creates another FS2002 folder. Any help in installing the program would be grateful. Sure would like to get it airborne. Thanks for any assistance.Larry

Hi Alex,Just unzip the archive to one level higher than the FS2002 folder, and everything will fall into place. So, for example, if FS2002 was in the root of the C drive, unzip to c:.
