One thing you should check is the bug on the Airspeed indicator. If it is set at 80kts, that is all the autopilot will allow the helicopter to do. You can change this by pressing and holding the U key and tapping the - or + key to increase or decrease the bughttp://www.avsim.com/vfr_center/avsim_sig.jpg

Hello,I have worked all night at that problem (puh!)but it does not work. i can not go faster then 80 Kts with autopilot. The stick is a SpartaFighter Rockfire USB (the driver has some auto-kalibration thingy is that a problem?). I thinka listmember was a betatester for Antti? Couldhe please inform him about that? Thanks-regards, Hobbes

Hi,I don't mind E-mailing Antti for you, however, it would probably be easier for you, and Antti, to communicate directly, that way there will be less chances for errors in passing the info! His E-mail is at the bottom of the Manual. If you'd rather I'd contact Antti, drop me a line here, and I'll get on it.CheersAlun

Hello,Found it! It will not work with the auto-trims on.Funy- the manual says "The auto-trims should alwaysbe on during automated or assisted flight" so i havenot looked at that.May be it interact with the autocal. of the stick.The .gau is in C++ right?regards, Hobbes
