Autopilot Trouble

Recommended Posts

Right now I am really PO. Each and every aircraft I BUY (notice I say buy) has a problem. Ok, so the autopilot is on. I'm at about 20,000 ft. The autopilot is ok but then all the sudden the stall warning comes on. My speed is about 280 knots and my vs is even like 800! The plane flips up and stalls even more I try to save it but whenever I let go it flies up like it needs me to ram the joystick into its base to get the dang thing level. After a while the autopilot tries to save itself but gets the same results, eventually my plane hits the ground at about 500 knots with the nose straight up! Oh man! I am so aggravated. It happens with each and every plane. Has anyone else has this problem? Can you fix it? Am I supposed to do something with the autopilot? Please help me. I havn't flown a flight since November because of this. It seems like the autopilot gives up.Bryce

Hi,I have experienced what you describe but as far as I know only with one autopilot which is home built propably something wrong with code , don't know why. It happens randomly, I am sorry that I don't have an solution to this but if you find out I'll appreciate if let me know.BrgdsEugen

If this happens with every plane you buy I strongly suspect pilot or user error. By that I mean you are either doing something wrong as pilot (e.g. not setting the a/p correctly) or as a user (e.g. have a configuration error somewhere).With so little information I am unable to offer any other help, other than to say I have only had the problem with one aircraft and that was user error because I was unfamiliar with the aircraft.
