I'm stumped on how to select a frequency on either Nav2 & Comm2 and how to select the altitude in the AP, without just hovering the mouse over the readout,am I missing somethings? DP1

Try getting rid of the standby frequencies for Comm 2 and Nav 2 in the radio section of the aircraft cfg.

>Try getting rid of the standby frequencies for Comm 2 and Nav>2 in the radio section of the aircraft cfg.What exactly do I need to change in the radio section? Sorry, I am no cfg expert.[Radios]// Radio Type = availiable, standby frequency, has glide slopeAudio.1=1 Com.1=1, 1 Com.2=1, 1 Nav.1=1, 1, 1 Nav.2=1, 1, 0 Adf.1=1 Transponder.1=1 Marker.1=1

EdThank you that edit worked.Frank155Edit the comm2 & nav2 lines. Replace the second 1's with zeros. Note all other lines remain untouchedBefore you do anything backup your unchanged aircraft.cfg file so you can return to original if you need to.

Has anyone got any ideas about the auto pilot altitude selection?

"Has anyone got any ideas about the auto pilot altitude selection"I've had no problem with that. Can't remember if I clicked/wheeled the knob or the numbers but it worked fine and took me to 11,500 at the prescribed rate, it stopped asceneding and then held the altitude.Either way all this stuff will be fixed in a week or two. Better they wait a bit until they get all the feedback rather than issuing Update1......Update2......Update3 .......Update 3.1a.b2..... Ignore all previous updates and just use SP4. I hate that and some developers are real bad for not getting things right the first,second, third...................................etc.

Carenado's patch has addressed the radio edit discussed above & a trim gauge. They were fast to fine tune this great aircraft. I'm still wondering how the auto pilot altitude selection is supposed to work? My observations are;1. Using the Up/Down buttons will adjust vertical rate to suit & will work by itself with the AP "on" (no other buttons engaged).2. The Altitude can be adjusted by hovering the mouse over the numbers & using the mouse wheel (hardly realistic, but it will work). I would have thought Carenado would have supplied a knob or button to adjust altitude, if altitude is suposed to be adjusted.3. Use the Up/Down buttons to climb or descend at a set rate then, with altitude at zero, then bring the climb or descent to zero will level the aircraft.I'm not sure if the AP is suposed to emulate a full two axis AP or some sort of limited AP? Has anyone got any ideas?DP1

Hi, there's another thread about the carenado mooney and it seems that only a single axis autopilot is modeled just like in the real plane.

I believe with the exception of having to use the up/down bottons to set your rate of climb/desent, the autopilot works the same as the default Cessna.Tom

I'd LOVE to do that mod on mine, except putting the RXP GNS 530 in there in place of the Simflyers one. But I have the rest of the stuff in your picture--the RXP FLT/FLN, and the Friendly Panels radios (which, IMO, are one of the most underrated inexpensive addons out there). I know the night-lighting won't work correctly with the landing lights on, but for that functionality, I don't care! :)Lewis "Moose" GregoryDurham, North Carolina

And you cannot beat the price! ;)
