Issue with FFX MD-80 and autopilot in FS2004

Recommended Posts

Guest DSN

Hello all,Does anyone have a problem using the autopilot with the FFX MD-80 in FS2004. If have alt hold on, when ever I turn it off, the plane pitches up violently. Could this be a compatability issue with FS2004? The plane works wonderfully in FS2002. I just copied from FS2002 to FS2004any thoughts?-DSN

Hmmm, here's my FS2004 FFX MD-80 aircraft.cfg file. Maybe you can find something that will help you in it.[fltsim.0]title=FlightFX/SGA MD80 Hawaiian Airlinessim=Super80model=panel=sound=texture=hakb_checklists=kb_reference=kb_notes=atc_id=N829HAatc_airline=Hawaiianatc_flight_number=89ui_manufacturer=McDonnell Douglasui_type=MD80ui_variation=Hawaiiandescription=DC-9-80.
