Piper Meridean altitude settings

Recommended Posts

Having trouble with altitude settingAfter setting altitude and vertical speed ( In the main window above the turn coordinator)I am unable to get the aircaft to respond after the data switch has been activatedSo far I have tried turning the elavtor trim on and off and switching on the altitude hold mode In the Bendix( with the auto pilot switch on 1st and 2nd stages, etcThe only way I can achive altitude hold Is by switching on the altitude hold mode, which will successfully hold the aircraft at the altitude that I happen to flying atSo what am I doing wrong with the the settings from the main panel? any help would be appreciatedThanksBryan
