Autopilot does not work

Recommended Posts

There are some things I don't like about the stability of this a/c and Carenado does not seem to do anything about it.

 

It is very difficult to get this plane stable, especially during climb. But the Autopilot is worse, it does not seem to work.

 

1. I clicked on the AP/FD switch until both AP and FD show as ON

2. I put the a/c on a climb to 6,000 feet and when I reach the cruise altitude I clicked on the AVSS ALT button, the LCD of the AVSS shows the ALT label.

 

Now, it is supposed to hold the altitude it had at the moment the button was pressed (6,000 ft) but it just keeps climbing and responding to the yoke if I choose to move it.

 

The VS also does not seem to work and is ambiguous in the sense that if it shows 6.8 you don't know if that is 6.8 ft/min or 680 ft/min or what. It also does not seem to respond to that either.

There are clickspots to remove the yokes .. if you want to (not shown in screenshot)..

 

Alt hold ok here , V/S changed from 700 ft/min to 900 ft/min (screenshots e.g.) and is displayed on the altitude tape (PFD) ... ok here .. and displays on the STEK55X.
