Auto Pilot Engage/DisEngage Problem

Recommended Posts

I have a Logitech 3d Pro joystick and a Logitech gaming pad to control all my buttons.  Just installed the 35A and everything works off one of these two devises except for the AP.  When I press the Auto Pilot joystick button, I only get a brief flash from the AP Control Panel with no actual operation.  I can engage the AP with the mouse without a lot of problem, but when you're approaching 200' and a 1/2 mile minimum; getting ready to go around  it's a real inconvenience.  Never had this problem before. I checked the key list and it uses the plain old Z for AP on and off.  Any advice would be appreciated, Mike

I believe in the manual it said that you can't map the A/P to a joystick button. So I never tried after reading that section.

 

Hope this helps.

I use SPAD.neXt and have mapped the AP buttons to my Saitek Multi Panel and this is working good. The mapping is done using LVAR:s (supported by SPAD.neXt, along with simconnect and FSUIPC).

Problem is that SPAD.neXt does not support Logitech 3d Pro joystick and a Logitech gaming pad (as far as I know) so this does not solves your problem.

 

But if you can find a software which map the buttons to the correct LVAR you are able to control the AP in the Learjet 35A.
