Autopilot and CWS modes

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Why when autopilot is switched on both CWS yellow signs light up on PFD and yellow autopilot button is blinking?

And solution to this?

 

I admit I was playing with key control assignments, however I reverted back to vanilla. Problem remained.

Set up a flight. Take off. Unplug hardware and try to engage the AP. If it works, it's your hardware.

I will give it a try. Strange as I'm using the same joystick since 2009 and always used it with pmdg which I own since release on fsx - now p3d.

Not entirely. Pots degrade over time. If they're sending spikes to your computer, it's seeing that you're trying to make full (or near full) control deflections for fractions of a second. That will kick the AP off, or prevent it from activating.
