Anyone else having autopilot disengagement issues? AP keeps disconnecting on its own...

 

Thanks,


Update: Disconnected my CH Product Pedals and the AP isn't disengaging anymore, time to dig into FSUIPC possibly?

Thanks,

What does the FMA indicate when the A/P disconnects?

I was having the issue. I believe it happens if the plane is not trimmed or your touching the yoke. I believe there is an option to turn off the yoke disengage. Only did one flight so far.

i had the same problem, i thought i was trimmed and definitely not touching my stick but it maybe is really sensitive or something??

 

i went to the options to disable this:

menu->setup->pmdg options->simulation->next page(2/10)->ctl input with AP on

 

that seemed to work like a charm. i'm using just an ancient logitech 3d pro maybe it is unstable and putting spurious pitch inputs in. also have fsuipc 4.96

 

cheers

I should point out that this post is in the 747 forum, so not everyone here is going to have the 737.

If it's across planes, that means it isn't a 'fix' type of issue for us, really. The common element is your actions and/or your hardware. Ensure that you do not have a hardware trim axis set, and if you do, ensure that you have cleared your trim axis (set it to neutral) before engaging the AP. Additionally, you will want to check your null zones to ensure the hardware isn't sending any erroneous signals.
