Elevator trim problem

Recommended Posts

I have a curious problem which I can't solve.  When flying with all radios and autopilot powered on, every time I use the elevator trim button the autopilot automatically goes to autopilot control.  I have searched everywhere to see how they are connected but with no luck.  I was flying the A2A C182 but I believe this happens with most planes.  I am using PFC Yoke and control console.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Have a look in the keyboard assignments and perhaps change the button? Z is usually the autopilot master. Elevator trims are usually num pad 7 (down) num pad 1 (up).

Hi Mark,

 

I forgot to mention I am using a PFC yoke and control console so am not using the keyboard.  I did check the keyboard assignments and found no connection.

Thanks for your thoughts.
