Autopilot Issues

Recommended Posts

Hello All --- well, still struggling with the AP, mainly the pitch controls. Went back to the Cheyenne II to check it out and see the same thing there. So here we are on the Cheyenne III and having a hard time. Is it me, or am I missing something in working with this AP. The system is working fine with lateral nav on the GTN750. Any help much appreciated.

Cheers,  Bob

EDIT: I did learn that the altitude/VS control on the panel does have primary control over flight pitch during active AP and it appears to be functioning OK. The issue now remains about flight pitch during manual piloting mode, When I get back to flying the Cheyenne III will check it out, As reported by others, the radar altimeter is not functioning, Any comments about pitch control during manual mode appreciated,  Thanks!!!  :biggrin:

The only way I can work pitch is to select an altitude in the display, press arm, and use the lower half of the black rocker knob thingy with my mouse wheel to dial vertical speed.  Another way actually now that I think about it - press ALT AP console, then redial your altitude you want in the altitude alerter, press ARM, then change vertical speed with the lower half of the black knob

Hi Ryan --- thanks for the feedback. Yep, that is pretty much how it looks. I did some more tinkering with it and at least have it working :biggrin:

Everything else seems pretty good. I have not tried any ILS approaches yet, manual or automatic but that is next, Nice looking plane as always,

Thanks Again.

That's the way it's supposed to work, isn't it?
