auto pilot problem

Recommended Posts

I recently got the latest beta 8, since then I can no longer use the auto pilot, I get a message " the directional gyro is not aligned with magnetic North" when I set the heading bug to the desired heading it flys in a totally different direction then the heading set, never seen this before in all the previous versions of x-plane including the last version I used 11.05. 

any help would be greatly appreciated, 

 

Thanks

swk1959,

 

I too have that problem, although I just click out of it and I am able to use my AP along the way..Which plane(s) are you having problems with?

the vskylabs dc 3 , and the caranado b 200 and 208.  I've searched the forums at the org and at the developers blog and not been able to find anything. Can't find a way to "sync" the gyro to magnetic north either.

 

Thanks for the reply if you discover anything please drop me a line

To align the gyro, you can assign a button or key to the command sim/instruments/DG_sync_mag
