Yaw Damper

Recommended Posts

Hi gang, is there a workaround to get the yaw damper to work independently of the autopilot?

 Since downloading the new flight dynamics, I can't get the YD to engage until the AP is engaged, and then they both pop off at the same time when AP is disengaged.

I'd like to set the YD on initial climb when hand flying to keep the people in the back from puking on the way out of KEGE. 🙂

Thanks for any answers/help.

R U sure it did work before? The new FDE doesn't (and can't) change anything in this regard.

Have a look in your panel.59\CustomPC12 folder.

There should be an ASandYD.xml file.

Open it with Notepad..

You will see:

<!-- Turn off YD if AP disconnected via Yoke Button -->
 
  (A:Autopilot Master,bool) ! (A:AUTOPILOT YAW DAMPER,bool) and if{
   (>K:YAW_DAMPER_TOGGLE)
   0 (>L:AP CONNECT,bool) }

If you do not like that, change it to

<!-- Turn off YD if AP disconnected via Yoke Button
 
  (A:Autopilot Master,bool) ! (A:AUTOPILOT YAW DAMPER,bool) and if{
   (>K:YAW_DAMPER_TOGGLE)
   0 (>L:AP CONNECT,bool) }  -->

and that section is disabled.

Thanks, Bert! I'll give it a try! 🙂
