F-35 autopilot issue

Recommended Posts

I recently installed Dino Cattaneo's wonderful F-35 mod. However, I am having an issue.  When trying a flight with autopilot & auto-throttle engaged,

the a/c immediately goes into a very high pitch climb, which always results in a stall unless ap & auto-throttle are disengaged, even with afterburner in use. Example : autopilot & auto-throttle are set to 12000' ( with 1500'/min. climb), & 250 Kts. set on climb-out from airport. This should be a no-brainer for the F-35.

Has anyone else had this problem or know how to fix? Really need help with this, so any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx.

Not so sure as why the OP said F-35 mod.  The "Mod" on that page refers to the payware F-35 and mod was for P3D.

OP hasn't specified his Sim.

There's also a version for FSX.

OK, and also for the payware model. I don't think trying and comparing freeware to the payware will be the same.  I had the free one a year, or so, ago and it performed as expected.

Sorry I didn't get back sooner. I have the freeware version for FSX.

I didn't know there was any difference. I thought they were the same product?

Again, if anyone has a fix, I'd appreciate it.

I will download and give it a try!  Just to be sure, you aren't engaging A/T and A/P while still on the runway?

A, B, or C model?

I did a test flight in the A model.  I had some oscillation during climb because I forgot to rest the altimeter, but after that it smoothed out in the climb to 12,000 feet at 250knots.  Engage A/P and A/T after takeoff and flaps up and keep in mind that this fighter does not need 100% full power for takeoff.   You can far exceed the 250 knots before engaging A/T.  I think I used about 75% thrust and engaged everything right after wheels and flaps up,
