C-118/DC-6 Engage/Disengage Autooilot during flight

Recommended Posts

Are there any tricks to re-engaging the autopilot during flight if fo some reason, it becomes disengaged?  I can move the servo lever but the autopilot switch seems inop.  Could this is because the AC might not be in level and straight flight?

Turn the servo and a/p switch off.  Make sure the wings are level and the turn knob is centered then reengage.  If the turn knob is not centered the a/p will not engage.
