Autopilot

Recommended Posts

For those who want to add autopilot in there plane. Just copy panel.cfg from other planes in the directory folder MSFS SimObjects Airplanes. The one that worked for me is the Boeing 747 panel. Others are not supported so far.

HI,

First of all, welcome to this forum and thanks for contributing your findings to the flightsim community.

That said:
I assume you mean with "MSFS" : FSX (original, Accell, or SteamEdition) .
Because you wrote your suggestion in this forum.
Unfortunately, the term "MSFS" is 'hyjacked" by the new Flightsim version released by Microsoft in 2020.
Not to offend anyone, just trying to avoid confusion.

Secondly (and again, to avoid confusion) copying the panel.cfg from one plane to another isn't a good idea.
What you probably ment to say: copy the Autopilot section of the panel.cfg of the B747 to the panel.cfg of other aircraft that doesn't have such an Autopilot. Right ??
(If such an Autopilot is realistic or not for another plane: whatever a flightsimmer prefers ...LoL).

Just want to add, that coping the Autopilot panel.cfg section of the B747 might not be enough.
Because a few lines in a.o. the [autopilot] section of the aircraft.cfg, also influences if/how those AP functions work ...

Like (examples):
autopilot_available= 
flight_director_available=  
autothrottle_available=
autothrottle_arming_required=
