Can I make planes follow strictly gps path line?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello. I hope you understand what I'm trying to say.

When fsx planes are guided by default gps they follow the path line but sometimes they go past the line and reincorporate later. Can I make them follow the path reducing that space? (no worries about bank angle) thank you!

Are you talking about following the magenta line for lateral navigation?

Yeah, I hope there's something I can do in the aircraft.cfg to make it follow that line without getting too far from it. Thank you

Winds can deviate the aircraft from the desired path, at least temporarily, I believe.

Also default GPS/autopilot is not always precise, especially in turns.

I think you want the autopilot to be more precise about following the GPS NAV, this might be possible by tweaking the autopilot PID values. I don't know how to do it and as far as I know there is little to no documentation. You might try the values mentioned here: https://www.flightsim.com/vbfs/showthread.php?298656-Is-there-a-way-to-edit-autopilot&p=1977007#post1977007
