Auto Pilot Bank Control

Recommended Posts

In all of my previous versions of MFS, I was able to engage the auto pilot and only use the ALT hold, while still maintaining aileron control. That way during longer flights I can still have some input while at the same time, not having to worry about my ALT. In order to make this happen in my older versions of MFS, I had to add a line to the aircraft.cfg file under the auto pilot section. I think the line was "USE NO DEFAULT BANK=1" This would would allow me to turn off the wing LVL yet still keep my altitude hold. How can I recreate this in MFS X. I hope this made sense...ThanksLarry Johnson

Larry,As noted in the SDK for FSX, the previous method is still supported - I continue to use it but the "preferred" method is:default_bank_mode: (This determines the default bank mode when the autopilot logic is turned on.) If no value is set, Wing Level Hold will be the default.0 = None 1 = Wing Level Hold2 = Heading Hold (current heading).so set default_bank_mode=0Loyd

>I use this method.>Add these lines to aircraft.cfg file under Autopilot Section.>use_no_default_pitch=1 >use_no_default_bank=1As mentioned above though, this syntax is depecrated. Although it "still works," it will likely not be supported at all in future versions.
