I know this is pilot error since no one else has reported this yet. I followed the tutorial to enable the Gyro pilot, however the heading drifts (mostly towards the co-pilot -- starboard) during a flight. My altitude remains rock-solid, so I figure I have part of it (Gyro pilot) enabled correctly. Few things to nte I set the "bypass valves" to their default setting of 3 I trim the aircraft to fly straight and level before enabling the gyro-pilot I enabled the two levers by my seat: Right one first to pressurize the system (wait for pressures to stabilize) Left one to enable GP The plane stays straight for a while, then begins to drift. Is there anything I am doing wrong? I have 1.62 installed in MSFS (latest build / updates) running on Win 10 professional Thanks for any help
I've seen some posts regarding the gyropilot, hope this information helps clarify functionality and operability. As it currently stands, the PILOT'S B-314 for MSFS has a basic Gyropilot functionality already implemented, you just need to follow the correct procedure for it to operate correctly. If you are in the left-hand Captain's seat, you need to pressurize the Gyropilot servos by moving the small white lever forward: Once the Gyropilot servos have been pressurized, you will see that the Gyropilot pressure gauges showing this too: Now you can move to the left side, click on the armrest to make the Gyropilot master switch visible, it should show as being disengaged: Clicking on that switch will move it forward and the Gyropilot will now be engaged and active: With the Gyropilot being engaged, the altitude and heading at the time of engagement will be held. We plan to add more Gyropilot functionality in the future, in its present implementation it offers altitude and heading hold. Just as with the real B-314, if the Gyropilot servos are not pressurized, then the Gyropilot master switch will not activate any altitude and heading hold. The Gyropilot servos being pressurized is a prerequisite for altitude and heading hold to be functional via the Gyropilot master switch. Jerome
