It's not really an autopilot. It's a "dampener", just like in the Ka-50, but the Ka-50 has a real autopilot as well.
Why would you give yourself pain and grief and fly without it? There is no point though its perfectly doable, not even hard if you practice a little.

It’s actually an advanced SAS ( stability augmentation system ) which is technically an autopilot.

Doesn’t have nowadays superior modes ( NAV, APPRO, VS etc .. ) doesn’t mean it’s not an AP.

Properly used, it can hold current heading and altitude, and even altering it.

Manual is very well made and a very detailed chapter explains ithe AP34B four channels AP, good reading
