I totally rely on the Att Hold mode, for pretty much everything. I wonder if RL MiG-29 pilots use it constantly as well.

Side note: To me, it seems as if the MiG-29's AFCS system feels a lot more mature than its Su-27 counterpart in DCS. Do others feel the same?

Not sure it’s more refined. In making the “tutorial”, the attitude and baro altitude hold felt the same as the Flanker. Those are normally the only two modes I use, anyway. I may feel differently once the two missing modes are introduced.

Thank you so much for this video!!

Coming from the Sukhois, I was losing my mind as to why altitude hold wasn't working! Now I know I have to use attitude hold first!

Thank you for tutorial.
Is there anyone on this thread who uses the MSFFB2 joystick? AFCS MiG-29 does not work with it (maybe just for me). When AFCS is activated, for example, “[LAlt - 4] - Stabilization”, the stick starts to move in various directions, but does not stabilize the flight.
The same about other AFCS modes, maybe excluding the "Damper" mode, seems to work correctly (I don't know how to check it). Can anybody help?
