I don't remember the default key bindings because I don't use the keyboard. But you need to press "Reset Autopilot" followed by "Reset Trim". At least that's what I do.

ok that is LShift-A plus whatever I used for reset trim (I have it on Ctrl + some joystick button). Will try asap, thanks!


P.S. there are some lights on the bottom left of the cockpit that light up when autopilot is on

Each one is a different autopilot function, but I don't know off the top of my head which is which. One that's on all the time is the pitch damper, you can turn this off as well but it requires holding "reset autopilot" for 3 seconds. One I think is just a generic "AP is on", then additional lights for what type e.g. roll hold, altitude hold etc.

I fly sidewinder. Alt hold can be tricky, I recommend finding a sweet spot I need speed where the gains work without causing oscillations. Easy to do even without AP since sidewinders can’t use curves or dead zones. In addition to bring in the right speed range I get best results when activating alt hold when I move already level and holding alt. Hope this helps. I really don’t want to have to save up for a brunner stick:’(

I've just gotten the Mig-29 module myself the last week and have been reading up, testing how the autopilot works, still confused a bit. Been reading through this thread and was wondering if anyone knows of a video or tutorial on how to use this aircraft feature?

Cap did a short autopilot tutorial for Su-27, Su-33, Mig-29 & Su-25 recently.



Note: IIRC, when I flew the Su-25T regularly - I used Altitude, Attitude, Autopilot OFF and Trim reset keybinds but kept away from the other modes.

Edit:

I found DevRim's English Cockpit particularly useful for checking which autopilot mod I was in when starting out, so you may want to try that.
