It is not possible to engage autopilot in the f-14 as dcs has a stupid annoying problem where when trimming the ffb stick stays to a linear path not matching the curve. The f-14 assumes that you are moving the stick out of limits for the autopilot and will not engage

I just tried to fly the f-14 and had no ffb in the pitch, there was slight effect from roll but that's it

It looks like that if you fly in one aircraft before the f14 it will mess up the ffb profile

Now we just need to get rid of the double trim effect. When FFB is in use shifting the stick center, the trim should not set the controls position at the same time as well which is the method of trim without FFB. At the moment, we FFB users have both at the same time, doubling the effective trim and halving it's precision.

Enabling AP now works with with my G940. Thanks a lot Heatblur and kudos for support ancient technology from the 90s!


However, there seems to be an issue: If I enable AP (Attitude hold) and I want to override the AP to set a new attitude the manual says to just push over the force, set the new attitude and relase the stick.


This seems to be borked in DCS.



Example: I'm in a 1000 fpm climb and enable AP (attitude hold). I let go of the stick and the AP keeps my climb. So far so good. I now want to change from my climb to a 2000 fpm decent. When I push forward on the stick it seems as if I'm fighting the AP. The airplane tries to maintain the climb. This goes as far as I'm hitting the limit of my controller (full defelection forward) and I'm still in a climb. When I then let go of the stick the aircraft pitches up massively as if the was full aft trim. The cockpit indicator does not show any changes on pit ch trim though.


My current workaround is to disable AP, set the new attiutde manually and then reenable AP. The downside of this is, that any other AP modes (alt hold, ground track) are disabled with the main AP switch.
