Default Autopilot Damper on/off?

Greetings Earthlings


Has anyone had any luck playing with the damper? I know the key combo is LAlt+1, but all it does is press the upper left button of the 6 autopilot buttons. The light on the button stays on, and nothing happens, the plane doesn't handle any differently. Autopilot Reset has no effect either.

I haven't had any luck pulling Cobras in the MiG, and figured the damper is the culprit, but I can't seem to turn it off
Any ideas? Is this a feature to be implemented in the future, or am I ignoring/forgetting something?

Hold L-ALT+9 (iirc) for 3 seconds. All the lights will go out and the warning will kick in.

It's no fun, trust me.

Woohoo, thanks so much! I was figuring it was something like that right after I posted the message

Is it on or off by default?

why L-ALT+9 instead of LAlt+1, and what is the name of the keybinding command?

Go to your settings and press L-Alt + 9 and you will find out how it is called

Hello again,

When one engages:

"stick deflection limiter" (key Y)
"Reset / DAMPER disable" (keys LAlt + 9, for more than 3 secs.)

I can't quite understand what exactly happens in therms of:

- pitch ;
- Angle of Atack limits ;
- instantaneous turn-rate.

edit:

Is the "Y" function for the MIG-29, the same as the "S" for the Su-27 ?

Open the controls indicator (RCTRL-ENTER) and watch what happens when you pull the stick right back - you'll see the plane pushing back against the stick. Disabling the deflection limiter turns this off.
