F-15C Autopilot still do not function correctly.


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

When ATTH + BALT is set even during level flight, aircraft  commence  slowly fly nose down. More and more.  Do not keep altitude at all.  Keeps but just 20 to 30 seconds, than begins to descent...

Speed is correct, throttle correct. No any inputs to HOTAS done... after AP engaged...

Can anybody fix it PLS ?

I do not use FFB.  X-52 modified/moded/deadzone 6 in DCS.

 

Track : https://drive.google.com/file/d/18zjP7RTQARN5RlM9qQH-C5lOI1fvCaHt/view?usp=sharing

 

As seen in track, AP do not keep Attitude to long.  Pitch and Bank changes.  After applying Altidute Hold, do not keep anything.

Function shortly jus if bank is less than 20 degs and very level flight before angaging Alt Hold is required.

Finally AP commence to change Attitude and Altitude without any stick input.

I have found the cause of AP malfunction.  Because manual trim is not disconnected after AP is applied.

Any manual trim input has an impact to aircraft behavior during AP applied. It should be disconnected.

If not, AP do not trim aircraft itself because manual trim override.

Each small stick input for pitch or bank sholud be countered by AP.  AP shoul reestablish pitch and bank itself. This not happens.

Yes, trim is still functional when you flip ATT and ALT hold switches (default S and A keys). You gotta trim it straight and level to engage autopilot and but you can still use trims with ATT and ALT toggled. Dunno how it functions IRL but I guess this is a mistake by devs.

You gotta trim her first and pitch and bank should be <5° in order to function. 

 

Also try pitch, roll and yaw hold, I can't remember default keys as I've customized my F-15C.diff.lua.

 

This is CAS, it's no classic "autopilot" you might think of, it won't put you on course to a next waypoint or steer between those.

Trim input should be disconnected when AP is applied. Otherwise AP will not be able to function properly. This is code issue.

I do not understand why responsible people do not read bug reports. Minor bugs but still...and annoying, realy long time...

Nope. Normally ATT Hold should keep any desired pitch and bank. After applying Alt Hold ( BALT). Plane should keep  bank and change pitch to fly level.
