Recommended Posts

A/c not holding straight & level flight when AFC engaged within all parameters. It wanders off to starboard (right) a few seconds after being engaged. ...any ideas how to resolve this?

IMHO these autopilot systems should be with virtual deadzone. So all possible joystick jittery etc is countered with 20% deadzone and slight moves. As joystick is not same thing as physical stick in cockpit.

That's exactly what I thought yesterday. I don't want to have a large deadzone for hand flying, but during AP operation, all the small center movements of the normal desktop joysticks should not interfere. Don't have the problem in F-18, F-16 or Mirage (I know, these are FBW) using the same small deadzone of 4.
