autopilot FeelThere E135/145XR NAV Not Selecting
PolarAviation posted a topic in AirplanesHi, Whenever I select the NAV button, it arms both the HDG and NAV at the same time. If I try to deselect HDG so only NAV is selected, it disconnects them both. From what I tried, there is no way for me to get the NAV selected without the HDG turning on at the same time, making my FMS route unflyable. I could not find any information about this in the manual or on other forums- so I've decided to create one. My simulator is P3Dv4.5. Is this a bug or an actual aircraft feature? Thanks, Noah
FS2020 FSUIPC7 Offset for LVLCHG (level change) ??
hermann posted a topic in FSUIPC7 MSFSHello from Austria! Please help me: I use an autopilot hardware from Opencockpits with a script some years old. Now in FS2020 there are some standard planes (eg. Cessna 172, Citation etc.) where LVLCHG is possible. But I cannot find an offset for it. Can you help me please? Thanks in advance and best regards Hermann
Just tried the SP1 with E190, I noticed the Throttle are changing way too fast than pitch, when initiating an FLCH climb or descend. It pushes airspeed about 15kts higher than command speed when starting a climb, or 20kts lower when starting descent. After a while, the pitch follow up and eliminate the difference, keep on speed throughout the remining FLCH phase. EDIT: I just noticed it's due to CG error, see below.
Saitek Cessna Trim Wheel & Autopilot LUA
jschr posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHi Pete, this is about the problem of the misalignment of the Saitek trim wheel when disengaging the autopilot. As soon as you move the trim wheel the airplane bounces up or down related to the absolute position of the trim wheel. That is well known to all users of a trim wheel and really miserable. I found in a X-Plane forum an idea which leads imho to a really handy and reasonable workaround to avoid that problem: i wrote a lua to deal with the problem. what it does: in AP mode the trim wheel disconnect from the trim axis in non AP mode the trim wheel connects. in most cases the trim wheel will be physically in the wrong pos in relation to the ac trim axis, so if you move the wheel and he is out of sync, you get a display on the left side of your screen. red if out of sync, green when in sync. both values are visible so you can move the wheel to the correct ac setting. only then the wheel axis connects to the ac trim axis and you can use it. its possible you have to alter some settings due to different screen res. For me this would be a great solution to get rid of the trim wheel problem. Is it possible to realize that in FSX using a LUA? And at least a question to the community: is there anybody who is able to write that LUA and would like to do that? Thanks for your support, Juergen

Programming Buttons and Switches
Braudoux posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHi, I am running a registered copy of version 4.90 :razz:. I am trying to program my FSX through FSUIPC. After downloading multiple tutorials and user guides, I could succeed in many assignements but I'm now facing some situation that I am unable to find an explanation for :oops:. 1. In Buttons and Switches, it is pretty clear except the role and "way to use" the Parameter option associated to a FS Control button. 2.. While assigning to my Thrustmaster MFD Cougar the control "Heading Bug Inc" and "Heading Bug Dec", the steps are by 10 degrees. How to adjust to 1 degree when [button pressed] and more when [repeat while held] ? 3. The same question raises for Altitude and Speed Inc / Dec ? 4. What is the control to assign the Course Inc/Dec function ? 5. For Pushback I could find the control. But I would like to assign the Left and Right Pushback as well... What is the control ? An additional question related to the flap control assignement: I strictly followed the guide to set the 7 detents of my E-175 Feelthere but when it runs, the flaps lever jumps from 1 to full and return to 4 and 5... Is there a reliable and accurate user guide explaining the adjustment "for Dummies" ? I know that all my questions may appear simple to you, but few days of Web investigation and multiple reading made me turning quite crazy... Merci in advance and congratulations for your work and your availability to assist guys like me. Bruno
Gabriel Gbz posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesHello First of all I'm not a programmer. So here we go: I'm riding a homemade panel for use in various aircraft in FSX with the help of FSUIPC. I intend to use potentiometers to control the AP courses and selecting altitudes. However, I can not program at the PMDG 737NGX the FSUIPC. When I turn the potentiometers either way it only increases or only decreases. He wanted to increase when turned sideways and impaire when rotated to the other side. It was programmed by the FSUIPC mouse macro. FSUIPC Version: 4.70 OBS.: As I said, I'm no programmer, but if I explain how it works I can devote to programming. Sorry for my english, translate with the help of Google Translate. Portuguese version: Olá. Primeiro de tudo eu não sou programador. Então vamos lá: Estou montando um painel caseiro, para usar em diversas aeronaves no FSX com a ajuda do FSUIPC. Pretendo usar potenciômetros para controlar o AP selecionando altitudes e cursos. Porém, não consigo programar pelo FSUIPC o 737NGX da PMDG. Quando eu giro o potenciômetro para qualquer lado ele só aumenta ou só diminui. Queria que aumentasse quando girasse para um lado e diminuisse quando girado para o outro lado. Foi programado pelo mouse macro do FSUIPC. Versão do FSUIPC: 4.70 OBS.: Como já dito, não sou programador, mas se me explicarem como funciona posso me dedicar à programação. Desculpe pelo meu inglês, traduzi com a ajuda do Google Translate.
