Altitude and Heading


Recommended Posts

Pete -- I am a registered user of FSUIPC 3.65 and need your advice re a button assignment. I am using CH controls.

On the ATR 72-500 autopilot control panel there are +/- buttons for changing the target heading bug and altitude. I would love to assign these items to buttons on my CH Throttle that would repeat when held down. I tried to assign to Heading Bug Incr / Decr Fast but it didn't work. Any suggestions?

Same question re altitude. Thanks for your help.

Regards

Dave

Assign them and test them on a default aircraft. If they work there, you have succeeded. If they then don't on a third party aircraft it is likely that they have replaced FS's A/P with their own and not bothered to support the same controls. I'm afraid in that case you will have to check their documentation to see if they have any alternatives other than the mouse, such as keyboard shortcuts.

Regards,

Pete
