Rudder & Autopilot?


Recommended Posts

Hello Pete

This might not be the right place for this topic but hopefully you'll have the answer!

 

After calibrating all the controls I was testing in FS to make sure all worked ok and noticed in flight with the A/P engaged, moving the rudder pedals

caused the rudder to move. Am I right in thinking this shouldn't happen whilst in A/P mode?

 

Thank you

 

Regards

Hi,

 

Autopilot doesn't control the rudder, it is the Yaw Damper that does. If the Aircraft's Autopilot you use doesn't support have a Yaw Damper then it is uncontrolled.

But in any case also with Yaw Damper ON you will be able to overwrite the rudder with you rudder input but not fully, just damped.
