Elevator control following A/P disconnect

Recommended Posts

Hello Pete


Well after your lesson in word definition and delta values I now know fully what you mean and after a few tweaks I'm happy with the results.


I do however have one more question for you.


On approach, just after glideslope capture, A/P disconnected, descending nicely, a short time after following the F/D cue the aircraft nose dives.


Is this anything to do with calibration?


Thank you

I'll answer seeing as Pete is away for a few days


If you fly straight and level, trim the aircraft properly and have no wind, let go of the controls ie no autopilot - what happens?


You don't have an assignment for your throttle also assigned to elevator? I had this once so as i was reducing/increasing throttle the nose pitched down/up too!
