Outstanding work Simon!

I finally had a chance to test the new FDM and it feels really incredible to fly!!! I received a Thrustmaster Cougar flight stick and HOTAS, so I was able to test the C172 old and new FDM using that, and performed a number of great landings. One problem I noticed is the nose wheel steering seems to pull to the right during taxi/takeoff/landing, but that might be my configuration, I am not sure.

Again, awesome work, keep it up!  8)

Best regards,
Uriah George

Yes but the V key, or any key for that matter doesn't have to be exclusive to one task... So what we have here is it turning on the auto pilot wing leveller.

Imagine flying a plane with a rear gunner,  you want to jump into the gunners seat take control of the guns and not control the pilots joystick and ensure that the plane doesn't go spiraling into the ground but fly level... That's what we're aiming for here.

We just need to convince cameni that simple is best.

Well My plane flys straight and level now, ignoring all left/right joystick input, and I have no idea how to de-activate the autopilot.  =|

press the v key...

Which is what I thought. But for me, the plane stays locked and uncontrollable. :-/

Joystick. An Xbox pad. The planes control yoke correctly and visibly turns. The plane does not. The keyboard works fine.

Eh. I decided to punt, and am using the FDM with the enhanced sounds. That seems to have resolved the issue for now.

I have disabled the wing level auto-pilot in the .js of this one (didn't noticed it was possible to set it on/off with v):

Code: [Select]
//var wing_lvl_ap;
//this.fdm["ap/autopilot-roll-on"]=wing_lvl_ap;

You can remove the // if you want to use the autopilot.
