Hi,

Yes you can enable the autopilot
make sure you turn on the main autopilot switch first than your alt.have not tried heading
though.

Yo Bandit ----

The autopilot functions, while one of those things not well documented (standard MS quality documentation) work well !!! .. at least the ones I have programmed into my keys. Was real handy on a flight from Johnston Atoll to Hawaii the other night LOL !!!

Have Fun ===== :-) === BB

Salute Irish !!! ---

Go into the setup screens and select the controller (keyboard) assignments function. When you bring this up, you will see a long listing of all the functions which can be assigned to keys, etc. Go down the list to the autopilot functions (there are about 6 or 7 of them ?) and assign those which you would like to use, to keys....I use the number keys 1 thru 3 for my selections with key 1 assigned to the "autopilot master switch toggle"...I use the other two keys for altitude hold and azimuth hold.

Good Luck --- It works ---- :-) ---- BB

That's a big thanks from me too!!!! While you're at it do you know how to abandon a ditched plane yet without jumping before you hit the deck?

Cheers
