Hi everyone,
I use MobiFlight to interface my self-made cockpit panel, but I encountered a problem during the ILS procedure.
I'm flying with this autopilot conditions:
- HDG activated
- ALT activated
- NAV1 tuned to ILS frequency
When the approach button is active and the system finds the ILS frequency, HDG is disabled correctly; but when ALT should be disabled to follow the path of descent, this does not happen.
If instead I perform the same procedures without MobiFlight, the procedure is performed correctly.
You can see the problem, in this video here -> https://youtu.be/PSlocfdi4-4

Thank you very much in advance, who can advise me how to solve this issue.

N.B. FSX sp2 and default aircraft

Hi

Witch command do you use here for the Input of APPR Button.

Looks like that is wrong !

65724 65806 / 65812 Maby try the other one you still use.
Good Luck !

Hi Again

Check this....
iconQuote:


07FC --- 4 Byte --- Autopilot GlideSlope hold
N.B. setting this also sets 0800, approach hold. To clear both you
need to write 0 to them in the same FSUIPC process call, as if
they are separated by an FS frame, an interlock stops them
clearing.


0800 --- 4 Byte --- Autopilot Approach hold.
See the note above, for offset 07FC.

0804 --- 4 Byte --- Autopilot Back course hold.
The note for offset 07FC may also apply here.



To Fix your Problem....
Try Offset 0800 instead of 07FC with same Size, Typ and Inpu Value.
Maby this already work.

If NOT

Please change input Typ from FSUIPC Offset to EventID and use Event 65724 -Parameter 0
This should work normaly 100% and is the standard Solution.
I personaly recommend to work with EventID instead of Offsets if available.... But thats only my opinion !
Good Luck !
