    Autopilot disconnect joystick command?

    Hi guys,

    In the drop down list for assigning joystick buttons, what is the Capt AP disconnect ref? I am looking but cannot see it? I have tried assiging the A key to a joystick button through FSUIPC but it doesn't work (A is the FCU focused AP disco as i understand)

    Any ideas as wouldbe simpler assiginig it to a button

    Cheers

    Doug

    Hi,

    Search for AP take over or AP TO. There is one for the CPT and one for the FO.
    The FCU "A" key commands the CPT APT TO.
    You can easily add the function to any joystick button in FMGS Config software. Make sure you assign both press and release events.

    Regards,
    JL
