    MCP390d Beta AutoPilot and Altitude Hold Button

    I tryed the Beta AutoPilot in latest build 390d.

    I noticed that when in climb with V/S or LevelChange by pushing the
    Altitude
    hold the aircraft was falling in a descent overshooting the altitude for
    hold until the crash into the sea or the ground.

    In No Beta mode was working fine.

    In both BetaOn or Off modes the light in Alt Hold was not up and after the
    alt hold, when i want to "return" back to climb mode i couldnot press the
    LevelChange button, or speed, until i first push one more time the AltHold
    to de-activate it and then to select a new mode. I think that is possible
    in
    737-700 to push a new button for a new mode so it cancel the previous and
    the new was active.


    So, Enrico, the Beta at this point has a possible problem.
    Both Beta and not have a problem with button's led for on and for
    requesting
    a second push for de-active the alt hold.

    regards

    Hi,

    I know, just ignore the beta setting for the time being... will check the
    rest.

    Ciao
