    Bank Limit

    Hi, everyone.

    I'm playing with the Bank Limit within the MCP. I've discovered that by
    changing the Bank Limit, it changes what the Flight Director commands during

    turns, but it doesn't appear to impact the way the A/P turns. I'm learning,

    then, that the A/P doesn't

    Hi, everyone.

    changing the Bank Limit, it changes what the Flight Director commands during

    turns, but it doesn't appear to impact the way the A/P turns. I'm learning,

    then, that the A/P doesn't use the F/D as its command.

    Anyone else notice anything relating to this?

    Warm regards,
    David

    I think the bank limit was added to work with the new Beta A/P mode, but
    that, because there are so many problems with it at present Enrico has disabled
    it. Check the "changes" text file for the MCP.

    The current/original A/P in the MCP makes use of some FS A/P functions and FS
    doesn't have a dynamic bank limit adjustment.

    Regards,

    Pete
