Please correct me if I make any mistakes, but IAS autopilot mode does not seem to work with me.
TMS is in SYNC 1 mode, I engage IAS when approaching 220kts and the autopilot just flies through it up and beyond max speed. Only VS mode seems to work to manage the climb.
Please get in touch with the support team so they can collect further information to identify the cause - https://support.justflight.com/support/tickets/new

Try to hand over to IAS in a well trimmed state and try to reduce climb power a few %N1 below takeoff power.
I got the impression with IAS the V/S gets limited to around 3000fpm and any excess power is put into speed then. With the above mentioned climb power reduction you can dampen this a bit.
Currently it I somewhat unclear how to set climb power, with the TGT/Sync it doesn't really work, as the temperatures are too low. 780C would be somewhere above takeoff power. So I just guesstimate the climb power around 5-6 %N1 below takeoff power. At least for me the IAS Mode keeps it below 250kt then.
Other than syncing the engines TMS in Sync1 mode does nothing for climb power setting. It just copies your actual N1 to the TMS display

I just noticed, IAS Mode has definitely been improved in 1.06!

@Mikealpha and now FD doesn't want to work with IAS. Autopilot is ok, but FD shows to drop nose down.
There's been no changes to the FD logic but we'll investigate.
