I am interested in bying the Arrow, maybe the III/IV-Bundle. The descripion says autopilot is simple and does not provide vertical navigation. But I see a knop with ALT-option.
Maybe in real world maintaining the altitude is easy, but in simulation I will not be happy with a plane which doesn't have at least the altitude hold mode. Does the Arrow support alt hold?
Thanks for answer. Regards, Norbert
(page 67 in the manual) ... "As you approach 4,000ft, place your mouse cursor over the navigation/approach coupler knob and press the middle button on your mouse (this is often integrated into the mouse-wheel). Alternatively, you can use the default key assignment – [Ctrl]+[Z].This toggles altitude hold mode. The autopilot will capture and hold the current altitude (rounded to the nearest hundred feet). A tooltip indicates whether altitude hold mode is engaged.
... The real-life Piper AutoControl IIIB doesn’t feature altitude hold mode but it has been included for convenience".
