Autopilot switches to ROLL when overflying VOR



  • When overflying a VOR in NAV/OMNI mode (following the inbound radial), the autopilot silently switches to ROLL mode as soon as the VOR signal is lost, keeping the current bank angle.

    Even when the VOR signal is received again after overfly, the autopilot remains in the ROLL mode despite all the switches and knobs still are in NAV/OMNI mode.

    The change to ROLL is a default behavior of MSFS but it is NOT the way Autocontrol IIIB behaves. Once receiving the signal from the VOR, it should continue following the (now outbound) radial.

    That's just a heads-up, I'll try to open a ticket (or add this to the list of my open issues since Support wants to have just one ticket opened for all issues with the addon per customer).

    since Support wants to have just one ticket opened for all issues with the addon per customer).

    Just to clarify for any other users reading, if you have four or five issues that you find are affecting one product it is probably easier if you stick them on one ticket, rather than raising five separate ones.

    Likewise, if you have a problem on one day and another problem some days later, please feel free to raise another ticket. We may well 'merge' them to make it easier to track, but that will, of course, depend on the subject matter etc.

    No rules - as the song goes, just do what you feel - we will 🙂



  • Sure thing, wilco 🙂

    This'll be fixed in the next update.
