Arrow ap hdg hold
Anyone having this issue when heading is selected the plane enters a steep left turn even if the heading bug is set to a rift turn intercept? V3 installed any ideas?
@Bills2013gt What heading mode are you in?
Regular heading hold off of the DG heading bug
It may not apply to you but I've achieved this exact thing several times whilst trying to guess the correct events and variables to use with Flight-Tracker-StreamDeck.
I suspect its less to do with Flight-Tracker-StreamDeck and more to do with external interactions with MSFS leaving the PA-28R ARROW III in an unexpected / untested state.
In general, heading hold works well for me, but I did have this issue once recently, and I'm pretty sure what went wrong, but not how to solve it properly:
I had to stop a flight while in the air, so I returned to the menu of the sim by pressing Esc.
The next time I started a flight (on the ground), the plane got back to it's "current" configuration because I have State Saving turned on, which meant that the autopilot was on. I noticed this because my ailerons were fully deflected to the right. Once I turned off the autopilot, the ailerons returned to neutral, and I though all was good...
Once in the air, I wanted to turn on the AP with heading hold. But no matter what I did, it immediately deflected hard right. I tried a few things, but no matter what I did, I couldn't get the AP to act properly. I ended up a bit frustrated, left the AP on, which sent the plane into a spin and crash....
Next time I started the plane on the ground, all was good.
Short story: In my case, I'm pretty sure it was related to the aborted flight, where the AP was on, and then State Saving not quite properly working in that case.
Should be added that I have the Saitek multipanel. When flying the Piper, I only use the AP on/off switch, nothing else. Normally, this works just fine. When I had the issue, I tried using the cockpit switches only, but this didn't change anything
