Auto Pilot Alarm
This aircraft is your best yet and certainly the best launch of a product. While I am sure that there are improvements yet to come, I have one request.
A big loud alarm when the A/P disengages by itself. Sometimes the co-pilot warns me and sometimes he misses it too.
Maybe the real one doesn't have a big loud alarm, but in the sim, I have a limited field of view and it is easy to miss the A/P going on strike.
Looking forward to whatever comes next in the development of this excellent product.
PS; It does lose rather a lot of altitude in a barrel roll.
@petesmiffy There is quite a loud and noticeable alarm when the AP disconnects, either by itself or from pilot input. If you can't hear it, go into MSFS sound settings and make sure all your volumes are up. If it's just too quiet, try decreasing all of the volumes except Master and Alarm sounds, and then increase your computer volume to compensate.
@n293wk Thaks, but it's not a consistent problem. Sometimes I get the alarm and sometimes I do not. I get plenty of other alarms. Possibly two or more events are overlapping? That's why I ask for a distinct and dedicated alarm.
You should see a red AP warning annunciator above the altimeter and standby AI when the autopilot is disconnected automatically, in addition to the continuous audible warning, and both should only stop once the AP DISC button on the yoke has been pressed or the autopilot has been re-engaged.
Do you not see that annunciator either?
@martyn Yes, I can see the warning, but only if I am looking at the warning panel. The alarm is the same volume as other warnings and the co-pilot only talks to me some of the time. I just landed at EDDK and the co-pilot made no calls, except to announce the capture of the Glide Slope.
This isn't a deal-breaker and as I am gaining experience on the aircraft it is becoming less of a problem. But I would still like my co-pilot to talk to me when he should.
