|One-Eleven Panel Manual|
The autopilot is a separate window from the main panel. It is toggled on/off by the toggle button marked 'AP'
On the real aircraft the AP panel is positioned in the middle of the pedestal.
Please note : The 1-11 autopilot is not the same as a standard FS autopilot & will therefore not work correctly by using the keyboard commands for the standard FS autopilot. You need to mouse click the switches on this AP unit for it to function correctly.
The Autopilot for the 1-11 510ED is a different unit & is explained separately below.
switches are clicked 'Forward' to turn on.
1 : AP MASTER SWITCH
Master On/Off button for autopilot functions. (Also operates the Autopilot Engage switch on the model.)
The flight director can still use the NAV modes if the autopilot is off.
3 : DOWN/UP
This control only works in 'MAN' mode & with 'ALT' OFF.
The 'DOWN/UP' wheels can be used in Manual mode to provide a gradual & smooth pitch control. Each click gives around 100 ft/min in vertical speed, up to a maximum of 4000 ft/min.
The DOWN/UP control does not automatically adjust the tailplane (elevator/pitch) trim setting. If the trim is not in balance before MAN mode is engaged, it can drastically affect the changes in vertical speed given by this control.
If the DOWN/UP control appears not to work, adjust tailplane trim until it does.
It is not advisable to use the 'DOWN/UP' control during a turn. Always use altitude hold instead during a turn.
4 : TURN
This control only works in 'MAN' mode
The 'TURN' knob can be used in Manual mode to provide a very gradual & smooth turn. Each click gives around two degrees of bank, up to a maximum of 30 degrees.
5 : DAMPER
Switch down for Yaw damper only. Autopilot will disengage.
6 : ALT
When selected, this will hold the current altitude.
