emb 170 family's nav sys very buggy?

Postby DTWFlyer » Sun Apr 08, 2018 2:17 am

hi all. was running a shuttle hop from cincinnati to detroit on a e175, enabled AP and nav, and plane just sorta gently wanders off course after reaching a new waypoint?

i know it's an old plane, but is there possibly a newer version w/o this? or is this just a bug?
turns are also REALLY exaggerated.

help appreciated for a noob flier. :lol:

I'm wondering if Omega didn't use magnetic heading instead of true or vice-versa?

Anyway, where did you download this aircraft from?
It sounds like the autopilot needs tuning, badly :)

if the craft has been modified "over there" and is different than the one in the official hanger, then you need to talk to those maintainers of that craft "over there" :arrow:

things like this can easily get worse with craft being wantonly split and forked all over the place :(
"You get more air close to the ground," said Angalo. "I read that in a book. You get lots of air low down, and not much when you go up."
"Why not?" said Gurder.
"Dunno. It's frightened of heights, I guess."
