Hi,
The time for more testing is apon us. In the next days I will release the IT-AUTOFLIGHT V3.0.0 RC3 version which will have MANY improvements, code cleanup, and changes. This version may or may not be the final release, if not bugs are found. The only missing thing from my plan for V3.0.0 is AUTO Bank Limit, which I have working on the A320s Custom ITAF, so I can port that rather easily. Also, I will fix G/S intercepting, and a few other minor bugs.

The ITAF-GA Version V1.0.0 will also be released, but the RC3 version is not coming out for that quite yet, but it will get the G/S fix. I have more work to do on this AP system.

If you can test, the following planes qualify:
MD-88
MD-90
737-800 (YV3399 Version)
KC-137R
C-32J
MD-10

I'll let you know when the RC3 Built is available.

Kind Regards,
Josh

Hi,
I've got only 1 report so far, if no-one testes, I cannot be sure that everything bug-free before the final release.

So I ask, even if it went perfectly, please at least tell me so, so I can know that!

If you think there are any missing features, please advise.

MD-88 http://www.github.com/it0uchpods/MD-88
MD-90 http://www.github.com/it0uchpods/MD-90
737-800 (YV3399 Version) http://www.github.com/YV3399/737-800
KC-137R http://www.github.com/JMaverick16/KC-137R
C-32J http://www.github.com/JMaverick16/C-32J
MD-10 http://www.github.com/it0uchpods/MD-10

Kind Regards,
Josh

Excuse my ignorance, but how do I activate VNAV mode?
I have downloaded all the planes (equipped with your ITAF) from git and the Autopilot settings are the same in every plane.
Lateral modes seem to work perfectly.
FLCH (correctly) tracks only alt I set manually, but fully ignores altitudes in my flight-plan.
What's the magic button (or panel switch) to set vertical nav mode, pls? :-)

Hi,
VNAV was removed as of build 184 because it was very buggy, and I realised VNAV works different on almost every plane. The A320's custom ITAF will soon have the VNAV (Managed) modes.

The 737-800 will also get VNAV after releases of final ITAF V3

Kind Regards,
Josh

Sooo -- by the absence of posts here, I am going to assume that there are *no major bugs* and the autopilot works smoothly, and correctly.

So I will finalize the V3 version shortly and release, thus completing IT-AUTOFLIGHT V3.0.0, with further updates ONLY as bugfixes.

Kind Regards,
Josh

OK
Initial plans for IT-AUTOFLIGHT V3.1.0:
* New FLCH Limit system
* Change to Rate Based PIDs (Block IV)
* A few logic changes
