Designing a stable autopilot is one of the hardest things. Need help?

Hello friend,
That is because you are using a JSBsim aircraft, and did not add the module which is required for a JSBsim! To find that, pls see this place on the wiki: http://wiki.flightgear.org/IT-AUTOFLIGHT#Installing
Under "if you are using a JSBsim aircraft"

Kind Regards,
Josh

Hmm, it does not seem to be working still for me. I added the JSBSim code (the gear-agl-ft.xml) into systems and I added the code into the aircraft set file and I changed the value inside gear-agl but I am still getting the nasal error and heading still does not work, did I miss something?

Hi,
Can you please check if the property /position/gear-agl-ft is created and updating? I cannot reproduce any errors on latest ITAF. Are you sure you added the <systems> in the correction location? (inside <sim>)

Kind Regards,
Josh

Hi,
By popular request. ITAF now supports custom FMA natively.

It will call 2 functions, one for lateral and one for vertical and one for armed modes when the modes change. Nothing passed so that you have the freedom to do WHATEVER logic you want! An example file is provided here:
https://github.com/Octal450/IT-AUTOFLIG ... om-fma.nas
Just remember to set custom-fma in the settings of on the config to 1 (true) to enable this functionality. :)

See the wiki: http://wiki.flightgear.org/IT-AUTOFLIGHT#Custom_FMA

Kind Regards,
Josh

Many bugfixes going into 4.0.6 should have a stable shortly.

Going to add a few new features as well

The latest v4.0.6 beta now supports separate HDG HLD and HDG SEL mode.
If you enable that option, the HLD button will capture current heading and not change the knob's value. SEL will follow the knob.

If you don't enable it, the logic is like before.

Kind Regards,
josh

Code: Select all
V4.0.6:
[Control Loop]
* Added: Ability to seperate HDG HLD and HDG SEL
* Fixed: Bug in T/O and G/A modes
* Fixed: Altitude Predictor overshoots when ALT HLD is pushed
* Fixed: Incorrect order of IAS and Mach syncing and filtering in drivers
* Fixed: IAS and Mach smoothing logic active when no system was active
* Fixed: A/THR far too slow to advance power in T/O and G/A modes

[Nasal]
* Added: Ability to seperate HDG HLD and HDG SEL (New config required)
* Fixed: Possibility of switching to Mach breaks T/O and G/A CLB
* Fixed: ILS button did not disarm LNAV
* Fixed: LNAV button did not disarm LOC or ILS
* Fixed: Bad handling of armed annunciator in default GUI
* Fixed: Engaging/Disengaging Track caused a nasal error
* Fixed: Lag in Thrust Mode selection
* Changed: Default init behavior is reset-all, no more needing to specify 0
* Changed: HDG SEL/HLD Logic now calls Lateral Custom FMA Update

[GUI]
* Fixed: Armed annunciator
* Changed: SPD changed to IAS

strongly suggest updating due to the huge amount of bugs fixed

Please be advised you need to add
Code: Select all
<hdg-hld-separate>0</hdg-hld-separate> <!-- Separates the HDG HLD mode from the HDG SEL mode -->

to your config module (leave on 0 unless you need that functionality - see wiki for details)
if coming from 4.0.5.. For earlier versions check the ITAF CONFIG.txt pls for additional changes!

next version will add support for A/P trip conditions and other aircraft-integrations like looped A/P sound - no more needing to do hacky stuff!

Kind Regards,
Josh
