Route Manager

Postby Olympian » Sat Jan 19, 2013 1:02 am

The WP arrival test in the Route Manager software appears to have a bug or a short-coming.
While flying a complex list of way points, the route manager occasionally flies passed a way point and remains on the last leg-mag-course.

On the same subject, there doesn't appear to be little, if any, XTE correction to intercept ground track of the leg course. The aircraft seems
happy to fly parallel to the proper WP to WP ground track.

I'm running version 2.8.0.5 under window 7.

What aircraft are you flying? Some of them have a custom autopilot, while some use the generic one.
