Good evening fellow captains! On my recent flights I encountered yet another new problem.... I cannot, for the love of god, get AP1to work anymore and follow commands, if I engage AP1 at around 4000 feet, the Concorde goes straight pitch down into the ground, it doesnt respond to any AP commands (HDG TRK, PITCH HOLD etc) AP2 works fine, funny enough.. I followed the checklists by the line as I always (99% ) do.. Has anyone else experienced a similar issue? Any help would be much much appreciated!
Hello, I have had the concorde-x for a couple of days now and i have great confidence in flying her. But there is still a couple of things that i'm not able to do. The worst on being that my autopilot is uncontrollable at mach 2. As soon as I reach mach 1.96-97, the autopilot starts to jump the aircraft up and down. Like it moves up a little and tries to correct that by moving down, but then moves to far down and then goes back up to far until it creates these huge up and down rollercoaster like motion that eventually results in the aircraft spinning at an impossible rate. from there i cannot regain control again as everyone onboard probably does instantly after the plane starts spinning it is ridiculous. Another problem(which is not the aircrafts fault,) is that i dont know how to make her climb faster (V/S). I can't find out where the V/S knob is so that i can climb faster. it would be very great for some help or the money i spent on this is a waste as i cannot fly mach 2.
