CoPilot needs some tweaking

  • Jan,


    I tried to use the DR400 Robin to fly a flight plan using the CoPilot. I encountered some problems.


    1. I have no control of the Altitude that CoPilot chooses. I want to fly at 2,000 ft, it wants to fly at 6,000 feet so I can't use the follow flight plan feature.

    2. The choice of power setting is either 100% or 23%. Nothing in-between is possible using the Speed icons.

  • The DR400 is not a production aircraft, it is used to demonstrate the SDK tools exclusively.

    I know that, but, . . . .


    Thanks.


    In production aircraft, the CoPilot should respect the selected altitude of the pilot when engaged?

    Yes and copilot does that, if you touch the aircraft symbol for increasing or decreasing the altitude the copilot will level off there. If you don't use the interface and never pushed any of the buttons then it will ignore them and keep your current flight path as demanded by the first level of engagement... "Don't touch anything, just keep it pointed to where it is going".
