Hi,

I worked in Panther (Copter) simulator development with Prepar 3D (flight simulation software). I have installed the first version of Dirk Fassbender Autopilot and then the update. Everything was ok.
I can drive all the autopilot modes with the Autopilot module.

But now I want to stimulate Autopilot modes directly in P3D. I don’t know how this module works.

When I have downloaded the HC075DI_FSX_COUGAR_AUTOPILOT.zip I saw that inside there was a file called afcp.cfg. Inside this file there are the different codekeys to stimulate the different modes of Autopilot.

I have tried to manage the autopilot modes by the codekeys are in the afcp.cfg directly in P3D but there is no effect.

Somebody have an idea how to do ?

Best regards

Pierre B

Hi,

I had asked for your help in the realization of an automatic pilot (AP) of Panther on 3D Prepar, in particular for the integration of a panel of physical buttons.

I suceed to realize it finally by myself.

The problem which I had indicated, solved itself by the installation of an update of DIRK FASSBENDER'S AP which would have made it " potentially " compatible with P3D.

Then I parametrized and personalized the engagings of autopilot modes with hot keys in the hap.cfg file (placed on the folder of P3D).

There is a card called KeyCard of Opencockpit connected to the computer in USB. We can connect to this card physical buttons through an Input Card.

I was then able to configure sendings of codes keyboard with buttons press, which allow finally to engage and disengage these autopilot modes.

Best regards

Pierre B

if its p3dv3 or below you need to enter the ap dll entry into the xml.dll

fsx automatically added it when starting the sim after the first install, where P3D doesnt and it needs to be manual added

if you are using v4 give up it wont work unless Dirk and Antton recompile to 64bit
