Flying in the solo version, as soon as the autopilot is released, the aircraft descends the nose, even doing calibration. This is normal?
Yes - this is normal as when you are descending on final/short approach - Your nose is typically facing upwards or level. To add more, the way in which the calibration sets you out is on a flat horizontal line so in order for the plane to continue the descent it’ll have to push the nose down to remain on the correct vs-.
However, because there isn’t much you can do about it, just counter it in the best way you can :)
Oh Aware to procedure.
But that only happens when I’m in visual flight and I deactivate the autopilot.
Yeah - if you calibrate with autopilot on it’ll calibrate, but not effect the aircrafts motion.
Is that relevant to the discussion?
Yes, yes. 👍
You can use trim to pitch the nose down which helps a ton, even works if the calibration wasn’t done correctly.
Good point - should have added that.
