V/S auto pilot

When I turn my auto pilot to 1400 V/S it goes all the way up to 2800 and I almost stall out. This just happened to me while taking off from KRDN. Any thing to fix this?

Try making sure that your speed is appropriate. If your going too slow, this VS can be very harsh, causing the nose to pitch wayy up. I would also recommend you set your altitude and then V/S as the plane will already be heading upwards and the +1400 V/S won’t be a dramatic change. Sometimes the IF autopilot makes very harsh movements and then calms down after 30 seconds or so. Let me know if any of this helps :)
