Is there a way to calibrate your controls before disengaging auto pilot to land on short final? I always would hold my phone normally in front of me where I feel comfortable and then calibrate it. When I disengage auto pilot, the plane’s nose would either rise upwards or downwards a lot so I would have to adjust my device quickly forward away or towards me, making it really hard to see my device. Any tips or suggestions to help me fix this issue?
Yes there is:
Just tap the three lines in the bottom right, followed by “Calibrate” :)
Usually on final, some additional trim is needed to not end up with a dive. At least for me.
The same thing happened to me before … But make sure that VS is at 0 in the HUD or not greater than 10 or -10 that will help you to calibrate and remove the autopilot to not move at all
Hi! Welcome to the IFC!
Did you mean the Short Final option on solo? I usually add more power, then press the 20 secs back button for a second, proper go, as it is too short of a track!
If you meant on live, either you gotta sorta prepare to “catch it” right after disengaging A/P or wait for V/S to read 0. Callibrating levels out your flight surfaces to neutral (inline with the wings), so when you disengage A/P while on full deflection it jumps.
Hope that helps, cheers! :)
