Su-25 Alt commands Level Flying, Roll, Etc.

Quick Question:

 

There is a series of commands I experimented with:, namely ALT-#. So, the one I use the most is ALT-3, level flying. When it does work, it really does level out the plane, but sometimes it gets me stuck in a roll and the plane isn't easy to control.

 

How do I turn off the ALT-#'s after I employ them? For example, if I want to fly level for a time, I press ALT-2, but what do I push to regain full control of the plane? Is there some situation where the plane automatically quits the ALT-# command I previously gave it?

There is a particular behavior for SU25T indeed. When you turn off your autopilot you need to trim manually your plane to neutral behavior.

 

Check your controller settings for trim and make use of them every time when you shutdown the autopilot.

This question is for the Su-25T, just to clear that the Su-25A have not auto-pilot.

 

everytime you use autopilot (Alt-3 emergency level mode, Alt-2 barometric altitude and bank angle hold mode, or whatever autopilot mode) you should know that is a limit angle for a right response of the autopilot mode selected. So in max speed with a high angle, maybe the autopilot have a nonresponse or an uncertain response.

 

In some cases you can help to the Autopilot. For example, after you activate emergency level mode (Alt-3), sometimes the aircraft start an uncontrolable banking movements. The best you can do is pull over slightly to the contrary side and so on till you get a stable response of the selected mode.

@pepin: Ok, so I will definitely keep that in mind; that there are limits for which the autopilot will work. Also, I definitely understand the uncontrollable banking movements--that was the most prominent thing I noticed.

 

"activate emergency level mode (Alt-3)". Why is it called an emergency level? I thought the Alt buttons were automatic pilots. Is Auto Pilot for emergencies? I thought it was about helping to move the plane so that the pilot doesn't have to keep all the micro-corrections.

 

I experimented with Alt-9, wasn't sure how much it worked, but I'm going to keep practicing to see. it probably did, but I'm just too green.

 

Also, I'm learning a bit about basic flying as well. "you need to trim manually your plane to neutral behavior". Does the game or the website have somewhere where I can read about this better? That would probably help.

 

Thanks for your help, I'm keeping up with the flying

Example: Sometimes you do a hard maneuver and this made your stick get off-center. This is a dangerous situation and the Alt-3 (emergency mode) help to this situation, lining up the flight.

is very simple... Alt-9 disengages all autopilots modes to get the control by yourself.

 

Example: after a X situation that you needed to use Alt-3 (emergency mode) you need take the aircraft control by yourself, so in that case you use Alt-9 to disengages all previous mode selected.
