Tips on using AP (Auto Pilot) on the Ramzzess 777 Boeing Worldliner Professional

Glossary

AP or A/P – Autopilot

FBW – Fly By Wire

Even with A/P engaged, FBW (Fly By Wire) will sense your control input.

If you do not center your mouse-yoke when activating the A/P, you will be sending a constant nose-up input. That means, you are permanently exerting a control force on the yoke, which is sensed by the FBW. The A/P might or might not have enough power to trim against it.

In the real world, there is a very simple rule: Give the A/P a well trimmed airplane, and the A/P will return you a well trimmed airplane.

That means, if you engage the A/P, you should have little to no control force at all. Translated to your mouse-yoke that means the mouse yoke should be completely centered when engaging the A/P. That in turn protects you from nasty surprises when disengaging the A/P.

They offer several different subscriptions.

They recommend backing up before installing the updates. My computer is still backing up so I haven’t installed them yet. There is no exe installer as the instructions seem to imply. I’m just going to merge the files into the “777 Worldliner Professional” folder.
