The Autopilot is very erratic
Sim-Avionics contains aircraft configuration files for a number of 737 and 777 aircraft. These files also contain Autopilot tuning information and the correct configuration file must be loaded for the Autopilot to work correctly.

Aircraft Configuration files can be selected and loaded via the Server menu.
Aircraft Specific > Load Aircraft.

Configuration files are included for :
PMDG 737
Default 737
PMDG 737
WILCO Feelthere 777

Additional aircraft can be used with Sim-Avionics but the Autopilot may require some additional tuning depending on the flight model charateristics.
Please contact support@sim-avionics.com for further information.

The Battery Switch does not switch on the Displays
Assuming that the above test has been sucessfully completed.

Check that the Standby Power switch is enabled.

There have been a few changes to the elecrical system in version .182
CPT's displays and Left DEU are powered from the Standby power bus.
FO's displays and Right DEU are powered from the R AC transfer bus.

So with the Standby Power switch ON and the Battery switch ON the CPT's monitors are powered, then once the L DEU boots the CPT displays appear. The DEU boot time is usually a minute or so, this can be set in the server but is defaulted to 5 secs for convenience.

Once AC power is established the FO's screens will switch on and the R DUE will boot.

- If the Standby power switch is OFF then the CPT's displays will be blank.
- If there is no AC power then the FO's displays will be blank.

Is the EICAS upper display customisable?
In the server under Aircraft Detail, Aircraft Options. There is an "Alternate 737 Engine Display" that you need to check the box. Then most important is the saving of the Aircraft Configuration in the Aircraft Specific / Save Aircraft in the top of the Server screen.
