Hello Flightdeck Solution help desk

I have an unusual problem, when I use the elevator trim up or down, the autopilot disengage.

FSUIPC parameter all look good, the elevator trim function correctly, the only problem is when the autopilot is engaged and use the elevator trim will disengage.

Please advise for direction or solution.

Thank you
Robert

This is completely normal.
When the A/P is engaged the 'A/P' has control of the Stab Trim and Elevator.

If the pilot applies a manual input - ie Yoke movement or Trim input the A/P no longer has control and must disengage.

There is no reason for the pilot to apply Stab Trim whilst the A/P is engaged.
