Well my only suggestions are either if they have a support forum, go there or else e-mail the manufacturer about you problem.

Why are you torturing us by using such small Font in Blue?

When I get the Blues I yell at my computer...

Well If it is a complex addon then you do need to spend time to reading the WHOLE manual. Thats the only way to go.

I think someone mentioned that the iFly 747 has an FMC. To get the AP to work properly, you first need to program the FMC and then use AP in concordance with the FMC - i.e. you'll need to read the manual 😉

Yes it does have an FMC and thankfully the instructions are written in standard font 😀

You must read the section of the FMC.

I have found that using the IRS by switching it OFF and then back to NAV to align causes the autopilot , attitiute indicator and heading not to function.
You can load the normal working aircraft by using the MENU button then SIMU in the FMC .
A reference chart for t/o,climb,cruise,landing etc would be useful.The numbers in the FMC are a little meaningless sometimes.

There is some that want SIDS and STARS, just program the fixes into the FMC .You can get the updated Airac cycle .

Tha NAV page in the FMC allows you to set course direction for ILS intercept.

I still have trouble in getting VNAV to work on climb out and have to try autoland.
