This console program connects to FSX via SimConnect, and provides a three-axis autopilot controlling the cyclic and rudder. Note: You may need to install the Microsoft .NET Framework for your operating system to run this program. By Cedric Ma.

Autopilot functions can be toggled on/off via the Landing Gear event.

There are two submodes that can be toggled via the period (".") key on the keyboard (not keypad):

  • Hover Mode (default).
  • Forward Mode is similar to auto-hover except that the pitch angle is adjustable via the user's joystick.

Due to SimConnect message delays, the autopilot may become unstable beyond 4x simulation time acceleration. If the autopilot is allowed to run for a few seconds after any maneuvering, most transient motions will be damped out and the helicopter will remain fairly stable for much longer periods without the autopilot being active. This strategy can be used to bring a helicopter across long distances on 128x acceleration.
