Looked before I asked.

Wondering about how to setup the basic autopilot for a C-172 for XPlane 11. Could you provide some clues and where to look for more guidance? Thanks.

Just click the [Autopilot] button in the configurator layout map ant find all needed buttons, knobs and displays.
Start and try to see the result (depending what you really want to build).

Excellent, thanks for the response. Like I said I am all working now so reinstalling worked for me, I guess that brought everything to the latest version. Thanks for the info about firmware, I only reinstalled as part of my troubleshooting. I need to put the electronics away for a while and get some flying hours in :-).

Can I just ask one unrelated question, the AP_Failure signal does not seem to match the 'Fail' on the X-Plane Cessna AP LCD. Is that a different signal?

Many thanks.
Andy,

Try AP_Warning

Maybe I should swap these two param names by functionality....
Vlad
Not AP_Warning. It never fails anyway :-)
I suspect that Laminar C172 uses the "AP_Trim_Failure"

Assign it, and use the AP annunciators test button (also assigned) to see.

I used the equipment failures to test, it doesn't seem to be AP_Trim_Failure either.

I'll keep looking.
