Thread: Plane doesnt follow autopilot

    In previous sims, the stability settings have always been 1.0, or 100%.
    I've re-set all my stability scalars to 1, or 100%, and the autopilots are totally reliable.
    The scalars I'm referring to are in the flight_model.cfg under the [FLIGHT_TUNING] heading:

    pitch_stability = 1 <-- reset each one to 1 or 100%
    roll_stability = 1
    yaw_stability = 1

    Changing these settings has no effect on how the planes fly, they don't handle as if they're 'on rails', and they still get bounced around in turbulence.
    Where can I find these settings?
