Devas Autopilot Mod

Description
This mod is working like the "Pitch Altitude Hold" setup which can be found for instance by F-16s.
Basically it is fixing the altitude when it is turned on but still let's you to adjust speed, do pitch, yaw and roll.
In addition to that Loiter (Pylon Turn) has been also added to the script.

Features

- Fixes the altitude to the sea level altitude when the autopilot is activated (will be referred as initial altitude)
- Gives possibility to pilot to adjust speed, pitch, yaw and roll angles while autopilot is open. Autopilot returns fixed-wing airplanes to initial altitude after control is released back
- Autopilot automatically turns off when
••••••• Speed below minimum speed based on landing speed. In case of helicopters minimum speed is 40 kmh
••••••• Speed above 0.9 Mach
••••••• Engine is damaged
••••••• Roll angle is above maximums 35° (only for helicopters)
••••••• Pitch angle is above maximums which is 25° for helicopters and 50° for fixed-wings
••••••• Rudder control (only by helicopters)
- Gives autopilot functionality to every air vehicle at mission start automatically
- Gives loiter (Pylon Turn) functionality to every fixed-wing at mission start automatically
- Autopilot and Loiter cannot be turned on at the same time
- Only pilot can turn it on/off. If co-pilot takes control, he/she is able to use the autopilot as well
- CBA A3 key binding

Dependencies
- CBA A3


Script version of the mod

Main functionality is same. Script needs to be installed to server only. In future mod version will probably more advanced though. So keep that in mind when you decide to use the script one

radius is depending on the speed but not possible to display in this current version

I was just wondering, what is the radius for the loiter and is there a way to change it?

自动驾驶可以让你的飞机保持平飞。可以说是舔地助手,在你看地图,设置坐标,寻找目标等时候该插件都可以派上用场。
用鼠标滚轮选择Autopilot ON/OFF可以切换打开/关闭
特征:
启用时,飞行高度将会固定在当前海拔高度并且把该高度设置为初始高度
启用时,可以控速度,仰俯,滚转和偏航,松开操纵杆后会自动返回初始高度
可以通过代码/脚本来使自动驾驶在任务一开始时就启用
只有飞行员可以打开/关闭
对于宙斯等实时编辑器生成的直升机和固定翼,可以通过以下代码来给玩家端添加自动驾驶功能:
[this] spawn DEVAS_AutoPilotEnable;
当遇到如下情况时自动驾驶会关闭:
速度低于最小着陆速度,直升机则为低于40KMPH
发动机损坏
滚转角度大于35度(仅适用于直升机)
仰俯角大于最大允许值——直升机为20度,固定翼为50度。

Doesn't appear to work.

I signed up even though I knew the mod wasn't working properly and waited for a notification that a new update was available to use.
