    I haven't had a chance to try this out yet, but it looks promising! There's no mention of needing other library files, so installation should be a breeze.

The best I could do is get it off the ground without triggering the auto-feather! I can, however, provide a little insight into those direction indicator numbers. The first number can be anything from 0 to 4: 0 - Not present 1 - Vacuum Driven Gyro 2 - Electric Gyro 3 - Electro-Mag Slaved Gyro 4 - Slaved to another indicator 0 is pretty much self-explanatory. 1 and 2 are both susceptible to precess, and you need to hit the "D" key periodically to stay on course. This will cause VOR tracking to go off-course, which I thought might be happening from your original post. 3 cures that issue, since it self-adjusts based on the...

    Post the section from your aircraft.cfg - I'd like to see something before recommending anything. Edit: I don't think the default has an autopilot at all. Have you added one?
