Devas Autopilot Mod

by
Devastator_cm


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.

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 airplane 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
- Engine is damaged
- Roll angle is above maximums 35° (only for helicopters)
- Pitch angle is above maximums which is 20° for helicopters and 50° for fixed-wings
- Gives autopilot functionality to every air vehicle at mission start automatically
- Only pilot can turn it on/off


Installation:
To install Devas Autopilot Mod you should use modfolders to keep it seperate from the official game content to prevent issues.
With Arma 3 you can use different ways to set up your modfolders to use custom content you have downloaded.
