I don't understand that on the b777 picture on the Xplane10 website for mobile it shows that the speed autopilot is engaged. If anybody knows please reply.

Hi Pilot Geek,

I'm not sure what B777 picture you are referencing that shows a speed autopilot engaged. Can you provide a link to where you see that?

X-Plane 10 Mobile only has three autopilot modes (HDG, ALT & PCH) that are turned on and off by tapping near the top of the mobile device's screen.

I can´t for the life of me make out what the FMA says in those pictures. But it certainly doesn´t look like any speed is selected on the MCP (0), so it would be far-fetched to assume that the APFCS is in MCP SPD mode in those pictures...

Don´t forget that this is a version of the 777 made to run well on a handheld telephone at acceptable speed, it is not designed to complement your type-rating course for flying the real thing. There is a payware 777 available to run on the desktop version on X-Plane, this will definitely add a more complete choice of autopilot/autothrust modes.

Good luck, Jan

Hello Pilot Geek!

It would indeed be really nice if a Speed Autopilot function existed. I miss this in the current version of X-Plane Mobile, and hope they add it. About the photo, I think only pitch and heading were on. Maybe it's just me. Anyway, Speed A/P would be really appreciated!
