BNK Switch on the FGC in our Lear45

(Original thread started on 12-11-16 by Shane Barnes)

I came across an old post from Dave Ault, “TasKing” over at Pete Dowson's forum relating to the BNK function. I thought some of you might like this information. I tested the BNK switch tonight and confirmed that it does work. It will limit the bank to 14 degrees if engaged.

Not to stir the pot more but my FGC software has a bank and pitch hold function. When you engage the AP without a lateral mode engaged, it will hold the current bank angle. If you enable the AP without a vertical mode it will hold pitch. If you enable the AP without either lateral or vertical mode engaged, it will hold both pitch and bank. I have got this worked out in software already, just have to release the FGC software. I'm not sure how much more value it will add to Jet45 at this point. I think most of you already have functioning FGCs but since you are using the FS default AP, it's not entirely representative with the real LJ45 (i.e no pitch-speed hold etc.).
