[MOD] FSX GPS and Default AP

Just a short mod I made to make some longer flights easier with this aircraft.
BACK UP YOUR AIRCRAFT.CFG AND PANEL/PANEL.CFG PRIOR TO APPLYING!!!!!!!!!

DISCLAIMER:
NEITHER I, NOR BLACKBOX SIMULATION IS RESPONSIBLE IF YOU BREAK YOUR AIRCRAFT.

If you do break something, you can always reinstall it to repair this.

So this will add the FSX default GPS, as well as the default Bendex King Autopilot.

How to install:
Open the SimObjects/Airplanes/BlackBox SA_Bulldog V2

Open Panel/panel.cfg

Find [Window01]

BELOW gauge01=BlackBox-SA-Bulldog!Server, 4,4,10,10 add

[Window02]
size_mm=456,378
window_size=0.5
position=8
BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0
visible=0
ident=GPS_PANEL
gauge00=fs9gps!gps_500,0,0

[Window03]
size_mm=156,48
position=8
BACKGROUND_COLOR=0,0,0
visible=0
ident=AP
gauge00=Bendix_King_Radio!Bendix-King Radio AP, 0,0,156, 48

Now we need to make the AP work. The default setup has no gains or anything for the AP, so it won't fly.
To fix, open your aircraft.cfg


Do a find command for [autopilot]
Replace everything from [autopilot] to [forcefeedback] with the following:

[autopilot]
autopilot_available= 1
flight_director_available= 0
default_vertical_speed= 700.0
autothrottle_available= 0
pitch_takeoff_ga=8.0
max_pitch=10.0
max_pitch_acceleration=1.0
max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt=2.0
max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt=1.5
max_pitch_velocity_lo_alt_breakpoint=20000.0
max_pitch_velocity_hi_alt_breakpoint=28000.0
max_bank=25.0
max_bank_acceleration=1.8
max_bank_velocity=3.00
max_throttle_rate=0.10
nav_proportional_control=9.00
nav_integrator_control=0.25
nav_derivative_control=0.00
nav_integrator_boundary=2.50
nav_derivative_boundary=0.00
gs_proportional_control=9.52
gs_integrator_control=0.26
gs_derivative_control=0.00
gs_integrator_boundary=0.70
gs_derivative_boundary=0.00
yaw_damper_gain = 0.0
[forcefeedback]

Make sure you do not have duplicate [autopilot] or [forcefeedback]

Note that I may update the autopilot area of the aircraft.cfg, to continue to tune, and improve the AP. I will post here when I do so.

Enjoy,
Josh
