HAP.CFG

How do you know that the path for the HAP.CFG is correct?

Using the lift off function, you get a hover, then transition out to 40 kts. At 40 kts the VS & IAS functions activate. However, if they set themselves to 0 Kts & 0 Feet per minute the path is not correct and the HAP.CFG is not loaded.

There is an easy way to solve problems with the HAP.CFG. Put the file into a folder on your drive "C" like "C
:\HAP\hap.cfg"

PATH

The path to the HAP.CFG needs to be in the old DOS style.
