I am new to Deltaglider and Orbiter so please forgive me if these questions have been answered before.

1. What are the parameters that can be programed into the auto pilot. i.e. Periaopisis etc. (I know that you can
select a heading/inclination) Is there a reference for the parmeters that can be programed?

2. My laptop screen can be set at 1280x1024 or 1024x768 but it cannot be set at resolution in between. This leaves either a space between the panel and the edge at the 1280x1024 setting OR at the lower setting ( 1024x768 ) the panel is too big and I have to scroll. The question is: is there a way to strech the panel in 1280x1024 mode?

Thanks in advance

1 - You can modifiy the pro903 autopilot file located there : C:\Orbiter_Path\Sound\deltagliderIII\PROG (already explained in
the documentation if my memory is good)

The only parameter accepted is the launch heading for ascent autopilot and reentry angle for descent autopilot.
Once again read the doc or look at the in-panel checklist.

2 - M'y screen resolution is 1280*800, and in the parameters tab of the orbiter launchpad you've a field called "panel
scale", my current setting is 1.11 (so 'ive to scroll a little but the two mfd are in my screen)

Hope this help.
