For sometime I've wanted to ask this question: When I Press command8 ( Ground Control) & ask for assistance from one of the other misdirected allied squadron off picking daisies somewhere & I happen to ba in Auyopilot mode ( or switch to it...) my entire flight including myself goes into a flying circles mode wherever the call for help is made & more irritating when help does arrive ( if it does)my flight continues to circle( if I tell them to go to next way pt they usually do ,but as long & will not go to next way pt( to meet enemy) unless or until I go out of auto pilot.If the enemy is still some ways away I now have to fly normal or maybe 2X mode for the entire distance ( but now with some help.On short distance missions this isn't too bad , but in Pacific Missions well ...you know these can be awfully long routes.Does anyone have an idea to stop this circling nonsense????

they will sit and loiter in that general area until you tell them to rejoin formation, thats if like you said, your calling HQ for help. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
