Dear: During climb after takeoff the pitch up of 727-100 was around 10 deg. But when I engaged AP, the pitch angle goes down and the plane becomes uncontrollable. I have to disengage AP, fly for sometime manually and then again engage AP, after that it becomes okay. Why at first attempt nose is going down?

Are you using the flight director?   I get a nosedive if I have the flight director on when I first activate the autopilot!

Try it without the flight director.  Make sure the plane is trimmed and it should hold pitch when you turn on the AP.

Dear David:

The actual procedure is to preset take off pitch with FD... Is that a bug in CS727 v2.7? Are they going to correct it?

Perhaps it was fixed in SP 2.7, but it has been a longstanding issue, at least for me.   If I use the FD on takeoff and engage the AP after trimming, I get a nose-dive.  Without the FD, I do not get a nosedive.
