I recently installed a Dynon autopilot in my CH750. Currently performing in-flight testing and tuning. Wondering if anyone has done same and can provide final roll and pitch settings if different from default settings?C-FZYB%20Autopilot%20installed%21.jpeg

David,

How difficult was the installation? 

Thanks!

Jonathan

Sorry for the delay in responding Jonathan. The installation was not that difficult. You could do it in a weekend  if you wanted...but schedule a week, few hours a day with a buddy. I got Dynon SV mounts along with excellent installation instructions from David J. Beaulieu who is a fellow member. Give him a call.

Cheers,

Dave

It took me some time probably 20 hours into testing before I tackled the autopilot. With the default settings, every time I tried to turn it on it tried to roll me upside down. It took a while before I got the heavy wing issue taken care of then realized I had AP in the wrong mode and it was trying to follow CRS bug instead of the flight plan. Once I got that taken care of it dialed in quite nicely. 

The biggest drawback is that Dynon refuses to make a simulator or trainer and you have to risk your life learning how to fly the panel in the air!

So I decided to make a clone of the HDX and my panel to do ground training with!

Thanks for the comment Jonathan!

Nice clone of the HDX..very cool!

How did you fix your heavy wing issue?
