The Autopilot control panel allows full control of the SkyView approach-capable autopilot without touching a single button on the SkyView screen. Just reach up, touch the mode you want, and sit back while SkyView takes control. Innovative features like the LEVEL button are always there for you no matter what else you are doing with SkyView. All buttons are backlit and feature sharp tactile feedback when pressed.
Built-in Trim Controller
It doesn’t stop there. The Autopilot module is also a full featured dual-axis trim controller. It can control your electric pitch and/or roll trim motors, replacing any relay decks that may be in the plane. It also has the ability to slow down the speed of trim as you fly faster so that your trim sensitivity is the same at all airspeeds (“speed scheduling” in jet-speak). More than a simple two speed controller, this feature is fully proportional and can be easily adjusted right in the SkyView setup menus.
Trim Controller Safety Features
Controlling trim in your aircraft is serious, and Dynon takes safety here to the next level. The trim controller works even if SkyView is offline, with redundant power inputs. Trim is protected from running away due to stuck buttons, the outputs are protected from shorts, and the pilot has priority over co-pilot inputs. Use of the trim controller is optional.
