View Full Version : Settings for AFS autopilot RV7?

05-09-2014, 10:58 AM
Does anyone have the exact settings for the AFS autopilot for a RV7 they would like to share? Have used the RV4 settings from the manual, but the plane seems to jump around quite a bit. I am still in Phase I and only have a couple of flights so far. I would like to get this set first so I can concentrate on other tasks at hand.

Generally, you can set the activities on both axes at 2 or 3. If the plane is jumpy, try reducing the activity setting in the offending axis.

Thanks for the quick reply Lucas. Winds gusting to 18 kts right now. I will try that this weekend.

Just a follow up to this thread. The settings were good. I had reverse sensing, thought I had checked this before first flight, but obviously not. Clipped the jumper wire between pin 1 and pin 2. All is well. A/P works great in AP mode and EFIS mode. Flew a GPS coupled approach yesterday. Course intercept was smooth as was the glide path. It is amazing how great these things are when you follow e directions! ��
