View Full Version : Calibration Question

08-28-2012, 11:26 AM
I have an AFS pilot connected to an AF 5500.

Works GREAT in cruise and for climb and descent.

The issue is this:

When the AFS is in "heading" mode, it does not turn aggressively enough when the heading is changed, but in "Nav" mode it is too agressive such that it overcorrects when passing a waypoint.

Is this a gain setting in the EFIS or the Autopilot?

The EFIS Roll Gain controls the heading mode gain.

Thanks Rob. What about the gain when in NAV mode?

In Nav mode we only pass through the roll commands from the 430w, gtn650,.... The autopilot has the GPSS gain and LAT activity gain settings.
