View Full Version : GPS serial data fault indication?

01-05-2013, 09:37 PM
1) If the AF-Pilot is not getting good serial data from the GPS on pin 17, will it display any error or fault message?

2) Will AP mode work at all?

3) My understanding is that the AF-Pilot has no independent directional reference, and the SEL control operates only with reference to received GPS track data. Is that accurate?

It should show NO GPS and only go into bank angle mode.

Thanks. What is bank angle mode? The manual doesn't mention it, per se. Is it wing leveling only, or ...?

If you press the AP button it normally lets you enter the GPS track, with no GPS it lets you enter the bank angle.
