Overview

When installed with G3X Touch flight displays, the GMC 507 offers alternative, dedicated autopilot controls. While autopilot features can be selected using the touchscreen controls on G3X Touch flight displays, this unit allows for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments by using the control wheel. Additionally, separate knobs allow easy twist-control of heading/track and altitude. And for added safety, the controllerís dedicated LVL mode button commands automatic recovery from steep or unusual attitudes, prompting the autopilot to return the aircraft to straight-and-level flight.
