Add an Affordable AFCS
All it takes is the addition of Garmin’s affordable GSA 28 “smart” servo units to give your G3X a range of autopilot capabilities similar to those provided by our top-end flight control technology. You have the option of purchasing 1 servo (roll only), or 2 servos (pitch + roll) to add the level of capability you want. Even better, the Garmin servo provides a built-in interface to drive a customer supplied trim servo at no extra cost. When the autopilot is off, the servo provides speed scheduling for the manual trim commands. When the autopilot is on, the servo adjusts to constantly keep the aircraft trimmed. It also features a gear train with engagement clutch and the ability to back drive the brushless DC motor, providing multiple levels of safety without the use of a shear pin. Plus, servo software updates are done over the CAN bus using the G3X SD card, eliminating the need to send the servo back to the manufacturer for updates.
Reviewing every item on an order is a little much. Please do not do this to me again. You have good service when ordering parts but when a problem occurs and the personnal touch is needed you fall a little short.
The bridle cable is not included by Garmin and you will need to buy a capstan kit add-on to make this work.
This servo has a highspeed PWM signal.
This is the servo only. The connector kit and installation kit are sold separately.
