The AHRS-1 for Experimental / LSA aircraft is a 2 1/4Ē sunlight readable color display instrument providing a display for an artificial horizon reference system (AHRS), an advanced digital compass, or both depending on which sensor packages are connected.
Compass with slip indicator (requires MGL Avionics SP-6 sensor package)
This device would likely be pretty nice but it fits a 2 opening instead of 2 1/4. When it got here I discovered this when I tried to install it in my panel

Q: Does the MGL Vega AHRS-1 display work as an attitude indicator as a stand alone unit? Or does it need additional sensors package?
Per the install manual you will need the SP-7 (attitude sensor) and SP-6 (compass) units to drive the instruments for this gauge.
Q: MGL Vega AHRS-1 requires unit -7/9 not shown or priced.
Can you update me on this please?
To be used as a compass with optional slip indicator, you would require the SP-6 Magnetometer, our Part# 11-09744. For the Horizon with slip, turn, & G-Force or Turn/Bank indication, you would require the SP-7, our part number 11-09743. The combined functionality would require both a SP-6 and a SP-7. These have now been added to the options selection on this unit.
Q: What is included in the package? Ref.: 12.2 Connection Diagram schematic Fuse holder, 1.0A Slow Blow fuse, 120 ohm resistors (2 shown), twisted pair wiring, Alarm Lamp... ?
The AHRS-1 comes with a connector to apply pwr/ground and wire in the CAN bus.
