Overview

The RCA2610 is the updated version of the popular RCA2600 Electric Digital Attitude Indicator. It is the perfect companion to the RCA1510 Digital Heading Indicator. This version has the same form, fit, and function as the original but has dual processors, improved screen resolution and updated software. The optional Pitch Sync feature allows pilots to instantly synchronize the airplane symbol to the horizon line when flying in a pitch up or pitch down attitude.

The RCA2610-G version comes without the Pitch Sync feature and functions like the original model with the brightness controls only.

The RCA2610 is designed to handle the high vibration environment found on helicopters and yet, their light weight makes them perfect for soaring. This makes the RCA2610 the most versatile and dependable Digital AI on the market today. With no moving parts to wear out, this instrument will provide years of reliable service - that’s why it includes a full two-year warranty!

All RCA2610 models can be ordered with an optional slip indicator (inclinometer) which satisfies FAA AC 91-75 for even greater versatility.

The panel tilt angle can be set from 0 to 90 degrees in one degree increments, but must be specified at time of order.

It gets 2 stars because it looks good....What a rip-off otherwise. 2 year warranty....? Wow! I paid for that warranty up front...Should be a free replacement...

So far it is nice. Replaced our turn coordinator with the RC2610. Screen space is a bit smaller than traditional AI but outstanding backup to a Vacuum AI. Only issue we had was, the tilt. We thought tilt was the amount of adjustment you can get with the up down arrows. It is not. It is for someone with a panel that is tilted 8 degrees. (Not sure who has that). No applicability list that recommends proper AI for your aircraft. Asked Aircraft Spruce for swap but they are not able to be cause we placed it in the panel. We were advised to sell on e-bay. We called RC Allen and they are going to adjust ours to zero tilt for additional $200. Expensive mistake on our part but at least a better solution than eating the price of a new one or the loss of value by selling on E-Bay. So it works nice but, be careful which unit you buy. It is yours period.

Added the RCA 2610 to my Piper and I love it! Its easy to get used to, it reliable, and accurate. The installation was easy, adding the back up ESP took a little time to find a great location but worth the time. I only wish that RC Allen charged a little less for the unit, but it is a great competitor to the G5 and if you want is the AI then there is no reason for adding all of the extra work for the G5. Now my next upgrade will be the RC Allen HI.

I give it 5 stars, but I havent flown with it yet. The installation was straight forward (with an A&P, of course). The only change I had to make was the circuit breaker switch. The old was 5 amps and we installed a 2 amp as called for in the instructions. The only down side is the cost. Not worth the extra thats added on because its certified.
