Benefits

Cutting Edge Technology Without the Cutting
  • AV-30 fits in your existing 3” panel slot seamlessly. By mounting from behind, it preserves the “round dial” look, and eliminates the need for cutting or replacing your panel.
Probeless Angle of Attack (AOA) - Avoid Stalls
  • The AV-30 alerts you visually and aurally if you approach a dangerous AoA. AoA is calculated by comparing the aircraft’s pitch, flight path, and G-loading.

Supposed to show vertical speed. I can’t find it. Supposed to be able to adjust for angled panel, it almost does.

Q&A

Q: At manual for AV-30 written that IAS units can be only KTS and MPH. Is it possible to add KMH? The same question fot ALT units, it is only Feet. Is it possible to add Meters?

Per the manufacturer: these will not display KMH.

Q: Good morning, I'm planning to visit the 2020 Sun Fun and pick up an AV-30 CERTIFIED at your booth, obviously ordered in time. Do you think the instrument will be ready certified for that time?

There is a certified version of this unit. Please see Part# 11-17556. We are expecting first delivery of the certified version in January of 2020. Part # 11-17555 will not become certified, it will only be for experimental so for certified applications, be sure to order 11-17556.

Q: The manual indicates the AOA has a slow speed limit of 35 knots. I am looking at putting it on an experimental aircraft with a stall speed of 30 statute miles an hour. What happens to the instrument reading when you go below 35 knots?

Because the limit is 35 knots, it will not display anything until it is over that speed.

Q: Does the Uavionix AV-30 unit show bank angle (or at least some of the common points 15/30/60)?

No. This unit does not show bank angle.

Q: Will the AV-30 link with a Tru-Trk auto pilot like the 2020 planned S-Tec adapter can it be used on other brand auto pilot?

At this moment we do not have this information available as Uavionix has not released this information.

Q: When in HSI mode can this Uavionix AV30 unit display vertical guidance from a GPS for an LPV approach?

Per Uavionix: there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.

Q: Will the AV-30 unit show speed limits (Green, White, Yellow arc, Vne red line) etc. I didnt find it in the specifications)

Yes, the gauge will have a green and red arc for the indicated airspeed.

Q: Does this pair with the Garmin 495 Gps?

No, this does not interface to the portable Garmin GPS.

Q: Does the AV30 have an internal GPS?

No. Per the installation manual, it can function without a GPS signal, however it will require a GPS signal for full functionality. The GPS signal must be supplied to the unit, it is not internal.

Q: Does AV30 (Experimental) pair with the Garmin 150XL GPS?

Per the manufacturer installation manual Rev A. the AV-30 is not a compatible unit to pair with the Garmin 150XL GPS.
