    I know with external control heads you can deselect altitude hold with the ALT button. I don't know if the GDU allows deselecting the vertical component but I'm pretty sure there's a button for it....

    Share controls? Are you talking about hand flying with the AP on or resistance from the servos with AP off? The latter is a non issue with Garmin. You won't know the servos are there. The former?...

    With a baffle standoff and how low you mounted a 13 row cooler on the aft baffle I'm surprised #3 stays within 25*. Throwing more fuel to it addresses a symptom, not the problem. My opinion anyway....

    Has anyone added a yaw damper to their Cub AP? I didn't consider it because the G3X won't run it without a dedicated controller added. I sorta wish I had the 305 or 507 controller. The AP would be...

    It isn't a pitot problem. The GDU's minimum speed display is 20mph, or 20kts if you prefer knots. The lowest tape marker is 30mph but the numerical and tape indicators come alive at 20.

    When I changed a 2 blade to 3 blade on the Skywagon the smoothness was remarkable. Three blades on 6 cylinders made sense for that. A 3 blade on a 4 cylinder makes less sense, but Whirlwind makes a...

    If CHTs are the focus? I'd lose that cooler, close the baffle, and put the cooler back on the nose with an outlet duct so it doesn't pressurize the lower cowl. I've got the opportunity to reduce...

    There's no magic to a nosebowl for a wide body. Nose bowl width is determined by the engine width. The cowl aft of that transitions form nose bowl to boot cowl. Pretty straight forward if using cowl...
