Dynon adds autopilot capability to their glass panels

Dynon Avionics, Inc. today announced the release of new software version 5.0 for both their EFIS (Electronic Flight Instrument System) and EMS (Engine Monitoring System) products. This software upgrade is available free to all existing EFIS-D10A, EFIS-D100, FlightDEK-D180, EMS-D10, and EMS-D120 customers and will ship with new instruments.

NEW AUTOPILOT The most significant new feature is an advanced autopilot capability. For the incremental cost of Dynon pitch and roll servos, pilots can turn their EFIS instruments into a fully integrated autopilot system. The Dynon autopilot offers many advanced features to the Experimental and Light Sport market because the autopilot controls are integrated into the EFIS, similar to many expensive certified glass cockpit solutions. This allows for a cleaner user interface, better redundancy, and lower overall cost. The combination of two Dynon EFIS instruments plus two servos is less expensive than a single EFIS plus a separate autopilot from competitors. Dynon autopilot servos carry a List Price of only $750 each, and mounting kits are only $75.

Keeping with their tradition of innovation, the Dynon autopilot offers many advanced features. Basic features include flying magnetic heading, plus GPS ground track from a connected GPS. In addition to altitude hold, every Dynon autopilot can command the plane to fly to a new altitude and level off. Other standard features include emergency 180 degree turns and control wheel steering. And because the Dynon autopilot is based on its best-selling EFIS systems, it can also respect bank angle, airspeed, and G limitations.

The optional AP74 Dedicated Autopilot Interface Module adds separate autopilot controls and, like many expensive certified autopilots, adds the ability to pre-arm which mode will be flown upon autopilot engagement.

NEW INTERNAL DATA LOGGING Also included in version 5.0 release is the addition of EFIS Internal Data Logging, which stores readings for all primary flight instruments for later flight analysis. Data readings can be configured in 1-, 3-, 5-, 10-, 30-, and 60-second intervals. Data logging storage limit is at least 1⁄2-hours at the 1-second interval and up to 40 hours at the 60-second interval.
