Re: When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing ro

Bill, if you go to the VAF post you made today; look about 5 or 6 posts earlier in that thread; you’ll see my post with my HX settings for the Trio. Some are quite different than 100%. Bob Thanks Bob! I did just that and printed it off. (obviously you can ignore my post on the GRT board). I'll chan...

Re: When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing ro

A new observation: the wing rocking occurs when the HX/HXr is driving the TT either in GPSS Nav mode and Heading Mode. I didn't check that before. This suggests to me that I should be able to 'tune' that out using the HX/HXr gain settings. I've played with them before and noticed little or no differ...

Re: When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing ro

I have a TRIO - HX - G420W in an RV10. Works absolutely great. If you want the settings I use I can go out to the airport and copy them. I have no idea how similar or different the settings should be for a TT. Bob Bob, I would be interested in your settings for the TRIO. I've been thinking this is ...

Re: When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing ro

GRT Jeff, I now have a Demo file with multiple instances of the Trutrak being driven by the GPSS signals coming directly from GNS430w and from the same signal being passed through HXr. There was an attempt to video the same period covered by Demo file so the actual switching could be viewed as it wa...

Re: Voltage Readings

I assume this is still valid. Having had the same set of problems with accurate voltage displays, I'm intend to configure 2 analog inputs as described below to display bus voltages on my 2 bus, 2 batt, 2 alternator Z-14 system. Confirmations or comments welcome. Thanks. Many moons later, I finally g...

Jeff, based on your note, the only thing different than the defaults are 4 gain settiing set at 70%. I’ll change them to 100% for the next flight.

Any other suggestions?

Re: When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing ro

I’ve uploaded a video to YouTube showing the wing rocking in various AP modes here: https://youtu.be/EU7qM2eBF8I You’ll see that the only mode where the wings rock is when the TruTrak is getting GPSS and Vertical Guidance signals from the HXr (this corresponds to ‘NAV 1’ selected with ‘EXT LS VS’ di...
