When HX (now HXr) is driving TT AP it constantly wing rocks

(This is a new summary post of a thread in the HX forum with new information added. It seems more appropriate under autopilot) At some point in the first 1,000 hours on this installation of (3) HX systems, a G430w, and a TruTrak AP in an RV10 this wing rocking began. I don't recall this being a prob...

How can I configure the HXr default startup screen?

After 1,000 hours with 3 HXs, I swapped one out for a larger screen HXr. Very Nice Upgrade! After 100+ hours on the HXr it would be very desirable for the HXr to startup configured in the same way it was shutdown. Can I do that? How? That is how my other 2 HX screens function. I setup my HXr screen ...

The altitude setting knob is overly sensitive to pressing

After 1,000 hours with 3 HXs, I swapped one out for a larger screen HXr. Very Nice Upgrade! After 100+ hours on the HXr, I've found the RH knob or altitude setting knob is overly sensitive to being pressed to confirm altitude and climb rate/speed. Over sensitive in the sense that one press often res...

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

I had to step away from this issue due to some other electrical issues but the problem persists despite a HXr upgrade. (after posting this it occurred to me that this would best be posted under Autopilot. So a new single post is now posted there with a summary of notes from this thread) There is one...

Re: EGT display on EFIS - 1 of 6 cylinders displays differen

I have yet to go through the troubleshooting guide. After reading it, I will probably end up swapping in a new probe which I suspect will fix it. However, I’ve attached 2 photos: 1) The first shows a cruising situation with the EGT set to display changes relative to a point in time. Cylinder 6 ‘1F’ ...

EGT display on EFIS - 1 of 6 cylinders displays differently

In the beginning, all 6 cylinder’s EGT bar graph, as sensed by the EIS and displayed on an HX (and now on an HXr as well), looked and functioned normally. At some point cylinder 6 displayed no bar graph value when relatively cold while the other 5 cylinders’ bars displayed nominal values. Once reach...

Thanks Jeff. Found it, flew it, all good again.

Lot’s of change in the UI for the former HX user.

What is the HXr equivalent to the HX’s ‘ARM’ function?

I’ve been fly with several HXs, a G430w and a TruTrak AP. Recently replaced one HX with an HXr. During my initial attempts at flying an LPV approach using the procedures I used on the HX, I am unable to find the ‘ARM’ function or figure out what it’s equivalent is. (I have a call back from tech supp...

Re: When HX is driving TT AP it constantly banks left and ri

I have played with the HX steering gain but not recently. I'll try some extremes and see what I get. Regarding the various modes: There is 'full function 2 axis HX driven mode' where the TT AP displays "EXT LS GS". I assume that is ARINC driven and it is full GPSS steering mode. There is '...

When HX is driving TT AP it constantly banks left and right

I have 1,000 hours on this installation of (3) HX systems and a TT AP in an RV10. This problem occurred sporadically in the past and is only noticeable in calm air. Now it's a constant problem in calm air. When HX is driving TT AP it constantly banks left and right. It seems to be hunting for the ex...
