Source Select

Postby MolsonB » Sun Aug 28, 2016 7:03 pm

What is the point of having the source select? I have HXr and Mini-AP.
Correct me if I'm wrong, having the autopilot connected just to the Mini-AP serial port, the HXr can control it through the Interlink? The only case would be if my mini or interlink went down, which I'd be landing anyways.

Pretty much a backup. If you were in IMC when your mini quit, with the nearest airport 200 nm away, you might be glad to be able to change the 'source' to a working box.

Ok that's what I was thinking.
I don't have any serial outputs left on the HXr for extra autopilot. I'll only be flying VFR for the next 3-4 years anyways. Hopefully by then, there is will a 'blackbox' that can expand the serial ports via Ethernet cable.
