    16.4 Update Feedback

    A follow-up on various AP pitch settings, I set all of the non-glideslope pitch values to something close to the minimums and flew in some light chop to see the effects. Still doing a bit of altitude hunting with over and under shoots, however the VSI did not show any numbers higher than 300-400...

    16.4 Update Feedback

    I went out today in smooth air to try some more adjustments, the Lost Motion Compensation was interesting setting it to 2 resulted in a short period pitch oscillation, 1 reduced it some, and zero stopped it. I already reduced the G-Error-Limit and G-Error-Gain with not much of an observable...

    16.4 Update Feedback

    Went out and flew for a couple of hours today to check out the 16.4 SW. No improvement in the pitch control with a light chop, I was seeing 700-800 FPM in the VSI and speed changes of 10-15 knots with the pitch up and down hunting around the altitude bug. I tried some of the adjustments...

    16.4 Update Feedback

    Did the 16.4.0 upgrade today and will test fly it tomorrow. Looking forward to not hearing "BANK ANGLE" anymore. Hopefully I can get a better AP tune with the new guide, the altitude hunting in any kind turbulence is getting old (hysteresis in pretty bad). Not sure why the AP allows such large...

    Dynon and Avidyne IFD

    Updated to 16.4.0 today and could not load a FF flight plan to the IFD over the SykView network. Interestingly, the IDF100 is now working on both iPads. The IDF is showing up on FF Devices and lists receiving flight plans in the capability box (same as SkyView). The other odd item is nether iPad...

    Dynon and Avidyne IFD

    Spent about an hour on trying to get two iPADs with FF and IFD100 apps to work with my SV-D1000 and IFD540. Avidyne 10.3 made some changes to the network setup and operation, so the first error I made was renaming the default IFD network to the SkyView network name. The default IFD network is an...

    Skyview US Aviation/Obstacle Data Update Contents

    My iXpand drive is formatted for exFAT which is not compatible with the FAT32 format required by Dynon. You may want to verify you have FAT32.

    Dynon and Avidyne IFD

    I also tried the Capstone over WiFi for ADS-B data from Skyview to the IFD540 with 10.3 and did not have any success. The ADS-B data from Sykview to Foreflight over WiFi works great, I presume that is not the Capstone format the IFD is looking for. All three devices are running on the SkyView...

    Backup battery isn't working

    The Dynon battery has in integrated BMS board, so it is a bit more than a 3S2P stack of 18650 cells. If you check SV-BAT-320 Specifications in Appendix B of the SV Installation Guide you will see integrated circuit protection is listed, along with a nominal cell voltage of 11.1v. I check the...

    User Data Log field decoding

    Thanks, I did not consider the serial data format as a place to look. Perhaps Dynon can add a note to Appendix F directing folks to Appendix E for data field definitions.

    User Data Log field decoding

    Can anyone advise me where the decoding of User Datalog fields CDI Source Port, AP Engaged, AP Roll Mode, and Transponder Status can be found? I am trying to map the number to a mode selection.

    AP Rolls to Right When Engaged

    Had an incident yesterday when I engaged the AP GNSS/VS mode the AC immediately rolled into a right turn despite already being on course (AC over the magenta line). I was climbing through 5,000 for the altitude bug of 6,500 on a course of 184 with a BTW of 184 and xtrk error of 0.08 nm. The only...

    Share your experience customizing your EMS layout for a chance to win a $100 gift card!

    The link indicates the survey is closed. I did a complete custom EMS layout for my Viking Honda 110 in an RV-12 that included adding a custom AFR sensor definition if Victor is interested in that experience.

    Do I need an audio panel?

    You could check with Maker Plane for the AMX-4A 5-channel audio mixer that was once offered by VX Aviation. You can find the installation manual here: http://54.92.159.85/redmine/documents/20 You could also check with the designer, Vern Little at http://www.huvver.tech/open-source-hardware/...

    Do I need an audio panel?

    A pdf wiring diagram can be found at the following link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1YyRWC6Kt6gHTPgncep-O1S4Jae9i4eOJ/view?usp=sharing You do not need an audio panel to hear annunciators or music, my PM3000 intercom as two separate music input jacks and my Dynon SV-1000 audio is wired to...

    Do I need an audio panel?

    A simple COM-NAV switch will work fine to select the radio audio source feeding the intercom unit. I have two comm radios and a nav radio that are switched using a 3-position (COM1, COM2, NAV), 4 pole switch with a PS Engineering PM-3000 intercom. Radio 2 is a COM/NAV unit, so the MIC input...

    Skyview, IFD and Foreflight integration

    Could you expand on the last comment about multiple devices on SV WiFi not necessarily talking to each other? I presume if Foreflight can talk to the IDF540 over the Avidyne WiFi network, there should be no change in capability by switching it to the SV WiFi network. For unknown reasons...

    Skyview, IFD and Foreflight integration

    Correction to this post, the IFD100 runs on the WiFi, not the BT for the IFD540, BT is only for the external IFD keyboard. I was looking at the "Devices" page of FF earlier today while connected to the SV and IFD 540 and noted the capabilities listed under the 540 included sending FF FPs to the...

    Skyview, IFD and Foreflight integration

    I agree with the frustration trying to synch up the IFD, Skyview, and Foreflight, especially for any Instrument Procedure changes during flight. I was shooting some RNAVs today and basically used FF for looking at the approach plate in order to keep SV Map, SV AP, and the 540 synched for any...

    Skyview network connection fault

    The DATA 2 pair, pins 4 and 8 are SV-Network D-9 pin numbers. You need to look at the RV-12 Electrical diagram for your version of the electronics to trace the wiring for those pins through the AV5000. Typically labeled as EFIS DATA G (SV-Net, pin 8) and EFIS DATA H (SV-Net, pin 4) are signal...
