Does anyone have ballpark settings for the Dynon autopilot for an RV-8? I realize each airplane is different but would like to get close before I do the tuning procedure. I have an Advanced Flight Systems EFIS with the Dynon servos. Here’s the chart below of the default configuration in the manual:

I have a 180 HP RV-8 with a SkyView Touch system with Dynon SV-32 servos. The default pitch & roll autopilot settings work well for my RV-8. Once in awhile it will hunt just a little bit in smooth air, probably because the airmass is slowly ascending or descending. Tracking works well. Here are screenshots of the settings:
