Calibrate the ADAHRS!

Sorry I've not updated my situation since finishing the paint job.
After some off-line communication with Rob and some "investigating" I decided to re-calibrate the Dynon ADAHRS.

Tech Writing or Development?

Today's technical world is moving so fast that manuals are left way back in the dust compared to software / technological developments.
Small companies (as is AFS, and I imagine Dynon) have to decide...

Bob,
Maybe I wasn't clear in what I wrote. The HDG bug on the EFIS (or the AP Control Head) does control the AP. But the HDG / TRK from the Flight Plan does not.

Quite possibly, the little resistor...

Magenta Line is There

Bob,
Yes the magenta line is displayed on the EFIS. Any altitude I put in via the ALT bug on the EFIS is commanded. HDG is commanded; the AP just doesn't lock on to the HDG / TRK when I get within 30...

I've tried your way. Before the July update, it would work that way. After the July update it won't.

FLYING W/GTN-650, AFS-5600T & AP

Let's see if I have the buttonology correct.

1. GTN-650 Create FP
2. EFIS - FPL>GNAV-1

I've Held Off...
