Default Pictorial Pilot

Does anybody have any experience with this unit ? Does the head really work as a primary flight instrument? Does it require GPS input for the autopilot to work ? How much does the servo assembly weigh ? Does it have a magnetometer in it ? Where does the heading info come from ? Is it easily installed ?

It looks attractive but there is ZERO information on this unit that I can find.

FYI I have a vacuum AI that's dead. I think it's time to "retire" the vacuum system. I was going to order a Dynon but really only need the AI right now. I was thinking of the Pictorial Pilot to replace the AI and get a wing leveler in the bargain (so to speak). I could then order the Dynon later when I remove the vacuum system.

Any opinions on this idea ? Sorry to ask so many questions.

John
