From those that have done this, is there a relative advantage in having the ability to select just one axis of the autopilot? Itís not a difficult thing to do, but should I have that option, + extra switch? Iím trying to imagine when I would want one axis without the other. My vertical autopilot will have the capability of VS, IAS, or VNAV for climbs or descents.
I had only the one and went back and added both since the other is a short cut on the EFIS for level flight and direction along with the 180 deg turn
