Can the AP interface nose up and nose down be my trim control? If so could you share the wire diagram? Thanks
To level set:
- The SkyView autopilot module does indeed provide the roll and pitch trim servo switching functions. It also incorporates a 3 second time out to mitigate trim running away. Any other trim controller (VPX, etc.) are not required or desired.
- When using the SkyView autopilot module in autopilot, you also get ďauto trimĒ. If the autopilot servo finds the the trim out of wack it will move the trim servo - just like you would do manually.
- You need both roll and pitch autopilot servos and at least a pitch trim servo. The autopilot servo will not function as a trim servo. While it will compensate for not having a trim servo it will only do this when the autopilot is on. This is not acceptable (think takeoff and landing).
