  1. This is just some info on a Garmin autopilot. I just installed dual Garmin G3X touch screen EFIS systems in my SW and it has been great. All G3X systems contain a very sophisticated autopilot which can be operated within the EFIS or with a separate analog stand alone analog unit. My CT had a Trutrak autopilot however could not be integrated with the G3X. I had been thinking of installing the garmin servos for some time to take advantage of a much better autopilot. I discussed this with Garmin and they said that the servos would not work in the CT. Prior to talking to Garmin I had extensively researched the drawings and torque forces of the servos and was sure they were wrong. I purchased the servos and panel control unit and was able to easily install them in the original brackets, everything fit perfectly and with the Can Buss data system only 5 wires per servo . The roll servo does not need a torque enhancer due to the servos having 60 in lbs of torque as opposed to 30 for Trutrak. Also the Garmin servos have 0 force resistance when not in use which makes the flight controls lighter. The flight tests went very well and the autopilot has functions only found in very expensive high performance aircraft. According to Flight Design I have the only CT to have this system. I am posting this to inform others that this is another option for at least ELSA.
  2. As a new plane CT owner, I feel a little hesitant but lets try this. Btw this is a repost of what I originally thought was an HS34 problem ... turns out it may not. So here is the situation, I get a 'COM FAILURE' on my Garmin SL30 but only when connected to the HS34. Saw this post http://www.vansairforce.com/community/showthread.php?t=82204 which lends me to believe there is a problem with the serial connection from the SL30 to the HS34. To me, taking the HS34 seems like a really bad answer because I loose tons of functionality. So here are my questions ... Anybody else has seen this error on their SL30? Shall I really just try to re-seat the SL30? From which side do you get behind the center panel, take out the EFIS or EMS? Thanks for your help to these newbie questions, Robert aka TheFrisco
