Dedicated Autopilot Control
Dedicated controller for advanced Garmin autopilot modes
Control wheel for speed selection
Dedicated heading/track and altitude knobs
LVL mode button commands automatic recovery from steep or unusual attitudes
Allows for stand-alone operation of the autopilot
The GMC 507 control panel offers a dedicated interface for the GFC 500 autopilot in certifciated aircraft as well as G3X autopilots in experimental and light sport aircraft.
GMC 507 allows pilots to control the advanced features offered by Garmin digital autopilot systems, including advanced autopilot modes such as indicated airspeed hold, independent flight director and third-axis yaw damper (when installed with appropriate servos). While these features are available without a separate controller on G3X Touch flight displays, installing the GMC 507 allows for stand-alone operation of the autopilot.
Plus, the control wheel integrated into the GMC 507 makes for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments, while separate knobs allow twist-control of heading/track and altitude. And for added safety, the panel’s advanced LVL mode button commands automatic recovery from steep or unusual attitudes, enabling the autopilot to return your aircraft to straight-and-level flight.
|When installed with G3X Touch flight displays, the GMC 507 offers alternative, dedicated autopilot controls. While autopilot features can be selected using the touchscreen controls on G3X Touch flight displays, this unit allows for easier pitch, vertical speed and airspeed adjustments by using the control wheel. Additionally, separate knobs allow easy twist-control of heading/track and altitude. And for added safety, the controller’s dedicated LVL mode button commands automatic recovery from steep or unusual attitudes, prompting the autopilot to return the aircraft to straight-and-level flight.|
