Product Description

Add a full-featured two-axis AutoPilot to your SkyView system for $1500. Really!

A SkyView System becomes a full-featured dual-axis autopilot for the incremental cost of servos ($750 each), saving $1,000's over the cost of a separate autopilot system.

COMPATIBILITY: The existing Dynon servos used with the D10/D100 Series are be compatible with the SkyView System. There are seven wire leads on each Servo; five of them are used with the D10/D100 Series. SkyView will use all seven wires, with the extra two wires used to add a second network connection for redundancy.

IMPORTANT - SERVO FIRMWARE UPGRADE REQUIRED: If you have a servo that was shipped prior to SkyView release (December 1st, 2009), then your servo needs to be upgraded to at least Version 5.2 firmware before they can be used with SkyView. If you have a D10/D100 EFIS, then you should upgrade your servos to 5.2 (or the latest available) before switching to a SkyView System. If you do not have access to a D10/D100 EFIS to perform the upgrade, then your servos will have to be returned to Dynon to be upgraded. If your servos were shipped with Version 5.2 or higher firmware, they will have a sticker that says "SkyView Ready". Please contact support@dynonavionics.com for more information

FEATURES: Every Dynon autopilot can fly magnetic heading, GPS ground track, and horizontal NAV from any connected compatible radio* or GPS. In addition to being able to hold altitude, the autopilot can fly to a new altitude and level off once it arrives. Additional standard features include emergency 180-degree turn capability, control wheel steering, and standard trim sensing and annunciation on all servos used on the pitch axis. And because Dynon’s autopilot is built on its best-selling EFIS systems, it can respect bank angle, airspeed, and G limitations too.

Servos - $750 Each

Dynon Avionics servos are dimensionally identical to other leading servos for drop-in upgradability. Behind the scenes, though, the SV line of servos are all-new. A lightweight aluminum case houses a stainless steel gear train to optimize weight while not sacrificing strength. The servo control arm is captured by a castellated nut and secured by a cotter pin, just like other critical interfaces in your aircraft. Each servo is managed by its own microprocessor, making the servo an active, smart extension of the autopilot. This simplifies the control-surface-to-servo calibration, and prevents the servo from driving itself endlessly like other servos can. As an ultimate mechanical failsafe, a simple and effective shear pin is employed to let you break the servo free of the aircraft control surface in an emergency.

Multiple servos models are available to suit different aircraft control force requirements. The SV32 is rated at 36 in-lb of torque, the SV42 at 55 in-lb, and the SV52** at an astonishing 72 in lb. Servos are also available with with capstan drives for use in aircraft with cable-driven controls.

Mounting kits for popular aircraft models are being developed on an ongoing basis.

For aircraft that Dynon has not yet developed a mounting kit, but which definitely use a servo with output arm (as compared to a cable / capstan drive servo), Dynon has developed a generic kit that includes rod ends and other servo attachment hardware. Note that if you use this kit, you will need to determine an adequate location and mounting method for installing your servos.

See the servo application guide for aircraft/servo configuration information for a variety of aircraft.

In order to make wiring easy, Dynon offers a servo wiring kit:

SV-NET-SERVO: This kit helps wire the autopilot servos. It includes 20" of Tefzel wires: two pairs of twisted 22 gauge network wires, one 22 gauge quick disconnect wire, and two 20 gauge wires for power and ground. Also included are three D9 connectors (one male, two females), 18 pins, a pin insertion tool, shrink tubing, and tie wraps. One kit is required for each servo. A crimping tool is required (not sold by Dynon) to attach the pins to the wires.

See the servo application guide for aircraft/servo configuration information for a variety of aircraft.

* As of SkyView firmware version 2.0, this includes serial devices, including the Garmin SL30 NAV radio and all GPS units with NMEA or Aviation Format serial output. ARINC 429 support coming soon.
** SV52 servos will be available at a later date
