Does an S-TEC 55X autopilot make sense on a DC3?

Recommended Posts

Guest ogeva

I want to make my own private modernized DC3 panel (it has to be my own's and I am scavenging gauges from other copyrighted panels).I have seen pictures of DC3's having Bendix King KAP140 or similar autopilot systems. Does an STEC-55X A/P make sense too? I am not sure if it is certified for DC3 usage...http://online.vatsimindicators.net/825051/142.png

Haven't the foggiest idea, Oren. I could not get a clue from S-Tec's website. I suppose you could shoot them an e-mail query, but then you'll probably get a call from an eager salesman with hopes of a big fat commission wanting to sell you this pricey bit of kit for your Gooney Bird. :-)Bill RambowMAAM-SIM http://www.fssupport.com/maam/maamsim_neon.gif

My Panel is almost ready (now it's just fine lining up the gauges.I used Reality-XP FLT and FLN as well as borrowed some radios from dreamfleet's C177.Overall, my DC3 got an avionics upgrade as follows:1 Bendix King KI256 ADI1 Bendix King KI525 Pictorial HSI1 New Attitude Indicator1 New Directional Gyro2 New altimeters2 New Turn Coordinators2 New Airspeed indicators2 New VSI Indicators2 Bendix King KNI582 RMI Sets1 Bendix King KI206 VOR Indicator2 Bendix King KI203 VOR Indicators1 Bendix King KMA24 Audio Panel1 Bendix King KX155 NAV/COM1 Bendix King KX175B NAV/COM1 Bendix King KR87 ADF1 Bendix King KN62A DME1 Bendix King KT76A Mode C Transponder1 S-TEC System 55X Autopilot1 S-TEC ST360 Altitude Selector/Alerter1 S-TEC ST645 Remote AnnounciatorCaptain panels:DC3_Panel01.jpgDC3_Panel02.jpgFirst Officer's panels:DC3_Panel06.jpgDC3_Panel05.jpgVC Shots:DC3_Panel03.jpgDC3_Panel04.jpghttp://online.vatsimindicators.net/825051/142.png

From what I know, the real question is if S-Tec makes a servo that can handle the control loads of the DC-3. As long as the servo can move the control, makes no difference as to what controls it.
