Adding Autopilot onto VC Dash

Recommended Posts

I would like a better autopilot for the Carenado C310R. I would like to add the autopilot from the Carenado C182. I've been able to get it to load as a Window, but it doesn't power up. I would also like to add it under the GPS on the dash in the virtual cockpit. Is this possible? I would prefer to have the Garmin GFC 500 AP, but I don't see that anyone has reproduced this yet.

Thoughts?

Sorry, cannot be done.. best you can do is what you have already attempted, namely to replace an existing radio and work around the 3d knobs which cannot be removed.
