Alabeo 310 Autopilot

Recommended Posts

Hi team!

Im struggling with the Alabeo C310R autopilot. Im unable to get it to couple to nav mode. It dosent matter if its on GPS or VOR mode. The only modes that im able to get it right its with the Alt hold, and the pitch hold mode. Im looking forward to look some tips on how to make this AP work, or im open to made a gauge change and add the Bendix AP of the default C172.

Wow. I have failed to notice the Alabeo offering.  I have flown two versions of the MIlviz C310R since about 2012 and it is excellent.  Are you flying with default Alabeo gauges?

Sorry I am not able to help you.  I fly the Milviz 310 Redux and have one instance of it installed with Reality XP GTN gauges and another instance with Reality GNS gauges.

There are four steps you have to do to get the nav function to work in the Alabeo C310R. First step, on the autopilot, make sure the "AP ON" switch is turned on.  second step, Below the GPS is a row of switches, the center switch under the "AP" heading has "NAV1", "OFF" and "NAV2".  With this switch you can chose which nav radio controls the AP Nav function or have it off, select "NAV1" or "NAV2".  Third step, on the autopilot, turn the "NAV" switch on. Forth step, Push the ""PUSH HEADING NAV" knob located in the center of the autopilot in.  The autopilot will track the nav radio you selected in step 2.  I'm not a real world pilot, real world pilots may do this in a different order.  You may want to do steps 2,3,and 4 first and once everything is setup, turn on the AP. Hope this helps and if you need more help, let us know.

Hi Jhon,

 

Thank you so much, I have been doing all that except the "push" button on the AP knob. Is there any way also to make the AP fly the heading specified with the heading selector? Or we have to turn it manually with the knob?

 

Im just so used to the Garmin GFC 500 that this old AP is just driving me crazy 😝

I’m thinking you leave the “HEADING NAV” button pushed in and turn off NAV switch on the AP. Haven’t flown this one in a while. Try it and if it doesn’t work let me know.
