Hi,

I have now performed the dockside settings and the seatrial including fine tuning. The autopilot is now working much better especially on sail but is still sometimes "restless" (wheel turning 5 - 10 cm back and forth) when motoring. During the test there was not much wind and the sea was quite flat. I also changed the response to level 1 instead of the default 3. Is there still something I should try with the parameters or should I consider rate compass in addition to RFC35 as Jesper is doing in "Improvements to autopilot".

Regards,
Heikki

Hi,

A reply to my own question of Dec 16, 2016:

In the manual the "restlessness" of the wheel is obviously called hunting and this can be adjusted by setting the Rudder deadband to 1 deg instead of Auto. I did this and the autopilot is now working fine.

Regards,
Heikki
