Hi everyone,

I've had a few wandering and 'S'ing' issues due to bad auto pilot settings.
We have the AC12 auto pilot computer on our 2014 415. The auto-tune function seemed to help but is not perfect.
I'm wondering if there is anyone who is happy with their settings in most conditions and wouldn't mind sharing them.
The ones that im interested in most are on Low response...

-Rudder (gain) on Low
-Counter Rudder on Low
-Auto Trim

Thanks a lot, any help appreciated!

Hi Jeremy,
the Question is, what kind of Compass you are using for the Autopilot? Fluxgate or Gyro?
best regards

Firstly you have to change that thing! It’s a big difference between the fluxgate and the gyro! Use the Gyro compass and you‘ll see it!
