+VIDEO Levil Aviation has announced a completely new way to operate an autopilot. The iLevil AP is a wirelessly controlled, trim-tab based autopilot system controlled by an iPad or smartphone.
The iLevil AP is an upgrade to the existing iLevil AW, a remotely mounted, all-in-one wireless avionics solution enabling a glass cockpit on an iPad, Android, or display of choice.
Levil said the iLevil AP integrates all the autopilot computations inside the iLevil AW shell, removing the necessity to install an additional control head on the panel. It controls small RC servos attached to small trim tabs that can be either riveted or attached using strong double-sided adhesive.
The iLevil AP offers features such as Heading Hold, Altitude Hold, Altitude Climb and Descend, Auto-Trim, Trim Adjustment and Navigation Mode.
“This is the most responsive autopilot I have ever tested and the easiest to install. This will truly change the way the experimental world views autopilots,” said Ruben Leon, creator of the iLevil AP.
Ananda Leon, developer of the Levil Aviation App, said, “More capability. More ways to integrate. Less cost and down time. Say goodbye to bulky traditional servos. You can upgrade to a two-axis autopilot solution for less than $1k and less than 1lb.”
Levil Aviation is releasing the new iLevil AP at Oshkosh 2021 at a discount. It will retail for $1895 after the show.
