RE: REFLECTOR: Engine Controls
We don't use vernier controls on the throttle for a very good reason.
Instant response to the needs of throttle are limited in many ways using
the vernier. There is just no good reason to use a vernier for the
throttle. The use of a vernier would also not be possible if you elected
to put another throttle control on the co-pilots side which many of our
builders do. After over 8000 hours in general aviation airplanes, I can
speak from experience, it just isn't a good idea.
I can agree with you, however, regarding the mixture control. I
replaced the button lock mixture in the XL with the more precise vernier.
I will look again at the cost difference and see what can be done.
Nav-Aid hasn't a clue as to how their autopilot is installed in a
Velocity. It isn't difficult at all. Just call me when your ready and I
walk you through it.

I'm ordering an ACS A-750 Vernier Prop control shortly. I'm surpised
engine install package includes friction locks throttle and mixture
controls. The vernier only cost $5 more. Comments please.

P.S. Navaid can supply the parts and instruction for mounting
there "autopilot" on a Velocity.
