Re: Quick Video from last week

Nice day out there. Because I'm always critical...I do have one observation...your poor autopilot is overworked. Try turning the GAIN or RESPONSE down. I don't like to see them work so hard. It doesn't look like the heading is changing, yet the pilot is sure busy. Reaching on a fine day like that should be easy steering. It will last much longer. So will the batteries. Less noise.

Just a tip.

I will definitely do that. Thanks for the advice.

What's an autopilot?
