Frequently Asked Questions
Is it easy to override?
Yes, you can easily override the iLevil AP and the trim tabs with your joystick since there aren’t mechanical links with your flight controls. Control links and cables are always free to move. You don’t need to use additional friction since there are no conventional servos installed. No external Autotrim is necessary
How do you disconnect it?
Since the system works with trim tabs, auto-trim is built into the iLevil AP. No additional installation is required. The airplane will always be in trim following autopilot disconnection
What's the battery life?
The unit runs as long as it's plugged into the aircraft. It also has a backup battery that lasts 3.5 hours and charges via USB
What's the weight and dimension?
The iLevil AP sensor box weighs 11oz (311g) with dimensions of 3.2" x5" x1.1" (8x12x3 cm). Each individual Trim kit (including servo) weighs 5.3oz (150g). The dimensions of 1 trim tab is 12 "long, the moving part is 2" wide, and the servo placement is 4 "wide. The thickness of the carbon fiber blade is 0.04"
Is it easy to install?
Yes, the iLevil AP facilitates installation with remote GPS and ADS-B antennas, and power inputs for 12V to 28V systems. Compatible with a wide range of apps, tablets, and mobile devices, the AP is the ideal all-in-one solution for a wide variety of aircraft where weight, space, and cost are important. Trim tabs and servos can be bolted or riveted to the aileron and elevator, but the best option is to use industrial-strength waterproof adhesives, no holes need to be drilled. CONTROLLED SURFACES SHOULD BE RE-BALANCED TO AVOID FLUTTER. The Trim-tab kit includes a wiring harness that connects to the iLevil AP and provides power to the servos. For a more in-depth explanation watch the video below from our trim tab partner, Aircraft Automation
Can I follow a flight plan navigation?

What happens when it is off?
When the autopilot is off, the trim tabs are still active. The system will correct for excessive or unwanted pilot inputs beyond a roll or pitch limit
