    Hey guys,

    I recently installed a certified AV30 in my 182. I'm pretty happy with the instrument so far, I'm wondering how many others have had the opportunity to monkey with the AOA feature, and what your thoughts on the feature are? I've followed the instructions and played with it a bit with a couple of test flights, a little tuning left to get done.

    What I find interesting is that the thing starts barking essentially at the same time the horn goes off every time. I realize that should be the obvious outcome, but I'm wondering if this sort of thing actually adds value? I realize AOA is a provocative topic, I'm more interested in discussing this as it relates specifically to the AV30.

    Thanks

    I dont buy their probeless AOA idea. while stall horn would indicate the impending stall, AOA will show the actual L/D max (how much play you have inside the stall horn barking envelop) and how much lift you have remaining. ideally, you will need 2 probes under each wing to get the most value out of it.
