  • Type A3-A Autopilot

    The type A3-A autopilot is a very simple electronic autopilot used in the C-47, PV-2, Waco Gliders, and many others. It only has two main controls, which take the form of two knobs located in the top right and left corners. The left corner is aileron control, while the right is elevator. There is no rudder control, so the gyroscope does not rotate horizontally.
