Cutting Edge Technology Without the Cutting
  • AV-30 fits in your existing 3” panel slot seamlessly. By mounting from behind, it preserves the “round dial” look, and eliminates the need for cutting or replacing your panel.
Probeless Angle of Attack (AOA) - Avoid Stalls
  • The AV-30 alerts you visually and aurally if you approach a dangerous AoA. AoA is calculated by comparing the aircraft’s pitch, flight path, and G-loading.

These units are awesome! Don’t forget the breaker. Order the AV mag while you are in there. (Works fine without, but I want to be sure.) simple instructions. I liked one so much I installed 2!

First one was defective. Contacted uavionix and they sent another. Got it in yesterday. Took it (Glastar) up yesterday did two 360s left and two right to get the internal magnetometer calibrated. Everything seems to be working fine now.

Quite a good devise, had to call the factory several times but they had a lot of understanding and cleared up what the 100 + pages of instructions couldnt make clear.

At first I thought I made a mistake buying two of these, but after flying with them for 6 months, I have to say I honestly love them and Im glad I stuck with them. The customer support has been amazing and attentive. My biggest headache was excessive heading drift, for which uAvionix has just announced a software fix. It will prevent the unit from capturing a bad calibration on start-up / shut-down and prevent the problem. Im excited for it to arrive. The units can be trimmed by the user to calibrate any of the numbers that may be off from your steam gauges, such as airspeed and altitude. After trimming, my numbers stay dead-on. I paired mine with the Davtron temp probe and I really enjoy being able to see TAS and OAT readouts directly on the unit. These are great little units to get you by in style and on a budget.

Beware of updated model # that has upgraded internal circuit protection. Old part #s are still being stocked and should be changed out.

Bench tested only so far, but appears to be everything hoped for. Moderately easy to set up.

Pilotshop assumes no responsibility or liability for any issue or problem which may arise from any repair, modification or other work done from this knowledge base. Any product eligibility information provided here is based on general application guides and we recommend always referring to your specific aircraft parts manual, the parts manufacturer or consulting with a qualified mechanic.

Q: At manual for AV-30 written that IAS units can be only KTS and MPH. Is it possible to add KMH? The same question fot ALT units, it is only Feet. Is it possible to add Meters?

Per the manufacturer: these will not display KMH.

Q: Good morning, I'm planning to visit the 2020 Sun Fun and pick up an AV-30 CERTIFIED at your booth, obviously ordered in time. Do you think the instrument will be ready certified for that time?

There is a certified version of this unit. Please see Part# 11-17556. We are expecting first delivery of the certified version in January of 2020. Part # 11-17555 will not become certified, it will only be for experimental so for certified applications, be sure to order 11-17556.

Q: The manual indicates the AOA has a slow speed limit of 35 knots. I am looking at putting it on an experimental aircraft with a stall speed of 30 statute miles an hour. What happens to the instrument reading when you go below 35 knots?

Because the limit is 35 knots, it will not display anything until it is over that speed.

Q: Does the Uavionix AV-30 unit show bank angle (or at least some of the common points 15/30/60)?

No. This unit does not show bank angle.

Q: Will the AV-30 link with a Tru-Trk auto pilot like the 2020 planned S-Tec adapter can it be used on other brand auto pilot?

At this moment we do not have this information available as Uavionix has not released this information.

Q: When in HSI mode can this Uavionix AV30 unit display vertical guidance from a GPS for an LPV approach?

Per Uavionix: there is no vertical guidance at all. There is only the horizontal steering indicator when in DG Mode.

Q: Will the AV-30 unit show speed limits (Green, White, Yellow arc, Vne red line) etc. I didnt find it in the specifications)

Yes, the gauge will have a green and red arc for the indicated airspeed.

Q: Does this pair with the Garmin 495 GPS?

Yes, The Garmin 495 provides NMEA output that can be received and displayed by the AV-30. The AV-30 supports NMEA protocol at baud rate speeds of 4800 and 9600, while "Aviation/moving map" protocol is fixed at a 9600 baud rate.

Q: Does the AV30 have an internal GPS?

No. Per the installation manual, it can function without a GPS signal, however it will require a GPS signal for full functionality. The GPS signal must be supplied to the unit, it is not internal.

Q: Does AV30 (Experimental) pair with the Garmin 150XL GPS?

Yes, the Garmin 150XL sends AVI aviation format and NMEA format that can be displayed by the AV-30.
