HSI Question

  • Hi,

    I just started flying the Arrow III today and very much enjoying it, but I have noticed one oddity, which may be answered elsewhere, but I can't find it. Is there a way to connect the HSI to the 2nd VOR? I am using the GPS 100, if that matters.

  • @jsbrewster1 I believe no, the HSI is connected to nav 1. However there is a switch (left of the key) to the have the AP follow nav 2 IF that’s what you’re looking for.

  • Yes, I found that, and I also re-read the manual. It does say it will connect to the KX 170B or to the 530 or 750 if installed. The 2nd VOR is a KX 175B, so by inference it won't connect. But thank you for responding. I guess I either need to choose the DI or fiddle a bit more with the VORs if I always want the HSI to show course. There is a toggle switch beside VOR2 that says NAV/GPS, maybe I'll tinker with that and see if it works, with the AP in heading mode.
