Recently I saw an Electronic Flight Information System (EFIS) for full size aircraft which uses a Compac iPac for its display-including the AHI. I would like to attempt creating just the AI which -I think- is reading two axis, pitch and roll. The Futaba PA1, or 2, autopilot senses movement about these axis and sends a signal to the aileron or elevator to correct to level flight. If you took these 2 signals and sent them to..........? Could this be turned into such an instrument. Why? to observe movement when flying with a video TX. With my GPS and Video Display Overlay, I get airspeed. lat/lon, altitude, and direction. Any thoughts? Thanks. Bill

With analog ouptut:
