    Users who are found to promulgate FAKE NEWS on the forum in regard to this issue, intentional or otherwise, may find their access terminated. It is your responsibility to provide references to bona fide sources.

    FAKE NEWS, in this regard, is that which is posited by organisations, media, etc., that is repeated on the forum, or used to support personal opinion/hypothesis posted by users - FAKE NEWS is not necessarily the personal opinion/hypothesis being posted in itself, any issues with such should be challenged respectfully.

    IN ADDITION it seems that conspiracy theories are finding their way onto the forum. This is not the place for such content. Users who post it may find their access limited or permanently suspended. Please leave it where you find it.

Peter Foertham has posted a video that shows another way to link up an electric autopilot with a wind vane steering system.


I know a lot of people see a lot of sense in using the power of he windvane and the direction of the electric autohelm working in common. I have rarely found a situation where the Windpilot isn't adequate by itself even in very light winds.
