This is like pulling teeth...

Again, CAN YOU POST THE SCHEMATICS. And do you have any sort of datalog for these flights?

And most importantly, what is the *exact* configuration of the vehicle...

ETA: I don't think I'm overthinking it by positing a relay. You don't want to simply switch power between AP and trim, because pulling power from the AP to use trim means (at least for Dynon) that...

You're just moving the failure point around. You'd have to have a relay in the trim circuit, activated by power to the autopilot servo, and there are ways for *that* to fail, either open or closed. ...

Such as...? A RAC servo with no relay box and no autotrim is about as simple as a circuit could possibly get. Battery-fuse-switch-servo-ground.

There are some additional wires for talkback to an...

Exactly. And this is how autopilots have worked for decades (unless they have autotrim capability). The autopilot doesn't have any idea *what* is causing the aerodynamic force that is pushing it...

And by my count, the 5th or 6th time in this thread that you've been told that.

I'm not sure what you learned from this, though. That an electrical device won't operate at all without electricity?

Can you post the schematic for your system?

Have you actually examined all of the wiring and switches? I mean, pulled inspection panels and bulkheads and whatever and gotten your hands on the wires themselves, looked carefully at them,...

5G, from what I read, is around -70 dBm. Seems like a pretty big reach to your conclusion.

You need a schematic of the circuit. Then try basic troubleshooting first...check all the wires for...

I'm going to make another observation here that is going to seem harsh, but is not intended to be, so bear with me.

It seems that the OP wasn't adequately knowledgeable about his A/P and trim...

OK, so the A/P is on, 2-axis mode, holding altitude via the pitch servo, right?

So what is he "recovering" from?

ETA: Never mind, I think I get it...something ran his pitch trim full nose up while...

Can't you just turn pitch axis autopilot controls off, independently of roll?

I'm also a bit confused here, reading your first post. Are you saying this happens with the autopilot *on*, or off? ...
