      Many of you have been asking, what's up with the new AutoPilot that's suposed to come out?

      Air Lift had the latest prototype in their booth at SEMA 2011 so I figured I would share some info..

      Features Include:

      - 8 User programable ride-height presets

      - Manual control mode

      - User adjustable compresor kick-on / cut-off pressures

      - Auto calibration

      - User adjustable backlight color / brightness

      - Compressor wear-down testing

      - Compressor timer

      - Rise on start

      - User adjustable unit of measurement (PSI/BAR)








      Manual mode:

      We've had a prototype here at our shop since H2Oi and it's pretty sick.

      Is it still pressure based ride height? The V2 take car of the problems of uneven heights cause of pressure differentials? And 3/8 or 1/4 plugs on the manifold? Release date?

      Sorry for the barrage of questions.

      - Yes it's still pressure based.

      - The old system had nearly a 10% margin of error (worse in some cases) and v2 system is down to a 2-3% margin of error. This makes it MUCH more accurate.

      - We've been told the manifold will come in two versions, one with 1/4" PTC ports and the other with 3/8" PTC ports

      - We have secured 15 systems from the first production run, they will ship to our warehouse on December 1st.

      I would probably go with this over accuair elevel if it was available few month ago.

      Need to see some reviews first, worried about how precise presets can be based on PSI alone, i sure hated installing my e-level, took me the longest time

      I was never a fan of v1 autopilot but from what ive seen this is awesome. I really like that the ECU is built into the manifold also

      There's no doubt the manifold/ECU integration is pretty aweseome. Aesthetically and functionally though, i think the AccuAir touch pad is a lot better looking and intuitive. I'm sure after using the new V2 for a little bit you get really used to where the buttons are, but with the AccuAir touchpad you don't have to look, you can tell based on feel.

      You're gonna love installing them. Super quick install compared to the old version.

      Same, but the inaccuracy issues were the main reason why I wasn't a fan of the v1. This one is a whole new ball game.

      The v2 feels a lot more solid in your hands, plus changing the screen color is awesome! Give it a chance

      This looks very tempting, seems my main complaints with the V1 have been solved. I am about to get started on a new project, this may fit the bill. Will can you PM me some pricing info?
