Good enough 2 axix autopilots?

Has anyone put in a good enough 2 axis autopilot in their Aircam?

Something to hold the wings level and the altitude/pitch constant?

We have installed an iLevil autopilot with an Aircraft Automation trim tab kit. Using an EcoTrim head unit to control the trim tabs, but can be done all from an App. Haven't flown yet, but company support has been excellent. Both companies owned by brothers, out of the same building

I'm fairly certain it will work out great. I've met those folks at Osh Kosh and seen their products. Looks good!

The fact that they have a short YouTube video show it running in their Aircam makes me think it's a winner!

Can you confirm you have a 3rd axix, i.e. a yaw damper as part of the setup? That seems to be the missing link in making the other two axis work.
