I have read that any auto pilot system should be able to be over ridden by a manual input by the pilot. Not the case with the Max8. Circuit breaker has to be
switched off. The article below is interesting. Wonder if the Max8 may have a version 2.0 anti hijack system embedded. Probably not.
But just the name, 'Uninterruptible Autopilot', kinda spooks a non aviator.
