I found thebplane much easier to fly on the gauges using a Trutrak electronic
ADI. It is not so twitchy in pitch as it factors in verticle speed.

I think I have a 3 1/8" one in the hangar. Is that the size you are looking for? Do you need a lighted one?

I have an RC Allen AI (3-1/8”) that is around 10 years old but only has an an hour or two of time in service and is still in the original shipping box. It is for a zero panel tilt, and unbeknownst to me at the time, my 170 panel is tilted 7 degrees. Full disclosure: I spoke to RC Allen at Oshkosh this year and they recommended a full overhaul after sitting that long.
