    Default Autopilot disconnect switch

    I'm wondering where people have put the autopilot disconnect/CWS switch(es) on their installations?

    Center console above trim switch. I figured I will be trimming often and I will be used to reaching down there. Sometimes I just use trim to disconnect. I just bought the same button in use for mic in the stick.

    I just received my grips today and intend to use one of the buttons for a quick disconnect. Otherwise the typical button on the AP control panel.

    Phil you can see mine in this picture , the big red button switch located next to the throttle. when activating the A/P shutoff switch always confirm it did what you wanted by checking the autopilot control head .
