RE: [DG11] EVo auto pilot pump
Hi Tony,
Thanks for the enquiry.

The answer is yes, too large a hydraulic pump - meaning a pump that outputs too high a flow rate - will move the steering cylinder too quickly and this will lead to rapid rudder movements, oversteering and poor autopilot performance.

This FAQ found here may also help too.

regards

Derek
