Just spotted a Briton B-4 used autopilot on BARNSTORMERS in the AVIONICS section, $500. Don't know if it is adaptable to an Ercoupe. Time to do some research with your local avionics shop about the B-4.

If you are starting from scratch, maybe you can get an approval for this King system

Friendly FSDO..... isn't that an oxymoron?

I believe you are correct re. a Brittain autopilot. Unfortunately they are not currently available. I contacted Brittain a while back and they indicated they "might" go back into production but with the advances in technology and new systems I very much doubt it. I would love to get an autopilot in my Alon but there aren't any available for out 'coupes. It might be possible to do with a friendly FSDO via a 337.

I know, or at least was told, that Brittain had an autopilot that was installed in an Ercoupe in the past but have not seen or heard of anything recent. Has anyone done an installation? I am looking for heading and altitude hold mostly. In IMC conditions, I would think it would simplify the pilot's work load. 
I'm not sure that I would intentionally fly into hard IMC but I surely would like to be able to get out if I got trapped.
