WH Autopilot company

Just tried to reach Wil Hamm @ W-H Autopilot and the website domain is available and the voice mailbox is full. I was prepared to purchase an autopilot from him - had some components and was looking to get the rest.

Does anyone have any information about the status of this company? All indications do not look good!

Re: WH Autopilot company

I just spoke to Mr Hamm. He is still in business but has turned off the website because “I have all the business I like”.

I have found Mr Hamm to be a bit quirky but very helpful when I talk to him - he typically answers the phone himself. I am glad he is still in business - highly rated robust equipment.

Re: WH Autopilot company

I finally received the last pieces of the auto-pilot from Mr Hamm several months ago. I got the feeling he isnít interested in new business but canít be sure.

Keep trying the phone numbers - he does answer on occasion.

There's usually used parts on ebay for these autopilots. He must have sold a bunch.
