approach, autopilot, LNAV, Minimum, VNAV General Aviation
When flying an RNAV approach with all autopilots inop but with vertical deviation indication and maybe even a flight director available, can I still hand fly the approach down to the LNAV VNAV minima or do I have to revert to the LNAV only minimum?

Of course you can hand-fly an instrument approach unless there is something on the approach chart, in your aircraft or RNAV equipment limitations or in an operational OpSpec that requires a coupled approach.
What made you think otherwise? I’m really confused by this one.
