I can vouch for an autopilot, I installed a trio into my kitfox before a very long XC and it made things much easier (if not too easy). That said, I had to disengage it 30 mins before each destination to regain a feel for the plane. But I had low hours in it at the time. A later update allowed me to set a min airspeed in climb profile so it didnt try to climb against a downdraft/mountain wave and stall or overtemp.
Make sure there is no binding of anything when done. Also, once I accidentally bumped the altitude hold button in some light chop, didnt realize it, and thought I had a control problem! I even worked out a plan to slowly descend to farmland ahead, then realized what happened.
