Re: openxvario arduino based variometer/altimeter/hub for op

I don't do much soaring when it's below 10 deg.C so I figured it would be alright. That temperature range is only for the guaranteed accuracy, the operation will be fine to much lower temperatures. If you are thinking of making a TEK tube, a small brass tube blocked at the top end sticking straight ...

My other wish list ite...

A constant low raspy alarm tone when sink rate exceeds a set limit (sink alarm). A climb rate...
