Hi

Could you please re-enable the automatic flightmode?

I know, it has been removed in version (4.0.522), but i think in the last 2 years the hardware become better and you could now detect increasing speed and height.

Thank you

Knud

Hi Knud, 

I have no idea why you conclude automatic flightmode is not available?! It works as long as you do not turn off or on flightmode manually during the current session.

Hi Rob

Sorry, but on my last trips it did not work automatically. I always had to press the depart button after departing in the air.

during my next flight I will check it again.

On both my desktop and my tablet, EV now start up in flight mode right away??

Desktop (definitely not flying) runs 929, tablet in the plane runs 922.

Not sure if relevant, both get GPS and traffic information from stratux.

If you manually start flight mode, you have to manually exit to get out of flight mode. Thereafter automatic operation will resume until you at any point manually start flight mode. Note that breadcrumb recording is NOT limited to when you are in flight mode, bread crumbs are recorded whenever EV is running (so your taxi route is recorded, for example, and even if you are just sitting at home "playing" with EV, your position is continuously being recorded as a breadcumb file). Also starting or ending Flight Mode (either automatically or manually) does not cause a take-off or landing to be recorded (start of a flight and end of a flight are determined by an analysis of the breadcrumb file). Essentially (at least as far as the user is concerned) "flight mode" now just turns on the Info Boxes, turns on auto-recentring after 30(?) seconds, allows the map to rotate (if you have selected "track up"), and hides the buttons that appear along the bottom of the map screen, etc. (It probably also tweaks a few internal parameters, perhaps such as priorities between internal processes, etc, but the user does not need to worry about that!)
