Now there is a proper T layout of instruments, very professional indeed!

Atto: Trigger Fire ?!!!! :))))))))))) Cool GCS with realistic looking dials , may be bottom row/ description may be layed out differently IMHO , not sure if the Vario meter makes good sense with - + 20 deg going almost all the way round

typo deg > ft/min

Trigger fire it worded badly. It's not to trigger an actual fire, or to "fire" a rocket, its to "fire" the trigger where "fire" is being used in the start event sense. That's my interpretation at least.

The ft/min is x100, so 20 is actually 2000 ft/min. If it's written properly it should evolve to x1000 when it reaches the maxima or minima.

I do have one question though, why? Doesn't Atto already have a GCS? For a commercial AP you would want to use the provided GCS not have to make one, in my opinion.

Hi all,

Dean provides an excellent GCS that ships with his Attopilot. This one is a free (sort of) and open source alternative that supports my failsafe PTZ device. It's very beta and is really just intended to demonstrate what can be done. I don't think it offers any particular advantages over the official GCS, and it does come with a few caveats.

It does generate a nice KML though - fully timestamped.

This is a wording from Atto manual I think.
Flexipilot Official Expression is 'activating the trigger'. The trigger can be Disabled, Enabled (Ready for Action) or Active.
