    I really hope that someday there will be some sort of 'EXPERT' mode for the Pilot App.
    Getting a bit annoyed with explaining pop ups.
    The short messages are OK, but I'd rather see indicators than a message. For the landing gear I would actually like to see a signal light on the Screen that's green when down and red when up, rather than a message that disappears after a sec.

    And the huge pop up after pressing RTH that's blocking up your screen during the entire ride back, is especially terrible.

    there is this company with the sdk and are due to release an app for us. you might tell them and they will be able to intergrate the requests. probably would be cool to have it sticky so we can give fast feedback and stay informed...

    The message SD Card Full is actually very helpful :)
    The reason for RTH in this case. And nearly lost the SD card when I changed it (flee jumping).

    Lots of stickies up there at the moment (too many,I will do a clean up soon) and they are usually reserved for forum related, or long term threads that do not really expire. That being said, you can always make a specific thread with a detailed title and if it gathers enough attention and lasts long enough, we can sticky it for a short time. Important threads usually stay towards the top anyway. When they do that I give Em a boost to sticky.

    I can not say I completely agree though. Many of the pop ups are helpful indicators. I guess it would be nice to be able to select how intrusive they are. Maybe a size or location setting for the pop up itself.

    yea, that would be great.

    But the RTH pop up should definitely be 'switch offable' :)

    I used to do RTH a lot and use it as a cruise control while panning around and concentrating on the frame. As it is now, with the pop up it's hard to frame at all.
