Press the (i) in the lower right to set up your W&B constants. Post here if you have any wishes/desires/complaints.

Uhhh... so, why did you move it here?? The app is free. Nobody's asking anyone to buy anything or selling anything... It's just a tool like a manual that people can use or not.

Oh. Ok. I'll make that change in the next week or two. (apple takes forever to approve stuff.). Can you post a 702p w&b page I can look at? I don't even remember where I got the numbers I have, since I bailed from the douchy forum a year and a half ago.

Your Xm and avidyne are still going strong! Thank you!! :)

Hi Bill,

You had asked why this post was moved so I'll advise on our guidelines. The "Downloads" area is intended to be a "go-to" FTP than a forum. Postings that encourage replies and exchanges are moved out into other areas. I used the standard forum format simply because it is familiar and easy to navigate. Your post could have gone into "other" but I felt it would be better off here.

We are different from the "other site" in that the buy and sell area will highlight "new material" just like the other forums. We also do not expire listings until withdrawn by the owner.

From the number of replies and exchanges with Members - it looks like they did indeed find your offering. It's great of you to be offering this to Members at no cost and many of us appreciate all the work that goes into this kind of software development.

If you don't mind feedback, I'd make the software so it will work for any Aerostar, like 600, 601, supers etc, You would need a "setup" module so owners could enter their own aircraft's particular data. The setup module would be a one-time program that would populate a data set of variables. (Aux tank or not, filler adapter or not, empty parameters, mid-seat(s)-removed.

One of our Members has done a lot of beta testing and development team feedback. He has offered to donate some time if you are game to develop a more flexible product. I think most Members would be happy to pay something for it.

Forum Queen, If you download the app, click on the "INFO" tab top right. I think you will find that the app does all you are asking for.

Nice simple App
Thanks

What Frank says is true. You can set your own weights. Just not the limits.

I think I could add a selection that chooses the type of plane which would default the limits Etc, or allow custom parameters. But I think the 600,600p,700 are all the same, aren't they? It's just the 702 that's different, right?

The point was really to give me a way to quickly calculate my own w&b. Apple is lame that they don't really allow for personal apps - everything must be on the App Store or it times out and requires all kinds of funky digital signatures to keep working.

I really have no desire to charge for it. Even at $10 it could sell a hundred copies and still barely cover a full tank of gas. What's the point?! Maybe I'll add ads to it if I can see a way to do it unobtrusively. That would let me earn ad credits for promoting things that actually DO make money.
