I'm trialling SD as a replacement for Air Nav Pro so though that I'd spend some time entering in as much aircraft data as I could to ensure that it's a complex (and fair) trial. I've attached my AA5-A aircraft file in case anyone would like to use it as a basis for their own planning - remember, the weights and arm etc. are from my aircraft (not the book) which will be differently specified to yours, so make sure you check and amend any figures there as required for yours.
The power profiles are all from the book and I've found that they are close enough to real life (for my engine at least) not to worry about - there is a slight bit of rounding (up) here and there when I was calculating from US Gallons to Litres per hour. Check also the safety minima - 8% is my personal limit, others prefer 5% or 10%.
