Hello

I'm unsure if this feature is there anywhere already
(and if so, please disregard and also please help me by pointing this out (on how to enable this) to me).
so:

I'd be happy to enjoy a new feature in SkyDemon, having a small but readable window, placed somewhere in a right-top corner (or configurable),
which would show just the four digits of the UTC time. And to have it big enough for a quick glance.

I can imagine another feature added to it (while the window showing live UTC time being a primary piece),
and that is,
a stop-watch (lap-watch).

For example, when flying circuits,
I'd like to tap a dedicated place on the screen, which would simply show the number of taps
(and thus showing a number of already flown landings/takeoffs) and internally storing date+time somewhere,
to be pulled out once finally landed (as a part of a flight log, ideally).


This might apply to doing landings or touch&gos on different airports,
yet it might already be covered within the flight log (automatic time decision on landing / takeoff).
Not sure on the circuits, haven't seen that in the log.


I'm describing this very vagualy, as I'd like to leave a lots of room of interpretation by the SkyDemon authors,
to allow this feature wish to fit into the direction that is set for SkyDemon.

Yet I would really be happy about seeing the clear UTC window (configurable, hide-able for others) in the native app.


thank you,
adam

Hi I fly microlights where space is at a premium. I use a Garmin GPS and a clock. I plan using Skydemon and I have been considering using the naviagation option and replacing the Garmin. I would find it very useful if there was clock / timer / or stopwatch available on the navigation screen.

Looking at a watch in an open cockpit when suited up is not easy! Which is why I have been using a seperate timer to monitor flight time and hence remaining duration. Having the time available would free up some space.

Regards

The usual devices Skydemon runs on do have the system time always displayed.
‌If you are unable to add/sub LCL to UTC, switch the clock to UTC a solution?

‌Flying microlight or ultralight obviously is different from the PPL+ world.
‌Who flies certified aircraft, does have to have a separate stopwatch by registration anyways.
‌I usually use the Skydemon timers to tackle times if needed.

I don’t wish to be argumentative, but your assertion that there is a requirement for a certified aircraft to carry a stopwatch is wrong. Means of displaying time, yes, but not a stopwatch.

Unless of course you can point me to the rule that says otherwise.
