Hi guys
Still new to skydemon and learning.
I can’t seem to find two things I would have thought were simple nav aids during flight.
1. Total flight time... once launched I’d expect to see a flight timer, but can’t find one.
2. A return to launch indicator - I know it draws a flight “trail” in orange behind you as I move along, which I can technically follow back to the launch LZ, but as I’m a slow ultralight recreation flyer my flights are wandering, and when it’s time to return I’d like a simple straight line direction indicator and ideally a time to return to launch.
Are these things hidden somewhere I can’t find?

Thanks in advance

I think you haven't planned any particular route.
If just flying around, create a route with a diameter of whatever NM you require. SD gives a selection.
That will also bring up any NOTAMs in your flying area and local weather from reporting airfields

Go flying and then when you want to get home, a long press on the SD orb. (top left of display).
Then select "Go To' for your home airfield and a track line will appear.

If you follow this method your in-flight timers (a row at top of display) will display time to destination etc.
You need to select the instruments first in the setup.

Hope this helps
Tony
