Default Vern, Join our AOA Team & Integrate your M5Stack AOA Display

Vern, our Flyonspeed.org team are very impressed with your AOA display design and would like to integrate your AOA display with our AOA system including adding your SW and hardware design to our GitHub account at https://github.com/flyonspeed/OnSpeed-Gen2 and then work integration together!

Our Gen 2 ONSPEED design is completely self-contained and has on-board differential pressure, static and attitude sensors, integrates with the onboard EFIS (if installed), and provides an advanced aural AOA and aircraft performance tone to the Pilot, your System can provide a very useful visual AOA indication and we think it could be integrated to our system by RS232, WIFI, or maybe Bluetooth (both use same WIFI Chip).

We were the 2018 EAA Founder's Innovation Award Winners with our Gen-1 Aural AOA system, are were now working toward this summers Founder's Innovation Award Grand Prize with our new Gen-2 custom designed Gen-2 system and its advanced AOA tracking Software. More details at Flyonspeed.org.

Please send PM and we can discuss.

Thanks
Cecil "TRON" Jones

A teaser for those interested... I've developed a library of graphical widgets for Engine Monitor type displays.

More examples coming soon.

But wait, there's more!
The collaboration with the Flyonspeed.org folks has borne fruit, and we are testing a new display for Angle of Attack (AOA) and supplementary information.



The main graphical widget in the center of the screen is modeled after an F4 Phantom, updated to provide more comprehensive information.

It displays optimal cruise efficiency (white bar aligned with white dots in the yellow chevrons), On Speed for final approach, best glide and best rate of climb (green doughnut in middle), incipient stalls (red chevrons), a progressive AOA indication (white bar and digits at top). NOTE: the white bar is barely visible at the bottom (0% AOA).

Incipient stall also causes the red chevrons to flash and the slip indicator ball to flash and turn red if not centered.

I'm pleased to have joined the OnSpeed folks in this endeavor. I introduced my first AOA display 14 years ago and it's nice to contribute to this ongoing effort.

I've updated the previous post to include more photos of typical engine gauges.
I have a Beta release of the engine gauge widget library.

Anyone skilled in the art can contact me via email if they want to dig further.
I will be integrating the various EMS display pages with the 'back seat display' project later on.

The idea is that you have one or more devices that you can clip to a back seat rail that provides whatever airdata or engine data that you want to display. I'll be providing several baseline configurations, but if you are skilled in C++ programing and math (yes, for the graphic positioning) you can build your own custom pages based on my examples.

Default Attitude

Hey Vern,
Very slick! Did you notice the attitude display on the m5stack blog page?
https://m5stack.com/pages/blog-page. I am sure that you would need the "grey" version with the 9 -axis sensor to make it work but pretty small mark up for the additional functionality. I've got one on the way to play with via Amazon.

Cheers, Sean

Yup, we are working on it... but I'm not sure I would use it as a primary reference. Right now, all flight and engine data is taken from a Garmin or Dynon EFIS, hence the idea of a 'back seat display'. The M5 devices are very capable. Can turn one into an MP3 player as well....
