Dear Captains,
I have done all my homework and thoroughly enjoying my Karma and the quality of the video. I do the checklist and use what I thought were great apps.
I had my eyes open to the 'kpi index', except which one is correct? I have 3 apps; 2 say "yeah go fly and enjoy" with a kpi1 and the other (which I thought would be the most accurate) said "May-Day May-Day May-Day! we are in a flat spin. Eject! Eject! Eject! Goose... Mind the canopy!", with a kpi4. Which do I believe and what app should I use? Unless I should just watch the sun through binoculars and check for myself? (I might only have one shot at that one...)

Depending on your location I wouldn’t trust those apps for the wind. But as you probably have seen on their website, the karma can resist 35km/h winds ( I saw a video in YouTube 37km/h). It doesn’t need to be sunny and beautiful to get the best out of your karma, fly it whenever you want :)
PD: Not when it’s raining

I had some pretty high gusts today and I was impressed at how stable she was. No more than a metre flutter at it's peak.

I think for future reference, if my retinas burn when checking the sun manually, I shouldn't fly... or drive...
Seriously though, do I ignore it?

P.S: Is your avatar Windsor Davies from 'It ain't half hot mum'? You either look like him or are he/him? Taken me weeks to remember who it looked like!
