Fun Meters are cheaper, too. I built mine for less than $5....I would prioritize a fun meter over a Artificial Horizon. That said if I wander into clouds I can flip Avare over to a Stratofier app and use my Stratux AHRS gyros to do a 180 or whatever is needed to get clear of clouds again. 1st order of business is to stay clear of clouds!
Yes I know carb heat first but it is lacking a permanently pegged FUN METER ...panel perfection is but one step away!
And I do have to correct a misconception about my fun meter: It is not pegged. It is at the top of the yellow arc. That's an unusual amount of fun, just below the danger level.
