    Dear Kwik EFIS Users Group,

    It has been a pretty eventful time in terms of Kwik EFIS development. The application now features much improved synthetic vision performance, much more coverage and also voice alerts.

    Would you you believe it! We have gone international. In addition to our Ozies and Saffers, we now have American, German and even Russian (Спасибо, Юрий) users.

    Kwik EFIS V3.2 has been flight tested and the stable (unsigned) release candidate can be downloaded from:
    http://members.iinet.net.au/~ninelima/efis/download.html under the Beta Releases.

    Note:
    This version of Kwik EFIS has also been released to F-Droid for signing and distribution. There is a unfortunately bit of a technical delay with the data pacs. Hopefully this will be resolved soon and signed app and data packages will be available from F-Droid as a signed and certified package.
    (See https://gitlab.com/fdroid/admin/issues/31 for details)

    Kwik EFIS v3.2 available

    The official signed F-Droid (FOSS) version of Kwik EFIS is now available.
    There are only a few minor changes from the v3.2-rc release candidate, the most noticeable would be the introduction of voice alterts for stall, sink, terrain and 500.

    The program can be obtained from F-Droid: https://f-droid.org/packages/player.efis.pfd/
    Fossdroid: https://fossdroid.com/a/kwik-efis.html
    or the website: http://members.iinet.net.au/~ninelima/efis/download.html

    Synthetic vision coverage:http://members.iinet.net.au/~ninelima/efis/datapac.html
    The next release will contain the "fat-finger" development making entering waypoints and altitude easier, particularly on smaller devices.

    I was talking about exactly this over beers and tacos with a programmer friend just last night. My thinking was to have a pair of electronic barometers in a 3D printed pitot head feeding info to an Arduino which then displays on one of those cheap-o Amazon tablets for part of your basic VFR equipment on the cheap. We might get playing with it this winter to see what we can come up with.

    I really think Stratux with an AHRS modal is an easy and cheap solution.

    The Open Flight Solutions Flight box plus (has AHRS), sells for $350 (includes a nice app), ifly sells Stratux RXWX Dual Band ADS-B Receiver with AHRS & GPS Source for $199. Everlast concepts has it for $239. They all work with the ifly 740, and the ifly apps (which includes and efis tab) and a bunch of other apps like wing X that include EFIS, GPS navigation, and synthetic vision.
