Hi,

choices are instant vario or averaged over 30secs, would it be possible to have a 15secs option which is more about one circle ?

Thanks in advance and have a great flying season!

It's the time for a full circle at 40 km/h and 25 of bank. I fly hang and paragliders, one can thermal slower or bank more than that.

But 18 or 20s would be already a good info
