    Howdy...

    Does anyone know if it's possible to set a maximum speed for climb or descent in AH? When I'm quite high, it's fairly difficult to tell how fast I'm climbing or descending, and it'd be great if there was a 'max' option where I could give it quite a bit of stick, but be sure I'm not speeding up or down too fast...

    Thoughts?

    Best,

    Ben

    I use the Variometer that comes as part of the Smart On Screen Display to control the copter's rate of ascent/descent.
    I tried the acoustic variometer (which I know and love from my sailplane flying days), but found it to be a bit too approximate. The SOSD Vario allows me to "fly" the variometer and ramp up/down ascent/descent speeds.
