I get my W&B as part of a service that would not be very useful in the U.S., but a buddy of mine never misses a chance to point out how happy he is with the Gyronimo app.

Perry: send me a PM with your email address and I'll email you a graphing W&B MS Excel spreadsheet that I put together for my previously-owned DA42-VI. It takes the TKS fluid into account as well as fuel and baggage. Also you can open the file on your iPad or iPhone using Apple's included Numbers app.

Hi Perry -

I use the W&B through ForeFlight. Nice graphical picture of load - takes a little time to set up the initial parameters, but very easy to use following that. I used it for our 42TDI and now for our 62.

From ForeFlight's website -

I've seen the Gyronimo app for the DA40 and DA42NG - not sure if they have DA42-V1 data yet. Hopefully, they will create the app for the 62 soon - the program gives you a lot more than just W&B -

With FF you could create one from scratch, or take and existing one and customize it.

I use FF W&B when I want to check something and I'm away from home. Or my Excel spreadsheet from years before there was a FF if I'm standing (I never sit any more) at my desk and want to run some what-if's. I created one for NG's as well JFF.

Hi Rich:

Do you happen to have a cheatsheet for FF set up you can share. Or a screenshot?

Thank

I have a DA40, so probably not helpful. But go into FF -> More -> W&B Select + and enter your N number, select options, and go from there.
