Just a fun artificial horizon simulator!
Being a private pilot, I originally looked at developing this tool as a backup artificial horizon while I'm flying. However, since the Android phone doesn't have true gyros, it just makes for a great demonstration.

I don't get it!
Great demo, fun way to show off some of your phones features!
Its a fun app to show to your non-pilot friends, but since our phones don't have actual gyros,useless in flight.
Idk what this app is about or how it is our isn't useful until then 3*. Evo 2.2
I did an aileron roll and it showed wings level the entire time. About as useful as a glass of water except you couldn't drink it if you were thirsty.
Looks like an artificial horizon, but is not. G forces cause inaccurate readings. Do not use for flight, not even in emergency, will cause death.
I tested it as we rolled into a nice coordinated turn and it showed wings level. Not safe for any purpose in an aircraft!
Would like to see more instruments and plugin for fsx and xplane.
