That's a good idea!
I will implement it right now, all i need is a fuel flow sensor
but i know where i can find one i think.
125km with 2kgm AUW !!!
Was it a continuously
powered flight or it had glide sections also?
What was the average air or ground (whatever) speed?

To optimize efficiency you can display an efficiency
indicator on the 2D map using papgets. An easy efficiency
indicator would be "Speed per Percent Throttle". Better
efficiency indicators are "Speed per Fuel Flow" or "Distance
per Litre Fuel", but this needs a fuel flow measurement. For
electric planes it would be "Speed per Amps" or "Distance per
Ah". The simple math needed for these indicators (one
division) can be done directly in the papget. Then choose a
calm day (no wind), fly large circles and manually play around
with the throttle setting (using pitch neutral as described)
until you get maximum efficiency. We have done so successfully
with our long distance small electric planes (>125km, 140cm
wingspan, 2kg weight).
