Hey Dan, great stuff you got here. I really enjoy the DeltaGliderII. Keep up the good work!

I was wondering if there was a way to create AP programs that do something like hold a specific
pitch... Basicall how flexible are they?

I also noticed in DISP 3, there's a diagram of the DG with some numbers with C's next to them at
various points. What do these numbers mean? At first I thought they might be temperature, but
they read all 0's when landed, and it's not 0 degrees Celsius out...

Just need to change "hold pitch" instead of "hold AOA" in pro104 program
and rename it PRO105 for example
But I don't understand very well your query: "flexible" ??? what do you mean
and for what do you intend to use it ?

Your right it's the temperature but calculating the external temp for atmosphere
on various planet is really difficult so for now it show only "delta temperature"

While thinking about it if anyone can find ressource to have various
atmospheric planet's temp for solar system I can implement some table
so you will have correct temp showing.

By "flexible" I mean like what range of things can you really do with these programs?

I can't find any program text files other than PRO903SPEC.txt in the /Sound/DeltaGliderII/PROG/
folder. Where can I find PRO104?

Tuning pro903 you can get various result in mean of fuel comsumption
and Orbit's final altitude. rename it with another number so you can
choose your orbit altitude with different program.
(note that PRO904 will be used in the next version for a launch
from Mars surface)

PRO104 isn't an editable program as it's doesn't       
follow a path. Its purpose is too maintain an AOA and a bank thus
there is no need for editable data.

First you tell me to edit PRO104, and now you tell me you can't :)

My mistake sorry, it's the PRO903 that can be edited
the PRO104 is the reentry program... :) and when I said
changing AOA to pitch and rename it pro105
I was meaning that I must do that.
