Update Available

This update adds a few new features to the altitude prediction calculator. It will display the motor class percentage and thrust to weight ratio once a calculation is made. If the thrust to weight ratio is more than five the display is green. If less than five it is red. It will warn if the thrust ratio is less than five.

Since this calculator assumes a static drag coefficient, it will warn the user if the flight is transonic. Once a flight becomes transonic, the drag coefficient increases rapidly. For transonic flights, a static Cd could result in less accurate results.

The two warnings can be enabled or disabled by the user from the app settings.
