FlyTec 6015 Reference Card

I just got the FlyTec 6015 vario and I am dying to try it out, but the rain won't stop.

So I decided to spend a little time creating a handy cheat sheet for it so that when I get to the mountain, I will remember how to use it.

You can print the PDF Version, cut it out and fold it to obtain a 3 inch by 2.5 inch (8 x 5.5 cm) card, suitable for laminating and keeping with your vario. Or save the image file (right click - save) and manipulate it in any way you wish before printing. Free to share under the Creative Commons License.

I hope the reference card is self-explanatory, and if it isn't there is always the FlyTec manual [pdf] to fall back on. A bar over a button means hold it down for a bit. No bar means press and release.

Only the features I would expect to use before and during a flight are included. All the setup features can be done using the full manual in the warmth and comfort of your home.

If you have owned this vario for a while, you probably don't need this card unless you are on the north side of the half century, like me, and tend to forget how to use your equipment between flights.

Please let me know if I made any mistakes.
