First Ridge Traverse - Wyoming Range, Wyoming by Tim Taylor

Question for those of you who fly with Oudie and Condor2: While sink near thermals seem to be modeled well in Condor2, some people in our club do not think that Condor models areas of sink outside of thermals (between clouds) very well. In other words, when they fly cross-country in real life...

Butterfly vario wind indication by Ian Wright
The wind direction/speed info on our butterfly vario is only working intermittently. When no direction and value is given it just shows WIND N/A. Sometimes it shows STILL AIR. All other functions seem to work just fine. Any ideas much appreciated?
