Thanks Bernard, but unless I can tell if your climbing/diveing and throttle settings it doesnt do a lot of good. I havent been able to figure out how to reference back to static values without that data as well.

I think the ideal data file will include volts, amps, rpm and possibly speed.

Then the plane needs to fly a specific flight profile so we can tell whats happening when.

In particuler I think a straight and level full throttle run starting from a low speed to max speed will be the most relevant and revealing as far as pure unloading in reference to a static reading. We also need the static full power data.

Climbs and dives will be interesting all on thier own but I dont think they help with the basic question that much. Id still like to see what % of change they cause just for fun.

I probably wont have time and good weather to do any logged runs untill this weekend some time.

Jeff sent me the wrong file so we are still waiting on that
