I've been using this app since starting PPG training in April 2021. It's basically my logbook since I've been using it with Garmin Connect. Great app! Works like a charm. Thanks!!

So far I've uploaded my igc files to different xc portals using another GPS and software. Now I have Garmin Fenix 6 and Stufly and I can't get a file with valid G-record. Will it be possible one day?

All you need to do is go to garmin connect in a PC browser, and go to the saved activity. When you view it, you will find an option top right that allows you to save the GPS data as a GPX file, etc

The app is great, price is on point! However, I have noticed it display "elevation" on the garmin connect website, and it is way off for some reason. For example, I took off from my site at 900ft MSL. It displays my "elevation" at 4000ft for some reason, and the entire flight was based on a zero of 4000ft. I wonder if this is due to the barometer and having the watch inside your sleeves. However, it says GPS is taken into account as well. So I don't know. The only options to make this app better would be to automatically start the activity when you hit X speed, and to automatically stop the activity when it detects movement is stopped. When I switched from the "Flying" app, I have to constantly trim my activities as Stufly does not auto start or stop.

Some others have reported altitude issues. Can I ask that you report them to me with as many details as you can? The app does not calculate altitude, it simply gets it from the watch, so if wrong in the app, it _should_ be just as wrong in the watch? Also it does autostart when it detects you have taken off. It does not and cannot detect you landing. For example, if you were flying into wind equal speed to your airspeed you would look to have 'stopped' as far as the app is concerned.

I've been using StuFly as my primary PPG instrument for a year now. I love it! It is easy to use, accurate, and can run for long periods. It is comforting to always know where your LZ is at a glance. I put my Garmin on so that the face is on the underside of my wrist. This way I can read StuFly with my hands on the brakes, which is handy when conditions require active flying.

Just got this app . Seams easy . I’ll get back to you after I’ve used it a while . Cool app

Bought a fenix 6 saphire just to use your app after watching your YouTube channel. Works perfectly well. Thanks for this and your awesome YouTube videos.

Finally got a Fenix 5x and installed Stufly. It’s just what a pilot needs for simplicity.

Works great. I have a Garmin Vivoactive3 watch. The only thing I can't get it to do is save the flight data. When I push the "Stop button" that works with other apps, StuFly stops but it doesn't give the option to "Save" or "Discard" like other apps do. Suggestions? Once that works, StuFly is a left 5 and I'll revise my reviews.

Great app gives all info needed while on your wrist saves getting phone out when flying.......

love this app! I am new to the sport and wanted something simple and easy to use . This has helped me a ton, plus I'm not having to try and mess with an app on my phone while flying. it saves all my flight info and can still look over patern and other info later on phone.

A well thought out app that has a display that is easy to read with the information I need. The only thing I wish it had was wind speed/direction like FlySkyHy. Overall, Stufly is a great App for PPG!

I just downloaded the newest version. So hopefully that update may have corrected this problem. I am using StuFly on my Vivoactive3 with a touch screen. For some reason every time I start StuFly before a PPG flight, the app has stopped running before I finish the flight. I don't know if the touch screen is getting touched during flight or what is going on. Hopefully the newest update will resolve this issue. If so, I will update my review and rating. Is anyone else having auto-shutdown problems on their Garmin device(s)?

Brilliant app for paramotoring All you need and nothing you dont need I use it on a Fenix 3 and love it

Hi. Does the app use gps or barometric data? The preinstalled altimeter in the fenix 5 shows my correct altitude using the barometer however stufly often shows me 60/100 and sometimes 300ft difference....any advice please? Thanks for your work on this app.

Hi damian. Please update to v8. This is now fixed. Thanks for alerting me to it - it was due to garmin changing the sdk.

Since 2018 I've been using the Stufly app while flying my Paramotor. It's an AWESOME app and it's the sole reason I purchased the Garmin Fenix 5 watch. Bar None... Stufly is the best app for Paramotor pilots. Thank You Stu for creating such an AWESOME app.

I am an active flyer/instructor and have used this application on several Garmin devices - performs flawlessly and has all the relevant data points in a glance - a must for hand’s free in flight operation!

March 10, 2020 | Version v6

This is a GREAT little App, everything you need in one place for paramotoring. After watching the video on YouTube i bought a Garmin fenix and downloaded it and then the updated version, brilliant.

July 25, 2018 | Version V1.0

Congratulations on your work. To be complete, only speed of climb is lacking. Excellent app for PPG

December 16, 2017 | Version V1.0

This is great. Exactly what paramotor pilot wants to have (four stars because I am missing Vertical speed information)
