The application includes an on-board 'instrument' to show lateral acceleration (a G-meter), oil and coolant temperature gauges, a chronometer and a compass.
Installing a G-meter, admittedly rare in non-acrobatic airplanes, is one way to determine if the structure is overstressed, but a detailed inspection is the only certain method of discovering airframe damage.
Surprises, too, like an optional pop-up sat-nav with a visual G-meter and display showing throttle input and turbo boost.
