Have you seen this series:
http://www.handheldoscilloscope.net/tek ... lloscopes/
This is what I use for field service. Several storage modes and programmable presets. Much better than the bulkier units that have all the knobs on them, but don't do much.

Never liked the Fluke scopes. They make great meters, but their scope is very lacking. Look at Tektronix for O-scopes.

Actually to be able to break out all the tabs to separate windows would be nice. Some things are nicer to see graphically, some are nicer to see in text form, some better in tables. The is another program that allows you to see the BLM table, the item list and the monitor all at the same time.

Say, anyone ever done a live HP calculation based on fuel flow and RPM? Not that it would be perfectly accurate, but it could be kind of fun to read out HP development in real time.

One other clarification. The flag and the rich flat line O2 happen simultaneously. It will maintain that condition for a minute or two and then the flag goes false at the exact same time the O2 begins toggling. So I assume the rich condition is in response to the flag, as opposed to the other way ar...
