Thanks for the info. I think I am following...not sure I got the part about adding/subtracting 20% (?), but it looks like you are estimating 4 percentage points for each degree using the percentage at 0 as the 'base.' I understand it's a ball park.

Can't wait to try it out. I have the hardest time controlling altitude on that little mcpx...hoping this will make things more stable.
