Default Verbal flaperon warning on Dynon Skyview Touch?

I have a question regarding the Dynon Skyview and setting up a possible alert. Is there a way to have the Skyview annunciate FLAPS when the speed hits 80 knots. I want it to only annunciate once and not continuously and only when speed is increasing. It's either that or I will change my practices to taking off with no flaps as (my friend) has unfortunately set up cruise with one notch of flaps still in. I follow checklists but when the airspace is busy it's easy to miss flaps up. Cruise with one notch is a little bit different as the need for more power but when distractions arise it can get missed. I'm sure my friend is the only one to ever have this happen.

I put a label on panel that says FLAPS to remind me

I fly off of a grass field and always use one notch of flap for takeoff. At least once a year I forget to raise flap and settle into cruise at slower speed with attitude indicator not showing level flight. The older I get the longer it takes to recognize the problem...

After Takeoff Checklist:

Flaps Up ... Lights out
Gear ... OFF, Lights out
Autobrake ... OFF
Start Switches ... As required
Engine Bleeds and Packs ... ON & AUTO
APU ... As required

That's how the working man does it

The "Verbal" part is the guy/gal reading the checklist ...

Dynon has addressed this capability on the Skyview forum, there is no internal feature you can access to accomplish this. Their recommendation is to use the RS232 data output to a device that would figure out the condition and alarm as needed. Something like a Raspberry Pi would work well if you want to program the condition logic and connect the audio out to the intercom.

There is an RV-12 mod that featured a microswitch to monitor flaps up or down; post #119 at https://vansairforce.net/community/s...=64145&page=12.

If you want to use the internal Dynon functions, you could do something like the flap position microswitch wired in series with an air speed switch from Aircraft Extras wired to a Dynon SV monitored contact pin. You could set the switch to activate at 80 kts and monitor the flap handle position with the microswitch on/off to complete the circuit. You could setup a Dynon FLAPS widget to show a RED/GREEN/YELLOW condition if the airspeed is over 80 knots and the flaps are down. The choice of a open circuit or closed circuit would depend on the microswitch NO or NC configuration with the airspeed switch state.
