Default IKON2 Bluetooth Question

After connecting to the iKon2 via Bluetooth and making tuning changes, does the unit need to be power cycled or are all the tuning changes realtime? Thanks

Real time. But it wouldn't hurt anything to power-cycle.

If you are in the middle of a pack and make changes via Bluetooth the log for the current flight will be deleted, so if you want to keep the log:
Power-cycle, make changes, and power-cycle again.

It will be split into separate flight logs but all the info will be there.

Yes.

There is no reason to power cycle it.

Except for the reasons outlined above by shizack related to how logging works. Connecting with BT or USB without a power cycle results in the logs not being saved.
