The video core GPU temperature can be read with the use of the terminal and the below command:
<syntaxhighlight lang="bash">
vcgencmd measure_temp
The Raspberry Pi4 starts to throttle, reduce frequency, with temperatures over 85c. When flying the DC-3 Dakota at a steady cruse altitude, in a low scenery dense area, the core temperature was reported to be ~75c. This was with ambient temperature of ~24c. The temperature rapidly dropped to ~45c when the cooling fan was energized. There was no heat sink installed for this test. FlightGear was running in fullscreen mode on monitor 1 and terminal was running on monitor 2. Screen resolution was possibly 1024 x 768.
