The Stratomaster I have (its sitting on a shelf if you are interested in buying it?) has a red LED and has a provision for an external idiot lamp that goes off when you go below a certain airspeed.
I would leave space on your dash to mount a cellphone or tablet and then run a Stratux so you get mapping and ADS-B in.
What are you doing for engine monitoring? Does the controller you have give you a good dash?
For "engine" monitoring I have the MGL 12 channel thermocouple reader picking up on a variety of battery, motor and controller temps,
On the electrical side I have a Cycle Analyst with the normal shunt and voltage measurements taking input from a pitot tube for airspeed to get efficiency numbers.
I likely wont be looking at all the temps all the time, but mainly just looking for the alarm light. Battery heat will not be a problem, nor will controller heat, but the motor will go into reduced-current de-rating if pushed too hard for too long. granted, the equilibrium point should leave me with more horsepower than stock, but keeping an eye on power available will be important i think.
The race bike:
24s5p 50c nano tech

Peak power in : 420A at 87v
Peak power out: 34 Hp and 105ft/lb
