I check, and all I can find is yours!

Pity I missed this one, the forecast looked blustery, hope you got some good flying in.

Hey Andy, good to hear from you! Hope all is good with you :)

Alrighty, sorry for the delay, had a mad week! And camera was used every nights, but here are a few photos.

As for the weekend, Mount Leinster delivered once again! Slow day on the Saturday, warm (for once!) with plenty of flying done in the morning, but wind turning slowly but surely South from West. We are lazy (or getting old!) we could not face going up the South West slope, so it was an afternoon for the electric twirly machines or for the ones who did not mind going for a walk :) Anyway, it was good, and warm, so we had a bit of a win :)

Sunday, all changed, and the wind was dead on NE, so up to the 9 Stones car park.. And it was flying for all, brilliant flying conditions for any machines, so we were out with our ASW15 and a few others. Cherry on the cake, coffee trailer was up there to keep us warm (NE winds, it was cold!! Never happy those flyers!  ;D )
A great day for flying :)

On my side, one bad news.. My little Pilatus crashed :( after investigation, the receiver gets a tad warm after 5 minutes and keeps rebooting, so that explain the "telemetry lost/telemetry recovered" constant messages I got until it hit the planet at full speed :( But that is a solid machine, and other than the wing joiner tube inside the wing that broke the root ribs, nothing else that cannot be fixed in 10 minutes! Very lucky, but I am glad to know what the issue was! Receiver is in the bin now (shame, was a good one with Vario etc :( )

I also tried a new toy! GPS logger from SM Modellbau.. I like it! And that will go in all my models, that thing is deadly, and extremally precise, even without the TEK pitot, but the 3D view of your flight is great (see photo).

Anyway, once again, a great weekend of flying, and good to catchup with friends :)

Bring on the next meeting!! :)

I though their Vario looked interesting as I have failed to get my Jeti vario working and have run out of patience!!! ;-)

Fred, do they just take a static pressure reading? Alot of images on the website showing what look to be external piped connections or maybe these are just optional extras for better accuracy?

The data looks cool though!

Hey Kevin,

I’d say it’s a good investment. Let’s say I’m happy to have it, and that thing is really precise as well!
Full option with vario etc etc, so cost wise, if you add all the features, it is actually relatively cheap.

You have a TEK option with it, so might put a pitot on the bigger gliders to have the proper readings, but as is, it’s close to perfect.

And dead easy to use or move model to model, of any size for that matter.

Anyway, I can see lots of use for it, especially if you look at improving your flying patterns etc. And the 3D view is class I think :)
