What you can do with telemetry data...

These days technology allows us to look at our hobby from completely new perspectives.

Below the GPS and vario data from my glider flight on Saturday overlayed on Google Earth. Impressive what you can do with just a few mouse clicks!

From the height graph you can see how the glider got cought in a thermal just after launch and quickly reached a maximum height of 472m (1548ft) over ground!!

An impressive height for the old 2m Spectra glider and a real test for the pilots eyesight 8-)
The complete flight lastet only 30 minutes and the glider covered a distance of 12km during this time.

(The data was recorded from Vario and GPS connected to my Weatronics receiver, sent to the transmitter module over the backchannel, translated to voice output to keep the pilot updated and finally stored on the memory card in the transmitter module.)
