Red values indicate suspect data, because the tracklog contains invalid points.

Metric units are used for all chart data, except for Height which is shown in feet.

Notes

Climb and Speed averaged over 4 second intervals.

These values may be lower than those shown by a flight instrument, which has access to continuous raw data.

Red values indicate suspect data, because the tracklog contains invalid points.

Average Speed around course is measured from Start to Finish points.

Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

Fantastic in flight goal setting. Used 'thetrainline' to find out when the rare cross wales trains were due as had to be elsewhere in the evening. Chose Tal-Y-Bont as could have glided much further even without lift but would have missed the train coming from the south. Struggled to find sink to get down, but landed 200 yards from station, packed and ran to station with 4 minutes to spare - result, as would have had to wait another 4 hours for the next train.

My original goal was Cwmbran on the Hereford line which has a much better service but was a big blue hole in that direction.
