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.

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.

Hopefully another big learning experience for me. I'll try to remember them in future.

Ambitious 130k goal declared by text so knew I had to get away early and before the spreadout forecast happens. It was very early and even before cumulous overhead we launched.

Got a nice smooth climb out with Steve Pym on his Zeno, after a big assymetric on first entry that is. The Zeno was below me but glided off downwind. My mates and I had a plan to work together but they were stuck on the ground after slope landing and it didn't look good to go back upwind to the ridge so followed downwind to stand a chance of not being on my own. His glide was good and he was soon high but I had a low save and slowly climbed in a rather bitty and inconsistent way. I lost lift briefly and shot off to a small cloud slightly crosswind but it vanished as I got to it. Panic as nothing was within reach and so it turned out.

While I was packing away Crawford coulson came over me at less than 1000ft but got a climb out and never got low again.

My lesson is when its so early in the day and the flight and you've got something unless there's 100% chance of reaching a climb then stick with it Ambitious 130k goal declared by text so knew I had to get away early and before the spreadout forecast happens.
