Product details

Gliderkeeper
... your personal logger and timekeeper!
GliderKeeper is primarily an FAI compliant F5J competition logger. GliderKeeper shows the typically required data on the built-in OLED display immediately after landing. In addition, all flights are recorded in full and can be quickly and conveniently read out on the airfield using a mobile device.

As an additional feature, the GliderKeeper enables not only the usual measurement data but also the recording of the actual flight time. The flight time is started by starting the engine and with the help of the integrated motion sensor it is possible to precisely record the landing. So you can see not only the logged switch-off altitude, but also the logged flight time immediately after landing.

The flight data can be completely read out and evaluated directly on a WiFi-enabled device via an optional WiFi connection. A quick and uncomplicated upload to the Internet is also possible.

It is important that the GliderKeeper only sends WiFi signals if this is activated by the pilot after landing. It is not possible to have the WiFi function activated during flight operations.

Functionality:
The GliderKeeper is firmly connected horizontally to the model's hull. This connection can also be made with a Velcro strip so that the GliderKeeper can also be used in several models. Since the GliderKeeper has an integrated acceleration sensor in addition to an absolute pressure sensor, it can not only measure the height, but also record the movement. Thus, the GliderKeeper not only records the altitude but also the flight time.

Due to the precision of the GliderKeeper, the flight time is in most cases identical to a hand-stopped flight time of a timekeeper. In some cases the value differs by less than a second, which is certainly a sufficiently accurate value for local competitions. Nevertheless, we are sure that we will be able to further optimize the quality of the measurement in the coming months.
