Automatic Base A and Base B system
Michael and I tested the V1.10 of the camera based program today with excellent results. I have to qualify that because there was only one run where the plane was properly flown and the system was turned on. In that run though, the computer picked up every turn accurately, whether up high or down low. There were only two six leg climbs but every turn was picked up.
I've yet to test it on my computer but based on the computer used (a recent model Thinkpad) the system looks ready for some serious use.
The best result was obtained by turning the camera on its side and setting it back from the course about ten metres to provide a better field of view. Also we had to hold the walkie talkie open, the vox operated system is a bit insensitive and has the occasional lag.
Michael's program is a first class piece of software as far as I'm concerned.
With a better camera it may even be of competition standard.
