SBSS Meeting November 14th - Sailplane Telemetry for Competition

Come hear Francesco speak on how data logging, data analysis, and telemetry may be used to optimize the performance of a model for competition purposes. He will show the equipment and techniques he has developed for his F3J models, with special focus on the optimization of the launch phase.

Randy, our club secretary spotted this expert in our midst as he was installing a telemetry unit on Bob M's sailplane (our resident world competitor). This unit captures and records information from launch to landing. This helps Bob to adjust his radio and sailplane to get the best performance and handling from his sailplane.

Kyle will be in China so Randy's job is to host and record this memorable program for him, but Randy needs to make sure that Francesco covers how to get his radio to make those obnoxious beeps when he blindly stumbles into a thermal.

Our meeting starts at 6:30pm on Wednesday, November 14th, 2012 at the Saratoga Fire Station. Visitors are welcome and even motor heads may learn a trick or two.
