Data
Retrieving sink rate data

Used the 2.4Ghz version tx today, it worked flawlessly, didn't drop out once.
Now, can anybody tell me how to retrieve the sink rate data after pressing the up-arrow during flight...?

Hi Chris,

That's great news - glad things are working well!

The sinkrate capture feature is not yet supported. The capturing part is done, but not the post-flight downloading and analysis from the Dashboard.

One reason we haven't done this yet is that the data are all logged in much "richer" form in the recorder.

Regards,

Bill, for Eagle Tree

OK Bill, I can get a rough idea from averaging the sink rate dial playback
(Looks like about 200' per min, does that sound ball park?)

Hi Chris
In free flight, 1 ft per second is concidered very good, so yes, I would think something with 5 to 10 times the wingloading might well have 3times the sink rate ie 180 ft/min
FYI ... I set my sink rate at 200 , and climb rate at 60 for the vario beeps. Probably a little low on climb rate.
