FxJ Companion

When practising and when flying a competition, it is quite important to have excact knowledge about the remaining time for your flight and to have a good and clear count down, of these last seconds of your working time.
Ofcourse, a good helper is unbeatable and I would never want to fly a comp. without ......................



However when practising I have to do without my helper, so I had to look for another solution. (no girl friends allowed )
Since I had a older (android) Samsung Ace smartphone at hand I deicided to use that one, in combination with a count down app.


The first app I used is called a Interval Alert Timer but this app had some shortcomings especcially when counting down the last minute.

So a couple of weeks ago Joerg Engelblecks introduced this (android) app.
in the Google Play Store : FxJ Companion.

And this aps looks like this on your phone



Over the past weeks we had some updates already but the final version, 1.08 will be published early week 36,
and will have the options as shown in the diagram below:



So, many options will be available from hearing the lenghth of the motorrun (assuming you start at the hooter)
till have a full count down of that last minute of your working time

Just discovered this timer. Lots of opportunities with the settings.
Wold be great if the flight timer start automatically when the work timer starts, Then you would see your over due time, if any.
Looking forward to next update.

For F3J don't you need to record flight times to 0.01 sec?
Do you truncate or round your flight times?

Setting the timer for decimals is a option, actually.
If times are truncated or not; I don't know cause I never tested it

Hard work is done on the current version. Update to come next week and I think, version 1.09 will be superb !!
The number one count down and infor app for android smart phones
