First live testing of live trackers
Yesterday we had some good flying. Four flights each for most of the group. I even managed a quick flight to test conditions on the first flight when it still looked a little windy. Post cold front conditions with hoar frost at launch and a wind chill factor well below zero. We all landed after the first flight with very painfull hands. However, things improved, the wind dropping and the sun warming things up.
We were able to make the first real test of the new tracking software developed by Paul Russell for keeping track of our pilots from the retrieve vehicle with a tablet and from a smart phone. A few bugs, which Paul picked up on from watching in the UK. All in all though it worked well and promises to be a great asset.
Things are looking impossilbe for lying today with another cold front and the influence of the deep depression centred over the N of the Bay of Biscay. Maybe another sightseeing tour today!
