Hey,

I kited a few times with Woo 1 and Woo 3 (optimal placements on the board for both of them) and biggest difference i had was 0,5m higher on Woo 1 :lol:
I have to say, usually 0,1-0,2m appart from each other...

In conclusions, i get very similar results with both 8)
I got lots of 2 m differences, v3 recorded more jumps too, especially the higher ones.

Lucky you :lol: :lol: :lol:

But seriously, how are they mounted ? placement is very important for consistency...

Exactly in the middle, just above each other. Switched them too one session, no real differences in readings.

Did anyone else noticed lower values since the last firmware update about a week ago?

I have ridden with a woo 1, 2 and 3 on the same board.

The woo 1 recorded 1/3 of the jumps compared to the 3, the woo 2 recorded about 2/3rd's

The woo 3 consistently recorded jumps 2-5m higher than the woo 1 and about 2-3m more than the woo 2.

My woo 3 broke a month ago and I am waiting for an email back from Woo about a replacement so only have an old woo 1 and woo 2.

the woo 1 is useless and I don't use it as it doesn't record much at all.

the woo 2 is annoying me now as for example, on Saturday I was riding in 35 knots on my Edge 10m and had a couple of jumps where I saw the top of friends kites and the woo 2 recorded 11m peak, with only recording 20 jumps in an hour and a half session with only 3 jumps over 10m. I know I am not Joshua Emanuel but I know what I am about and have a decent idea about how high I am going based on what I can see from up there!

I am losing the love for it quite rapidly as I enjoy riding without it more than with it when it comes to poor readings etc.

Sad that results are so different...it's a fun tool for many who like to come over that way...it pushes people to go out and have a fun time chasing the highest height.

I hope soon there will be a better device that is more accurate...just to keep it fair for everyone. Unfortunately like this it makes big jump results look shady...would prefer to give credit where credit is due without any doubts.

Let's hope...

Well yeah, the highest jump is always the most accurate.
