Shadowbox...sooo cool

Postby Toby » Wed Apr 28, 2010 3:05 am

got myself a Shadowbox...very cool toy!

Does anyone know, how to see the airtime of a jump?
Only by looking at the timeline, or does it measure it automatically...the menu says something like this for the "Processed GPS-independent data"...

Here my highest jump of the day...warm air, winds of maybe 18-22 knots, 16 sqm kite.
Brazil's wind is amazing this year...little rain only...and very few people around!

That does look good.

Is there an unofficial jump height world record site yet?

no, but I can create a subforum for the highest jumps measured with GPS!

And then we can feature on top the highest jump!

but sometimes a jump can get measured incorrect...what to do with it?
