Wind: compass-assisted wind calc (using nmea-compass)
|Reported by:||daniel.forst@…||Owned by:||jwharington|
Description (last modified by Turbo) (diff)
during long straight flights a compass(heading-sysstem)-assisted wind-calc
would be very useful in oder to get a correct wind-indication even if not
circling for a longer time or during mountain-flights where the wind may change
quite often, depending on the topology.
there are compass-heading-systems available that transmit the information to
external devices using nmea-sentences.
the nmea-datastream could then be multiplexed into the nmea-datastream of the
logger, vario or flarm.
a nmea-multiplexer is available at
i'm pretty sure hans or falk from the k6team would assist you if you need any
support concerning the nmea-multiplexer... just drop them a mail... they are
really nice guys a know a lot about this stuff.
if you have any questions, just contact me via email.
keep up the great work.
