The Soaringlab viewer is already a few months up and running and most important bugs should be fixed by now.
Flightdata looks fairly reliable and 3D graphics looking good.
But still, there are so many items on our TODO-list and there is a huge margin for improvements.
Next step is to get the userplatform up and running, and we would like to present some of the features.
- Smart logbook : Save our flights into your logbook with automatic detection of flighttimes, XC distance, ICAO airfields, launchmethod...
- Glider manager : Create your own glidercollection. When users link a glider to a flight in their logbook, the viewer will show correct competition number and callsign. It's even possible to customize your gliders and show off your design to the world.
- Statistics : As said before : There is no such thing as "to much information" when we are analysing our flights. So we would like to create very detailed personal flightstatistics but also global data of all flights ever uploaded to Soaringlab.
We hope to implement many others as : sharing of tasks, waypoints, connections to other soaringplatforms ... to many to say.
Time and money are key factors to improve and maintain Soaringlab. There are many different flightanalysing tools which are not free.
But the idea from the beginning was to keep it free and accessible for everyone to make gliding more visible to a large public.
So, we would like to present the Soaringlab PRO formula : The Soaringlab viewer stays free for everyone and there is no limit on loading and replay flights but some of the advanced statistics will move to the Soaringlab PRO platform.
Users can still register for free and save flights to their logbooks, but, as PRO user, you can have many more features.
Pricing of the PRO formula will be between price of a winchstart and price of a towstart on a yearly base (depending on general interest). As PRO user you can enjoy all features Soaringlab has to offer.
We hope to welcome you as PRO user in the future at let us improve Soaringlab from something nice to something awesome...
