Last Thursday, eight brave men met to demonstrate that a F5J competition is possible with no need for timekeeper duties. All of us were equiped with one GliderKeeper inside our models.

We are all getting used to this new device so for the first times it is worth to take some minutes so everyone understands how to use it.

Very soon you will get comfortable with it, once you have used it a couple of times.

After reviewing the configuration of each of the devices we simply went into a single group eight in a row six flights competition.

This video is the demonstration that this is possible! It took us only two hours to do all the flights.

Print your boarding passes at home and the only thing you will need to bring to the airfield is the loudspeaker box with the speech manager. We call it GliderTimer. We will be talking of it in the next months.

Obviously, it was not a top level competition, and the more important the competition is the bigger the number of persons that must be hired for organisation. We want GliderKeeper to help reduce this overhead.

This was humble but serious competition, you can see results here:

And there were awards for the podium. Since we were in Valencia the prize was a kilo of paella rice!

Thank you for reading our post and we hope you liked it!
