World’s First Altimeter with Flight Duration Option
Besides a latest technology barometer capsule, GliderKeeper features an accelerometer. Flight time is started upon throttle movement during launch, the same event as for motor timing in F5J rules.
Landing is captured by measuring the fuselage vibration on the model´s touch down.
Convenient Built in Oled display.
FAI Approved Firmware for F5J
GliderKeeper can be used as any other approved FAI Altimeter, but is bringing a lot more features...
Check your Flight results in display or your Mobile terminal
GliderKeeper microcontroller features a native Wi-Fi capability, after landing you can choose to perform another F5J flight or enter in Wi-Fi mode to see your flight results, both F5J “start Height” and duration of flight in your mobile.
See your Flight´s plot just after landing or export your data for later review
When entering Wi-Fi mode you will first see your last Flight Data. In this mode you can now review this Flight´s plot, choose the stored flight to plot and you can access all configuration and interface features see…
Change your device configuration at the field with no removals
At Wi-Fi mode you can access the configuration that the loaded firmware allows, perform any housekeeping in the unit and eventually update firmware or User Interface pages. No need for removals from the airplane. No more wear in JR connectors that have been giving us problems in the past

No more papers, less people involved in a competition
In these days where social interchanges are not very convenient a totally paperless contest can be handled with GliderKeeper and GliderTimer.
GliderKeeper will leave an imprint with its serial number and exact date and time of the flight to maintain data integrity structure. No need for interchanging papers, pencils or Chronometers.
