How it works?

Easy Operation


GliderTimer will Manage your rounds and will "beep" you the countdowns for your mini contest.

When landing bring your GliderKeeper into Wi-Fi mode: Just take note of your landing distance and move the plane´s fuselage into vertical ("nosedown"). If GliderKeeper is loaded with Fw 1.23 or later, during the scanning phase, it will detect the presence of GliderTimer and automatically will transfer Flight Data to GliderTimer.

Then GliderTimer will compare the timing for launch and landing to be within the working time.

Then via the buttons in GliderTimer input the landing distance and save the data.

GliderTimer will calculate the current score table automatically.

Repeat for all the planes in the contest.
