Climb and Speed averaged over 4 second intervals.

These values may be lower than those shown by a flight instrument, which has access to continuous raw data.

Average Speed around course is measured from Start to Finish points.

Track Length is the cumulative distance between track points from Takeoff to Landing.

You can change the default units displayed - see the Options page.

My first time at the Beacon and after watching the sky gods climb out I thought I'd try for a 50k triangle. I quickly realised on the 2nd and longest leg that the drift and my slow speed was not going to cut it, so opted to try and get back to take-off. It took me a while, seemingly spending all the return leg chasing sunlit patches and ploughed fields, with a couple of low saves too. I made it eventually, sneaking back over the ridge with a couple of hundred feet to spare. Then I entered my flight and the XCL said I'd done a small triangle after all.
