Hero emulation by son_of_flubber

New glider on the way. Would like objective opinions from pilots who have flown with both ClearNav and LXNav and spent enough time to make an honest, educated evaluation. Let me preface this with the information that I have flown with ClearNav since being an early adopter. Both appear to have...

a ground instruction class on self launch procedures and operations to be held during the convention might benefit a few pilots. I know it's a bit late.... Maybe it's too dependent on self-launch type?
