Default Inexpensive portable IGC data recorders

Hi all,

I'm doing some research for our club. I'm trying to investigate what options are available for 'inexpensive' portable IGC accepted data recorders. Our club would use them for SSA badges and OLC competitions.

We would like them to be portable so we can use them in different club ships, rather than being panel mounted.

As to what 'inexpensive' means - less than $1000 U.S., preferably less than $800.

I did look on the FAI page, ( https://www.fai.org/sites/default/fi...018-2-14_0.pdf ) and there's a lot to go through.

I'm aware of the Nano, Nano III, Colbri II and Colbri X. Any others that I'm missing? Any recommendations?

Thanks.

Mark


SeeYou Recorder is a free iPhone app that works with OLC. I'm not sure if it can be used for badge flights. The only down side is that it doesn't have an engine monitor, so it can't be used with motorgliders.

Motor-glider owners are by definition less concerned with super low cost ;-(

It is worth mentioning in this thread the IMI Erixx - cheaper logger with top level IGC approval but it needs external power.

Consider paying more for a multi purpose device - Powerflarm or Oudie IGC.

Position Recorders are Approved on a Country basis (not by IGC). For US the
only Position Recorders approved a

FlyWithCE Flight Recorder FR300 -
https://www.fai.org/sites/default/fi...al_ssa_v3a.pdf

FlyWithCE Flight Recorder - As far as I am aware, this unit is not longer
manufactured.

So in US, the only alternative to a fully fledged IGC Recorder is the
FlyWithCE Flight Recorder FR300 (which isn't a Flight Recorder, but a
Position Recorder).

All this information is available from https://www.fai.org/igc-documents

Just because we like nice toys, doesn't necessarily mean that we aren't otherwise frugal.

You are talking about See You Mobile, not See You Recorder. See You recorder is only a flight recorder. It doesn't let you look at your flight traces at all. It is a free app.

longe
manufactured.

FR300 - recorders are still for sale on the manufactures website. They
are very simple to use, just turn it on. Charging is via any USB port, I
have tried to flatten the battery on one, but mine runs for 12+ hours
before needing changing.

I never said the FR300 had seased production, just the earlier model.
