The Balloon Live project started in 2018 as a follow-up project to replace the FAI Balloon Competition Loggers introduced in 2009 by the New Technology Subcommittee of the FAI Ballooning Commission. The project has a larger scope. It replaces the existing loggers by a mobile app and an additional sensor box to guarantee a constant and equal quality of the position (GPS) and altitude (GPS and barometric) measurements. Additionally the live transmission of the data becomes reality and opens a lot of new possibilities for live coverage and tracking of the competition. Watchmefly.net is an essential part of the project as platform for data recording, visualisation and scoring.
Watchmefly.net has been updated with a great new feature. Discover the new Watchmefly Live tracker that allows your crew and friends to follow your track live when flying with the FAI Balloon Live app. Create your Live tracker link and share it with your friends and they will see live updates of your position, loggermarks and declarations.More exciting things are happening on WatchMeFly. We have just released the Live Tracker as part of the FAI Balloon Live project. This allows your crew and friends to see your track, logger events and current location when you are using the Balloon Live app during a competition.
First feedbacks on Balloon Live from Naleczow Balloon CupBalloon Cup - Nałęczów 2019 is over and we won it confidently with a crazy ~4800pts margin. We did all 6 flights and 27 tasks. It was not at all easy, but we were focused and patient enough to be in the right place at the right time. It wouldn't be possible without the team, so Robertas, Neringa and Juozas are there in the top together with the pilot. Golden thank you! 🏆
Congrats to winners 🥈 Mateusz Rękas, 🥉 Agnė Simonavičiūtė and all the participants, we all did a lot of work.
It was great teamwork together with Agnė, Dovydas and Julija, keep it up.
Cheers to the organisers, Augis and the team for a great event and beautiful crowded night glows. 🎈
Kudos to Julius for superfast scoring and the whole FAI Balloon Live app team for bringing loggers to the 21st century. There are things to improve, but we all are here to do it together.
We're tired, happy and that gulaszowa in the closing ceremony was just perfect 🍲🤪
