Test the GPS on your table first to see how long it takes to lock. The first time in a new location can take longer. Then turn it off and back on to see how long it takes this time.I'm just wanting to give my GPS time to get a good fix. Maybe it's not as big of a deal as I am making it in my head, but I'd rather do that on "my time" rather than wasting everyone else's messing around up at the pad.
If you fly with a Tripoli club, then I think the RSO and LCO might have a different opinion. Deliberately ignoring a rule is not clever. Just remember who pays the insurance to cover your hobby. As David points out, the flight is not affected.
While I have some sympathy for this reaction, you can't ignore rules and still fly with TRA and expect insurance coverage.
Did this ever get produced? Don't see it on the home page. Thanks.Anticipating the questions, I'm going to put together a document telling users how to "safe" the various Eggtimer altimeters and the WiFi Switch. It should be done in a day or two... I'll link to it at the top of the Eggtimer home page.
