BTW, I believe the Oudie 2 is still approved for all badges and state record flights. For national and international records I’m not sure about.

Unfortunately, no. An Oudie 2 file is good for regional contests but is not IGC approved so not good for badge flights. An Oudie IGC is.

What about something like this?

I have a Flywithce unit that I always wear around my neck as a backup. Works great and is cheap, but not approved for most records.

It is not approved for Diamonds either, just badges up to Gold.

If you fly a 1-26 and are a member of the 1-26 Association, we have our own regional records. You can access them at our web site. All that is required is a simple flight logger and your in business. We keep track of all the same standard record types 100 to 300km speed, out/return distance n speed, all the triangle types, altitude etc. some of you guys flying higher performance ships should take a look at some of those 1-26 records, they are quite impressive.

Yep, I'm looking for a logger in addition to the flight computer.

I'm currently using XCSoar, and I really like the interface, but it seems to not be too reliable. Limited phone battery life, and it seems to like to crash every few hours. If I'm partway through a task, its really annoying to lose everything.

Many people at my club use the Oudie IGC, and the integration and ability to switch gliders easily looks really attractive.


- For non-IGC logging a spare Android phone running IGCdroid will easily run on the battery for 3 times as long as you may fly. It has always worked reliably for me as a backup logger, self-contained and portable. If the phone has a cell service data plan, that same app can also feed the data into Glideport.aero as you fly (in dribs and drabs as it finds cellphone signal).

For my main logger and computer for some years I've used a Nook running Tophat and connected to the main glider battery so battery life was not an issue. That's less portable between gliders though. A "power bank" external battery can make it portable, but be careful to make sure everything is secure in the cockpit in case of turbulence.
