Allen, I like the way you think, and your product is instrumental to how we've operated for the last seven years. We're doing the same as Sam for nearly the same reasons I suspect. Here is our profile: I'm stuck flying a desk and Tanya goes out for some practice on a blowy day. Watching the aprs I can see the whole sequence, critique how flight lead is compensating for winds, etc...
. But back in the pattern, things are surely "sporty" with given winds. Base to final turn... (hair on back of neck given that I'm sitting in a chair somewhere.) The very best track point of the entire flight is to see the airplane taxiing back to the hangar. That is the important part for me in that scenario that happens often. The rest is just gravy.
Now I'm ready to get my geek on and do some very simple text messaging, but I might standby to see Pete's next prototype
