    • Evaluate and convert telemetry data from copter (Typhoon H, Typhoon H Plus, Q500, Chroma, 350QX, Yuneec Breeze, Mantis Q and H520) as KML- or KMZ-files (flight path for Google Earth), GPX for other map services, for import to Dashware (not for Breeze due to missing profile) in order to get telemetry data in videos or as HTML-Report for documentation.
    • Overview with some important information for the flights in a table form (ceiling, max. air speed, max. distance, warnings, etc).
    • Browse raw data of telemetry files.
    • Graphic elevation histogram and voltage curve.
    • Analyze a predefined data area to see i.e average speed, climb rate…

    - output format for RaceRender added (without profile)
    - you can select between absolute and relative altitude in KML export (both have advantages and disadvantages)
    - new feature 'Quick analysis' shows 3 selectable histograms at the same time for better analysis
    - you can cut a (important) part from the FlightLog into a new FlightLog for deeper analysis.
