Flight planner R planner not conform to average speed

above all thanks for the flight planner plugin. I have dreamed of this for years and you made it
I fly paraglider, type bivy flight (walk and fly), when the weather is bad the average speed might be low
-> when we create the flight plan, the minimum average speed is 9 km/h, it would be good to have access to lower average speed down to 1 km/h mini
-> once we created the flight plan the R planner allows edit the average speed, however if the window appears larger on the timeline, on the car hiking, airgram and VFR features, the pointer still shows the time according to the 9km/h mini
also would he huge to have access to other models than ECMWF
@flyinfrog Hello, thank you for feedback. The route planner cannot show longer routes (+20 days), since we do not forecast the weather for this period ahead. It will show you how many days the route will take, but not the weather, thus the limited timeline.
@flyinfrog Thanks for using the plugin!!!
In the plugin, you can go settings, then go to the speed range slider, and select
slow. Then you can go to 2km/h. I can make it lower if you want.
The speed set in the plugin, is sent to the route planner. Setting the speed in the route planner, will not set the speed in the plugin (at the moment).
Loading other models is possible, but not available yet. It would mean loading each point separately. (the same as selecting a higher VFR level currently. ) However, I use a lot more points when calculating the airspeed, and will probably take too long. Will try this when I have the time.
