Thanks for testing it.
Scrolling the route planner will have no effect on the map. You have to drag the vertical slider line, the map is then supposed to correlate.
Yes. I agree. I have been planning on either detaching the info window or have an option to hide it.
Keyboard: My idea is that no editing is done with the route planner open. You set the route and departure time and speed with the plugin, and then open the route planner, which is then superimposed on your route. (Actually you should not really need the keyboard at all). I don't know why the keyboard obscures the route planner.
Changing to IFR on resize: Should be fixed now.
(I must admit that I have not tested it for boat at all yet. I have been thinking of making a planner for sailing, one day maybe.)
As Marek said, mobile is very tricky. I am just playing with it, for fun and as a challenge, and really jumping the gun.
You have to drag the vertical slider line,
What line do you mean? I don’t see a vertical slider line. My first screenshot does not show any vertical line or I miss something.
The use of keyboard is just needed to change the speed in route planner. I see in plugin that it’s possible to set an airspeed but not below 10 kt, which quite fast for a normal sail boat. If I set 7 kt in route planner (it is possible even with the keyboard overlapping), the ground speed in flight plan and in the window does not update. However the duration of travel is correct with 7 kt.
On tablet with Chrome it’s quite easy to use it. I’ve tried too on smartphone, but it does not works.
OK it’s what I was calling the time&distance slider. But it does not make the map changing?
EDIT: right now it works. The map changes when moving this slider.
Yes, I see. The info box uses the speed set in the plugin, and also uses this speed to calculate the timestamp. Unfortunately the lowest speed is 10 kt.
I have added an option under
Settingsto select slow speed for the slider.
OK I have got it, by now I am not able to open the route planner. It seems to be blocked.
OK sorry I did not do in the right way, I must create the route first !
Hello I have a bug today (yesterday October 8 was fine)
on 2 differents computers, same error:
Message that appear :
Elevation did not load:
TypeError: Failed to fetch
Flight Plan is great. Thanks.
Thank you!!! Let me know if you think of any improvements.
Can you add native support of Skydemon route files? It saves a route in 6 different file formats including GPX, but it uses a slightly different strings compared to the way your plugin creates a GPX. Also, Skydemon's *.flightplan file has the most proprietary data available.
Try loading a skydemon
Still not able to save in their format.
I also added the mobile sliding-close style. (Dark theme not right yet)
@rittels great! Thank you very much! Saving is not a big deal, because I only use loading function to check weather along my route.
Can you re-check it one more time, please? For some reason, Flight Planner doesn't pick up the first (starting) point from *.flightplan route file.
PS: I re-uploaded my RAR-file, because url was broken.
@igor-320 try now
@rittels thanks! Is it possible to include altitudes as well?
your example goes from level=3000, to level="MSL", then up again to 5000.
Test a few more examples.
@rittels year, the 1st leg = 3000ft msl,
2nd = 5000,
3rd = 4000,
4th = 3000.
The plugin loads altitudes, but they values don't match for some reason.
< PrimaryRoute CourseType="GreatCircle" Start="N501953.00 E0155714.00" Level="3000" CruiseProfile="ISA 1000ft - 2270rpm" Rules="Vfr" PlannedFuel="113.560000"> < RhumbLineRoute To="N500925.45 E0152302.00" Level="MSL" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N500907.45 E0145006.55" Level="5000" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N502259.35 E0152304.85" Level="4000" LevelChange="B" /> < RhumbLineRoute To="N502548.00 E0151959.00" Level="MSL" LevelChange="F" /> < WeightBalance> ... < /WeightBalance> < ReferencedAirfields /> < /PrimaryRoute>
Your example shows: 3000-> MSL -> 5000 -> 4000 -> MSL, but I think I get it now: The PrimaryRoute contains the default level, and if the later routes says only MSL, it implies the default Level.
What does LevelChange mean?
It took me a while to figure out myself how things works (I'm not very tech-savvy person) 😅
MSL is a default value for route altitude that's set in aircraft options (aircraft - edit - climb & descent). In the above's example it's repeated for the first and the last leg of a flight. I checked out my aircraft settings, and it's set for 3000 above mean sea level.
LevelChange="B" (Change level before this leg starts)
LevelChange="F" (Start changing level when this leg starts)
See screenshot below.
Thanks for taking a time to implement it! 👍
PS: you can you download Skydemon and try to make your own tests? It's free in trial mode for 1 month.
