  1. Hi to all, I am paragliding pilot. In paragliding it's usual to record flights with GPS and share the tracklogs in a servers. The most popular server is the International Leonardo (http://paraglidingforum.com/leonardo/tracks/world/alltimes/) - on this server you can see thousands of flights all over the world with paragliders, hanggliders, sailplanes and others... I see that it's popular to video your flights with many cameras mounted on the legs, arms, chest, helmet and etc, but it seems that it's not popular at all to record the flight with GPS. I'm wondering why!? It will be very interesting to see at least one wingsuit flight logged with general purpose GPS or with specialized free-flight instrument (Flymaster, Brauniger, Flytec ...) and uploaded in one of the servers. It will be interesting for me and for you also! It will be good for the sport to have place for sharing flights... All you will need is GPS, cable (usually standard micro-USB cable) and computer with Windows. We use this software to download the tracklogs - GPSDump (http://www.gethome.no/stein.sorensen/body_gpsdump.htm). It downloads the data from the GPS and creates an IGC file. You can upload later this tracklog file to any Leonardo server. The process takes 5 - 10 minutes. I will appreciate if someone makes this!!! Thanks in advance! Daniel
