XCSoar Setup

Cruise flight

The main page for the cruise flight and the template for all other pages.

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. Contest distance (WeGlide, OLC)
  5. Near airspace vertical
  6. Speed ground
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. Thermal average over all
  10. Near airspace horizontal

 

Circling page

This page automatically appears when thermaling. I use the auto infobox setting for this purpose – very helpful.

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. Thermal gain
  5. Thermal average
  6. Circle diameter
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. Near airspace vertical
  10. Thermal average overall

 

Assigned Area Task

One special page for flying an Assigned Area Tasks.

 

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. AAT delta time
  5. Speed task average
  6. MacCready setting
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. AAT time
  10. AAT speed around target

Airspace page

Special page with all relevant information next to an airspace. The screen also includes a cross section view which is very helpful for a better understanding of the airspace structure.

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. Time UTC
  5. Near airspace vertical
  6. Flight level
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. Standby Radio Frequency
  10. Nearest airspace horizontal

 

Final Glide

Usually I don´t use this page. For some pilots it might be useful to compare the current glide ratio with the required glide ratio.

 

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. Time UTC
  5. GR instantaneous (glide ratio)
  6. MacCready setting
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. Task arrival time (ETA)
  10. Final GR (glide ratio)

Start line crossing

Very important for the start of a task in competitions. Especially for SGP tasks you need to manage your speed, time and hight at the same time.

 

  1. Next waypoint (deviation)
  2. Altitude (Auto)
  3. Next distance (waypoint)
  4. Start open/close countdown
  5. Start open/close countdown at reaching
  6. Speed ground
  7. Height AGL
  8. Final distance
  9. Time UTC
  10. Distance takeoff
