DashWare paragliding gauges

Dashware

DashWare is free and easy to use software that allows you to add highly-customizable telemetry overlays to your flight videos. Read more about and download Dashware on their official site: http://www.dashware.net/

You can use data from your GPS/vario tracklog together with my gauges as overlay to your video’s. The gauges can be downloaded for free, but I’d appreciate if you would refer to this site in your video or description.

Below you will find five different (sets of) gauges:

  1. derived from the B737 Primary Flight Display
  2. based on next gen Head Up Displays (HUD)
  3. based on an analog variometer
  4. based on the IQ Alto Vario
  5. a light avionics strip.

B737 Primary Flight Display avionics


The gauges are not really minimalistic but may enhance you video, or part of it, with the ‘B737 Primary Flight Display’ avionics derived style tapes. You might also want to use the gauges for flight analysis purposes or in presentations.

There are 4 gauges you may want to download (use right mouse button and select “Save target as…“):

The Central Vertical Speed Indicator is a simplification of the Attitude Indicator, showing only the climb/sink rate.

Head Up Display


The HUD overlay consists of just one gauge.

HUD

When applying the HUD gauge, align the horizontal heading indicator (the line with the numbers 260, 270 and 280) with the horizon. This will result in partly hiding the lower compass (approx one third), as shown in the video clip above.

Analog variometer

The variometer overlay consists of just one gauge.

My paragliding activities

In 2014 I started paragliding with Air TimeParagliding Sports in Greifenburg, Austria. In 2016 I got my Paragliding Pilot License.

I had the pleasure and privilege to be able to fly the past years with both my daughter and son. A selection of video clips you will find below.
