Semi-automatically mark release point. A boon for OLC
« on: December 27, 2015, 12:59:04 PM »
Knowing where one released is important for OLC triangle flights.

Automatically detecting a release is hard - I almost always have to adjust my OLC claims because it thinks the turn to crosswind at 2-300' is where I released.

The CN should be aware of when a flight begins.  So at this time pop up a "Mark Release" dialog box similar to "Resume Task".  When selected, a temporary marked point is created.

If I've created a recreational task, it might be nice to add this point as the start and finish.  Could be a "yes/no" dialog with default to no when selecting "Mark Release"
