GliderThrow is a digital Angle/Throw meter and ... Differentials!
This small device can measure the deflections in degrees / millimeters with a resolution of 0.1 degrees and can measure the differential when working together with a second unit since GliderThrow is a system that comprises two sensors, one for each wing or surface of your airplane.
Using a dual system very much simplifies the throw setting of your model by having a direct view of both control surfaces at the same time.
GliderThrow has been initially conceived for setting the aileron and flap throws of a model glider but you will find that it can be used on most every airplane and for a variety of applications as Measuring a dihedral angle of a wing, Measuring Model Airplane Incidence angle , etc.
The data can be viewed through any web browser on a smartphone, Android or iOS, PC or MAC.
The device is secured in place by a strong neodymium magnet placed under the control surface. The rubberized surface of the device prevents it from sliding.
This new version incorporates rechargeable and replaceable Li-Ion coin batteries as well as charging through the most convenient USB-C port. In this way we free the device from the useful life of the battery, in addition to being able to remove it when we are going to be without using the device for a long time.
Navigating through the menus, you can easily visualize the surfaces travel, both degrees and millimeters, as well as configure the surface chord.
Introducing our new GliderThrow Quad/Multi. A new sensors from 3 and 4 and up to 8! of our digital Angle/Throw meter and differentials that, as well as working by themselves alone, work together with the current units 1 and 2 for those users who want to measure the throw of up to 8 control surfaces at the same time and their differentials. Available as a special order.
GliderThrow v3 can help you in a variety of applications as measuring a dihedral angle of a wing, measuring model airplane incidence angle , etc.
