While extremely small and light, the GPS-Logger 2 has excellent features and capabilities. With a recording rate of up to 10 Hz and a micro-SD card, recordings of almost any length with high resolution are possible.
Telemetry over a 2.4 GHz system with a return channel is now an integral part of the UniLog 2. In line with our philosophy of supporting as many systems as possible, the UniLog 2 is compatible with, Jeti Duplex, Multiplex M-Link, Graupner HoTT, Futaba, JR DMSS, FrSky and Spektrum (using spektrum adapters).
Your choice of telemetry must be specified in the GPS-Logger 2 only once in the settings menu. This is done via the PC program "GPS Converter" (found on the SM modell bau website) or with the UniDisplay Unit (see link below). New GPS-Logger 2's are shipped with HoTT selected.
For an accurate height measurement, even when operating with a TEK nozzle (see link below), a second pressure sensor is installed, so irrespective of the speed correct height data is provided.
The built-in 3-axis accelerometer provides information about the airframes stresses in flight. The acceleration data of all three axis are recorded and displayed at each waypoint and also sent via telemetry.
When operating with Multiplex M-Link , all data on the sensor bus is automatically logged by the GPS-Logger 2 and also written to the memory card> MSB Datalogger.
In addition to its own measured values, the GPS-Logger 2 can also read the complete data of our UniLog 1 + 2 and UniSens-E live via a direct connection cable and write the data onto the memory card.
Via the UniDisplay (see link below) all measured values of the GPS-Logger 2 can be viewed live. Of course, all settings and alarms can also be comfortably programmed via the display.
The presentation and analysis of the data can be viewed in Google Earth. For conversion to the Google Earth format use our free software "SM GPS Converter" (found on the SM Modell Bau website). The resulting data will be compatible with the standard version of Google Earth.
The well-known LogView software also supports the GPS-Logger 2. Log veiw can also convert the GPS data to the Google Earth format. In addition, the values can be displayed in a normal curve form or table form and much more.
For those using Windows (Java), Mac or Linux you can also use GNU DataExplorer for the evaluation of the data.
Whether glider, aerobatic plane, helicopter, HLG or slow flyer, the GPS-Logger 2 can be used due to its low weight and compact size. Of course, the GPS-Logger 2 is not only suitable for model flying. It can also be installed in RC boats, RC cars, etc.
The included instructions for the GPS-Logger 2 are in German; however, you can peruse a translated version of the GPS-Logger 2 instructions here. This document covers most if not all the aspects of configuring and using the GPS-Logger 2. Many thanks to Richard Whitehead for translating them.
