Good call on the masking tape; though I like the permanent record, would be easier to write the previous total on the beginning of the tape and just start counting from there with ticks and crosses, instead of adding up dots.

No need for a dedicated checker, as I keep a cheap (verified calibrated) multimeter in the car. About the size of two 9V batteries put together, so more than pocketable.

As I'm still working on getting landings completely solid in crosswinds, my timer is pretty much just my one-minute mark (I haven't noticed a difference on the DX6i as far as the last-minute beep on the timer)... land as soon as safe, but with plenty of time in which to manage it. Little less flying, but also safer and better for the batteries' longevity.
