Linus,

Your program looks great! I've actually been following the thread for months.

I do have Parallels running Win 7 Pro on my MacBook but I'm a Mac user first and prefer to keep it simple so am going to wait until you have a downloadable, easy to set up version for OS X Yosemite (10.10.x). It would also be cool if you eventually had an iOS version too.

Keep up the great work!

Thanks,

A Mac version will come eventually. I do not want to bite off more than I can chew, regarding support etc. So no real timeframe on when that will happen.

There is a new bugfix release out v2.7.2, download from http://linlar.org/vbc

Only fix is a sanity check on the import of vbar logs, if you don't have a problem you don't need it.

Seems like I had a small bug in the release (thank you Olivier). I messed up the weekly graph where models and batteries have been switched when asking the database..

It's not critical and have been fixed. I'm waiting a few days for a bugfix release if something else pops up.

Looks great all fixed for me.

Not sure if anyone is crazy like me with databases being clean. But I've been adding and removing a lot in the analyzer so I wanted to see about compacting the database. Just preparing for the years of use this application is going to get.
I'm sure with the small amount of data in here it's probably not even needed. But I just loaded some huge images in before I thought about how it would affect the size so I wanted to compact after replacing them with smaller ones.

SQLite is pretty simple and the command line shell can be downloaded from here http://sqlite.org/download.html

Running the following command with the path to my database chopped a couple megs off of the size of the database.

sqlite3 C:\Users\admin\.vcontrol.db "VACUUM FULL;"

Description of the command:
The VACUUM command cleans the main database by copying its contents to a temporary database file and reloading the original database file from the copy. This eliminates free pages, aligns table data to be contiguous, and otherwise cleans up the database file structure.
The VACUUM command may change the ROWID of entries in tables that do not have an explicit INTEGER PRIMARY KEY. The VACUUM command only works on the main database.

This is just a disclaimer...

You can of course do what you want with your DB, but it's your responsibility. Always do a backup if you do a trick like this. I do not endorse it since I have not tried it.

I imagine SQLlite is like all other databases, they reclaim the space internally but never normaly shrink filesizes.

Hi Linus,

is it possible to import log files from models without UI-Sensor?

This would be nice to read the log files and count the flights.

This comes up from time to time, I think I need to clarify my stance on this.

No, I will not do this at this time. I just don't feel it will be good enough, and there is rumoured sullotions for smaller models coming, ESC with built buitlin VControl telemetry. And tellme for Kontronik ESCs.

I want it to be correct, every flight should have correct flight time and basic telemetry. Just checking the VBar log doesn't even give correct flighttime. I would have to guess even more too see if we have a "powerup" or an actual flight. It's not up to the standards I have set for this program. Everything should be automatic and correct!

Hopefully we will see some new hardware next year. I'm not locking the door and throwing away the key, but I am locking it firmly for now.

I have the Vcontrol coming and I cant wait to try this out. I must say you made a lot of our lives easier and I also have to admit your instruction's simplicity is something Mikado should take note of. Once i successfully implement the software I will make a contribution to your site.
