Hi Lonelyman,

The KML format is not particularly appropriate to store telemetry data. Only some of KML files can be used for debriefing in Tacview.

It is possible that Fly is Fun is creating only graphical KML files: which draw things on screen. The problem which these, is that there is no information about the plane position / rotation / time.

Is there any other format supported by Fly is Fun? Maybe GPX or CSV?

Can you share one of these KML file? I will have a look at them to see if we can extract something from them.

Thank you for the data!

It looks like that these gpx files are properly supported by Tacview.

As soon as you have loaded your data, you can use the “Edit Selected Object…” menu option to change the object type to something like “Fixed Wing Aircraft” and its name to the appropriate designation for your plane like DA40 or C172 for example.

Now you should see the proper 3D model as well as the trail displaying the 3D view.

The only thing missing are the roll/picth/yaw. If they are recorded by Fly is Fun, maybe there is another format you can output from it which will expose that information for Tacview.

Oh! Yes, sorry I didn’t think about that.

Indeed, past the trial period of 21-days, you will need Tacview Standard or Advanced to open the GPX files. If this is the case, you should see a “Register your copy of Tacview” whenever you attempt to open such kind of file.
