Spot landing distance recorder

Recommended Posts

This is a question for any programmers out there. (Actually, I'm not sure if this should go in the scenery forum, so sorry if I've posted this in the wrong place.)At the real-life glider club where I fly (Harris Hill, Elmira, New York State) we have an annual contest called Snowbird every fall. Part of this contest is the spot landing competition. Each glider lands and then attempts to come to a stop as close as possible to an orange traffic cone on the runway. Distances range from twenty feet (really bad) to a few inches. I'm working on a virtual version of the airfield and the contest in MSFS 2002, and I would like to know if it would be possible to somehow program a module (I think that's the word) that would measure the distance and then display it on the screen in feet and inches. I'm not asking anyone to do it for me, I'm just wondering if it's possible. (Although if anybody would like to do it, I'd be eternally grateful!) :)Ryan the Glidiator
