Re: Dialing your kestrel in
It can be. The problem I have seen is when changing elevation etc from the std airport setting. If the change is big I have seen some discrepencies in figures. It kind of reminds me of using a drop cam, if your close enough to your "set" conditions it is really good, if the conditions are alot different you need to direct dial so to speak. Honestly if your using station pressure correctly in the program the elevation is not as critical. The elevation still needs to be close but if it is off 100' it doesn't make much difference. SOme guys have wanted to know how to correct them in the field. This has been the most effective solution for me.
