    I have noticed that Flytrex is not calculating distance in miles correctly on my recent missions. I have not really dug into it but the last two missions I flew show the following:

    Mission shows .8 miles for a mission that the Flytrex CSV file shows as 4399 which corresponds to about what I saw before I turned around on the vision app. So this is pretty close to accurate.

    Next mission shows .6 miles and the Flytrex CSV shows 4950'. My vision app confirmed this distance live. This should have been closer to .9 mile.

    So apparently the site is not converting properly for the web display or at least part of the time.

    Personally I think they should show feet anyway and not miles.

    And their charts show time, temp, speed and altitude but no distance ?

    Hi rrmccabe :)

    Can you post the links to the two missions showing this problem? We'll review this quickly and see what might be causing this. :)
