Bombsight wind heading calculator

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Made a very simple wind heading calculator for use in bombsight mode. It is a simple web page with javascript, so it runs well on mobile phones or tablets (at least android).

Github project (relevant code is Javascript inside index.html)

Some screenshots below

A quick update:

 

I've tried to make it more smartphone friendly and now if your screen is under a certain width (in pixels) it will only show one knob (plane hdg, wind hdg, wind speed) and you can switch between them with left/right arrows.

 

If you have problems let me know.

What does the Wind Speed dial do?   The output is always the same as the input so why do we put it in?

Hehe. So in fact wind speed does not do anything.

 

I left it there for two reasons:

1 - to have everything you need at the result section (even if it is not changed)

2 - I like knobs

I have this on github with MIT license, anyone can use it. It's javascript (inside the index.html page), you'll probably just need the calculate_heading function.

 

Cheers!

If you could give us the logic behind I could develop a offline android app, no ads obviously

A windows application could be cool too.
