IMPORTANT - New release of BalloonLive-App
  • Posted: 3 May 2022 - 14:53

Dear pilots,

A new version of BalloonLive will be released around May 10th.

We have been informed by the developers that IOS-users can download it for free.

For Android-users - due to some technical issues - a small fee of 0.05€ has to be paid.

Once the new version of BalloonLive is launched, credits will also need to be purchased if you want to participate in  competitions using the Balloon Live Application.

For example, when you will compete in the Belgian Balloon Trophy, you will have to use 1 credit.

The expected cost per pilot, per credit will probably be around 10€.


For your participation in the Belgian Balloon Trophy 2022, we therefore ask you all to provide the new version of BalloonLive, as well as the latest firmware of the Balloon Sensor.

When the update is released, BalloonLive will also communicate about this matter.


Kind regards,

Jonas Maes

Flight Report Forms - Digital via Watchmefly.net

Dear pilots,

Similar as last year, we will use the digital FRF during this competition.

The advantage of this is that the scorers will receive your FRF sooner, and therefore results can be calculated and published faster.

For those who are not familiar yet with this digital FRF, please take some time to look how everything works.

You can find an instruction video on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fqxaAitKJro&t=3s or check the video's at the learning center on Watchmefly.net/learning/videos.php .
