At the SSA Conference in January, 2011, Paul Remde of Cumulus Soaring created a video in which he demos the new LXNav Nano Flight Recorder. This device is the smallest IGC-approved flight recorder on the market and, to my knowledge, the least expensive. With an 11-hour battery life and the low price, this minuscule flight recorder should be a popular item among sailplane pilots this year.
