    I’m excited about the prospects the new LabrRadar will afford me when my newly ordered unit arrives in a few weeks with it’s necessary accessories (Airgun Mic, USB battery pack and SD card., etc.). No ballesitic guru here, but I love the potential this technology may prove to provide. Mutiple data points for each and every projectile fired down range at varying assigned distances seems the ultimate in feeding this geeky poor sod.  I currently have the Caldwell Chrony which for the most part has served me well. It can be a little finicky like most chronys and knock wood, I have yet to shoot mine with a stray pellet. I love the Caldwell software program making it so easy to work with and rename shot strings and do some calculations so effortlessly. 

    Excited as I am, I am concerned about about the fact LabRadar just puts out a simple .CSV file which, yes, can be loaded into any spreadsheet, but therein lies the rub. It’s just the raw data. One has to add their own calculations for manipulating much of that to be meaningful, or open up Chairgun, or Sterlok Pro and try and work from there. For such a sophisticated system, it seems woefully lacking they don’t even provide a working spreadsheet template incorporating some basic needed calculations for shot strings. Not to mention relegating the user to physically hand write on paper each and every change made such as power settings or say change in regulator pressure. It’s my understanding they will sometime in the future be doing something with it’s bluetooth built-in capability but they tell me that may be a long time coming. 

    It’s my understanding RSI’s Windows Shooting Lab software works with the new LabRadar but the last time I searched posts on the Yellow they didn’t feel it was much use for airguns. Maybe that’s changed as those posts are years old??? I can’t seem to get a hold of anyone at RSI to ask. 

    Do any of you using LabRadar have your own customized spreadsheet or know of anyone who does that might be willing to share or sell?

    ClearedHot;

    If you send me a .csv file from the device with information on what is in each field, I’d be interested in working up a spread sheet that would do some of the calculations you want done.  I don’t care what pellet or caliber, just raw data I can work with to create a functional spread sheet.

    Well thank so much Mike. That’s very kind of you!  Apologies proffered for not responding sooner as I haven’t been on here much. The fact is I decided to cancel my order for the time being because other priorities unexpectedly took precedence. Therefore, I don’t have a CSV file for you, although, Yarah has the radar unit and has posted pictures of the the raw data on the yellow if you really wanted to take a hand in working a spreadsheet. 

    Thank you so much for your offer. 

    Most sincerely, 

    Rock

    Send me your email and I will email the file to you as I doubt the above is of any use.

    Thank you Kangaroo. That’s so very kind of you! I have temporarily put off the purchase of the Labradar for a short while but I would be delighted to get your file.
