FlightScope Technology has taken sport to a level of competition unlike anything seen before.
More accurate sports measurement systems have resulted in improvements in many aspects of many sports – not only for players, but for spectators, too. One such technological advent is that of 3D ball tracking. This is great for golfers, for example, who are looking for a ball tracking monitor or 3D golf radar and a method of golf swing analysis that provides genuinely useful feedback. If you’ve been wondering how 3D Doppler tracking works to enhance your game, wonder no more!
The secret of FlightScope’s 3D ball tracking success lies in the patented phased array tracking technology that is used in the device. The two main technological aspects of the FlightScope 3D motion tracking device are its radar technology (very similar to that which is used in the military), and its advanced industrial electronics.
So what does this mean for you in a practical sense?
Well, it means you have access to a level of ball measurement and ball tracking that is difficult to beat.

Whether you use FlightScope indoors or outside deployment is a simple and quick process with set up only taking 3 minutes. To successfully use FlightScope you will need:
FlightScope is very easy to set up and requires merely alignment behind the ball, in line with the target. No special needs are equired for calibration and the setup is very repeatable, even in different weather conditions.
To get the most reliable and accurate data when using FlightScope indoors, please ensure that the following requirements are met:
The distance from the tee to the hitting net should not be less than 13-14 ft. The distance from the tee to the FlightScope Sensor should be 8 – 10 ft.
Please ensure that there are no obstructions between the FlightScope Sensor and the tee. Ideally fluorescent lights should be avoided; incandescent, halogen or sodium lights are acceptable. If the location has fluorescent lights, aluminium insect screen available from any hardware store (Lowe’s or The Home Depot) can be used to screen the lights. Also ensure that there are no other apparatus that could cause electrical interference, for example fans, air conditioners, etc nearby.
Metal Stickers for direct spin measurement
Due to the short ball flight distance in an indoor installation, FlightScope requires that the ball be marked with a metal sticker to get accurate spin readings. Only one sticker is required per ball. The golf ball is placed with the sticker facing the screen, away from the clubface.
No PC is required when using the FlightScope X2 and it can be operated directly using certain smart phones and tablets (supports iPad, iPhone, iTouch PLUS Android OS). Having built in Wi-Fi, it can connect remotely to your laptop or PC.
