Talking DISC GOLF TRACKER!

Hello! We are two students in highschool taking an engineering capstone class and we need your help. We are gathering information to justify our product. We are developing a tracker that can track your discs location and it's flight stats, all while being small enough to not mess with the discs weight too much. What we need from you is to take the following survey.

Thank you for your time,

Not interested in a locator, could be interested in something that tracks flight stats......but it depends on exactly what it's tracking. I can see flight path & distance. Speed, spin, angle? Something else? Might be interesting.

You may already be completely aware of this, but Nite Ize used to sell a disc golf light that was about the diameter of a half dollar, the thickness of the rim of the disc, and weighed 10 grams. I had a couple of them and loved them for night golf. If you can keep something that size and weight, it shouldn't affect the flight too much at all.

However, I think the big issue with those lights was, you had to physically punch a hole in the center of a disc to permanently attach the light. So you were saying, "this is the only disc I'm going to use this with." And I'm pretty sure most people aren't going to trust a sticky backside.

Yeah, that'd be really cool. I'd especially love to see my RPM's and then be able to compare it to pros and see just how far I really have to go.

Doesn't do as much as Tobu, but weighs a little less:
Disc Beeper
I've had and used two of them for about 4 years.

Can you use them on multiple discs? Do they stick well?
