TimingBeam – RC Lap Timing

TimingBeam is an RC lap timing software for RC racing enthusiasts. It is designed to talk directly with Bluetooth-based RC Lap Timing Systems like DirtChampDesign DCD TimeR, GY-FX LapMonitor and PocketPit Lap Timing System for recording lap times without the need of running any timing software, such as DCD LapR, on a computer.

TimingBeam can record lap times generated by multiple IR-based transponders simultaneously. Moreover, multiple TimingBeam apps may also connect to the same lap timing device to support concurrent access of lap times by multiple users. It offers an intuitive and easy-to-use user interface for logging lap times, managing practice and racing sessions, rendering lap time charts and race ranking charts, reporting verbal lap times and race positions in realtime, … and many more.

TimingBeam is portable and it allows immediate access to your vital lap timing data through your Android device while you are still at the drivers’ stand. TimingBeam speaks to you your successive lap times and race positions while you are racing your way through the field. TimingBeam keeps you informed about your performance lap-by-lap so that you can keep your eyes at your race car and focus at your racing.

V4.1 Multiplayer and racing features are further extended to GY-FX LapMonitor Lap Timing System

Following the release of GY-FX LapMonitor to the market in 2017Q2, this popular RC lap timing app is further extended to support this newly released hardware, which is also a Bluetooth-based lap timing system. TimingBeam may now directly connect to the little LapMonitor device and to record the lap times reported by it. Moreover, by making use of the multiplayer and the racing features introduced since V2.0 and V3.0 respectively, multiple racers may now connect to the same LapMonitor device to access their lap times, to race against each other and be benefited from the lap-by-lap updates on their relative race positions as well as the timing gaps separating them.

V4.0 Multiplayer and racing features are now available for Pocket Pit Lap Counting System, as well as support for Zeppin Racing’s IR Transponders

The latest TimingBeam V4.0 is further extended to work with the new TBScanner firmware developed by our genius engineers at RCRacingware. By upgrading the firmware of a Pocket Pit Lap Timer with this new TBScanner, the orange-box lap timer may now capture IR signals sent by multiple Pocket Pit’s IR Transponders simultaneously. As such, a single Pocket Pit Lap Timer is now sufficient to capture the lap times produced by multiple race cars each having a different Transponder ID. Moreover, TBScanner is also able to understand the IR signals emitted by Zeppin Racing’s IR Transponders, thus making the orange Pocket Pit box the first multi-protocol lap counting system in the world. Owners of Pocket Pit’s and Zeppin Racing’s IR Transponders may now benefit from the multiplayer and racing features of TimingBeam.

Our genius engineers at RCRacingware even took a step further to release a new PC program called PPUpdateFX to streamline the firmware update process whereby the new TBScanner could be installed by just one mouse click -- delivering a hassle-free experience for our fellow racers.

The new PPUpdateFX program and TBScanner firmware are immediately available and they may be downloaded from this website: https://goo.gl/Rr5JsC
