Disable automatic On Block log

Zwischennetz' problem really affects most helicopter operators, including myself. Zwischennetz describes the behaviour we regularly observe very well.

Hi Tim,

We are doing aerial work with helicopters which involves a lot of really low and slow flying, including sometimes extended stationary hovering in only a few meters height. Theoretically skydemon would be an ideal tool for us. I can import complex routes including several hundred waypoints (eg. overhead transmission line towers) and skydemon performs perfectly and rock solid on IOS.
However, the automatic landing detection creates two major issues for us:
1. Every time a landing is falsely detected, the map zoom jumps back to the specified default zoom level.
2. The logs are seperated into several fragments with sometimes long gaps in between.

Is there any way to completely disable the automatic On Block logging? We only need pure manual logging.

For our use case skydemon would be an absolutely superior tool if we could solve this one issue.

I believe this would also solve the issues of the aerobatic guys:
