How to use FlightScope Mevo+ with Swing Catalyst
This support article describes how you can use the FlightScope launch monitor with Swing Catalyst.
Swing Catalyst will integrate and store all the FlightScope data when recording a new take.
The integration connects directly to the device as opposed to the older integration which connects through the FlightScope software.
This article is mainly written for the Mevo+, but the setup steps for other supported devices are the same.
Swing Catalyst integrates directly with the FlightScope device.
Consequently there can only be one (operator) connected to the device at the same time. Therefor the FlightScope software / app must be disconnected from the device when using it with Swing Catalyst.
Note: For some older devices it's possible to use the FlightScope software and Swing Catalyst at the same time, please see our support article.
- Users with a compatible FlightScope launch monitor.
- Swing Catalyst version 10 & up.
- A Swing Catalyst license with launch monitor support.
- Computer with WiFi.
Even though this article is written for Mevo+, the integration supports the following devices:
- X2, X2.1, X2 Elite & X3
- Xi & Xi Plus
- Xi TP
- Xi Range
It's important the launch monitor is configured correctly with regards to positioning and whether or not it's to be used indoors or outdoors.
If you're uncertain about how this is done please refer to the FlightScope user manual.
This cannot be done from Swing Catalyst and must be done from the FlightScope app or Windows desktop software.
If the launch monitor is setup for outdoor mode but you are hitting balls indoors can lead to bad numbers, therefor it's important the setback and configuration is done in the FlightScope app / software before using the launch monitor in Swing Catalyst.
- Sensor configuration such as setting the club type, altitude and distance to tee are not implemented.
- Camera alignment is not implemented.
This means alignment and configuration of the launch monitor must be done through the FlightScope Windows software or phone app to ensure best data accuracy.
Connecting to the Launch Monitor
Connect the launch monitor via WiFi, Ethernet or USB (depending on the launch monitor, note: Mevo+ only supports WiFi, not USB).
- Go to Settings by clicking the gears icon in the bottom left from the startup screen.
- Select "Hardware".
- Switch Launch Monitor to the "ON" position and check "Use as trigger".
- The launch monitor should be visible in the list below the "ON" button. If it's not listed try clicking "Search".
- Select the device you wish to use.
Example (FlightScope software running at the same time)
If the FlightScope software is running you will see FlightScope (Software) as a separate entry in the launch monitor list. Make sure to select the device, not the software integration.
- Wait a few minutes and press search again, the launch monitor might not be ready to connect.
- Verify that Windows is connected to the Launch Monitor's WiFi network (note not all devices FlightScope devices support WiFi).
- For non Mevo+ models depending on the device & connectivity type please refer to the device manual and try to reconnect the device. If USB or Ethernet try disconnecting and reconnecting the device.
Verify that the connection works with the FlightScope software (if this works it could be a firewall related issue, see below).
- Click the start menu or press the Windows key on your keyboard and type: Firewall
- Open "Firewall & network protection", click "Allow an app through firewall".
- Click on the list and type: Motion Catalyst.
- Click "Change Settings" if changes are necessary.
- Make sure "Private" and "Public" are checked.
- Verify that the "Use as trigger" checkbox is enabled in Swing Catalyst Settings -> Launch Monitor.
- Make sure that no other applications are connected to the launch monitor, make sure to disconnect.
- Is the Launch monitor is positioned correctly and is set to the correct mode (indoor / outdoor)?
- Try to add a reflective sticker (from FlightScope) to the ball.
- Try connecting to the launch monitor through the FlightScope app or desktop software, do you get ball / club data there?
- If that works try to follow the firewall troubleshooting steps above.
- Try adjusting the delay compensation, see the bottom of this article.
