Is there a way to detect when the plane with a parachute lands and collides onto the grounds?

Hi everyone,

Do you know if there is a way to determine the timestamp when the plane reaches to the ground when parachute is open? Is it implemented in the software now?

If no what kind of conditions would you consider to detect the ground collision event?

I think the accelerometers that are used to detect vehicle attitude should show a spike when the vehicle hits the ground. Here is a link to a video showing how to monitor the accelerometers real time:
