1st flight in years
First Flight To Solo
1st weeks condor tasks
easy a triangle in slovania
moderate out and return in the rockies
challenging out and return in the alpine arc
post your flight tracks if you complete any tasks
all tasks are open to any plane choice
i think easy will always be open to any plane class moderate and challenging may be restricted to a class at times in the future
each week I will post a new group of tasks here tasks will be as follows;
1 light thermal conditions weak lift little to no wind beginners task.. goal staying up as long as possible while flying a short easy task
2 moderate to strong thermal conditions moderate distance speed task
3 moderate wind ridge task with or without thermals
4 strong challenging conditions higher winds with or without thermals longer distance task
5 short distance high altitude wave task
moderate to challenging tasks may be winch or aerotow beginner tasks will all be aerotow
complete 1 or more tasks
new tasks posted every Friday to get credit for task completion you must post your flight tracks by the following Friday, and although you do not have to complete the task, you must finish as much as you are able safely.
please also be aware that freedomswings.org daily dedicated server is live and available on condor clubs server list
each weeks 5 tasks will be added to the dedicated servers task rotation
1st tasks posted Friday may 12th and will go on indefinately
Wave bye bye to the ground and fly as high as you can.
Some tips to safely complete this task:
post your task results and flight track
strong crosswind takeoff and landing
ridge strong lift easy climbs but requires excess airspeed to cross ridges upwind
wave narrow wave forms near turnpoint fairly decent climb rates but can be easy to lose high up.. above 30,000 controllability gets more challenging and speed range control is vitally important..
The condor clubs server listing found here http://www.condor-club.eu/serverinfo/222/ will now have ongoing tasks called freedomswings.org daily
I already set up and flew a couple tasks with a couple other gliders, however, now i am transferring all my flight plans and landscapes to the laptop carl gave me, and setting that up as a dedicated condor tasks server.
if possible i would like to host 3 daily tasks 1 will challenge experts, 1 more intermediate, and 1 suitable for all
I hope to create new tasks to fly nearly daily
note: because the alpine arc and the California maps are large and offer a wide range of options these maybe the most used landscapes. but i am open to suggestions.
Additionally, I will be setting up some competitions for us once I have the dedicated server figured out.
