There was a stage a while back where when someone had a good top place they would join server before the last race before tasks changed on SB to block scores being beaten. this seems to have stopped of late.

Didn't know that went on, but there are a few people out there who practice tasks by flying them without crossing the start so they can find the best way around before making a valid attempt. Maybe they need to get a good shrink to sort out their problems, its far more satisfying to beat people on equal terms.

As for falling asleep I have only ever done it once & that was on an SBC task where I flew when I was very tired went on auto pilot for a bit & dozed off waking up about 5km past the TP2 :)

I also saw a guy practising without starting the task....
Well I think thats there style, but I personally agree with Jon.

Where you still flying when you woke up??
I haven't fell asleep while flight, but I cooked during autopilot flight,
and, I ended up with a smoking frying pan, with non-eatable object inside,
and a crash in condor :oops:

Done the burnt food one :) Also been asked what the funny noise is when talking on the phone while thermalling although if I'm flying in a competition the phone is usually ignored :)

ForceFeedback is good :!:

While doing my 750km, I was having unintented naps time to time and woke up 3-4 times by shaking stick. Luckily I had and still have airbrakes in my MS FF2 thrust switch.

In food area I only have some very well grilled sausages :lol:
