The May task D is finished, thanks all to fly with us and congratulation to Brad winning all three categories.

Task E for June is open now. The weather: a higher cloud base, strong but narrow thermals and more covered.

The task type is triangle.

Fly as long as you can in the time limit and return to the start airport. If you return to the start airport, your result is the direct distance of the biggest FAI triangle you have flown (minimum length of one leg is 28 % of the triangle). The relase point and the landing point is calculated as one and the same corner of the triangle. And you get the bonus for the return.

If you don't return, your result is 80 % of the flight length calculated with the positions after every 5th minute of your flight.

Good luck all flying the Vintage Series

Announcement to the next Multiplayer event of the Vintage Series.

We will fly together task E on Thursday 30. June start from18:30 UTC on the Vintage Series server, communication via Discord. The tasktype is "2 turn points" (before announced as "triangle", but renamed due to misunderstandings).

We are flying as usual with a time limit (depending on the category of the plane 90, 105 or 120 minutes, see all details on the homepage of the Vintage Series), the time starts with releasing and ends with landing.

You decide where you want to fly, the system looks for the direct flown distance around 2 turn points, where each leg is minimum 28 % of the whole distance. It's like an FAI triangle, but you don't have to close it. Release point and landing point is calculated as one and the same corner of the triangle. See the picture for a possible valid flight.

We will use the landscape CW-V, you get it for free on https://www.condorworld.eu/

Start point is Nove mesto, because it should be helpful for the navigation with the lake near the airport. From there we have enough space to the west and the south. Weather isn't too good, strong but narrow thermals with 5/8 high clouds. Nice to fly with really slow planes like the Baby, challenging with the faster ones.
