Unable to start task

Post by ahorcajo » Thu Jun 11, 2020 9:04 pm

Forgive my newbie question but I am really having trouble with starting my task for the Diamonds Badge "Condor2 - Diamond badge on Arc Alpin2". In this task PDA is allowed and therefore I thought you only have to fly over the Start shaded area to have the task started. I am however unable to accomplish this and the start area remains red no matter how many times I enter and exit.

Any help would be appreciated.

Regards, Antonio. Madrid, Spain.

There is an altitude limit at the start, you have to cross the line below 1800m

Besides that, you cannot start before the gate has opened (10 minutes after you started Condor)

Thanks a lot Bre901. May I ask where is that restriction specified? I did not see it in the description of the task. Kind regards,

You can see it in the flight planner when the task is displayed, or in PDA screen #1 : [0-18] in red or green depending on whether the gate has opened and you are above or below the maximum altitude.

It is also displayed in the properties pop-up window (right click on a start- or turnpoint)
