Following the release of Hangar Update 15, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download : http://condorutill.pagesperso-orange.fr/

The set is complete.
If you are using the handicap value in XCSoar or LK8000, you may want to update all the files because some gliders have got updated handicaps (new DAec index list).

Following the release of Hangar Update 16, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download : http://condorutill.pagesperso-orange.fr/

The set is complete.

If you already have installed the polars, you may only extract the Pegase ones as the other ones should be unchanged.

Following the release of Hangar Update 18, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download : http://condorutill.fr/

The set is complete.

If you already have installed the polars, you may only extract the new and modified ones (Ventus3) as the other ones should be unchanged.

I don't quite get polar for the EB29

In LK polar water balast is set as 580, but in XC soar polar it is only 174. By the way it is 174 in condor gliders settings tab but if you move the slider it only goes up to 136. What is going on here?

Also:
1) Shouldn't MassDryGross[kg] for duodiscus be 581 not 552?
2) Shouldn't water in ASG19 be 207?

I'll check that, it looks like there is an issue with the Winpilot polar

That has nothing to do with polars !
It is a Condor feature (same as RL actually): for some gliders the full capacity of the ballast may not be reached if that would lead to having a total mass above MTOW

Next time please create separate threads for unrelated topics

Also:

Two-seater I guess ? I'll check that
2) Shouldn't water in ASG19 be 207?
Don't know that glider: is it ASG29 or ASW19 ?

Sorry for the typo. I meant ASG29

There were actually two different bugs:

For the .plr files, instead of ballast content, I had written the ballast emptying time (typo), which for most gliders has the same value as the ballast content in litres.
The faulty ones were only ASG29 (both), DG808C (both), EB28R

For the DuoDiscus and the Arcus (both .xcp and .plr) I was computing fixed ballast in the same way as single-seaters or two-seaters without ballast (=MTOW-WB-DRY_MASS). It is now 80kg for two-seaters with WB.

The files have been corrected and uploaded to the webpage.

Sorry for the inconvenience

Following the release of Hangar Update 19, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download : https://condorutill.fr/

If you already have installed the polars, you may only extract the new one (PilatusB4) as the other ones should be unchanged.

Following the release of Hangar Update 22, I have updated the polar set, it is available for download : https://condorutill.fr/

The set is complete.

As there have been some polar adjustments, it's probably easier to extract the whole set than to upgrade individual files
