Task B: Last Flight, 5 minutes target

  • Last flight counts.
  • Max flight is limited to 5 minutes
  • All competitors of a group must launch their model gliders simultaneously, within 3 seconds of the acoustic signal. Launching a model glider before or more than 3 seconds after the start of the acoustic signal will result in a zero score for the flight
  • Three Launches maximum within a 7 minute window
  • There will be a start penalty in case a pilot needs more than 1 start
  • First start : zero points (no penalty)
  • Second start : start penalty is 10 points
  • Third start : start penalty is 20 points

Example Task A, NLH = 60 mtr
(For Launch bonus/penalty point explanation go to next link)

NLH - Nominal Launch Height table

Example

First Flight                  :

Start height 41 meter: 38 points launch bonus

Start Penalty: 0 points
Time: 1 minutes and 5 seconds = 65 points

General penalty: no penalty

Subtotal first flight: 65 + 0 + 38 = 103 points

Second flight              :

Start height 58 meter: 0 points launch penalty
Start Penalty: 10 points
Time: 3 minutes and 30 seconds = 210 points

General penalty: Landing out of Pilots Area = 10 points penalty

Subtotal second flight: 210 – 0 – 10 – 10 = 190 points

Third flight                  :

Start height 60 meter: 0 points launch penalty

Start Penalty: 20 points
Time: 2 minutes and 25 seconds = 145 points
General penalty: Landing out of Pilots Area = 10 points penalty

Subtotal third flight: 145 – 20 – 10 = 115 points

End result Task B

Last Flight counts: 115 points. If the maximum points scored in this groupis310points, after normalising the score for this pilot in this task is 115/310*100.0% = 37.1%.
