Re: Unusually poor glide ratio

Thanks for the tip! I do have an nvidia card, so I will try to limit my frame rate and see if it helps.

Re: speed record start height

If you mean real life rules, then there is no max start height, but you must finish no more than 1000 m below the altitude where you start. You might find this article interesting, about the Schmeltzer's recent 100 km African speed record, and the preparation that went into it: https://docs.google.c...

Re: Unusually poor glide ratio

I was also thinking of CoG. With an aft CoG you have to trim forward when on FG. This will create more lift and drag on the horizontal stabilizer. I'm leaving MX out of the comparison, because he was flying an ASW22 with a different speed polar. These gliders were Nimbus 4 : 8K CoG 0 AXM CoG -3 EDB...

Re: Unusually poor glide ratio

I think it does simulate the effect of g load changes though. maybe if you were doing pullups in lift on fg, then this would give you the difference. I usually do some pullups if flying through thermals on glide, but if anything I was making fewer than normal pullups, simply because there weren't m...

Unusually poor glide ratio

I encountered something strange during last night's SBC race, I was getting significantly worse glide ratio than the other gliders I were flying with. Most notable on the incredibly long final glide. On the final leg I turned final turnpoint together with MX, and being at almost the same height (me ...

For those interested, here is a video from the real Norway. Mountain at 0:25 (and again at 0:40 and 1:38) is the last of the big mountains before TP2 in tonight's task :-) https://i.ytimg.com/vi/tDKBhhC2_tk/mqdefault.jpg This one is mostly from the first half of the second leg: https://i.ytimg.com/v...

I'm not sure about DH.


DH is how much height you currently have compared to the turnpoint. DDH is the height you will have when you reach it, assuming you fly at your current macready speed, and assuming still air.

Re: Is there a minimum scenery size in Condor?

Yes, I seem to remember that the smallest scenery I could get to work was 2x2 tiles. And that also was buggy, 3x3 was the smallest that worked properly.
