Task map, people.
Journey of a Million Miles - leg 12 California 250k.jpg

There will be a start height limit ........ just haven't decided what it'll be yet :)

See you 1900h.

Results:

Andy1248 ASG-29 01:42:21 146.30 km/h
BeastFromtheEast Discus 2c 01:47:46 139.00 km/h
Robbob Ventus 2CX 02:00:49 122.20 km/h (landed with <4k to go :( )

A nice task, guys ..... remember the Long Good Friday, if anyone is interested.

In other news, another project (hopefully in the air fairly shortly as the battery and folding prop are on order)

The team password is the usual beastly one.

I have removed the password from the UK team for Glider in Patrol. Hopefully this may encourage some more UK based flyers. Additionally I am not going to able to fly on two of the dates, so unless we get more than 3 then it will be a non starter.

Don't worry too much : 5 races out of 7 are taken into ranking calculation, but you must be at least 3 pilots registered.
Welcome on our fun race :)

Thanks! :) I have had a few powered models over the years, but the Mystique is my first glider (albeit powered ...... not many slopes in Essex)

I have started putting the tasks on club.eu just before starting the server, so anyone who appears after joining has closed can fly offline.

Andy1248 ASG-29 01:37:04 153.90 km/h (completed offline 12/4/17)
TerryF Ventus 2CX 01:37:43 152.90 km/h
RobBob Ventus 2CX 01:48:47 137.30 km/h
BeastFromTheEast LS 8-s 02:05:21 119.17km/h

Surprisingly difficult and not a good performance from myself. I had to backtrack on a couple of occasions to find lift and had to Q away from a crash at the first turning point.

Terry Ventus 2CX 01:33:11 144.3km/h
RobBob Ventus 2CX 01:39:43 134.8km/h
AndyS ASG-29 01:40:48 133.4km/h
BeastFromtheEast LS 8-s 02:00:21 111.7km/h

I really muffed the start with three thermals dying on cue and wound up terrifyingly low and slow and trying to get a few hundred feet off the ridge, eventually getting away from tree top height. Curiously I had little trouble with lift during the rest of the flight, but by that stage you guys were specks on the horizon.

GiP kicks off on 4th May ...... this gives us 2 more legs. Need to have a look but I am not even sure this will get us back to Tracy (never mind Edwards AFB). EDIT: we are 698k from Edwards and 390km from Tracy.

Task map, people:

Journey of a Million Miles - leg 15 California 263k.jpg


There will be a start height ..... 4000m

See you 1900h .... for the final leg of an epic journey.

RobBob Ventus2CX 01:23:36 188.7km/h
BeastFromtheEast LS8-s 01:34:10 167.50 km/h
AndyS Ventus2CX 01:37:02 162.6km/h

Our journey is concluded ........ I have not added the total distance yet but believe it to be around 3,700km across this fantastic scenery (thanks to DGT for creating it).

As discussed I will be taking a break from Beastliness next week. With GiP getting under way I will let people know when it will return. I suspect it will be in the autumn as I am looking at some very busy times at work ....... but I could look at a few one-offs in the meantime.
