Unusually for Beastliness, this is a ridge task with no thermals. I did not load water for the test flight: between TP 6 and 8 is quite tricky and I would suggest dumping any water after 6.

Open Class, see you 1930h (a touch later than usual at Kentclub's request)

Results

RobBob Nimbus 4 01:11:53 134.40 km/h
KentClub ASW 22BL 01:23:35 115.60 km/h
AndyS Nimbus 4 01:29:03 108.50 km/h
BeastFromtheEast & Spirals DNF (will probably refly, will add results when they become available).

Another good task in a typically red Condor sunrise, despite the misgivings during the first 15 minutes or so. It is still apparent the fancy virtual cockpit system is possibly a little too fancy for its own good, although I have a fair idea where the problem lies.

Released today on CC. But it is 'Sod's Law', I found a texture alignment error East of London.

Working on a fix which will appear as a texture patch.

I can understand now why the Condor V2 team want to make sure all is OK before release.

Hey Beasts, I have a question for you.

What lift would be expected at ridge height at Dunstable, in a 15kt NW wind?

Sounds like one for Olympia. I have not flown on the dunstable ridge but have on the RAF Halton ridge many times. 15kts on the face would be very soarable. Not sure what the figure would be, probably 2 to 3 kts close in, decreasing with height to zero sink at about 1300ft QFE.

Ready to be shot down on this.

Halton/bledlow ridge is a bit higher than dunstable ridge I think

The patch to fix the small texture error East of London is complete and has been uploaded to CC.

The patch will unfortunately change the scenery version number from 1 to 1.1. So for any online flying all must have the same version.

The patch should be available for download soon.

Any Beastly flyers fed up with the cold weather and want to fly a task?

I did notice a few mismatches in the scenery so will have a go with that patch shortly. Overall, though, the scenery is very good and extremely detailed.

Unfortunately I will not be able to do much else this week as my father's funeral is on Wednesday and I have been booked out making all the arrangements. However, next week is a possibility.
