After a great weekend for flying wouldn't it be a shame if you couldn't upload your flights...
Sorry about that, everything should be back up and running now but if you are still having problems read this post!Read more
BOS Task 1 flights have been added to the database and the comp tracks generated.
Well done to Grant for getting to goal. Task maps are available by going to "Comps" and selecting "BOS 2012 / Task 1". Scores are calculated by a different system to the comps score so positions may vary. If your score seems quite off or we have associated you with the wrong club / glider please tell Phil and it will be changed - I used the last submitted flight as a reference for everyone as we comps team don't keep a record of club. Fingers crossed the weather is good for the next couple of days!Read more
Looks like a new UK record has been set, congratulations to Carl WalbankRead more
The awards for the year have been finalised, congratulations to all the winners and runners up also!Read more
As of the 1st of December 2011 there wil be a few changes to the rules, these are to enble a safer and fairer league.Read more
If you wish to make a custom league then download these two files pilot database and glider database and edit them with a new column, for the gliders put in the multiplier they will recieve (ie 0 if they are not allowed, 1 for normal score) and for each pilot a 1 or 0 if they are allowed in the league or not, or alternatly the multiplier they should recieve. If you send them to me along with any additional things you would like in the league (including a name for the league) I will see what I can sort out. Once I have one custom league up and running I will attempt to create an admin interface so you can skip me out entirly and organise them yourself. If anyone has knowlage of a hg database with info on each glider I could allow you to create a "formula" from this info to create the glider handicaps automatically as well.Read more
When looking at a track with our google maps system you can now follow the flight by moving the slider at the bottom of the page. A vertical line will also travel across the height map to show the relative progression through the flight. If the slider and the red line are not aligned that is because the igc has not got constant time steps, the height graph maps height against time from first point while the slider is for each point not time.Read more
The first round is over. After 4 days with winds too high to fly a lot of people had gone home but for the 35 people who stayed there was a great flying day to enjoy. The goal for the main league was set to ~85k with around 13 people making it, Grant Crossingham coming in first of the flexwings. For the club guys there was a ~35k goal which 4 guys made, Daniel Balla winning that and going on to fly a 87k flight! Congratulation to everyone who flew and may the next round bring you more luck with the weather.Read more
