Yes, we used the task window 10min.
Overflying the window = zero landing points. Brady had one of them late flights.
Late landing + 230m launch is about 200+ points loss versus a 190m launch + 45 point landing! Penalty adds up quickly.

We have but there was little to no interest.

I would like you to line up an F5J event as well Jon. I'll be there to fly. Too bad there was so little interest last time around. Maybe a year later things will be different?
