F5J Flight Log

I've attached a flight log from an F5J comp which illustrates the challenge and strategy to some extent.

These contests consist of at least 6 10 minute rounds with one throw-out and a flyoff of the top flyers flying 15 minute rounds.

These plots would appear to illustrate successive flights where the pilot went for lower and lower altitudes before flying an apparent throw-out. The longer you fly clean, the more risk you can take to score extra points with a low launch.

Take a look at the launch altitudes this guy used. And take a look at each flight in order.

Neat stuff.

Happy Landings,
