Here's what I have so far. Look about right? I 'll draw up the A4 aerobatics and R2 routine this week. The R1 will be a tough one as it's the final level for the main program. Let me know what you guys come up with for DS laps. I will also get the requirements pages finished to include these new tasks as well. I'm starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Honestly, it will be nice to see this finished. Then we can start spending time recruiting new people instead of trying to build the program.

On the slope side, the F3F task must be on a 100 meter course for those times to be acheiveable. That is also consistent with the F3F rules.

For the DS task, I have pretty much confirmed that 10 laps in a minute is doable, 12 would be pushing some people pretty well. Based on that I suggest 2 tries with 8 laps, 2 tries with 10 laps, and 1 with 12.

Thanks for the motivation #1. Getting a fair amount of slopeing in,as it dosn't need the Hi-start or winch. The snow does have one benifit to it. It make's it a lot easy'r to run my 12 snowmobile's .
On my 2002 Summit at the Notch. About 8 feet behind me it drops near 90 degrees for 3000ft,a wonderfull slope site .

Ken, what a great looking place to fly im jealous, wish our slopes here in Missouri looked like that. We do have a few small slopes and they are great to toss the DLG'S off of and the wind has to be in the right direction for the one we fly off of. I don't know if it's possible to fly from but we have some very large lakes here with some big damns. I thought at one time someone said since the 911 ordeal that flying from the damns or dykes wasn't permitted anymore but if i'm wrong someone tell me and i'm going to hit those sites.

That sounds like fun,as long as you don't land short( have boat handy !). I would give it a try anyway, all they can do is ask you to leave. That 911isim, is amazing. The commy's are gone so now we have the Talaban, LONG LIVE MACARTHYisim.

Sorry, it's been a busy week. Here's A4. Remember, if you're not sure what a maneuver looks like, it would be a good idea to follow the link on our site to the aresti page. It will make things easier to understand. Yes, this is going to take some effort. It should. It's the final level of the main program. Let the flogging of the president begin.

FLOGGING?? Hell I like it a lot. I take it that the > simble means "into"? Ie half roll >(into) inverted flight.

I'm going to need to dust off the old Cris Foss Phase 4 .

Works for me. Just having a problem figuring out what a "figure 9" is. Do you mean a spin that is mentioned in the linked pdf figure 9? Never heard of a goldfish before but that is explained well in the pdf.

A figure "9" is an inside loop,where on the vertical point, you let off of the backstick for a second or so,for a vertical climb. Then pull the remainder of the loop, crossing your vertical line about half way between the start and finish of your straight vertical line.

Tho most of mine look more like a backwards "e" .

This work for you?

Figure 9: If you look at the aresti made simple PDF the explanation comes right after tailslides. It's a hard pull to an upline with a loop that ends up coming back through the upline about half way down. (I think I explained that right) Ends up looking like a "9" .
Yup, ">" means "into". I'm glad you guys like it. I really didn't want to start over again.
