Ok, I finally had a chance to sit down and get (R1) routine 1 done. I hope you all like it. I kept it a bit easy as it's the first time you will be required to do a whole sequence. Let me know what you all think.
I've also been finishing up the TD advanced program. I have sent it to Joe to get his input and then I will do the final revisions and have it done as well.
In the mean time I have been finishing up the requirements pages and making any changes that are needed. This includes any changes to the website as well to get it all updated. I'm hoping to be done very shortly.
If anyone knows someone who has the program for printing aresti charts, let me know. I would love to have someone make these a bit nicer and have them as a PDF to send out as well. Thanks.

That looks pretty doable for the first routine. Will fly it on the sim sometime to see how hard it really is.

Looks good here. Having it on a sheet like that will be handy. Print it off,slap on a clipboard and give to your caller/timer. That way they can see what the manover is to look like.

pretty simple routine, but I like that you are doing a aerobatic sheet for gliders, unlike imac doing this withthe gliders is a bit more involved with energy managament and knowing how high you need to enter thebox and not run out of altitude. I was lucky enough to watch some full scale fox's doing routines near Garmish Germany back in 2000. very gracful.. unfortuneatly the luftsport I was flying with wouldnt let me try with our old gliders , I may try this routine with my ventus this spring,, it it doesnt snap the wing.

It's also a lot easier than trying to explain it in words.

Thanks guys for the possitive responses. Do you all think it's hard enough since it's the first routine requirement? I think it should be done twice as well. After all, it's going across from a 2K G&R.
With this and a couple more requirement fixes we will have the main program complete. (If there was a smiley doing a happy dance it would go here )

No, I don't think it is hard enough in comparison to the G&R, even done twice. By this time, haven't they had to do knife edges? If so, add them into the mix a couple of places.

A 4 point roll could go after the 45 degree, in #2 and/or #8. How about #2 gets 4 point roll to the right, #8 has 4 point roll to the left,or a left and a right?

That's what I like to see. Guys who aren't afraid to make things harder and more challenging. I'll add to it and make a few changes. BTW, I personally agree with making them go the oposite direction. However, I've always been told it's always pilot's choice when it comes to direction for spins, rolls, etc. as long as you end up in the right attitude. (upright or inverted) Maybe I heard wrong.
Do you like this better? Has knife edge, 4 point rolls, and spins.

You like that do ya? Cool! Now I just have to do this until everyone else chimes in. Do it twice or three times? I think twice would be good. After all you do have to try to memorize it and perfect it enough that it's recognizable enough to pass.
UNRELATED SUBJECT: Now it's off to the shop to build my new 3D electric. I picked up a PA Extra MX to have some fun with. Runs on 6S at 1300 watts. Should be entertaining!

But will it thermal!!!

Haveing a small clipboard on the transmiter will aid in doing the manuver's,should be legal as they are used by the IMAC and TOC flyer's.
