I was thinking that the downward 4 pointer would be iffy. Try it with a stall at the top of #3 and try a 4 rotation spin. Or may have to swap it out with #5.

Since we have a 4 point roll in 2, I think we should just drop it all together. I hate to put it in 5 because you'll need the speed to do the knife edge in 6. How did the rest fly?

rest of it is pretty straight forward. flew it with the Fox that comes with CRRCSIM. The hammerhead turn wasn't pretty but that was probably because of the sim. Everything else was doable but requires you to keep the energy up to do manuevers fast and clean enough to stay in the "box"

I would avoid spins for this one. Spins are very limiting as far as number of people who have a model that can do them. They also chew up a lot of vertical real estate, especially when flown poorly by a model that probably shouldn't been trying it in the first place.

UPDATE: The main program and TD Advanced are done. I'm currently in the process of updating all of the SSP files and the web site. I'll let everyone know when it's all done.

Did the form not work for you? I like to keep tabs on any issues with it. The way you did it will work just fine though. In fact, you have mail.

Nope, still not working. At least three different computers and operating systems. Last try yesterday after filling it out and code would not qualify, so I decided to print. Well, the wheel just went round and round and round. So, good ol' Snip tool, save file as and attach.

FWI: The Snip tool can grab anything on your screen.

Will make a special folder and put in my WingTote TX bag.

Very clear and well designed form, and lots of "Or". Nice.

UPDATE: I've posted everything to the web site. I still have to proof-read everything again to make sure I didn't screw anything up. Then I plan to re-check all of the requirements (rules) to look for errors or anything that needs clarifying. It's a long and quite boring process. We hope you all like how it turned out. And yes, the work load in advanced is going to take a while. It's the long term part of the program. I hope you all enjoy it!

I need to add dynamic soaring, laps on a course and consecutive flight tasks to the requirements page. I'm not sure how I over-looked those. Then I should have everything caught up.

Been meaning to read the website to see if everything is there but have been pre-occupied. Kid #4 came Friday night.

I think the Dynamic soaring and laps on a course should have a time set from launch to starting of the task? 3 minutes from launch to start of task? Shorter? Longer?

************************************************** ************************************************** *********

I've almost finished the requirements updates and proof reading. It should all be posted and finished soon.

that time to start task sounds fine if you really think you need one. In reality most people will probably start it much quicker than that, otherwise they wouldn't bother launching.

It's finally done. If anyone sees anything that doesn't look right, typo's, or something that needs clarifying please let me know. I have read this through so many times I simply pass over some stuff and don't even notice it at this point. The web site is updated as well. Now that the program is complete (except slope advanced) I'm hoping that we can get some more people interested. If you're enjoying the program please help to spread the word. Thank you everyone for your help and support!
