Road to Height Limited Soaring Competitions -- Dynamic, Strategies, DOs, and DONTs --
After many years of flying Slope Gliders, due to circumstances, I got engaged with electric power, specially I got interested on the Height limited soaring, which I practice now. But being a lonley flyer gets boring and I am looking forward to start participating on events.
I had read the "rules" for the now growing "FXJ" category in Europe but still I find a bit difficult to grasp the dynamics of such competitions and the strategies one could use there. That is why I start this thread, to gather knowledge from those who have the experience on Height Limited Competitios, and hopefully to develop a list of DOs and DONTs for those like me that are starting and eager to learn more.
I hope someone could post a "step by step" develpment of such competitions.
Thanks for all your comments and Input
