Landing and Thermal Duration Points


Landing Grid divided into 3 areas each adding bonus Points, 25 % , 15 and 10 % for landing in the largest area.

Points awarded based on time flown during thermal portion,

1 point per second flown, 3 , 4, 5, 8, 10 minute tasks

a Complete 3 minute Task with a landing in the smallest zone gets awarded 225 Pts.

Points are prorated to 1000 with 1000 awarded to the winner, and others in behind.

Flying over the time results in a 1 pt deduction for each second over, as well landing beyond an additional rectangle in the landing zone, results in 10 % taken off the Flight Time Score.

The key is to fly, make the time, don’t fly over and land in the zone..

3 Minutes is easy right :)
