  1. don't feel bad, i landed out the first 2 times that i tried it if you get the full version of cumx you will get a wing tilt when hitting lift which helps to see which side the lift is on after i got the full version i managed to finish the race try, try again
  2. The Hilltown - Blairstown Goal and Return Race DiscusX required CumulusX recomended SimLogger sugested A 40nm leg g&r thermal race on a late spring day. The wind is light from the west. The start is yaht style, 10 mins from now. All 5 contestants are currently in the air. You have yourself closest to the start line, it's farther away then it looks .... Hold that left turn you are in, i'll bet that thermal is gonna pop in about a minute ....... off to the races ......... Download from http://www.box.net/shared/kln0jdrzvu

  4. i think i got it this time ........
  5. here are my 2 best attempts, a 58:28 and a 59.29 or mabe not .....
  6. current winch record 58:28.6 by ....... me peter - i started with a 9k limit, and made it around the course in 1:02 hodge wanted me to leave it there, but i changed it to 10k the margin on the gaps - it's all desciding the speed to fly do i fly fast and burn altitude, and have extra energy to punch thru the sink or do i fly slow and get there higher, but be slower going thru the sink it's all about seat of the pants flying, and eyeing the angle i never ment this to be an easy course, if you complete the race you shoould be very happy with your flight
