Congrats and lots of respect to those who made it around. :)

What a nasty task. We've had more landouts and crashes then any other task flown to date (most before TP1). I'll like to see if the task setter had tested it fully. The conditions around the start were ideal, but they got worse as you progressed. I had at least 7 clouds with noting under them and ridges that seemed to have sink rather than lift . Evently I found a decent flat stretch near a lake to landout and resulted in a crash (a fault with Condor/Scenery?).

To be honest, I had not tried one of the 42 SBC08 tasks :roll:

I swear, the last two tasks will be easier and more fun :roll: :wink:

:( I'm very disapointed by the end of SBC : just risk and not fun . Very frustrating task for average pilot like me :?
After one LLC and two seasons of SBC , with a finish like this , i doubt to begin the next .

I actually enjoyed the task, but it was very hard. I had a plan to get round which worked, stay high and climb wherever there was lift.

Got low (1600m :lol: ) on the way from tp2 to 3 and took forever to get back up again.

Brilliant task! Hard and challenging. Like IRL it was needed to choose the right path and not just push the stick towards the next TP while being sure that you'll get 5+ m/s lift anyway. My outlanding in 28 km from finish is my personal fault - i was not well prepared before the flight, didn't investigate thoroughly FG path. Anyway i prefer tasks of such kind. Well done job of tasksetters!

Can we have a ASK-13, or a no PDA task ;)

I agree it was a real thinking task, I just ran into no 'working' thermals west of TP1 and no place to safely land-out, way too many trees and squirrels throwing nuts at me :) so I struggled to get to a safe land-ou area. I made the error of sprinting, when staying very high and slow was the tactic of the day but only finding this out when it was too late :(

I'm still disappointed that my land-out resulted in a crash when it was a good landing. The area was flatter then other areas near. I believe that there is a 'feature' in condor; if there is a sudden drop at low speed, or a sharp small feature in the terrain, these will cause a sudden high g and condor thinks that this is a crash. It difficult to reproduce, and only happens to me on online tasks, were you can't record to view on a replay.

When the task is available to download, I'll re-fly it with a better route and tactics ;)

The jury will be busy after day 42. Top finisher started on 2 servers? None of the US time zone servers ever started (very early and very late)?

Still a fun flight, all alone. My 4 server-mates started after me and landed early on first leg. I climbed to 3100 m before TP1 in ridge lift and once more on leg 2, then dodged clouds until mid leg 3. Got low before TP3 and bumbled into a great thermal back up to cloudbase. Personal best SBC finish. Ready for some RL comps now :D

You can look on his IGC and you can see, that he landed on the airfield. Great job MSE.
