I think I understand. What you are saying is that when the flight track is recorded (so you can run it as a ghost later), Condor uses the default skin for that sailplane.
So what I could do if I want to be able to have my friend have an easy to see plane (say orange) to follow around, when I do a flight with that plane, I change the default (after saving the original) to the skin I want, fly the task with that plane and when that flight track is saved, the new skin will show up. Is that right?
Seems like a pretty straight forward workaround to my original goal of having a plane my friend can recognize in the sea of gliders I'm planning to spring on him when he flies a task I'm making for him.
Seems the guy who did "The Condor Challenge" video on YouTube did the same thing.
Seems his plane skins aren't the default ones. And all the gliders he's flying with are ghosts he made by flying the task again and again.
Thanks for the idea. Any other tips or tricks you can suggest would be appreciated.
