hi Michel and the other involved organizers,
thx a lot for realizing this interesting, international CONDOR competition. Merci beaucoup !
Overall, the format and rules are new, interesting and callenging, also fair.
Nevertheless , my small remarks:
- if you are one of the happy 2 first finishers in race, there is no need to participate the other races, up to the final. Personaly, I prefer to see the pilots at every race,its the way to strenghten the community and create this special competition atmosphere.
- to relalize that, why we dont use the GP rules from the RL FAI Grand Prix format. Shortly: max. 20 pilots each race, first 10 pts, sec 8 pts, .....down to 9. with 1 pts.
- for this format, regatta start is the fairest and exciting way to do it. For thoses , who dont likes it, a nummer of races will take place in the tradional format. (e.g: 7 races ragatta, 7 races regular).
-to minimize the effective existing collision danger, I recommend to limit the server places to 20. Cause there are around 100-120 interested international pilots , 5 - 6 servers launched will be enough.Grand final for the best 32 pilots
-if we fly at summertime, start the flights around 20:00 h.doing so,RL pilots will have the possibility to fly with us.(e.g. AXM,W22,they are registered, but dont fly.)
- its difficult, I know, but more realistic tasks would be fine.This will lead to more differenciated results. Hopefully, CONDOR 2 will give us the chance, to play with the weather conditions in a more realistic manner. (I know, its a long time discussion. Even me, I dont have a really good solution, compromize for that issue.So, no critics to the flight-planners.)
-finally,the int. community is small, on the other hand, the nummer of competitions is,relativily, high. Lets concentrate the resources,and coordinate the competitions before publishing them finaly.However, a new topic in the int. forum--> planned competions , could be the right place to do so.
Just some initial points for discussion,
see you all in the air
