- Start gate type: Exit and Entry
- Start gate time: Open and Close
- Time To Start
Most of Davis Straub's flying is in competitions and he responded to Paolo's request for general delta task information with this:
1) Task specification: Start cylinder (exit and entry), size (kilometers), turn point cylinder radius (400 meters, most likely),
goal: cylinder or line (length and perpendicular to the course line).
2) Multiple start times, take the last one. Number of start times and interval length, and first start time.

Or, simply, there is no window close time. After the last gate start, there is no close gate...
It depends on the rules, does it?

The feedback that I have from all the pilots that used LK8000 today is that is really GOOD!
But we need to make a shortcut in Nav menu for the Task Times! Is really important that! They told me that going to Config Setup is a "long way" :)
We really need to find a solution about the close gates. Maybe we could use the "Window close time" for that situation. After window close time no one can take off.

I still have a doubt about the closing time of the last gate.
Currently it simply closes the gates, no start possible.
I could disable the gates, after the last close, and let the task run with no gates.
But then, start OUT would not work.
So it looks like we need a configurable "close gate" mode, no good...
Last gate close: none, always open. Something like that.

Same story here, Sergio...
At least i could set up a pna with LK for a friend, after I har formatted the SD card, which was totally messed up (did not load maps etc..). Be careful with those SD cards!
I have done quite a bit of testing of the new start gates handling in the car on my way to this comp, and everything seems to work as it should. Thanks Paolo!

Since I got here, I already setup LK8000 in about 3 or 4 pilots PDA systems! ;) They are really impressed with it.
Btw, I just finish to setup LK8000 in another pilot PDA :)

The LK StartGate and CancelGate is working perfectly. It was programmed to cancel the first day.

First day of competition, first task: Canceled! :(
Maybe only on the weekend we will have good weather to fly.

I am pleased to announce that Sergio will be testing the first version of time gates in competition from tomorrow in Portugal.
The new Start Gate engine looks working.
We expect some tuning, but overall it is ok.
It also supports start in and start out of cylinder.
Currently there is no route optimization.

Thanks for explanation. I am a glider pilot and I do not know much about paragliding competition rules as you can see ;-)
||Posted - 04/05/2010 : 09:13:14
Thats okay, paragliders only need the route optimization (-100%) and dont care about the AAT speed. Its the only way to set and optimize the paragliding tasks for now.
||Posted - 04/05/2010 : 08:35:58
It is probably caused by MC not being set properly so LK provides you the route for really slow speed. Setup MC to the real life value and try again. If you will see -100% once again it means that your AAT Time is to short for that distance and there is something wrong with the task.
||Posted - 04/05/2010 : 08:24:14
Thank you all! I put 0 minutes to test and when I Click optimize it gives me -100% ;)
I'm really feeling like a newbie :)
||Posted - 04/05/2010 : 08:17:49
Yes, and the minimum time will affect the behaviour of the optimization feature. If you set a short minimum time (5 minutes if you like) and click Calc>Optimize, LK will estimate the shortest possible route (alternatively you can select -100% inside Calc).
If you set a longer minimum time and click Optimize, LK will calculate the route that gives the longest distance for that minimum time, by guiding you further into the cylinders. Thats what AAT (assigned area task) is about, flying as far as posible within the minimum time (highest average speed), where you can choose how far into each cylinder you want to go, and also how much time you want to spend. The penalties only apply to the scoring of real AAT, so dont worry about that :-) (AAT average speed is calculated from the minimum time, not the elapsed time, if you finish too early)

TiGuy82 - "AAT Time" is the minimum time that you must spend between Starting the task and finishing the task, in order to avoid penalties.

I didn't read it before :( what is the AAT time? :P
