I have been flying a lot of Condor Races with LK8000 recently with a number being Grand Prix type starts.

It appears that the Next ETE data box in not filled until after the Task starts which makes it difficult to time a Grand Prix start accurately as there is no Time to Start Line.

I have been made aware that this facility is available in the Paraglider/Hang Glider mode.

Can Next ETE be made available prior to a Task Start in the Glider Mode. I guess it would be a bad idea to fly a glider in Hang Glider Mode?

I would be happy to help if you can point me in the right direction with some more information about how to go about it. Which method would you suggest for a Windows 10 laptop with a quite small hard drive?

For my purposes, just having the Next ETE populated with the time to the Task Start point would be ok. With a little bit of assistance I may be able to track down the "double screen tap" issue on the PC version as well.....

Cheers

I just compiled it if JBlyth want to test it :-)

Just notice a glitch, when I add first waypoint (Start) and go to select the type of Task, the types are duplicated.

I just uploaded the new version with a fix for the Type of Task Duplicated. The link is the same.

Thank you parapenT1sta,

I have downloaded the updated version.

I have done some early testing using Condor 2. What is the best way for me to report back?

In the mean time, I have done a small .docx report which can be found here:-
https://drive.google.com/open?id=13JL0wbHBC1F2qgpDPPa05puGWeX-2LKE

One of my other queries was why the "Next ETE" was not showing the time remaining to the Start of a Task (as in flying time - not count down). Is this by design or has it been overlooked.

I think you can report it here or if you want you can open a GitHub ticket.

Here is the best place to do it because it's a unofficial release.
