I have been flying a lot of Condor 2 Tasks recently, and often a Racing Task will have different Turnpoint radii, particularly in Mountain tasks.

It seems LK8000 only allows one radius for Turnpoints in a Racing Task (Task Type=Default) between the start and finish, which is a pain when Tasks have more than one radius.

I note that AAT and Grandprix tasks can have individual Turnpoint Radii generated for each Turnpoint.

Could this feature also be applied to Default type tasks to overcome the lack of flexibility in Turnpoint radii?

Many thanks,

why do not use "Grand Prix" if you need variable radius and turnpoint type ?

Ah ha. A very good point.

Upon reflection, I suppose the "Default" choice means you don't have to set a diameter for every turnpoint if they are all the same, so the three choices actually give more flexibility.

Many thanks

I use AAT to have different radius turnpoints, by setting it to advance to the next turnpoint automatically, it is actually just a race.
