However, after entering the waypoints it requires to erase the start cylinder later to check if the distances are correct.


Is it the takeoff cylinder to are deleting, or the start cylinder?

LK8000 doesnt need the takeoff cylinder to calculate the task correctly, as long as the take off cylinder is not the actual start cylinder enter/exit.

All competitions I have flown I simply enter the task on the task board without takeoff cylinder (excluding the "TO" shown in the picture).

Then I go to task analysis and check that the task km is correct according to the taskboard. Which has been correct all the time.



Flymaster for example, needs the takeoff cylinder to start and calculate the task correctly.

It is actually the take off cylinder to be deleted, I wrote that wrong in my other posting and have already corrected it, thank you Robert!

All the comps I have attended so far do include the takeoff in the actual task distance, therefore deleting or not even entering the takeoff would result in a different task distance to what is written on the on the taskboard.

@Slople: how do you manage SSS and ESS in XCS ?


I don't. I bought an Android for XCTrack only for this.
