We have heard the rumor that now there are lots of issues with the
tracklogs and similar GPSes showing pilots missing the turnpoints by 100 to 200
meters. And there were a lot of "turnpoints" today, an amazing task call, unlike
any I have ever seen. Perhaps it overtaxed our "fragile" system. Hopefully we
will get more than rumors.It appears... mehr

With a 30 kilometer radius turnpoint cylinder, if you add the half
percent error band to the cylinder (150 meters) you gain twenty seconds by
turning earlier assuming that you are flying at 33.55 mph, or 15 meters/second.
With an error band of 0.05% you save two seconds.With a 400 meter radius turnpoint cylinder, if you add the half percent... mehr

GPS/INS is commonly used on aircraft for navigation purposes.
Using GPS/INS allows for smoother position and velocity estimates that can be
provided at a sampling rate faster than the GPS receiver. This also allows for
accurate estimation of the aircraft attitude (roll, pitch, and yaw) angles.
A post from... mehr

I’m now aerotowing with a new Mustang3 K20 from North Wing. It was
fun spending some time with Kamron Blevins at Sun ‘n Fun and Quest Air
Nationals. He set me up with a quick build and delivery of this wing that we
flew at Refugio all week.
It does offer better controllability with... mehr

I didn't find any local regulations here. The CIVL Sporting Code states:

The Local Regulations shall be approved by CIVL and not subsequently changed,
except under the conditions stated below. In the approval process for the Local
Regulations, CIVL... mehr

Because Flymaster trackers are now used for Live Tracking and
scoring purposes in Category 1 competitions (at least) we propose the following
changes to the CIVL Sporting Code re the use of GPSes by the pilots. This allows
for the pilot to use their own flight instrument with equal standing to the
Flymaster trackers. Registration of their... mehr

The Flymaster tracker track for Roland Wöhrle task 6, 2nd
waypoint, shows him short of the cylinder:

But apparently as he was scored making the turnpoint. Perhaps his flight instrument
showed him getting the turnpoint. Perhaps this track log was within the error band. mehr

Story found here:
We were shortly after the start, under a line of cumulus, in
convergence, at 2500 meters towards the first turn point, when the
constant "beep beep" of the vario (0.5 ÷ 1 M / s) gently became more frequent,
so I decided to turn and climb the last 100... mehr
