Contest is finished, last racing day of Fatra Gliding Cup 2011 is over. And here are the winners:
• 1st place for DMITRIY BALYKIN (BAD/ASW27/Ukraine) with 3776 points
• 2nd place for MARTIN KOŽÁR (MK1/Ventus2/Slovak republic) with 3721 points
• 3rd place for SÖNKE NEUMANN (SN/ASW27/Germany) with 3409 points
TOP3 pilots will receive a gift from condorworld.eu - HD textures for ONE scenery by own choice - we will contact them by e-mail soon.
Thanks goes to all pilots for joining us here in the sky over Martin and special thanks to Radek (RUM) for tasksetting and Peter (7P) for hosting condor servers. Big thanks goes also to Miloš "Cadfael" Koch (MK) for preparing for us such a great sceneries as Czechoslovakia.
Well, well, well… And here we are again, back with another virtual soaring contest. This time we will fly from/to Martin airport - a refly of real life competiton Fatraglide 2011 (tasks little bit modified to fit in Czechoslovakia 2.0 scenery etc.)
Back to contest: it's small competition with one practise day and five racing days, 15m class gliders, racing and speed tasks (AAT/S) over new Czechoslovakia 2.0 landscape. More informations about this competition - as usual - in rules.
This competition is continued line of successful competitions like Medlánky Condorworld Cup, Liptov Shepherd GP, Praděd GP Gliding, Raven Competition, Kiwi Race and OCC. Please - give your attention to the rules! You will need to register, server password will be published in briefing. After each race you must send IGC file.

Condor › The Competition Soaring Simulator
Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator is designed to recreate the ultimate experience of competition soaring on your PC. A lot of attention was put in to create an environment which would create an immersion of real competition flying. This means that the aerodynamics and weather physics were in focus of the development. The result is amazingly real feel of flight in all flight regimes and weather conditions which challenges a real soaring pilot on a competition day.
Amazing feel of flight due to the advanced flight dynamics model: Advanced 6DOF flight model for complete freedom of flying / Accurate sailplane performance and handling – also at and beyond critical angles of attack / Sailplane damage simulation – flutter, high G stress, collisions / High time fidelity physics engine (up to 500 cycles per second) / Accurate ground forces for realistic takeoffs, landings and crashes / Detailed, sub-object collision detection for mid air and ground object collisions / Accurate conditions for a realistic towing and winch start.
