ENC: Types of task start.

Mauro H. M. Tamburini

                Hi Pilots,

 

                I have a doubt about choosing the type of start cylinder when in a Racing task and respective times:         

 

1)      As far as I know, XCSoar defines automatically the start cylinder as “IN -> OUT”.  When I reach the start cylinder, I have to be inside the cylinder diameter and the task only will be active when I fly out of this diameter range.

                Since here in Brazil we have two types of starting the task: “IN -> OUT” and “OUT -> ENTER”.  This other type (OUT -> ENTER) defines that the start of the task is similar as a cylinder turnpoint: I have to cross (fly inside) the start cylinder diameter to start the task.

                Most of the paragliding tasks here in Brazil defines the start as “OUT – ENTER” type.  If I leave the XCSoar to choose “IN ->OUT” type, I will always loose some valuable time to make this maneuver to XCSoar understand the start of the task.

 

2)      How can I setup the correct time (hour) of the start and finish of the task?  Looking at XCSoar, I can only setup the “Start open time” and “Start finish time”, but not the final time of whole task.

 

                Does anyone know how to setup these on XCSoar?

 

                Best regards,
