Nice leg Roman .One important note . The leg is timed from "I have Baton " to "Baton free" post as timed on the forums . It is not the duenna timings :) . In the race it is important to remember this :)

Really??? IIRC the rules state you have up to an hour to validate ( max 3 hours total Race/Validate ) . Newbie at this, so I am probably wrong.. One of my questions is where do we post once the actual race starts,,, Here? A central race server?? etc. Or-- Baton time = posting here, validating = posting on a central server? :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm :-hmmm Hope to get a password soon for the Team Forums/FSHost/TS etc..EDIT-- Reread the rules a bit.... WOW a 87 minute penalty!!!!! OUCH.OK I think I got it now...:-bangRegards,Roman

Lack of sleep made poor decisions. Never set the ref speed +5 on final and came barreling in at over 200 kts. Tried to save it, alarms blaring but too late.

Another Dawn patrol flight.EDIT !!! - I pooched this flight already.... Duenna.. When you sync time do you have to be at your own airport? I just checked and my sim time is off by 2 hours.... BLAH!!! Goin to run it anyway.Kinda noticed when opening up the shades and it is light outside and dark in my flight :-( Romanhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/184415.jpg

Just didn't have enough coffee in me yet :-(In the real race this is not valid. But since it's practice and I did find out about it 20 mins after T/O I changed the time to the correct UTC. off by 3 (not 2 !!) hours... I donot know what the deal was... I used Duenna to sync time just before T/O and didn't touch ( nor check ) the time afterwards. It was brighter outside at home here than in MDPC-- just not right. So it was a night T/OAgain just practice -- If someone wants to overide it- go for it ;-) The flight itself sucked, 30 knots HW for the first half, 70 for the second.

Long uneventful flight with good winds. I didn't get a good view of the runway til about 3 miles out , but it was a nice smooth landing even with a 9kts of crosswind. Runways very short but had room to spare. i must admit it had my heart racing a bit, but i think it was more to do with all the crashes on this leg last yearhttp://forums.avsim.net/user_files/184449.jpg
