Havran/Raven Competition '09Welcome all virtual soaring friends - especially Condor pilots. After good responses after Christmas Minicup '08, we would like to introduce you a new small contest.

Contests is called Raven Competition '09 with secondary title "soaring newbies versus skilled pilots". Why raven - nobody knows... But secondary title is clear enough for everybody. Newbies will fly with gliders in 15m FAI class, skilled pilots same task together with newbies in Standard class. Only 6 tasks contest - no need to register, but condorserver will be password protected. Don't panic, password will be available at Briefing page. Length of tasks is about 200 km, PDA will be allowed. Server start is always saturdays at 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC). Crash is scored with 0 points.

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.

More informations about this simulator you can get at www.condorsoaring.com. Some screenshots and movies from this soaring simulator also here.
