In Flight Tasking - IFT - Wellington specific

In-Flight Tasking - Wellington specific Martyn Cook Here is an alternative to the classic Racing and Assigned Area task formats. The principle of InFlight Tasking (IFT) is that the pilot can develop a task while in flight, depending on how conditions develop on the day. But it is not the same as the...

Re: Height control

Hi Martyn,
I haven't had a chance to look at this, and what happened to Mark's flight. I hope to get to it over the next few days. I'll bear in mind what you have said.
Cheers
Brian

Re: Archiving flights, tasks and waypoints

That's kind of what I was suggesting. The waypoints are all in the same place, but some have the 'archive' tag set, so they don't appear in the main list, but are still available for flight display for old tasks and flights.

Archiving flights, tasks and waypoints

When a club starts a new year then some changes are likely for tasks and waypoints. However once a task has been flown, then the task waypoints cannot be changed, and the waypoints positions cannot be changed. Doing so would invalidate the score of flights which have used those tasks and waypoints. ...

Persist lines per page by user

Two changes are planned for the flights and tasks displays. 1 Compress tables when extra lines are displayed. The default display is designed to work on any device, but with a PC screen the lists aren't long enough. Currently the lines per page can be increased to 15 or 30. There two levels of compr...
