Precision time (maximum 30 seconds climb, gliding time of exactly 90 seconds), followed by spot landing.
For the online competition using the MULTIFlight simulator the gliding time is 45 seconds.
Method of calculating the flight score:
Maximum points count: 50 [distance] plus 50 [time] = 100 points
50 - x [each 1 cm distance from landing spot = 1 point deduction]
50 - x [each 0.1 second of excess time = 1 point deduction]
The gliding time ends when the model comes to a halt.
The spot landing is measured from the fuselage tip (spinner) to the target spot.
A flight is invalid if:
Carrying out the EASYGLIDER Competition
The registered participants carry out one to three practice flights. After this each pilot flies three or five official rounds. If three rounds are flown, one flight is discarded. If five rounds are flown, two are discarded. In either case the worst flights are discarded. The number of rounds flown is determined by the number of participants.
The entrant with the highest number of points is the winner on the day, and will be invited to take part in the MULTIPLEX Final of the EASYGLIDER Competition. If the winner on the day is unable to take part in the Final, the next available entrant will be invited.
