Fly your Bug in this event I've made many of the times that are needed to complete the total times. Introducing the Blind Thermal Contest The only Thermal Duration Contest that you can compete in from anywhere in the world! What is a Blind Thermal Contest? The contest is a RC thermal duration contest that anyone can compete in - regardless of where they live. The contest will be held between August 31st and September 3rd and scores are submitted on-line. To make it interesting, the format differs slightly from what you may be used to. What is the format? There are 3 classes: expert, sportsman and novice. Any class of plane may be used as long as it thermals and does not have a motor. Unlike traditional thermal contests, this Blind Thermal contest is done in reverse. Before you begin you will get a point total to shoot for. You will then have 5 flights and 5 landing scores that should add up to your point target. (Or as close as possible.) You then submit your 5 flight times and 5 landing scores on-line. In order to determine a winner, your scores for each flight will be compared against a `blind pilot.' The pilot whose flight times and landings are the closest to the `blind' pilot will be deemed the winner. In the remote chance of a tie, a computer will randomly select the winner.
