Downloading flights to xc league problems

Post by steve-gill » Tue Jun 06, 2017 6:01 pm

I'm having problems downloading flights to the xc league on here.
I have tried directly from my digifly instrument though the digifly software.
Also have tried through gps dump and seeyou and also converting file types.
Flight info looks ok on gps dump (date time position speed height etc) and also if saved in kml format and viewed on google earth, looks ok.
But on our xc league no map or graph info or date info is shown.

Can you send me a copy of the .igc please to chairman@nhpc.org.uk
If Acro was easy they'd call it Cross Country

For whatever reason your IGC wasn't producing a date in a format that our XC league reads i used GPS dump to create an igc from your kml file and uploaded it to xc league for you and looks fine.

I enjoyed the flight, but I was also disappointed at the same time. I made a couple of bad errors.
After doing the hard part of the flight (working any lift for over 10 mls on falling ground) and finally getting high with really good looking clouds and expecting an easy ride to the coast I left the last climb at 4500' thinking I was just under airspace I found after landing that the airspace was actually at 6000'.
Then I thought I could reach some cracking sky past a large blue area and headed for it instead of going for some nearer clouds, and just got sink all the way to the deck.
