Penalties
Cloud flying: the penalty given by Condor applies (60 points per minute). Mid-air collisions: pilots can repair their gliders in the air without any penalty.

Non-finishers & Disconnected pilots
Non-finishers will get points for the achieved distance if the pilot landed safely. In case of crash he will get zero points. When pilot is disconnected during race because of his internet connection, he MUST sent/upload an IGC file via our website or e-mail at batohvirtualsoaring.eu to be scored. IGC file must be sent max. 6 hours after race starts.

Scoring & Champions
Each Batoh! race will be scored/calcutated to 1000 points. The pilot who achieves the highest cumulative score in 2/3 of all the races will be the quarter champion. When total number of races in quarter is an odd number, the 2/3 of the races will be rounded up.

FAQ: How to start a noPDA task
Tutorial in short: Race's clock must be started (you've heard the 3 bips) -> You have to be in the start sector (study the flight plan before entering the game!) -> Press J to see the start TP -> Look at 90° on your left, turn your glider to have both the TP basement and your left wing on the screen -> Press S key.

If all points above are correct, you'll see the confirmation message "xxx has started task". If you have only "Screenshot xxx saved", you have to retry. Bellow is a video made by Bades (BA) to illustrate a flight without PDA.
