Rule 15.13 Minimum distance (MDT)


Competitors will attempt to achieve a mark or valid track point close to the reference point, after flying a minimum set time or distance.


Task data:
a. arrangements of timing
b. minimum set time or distance
c. reference point


The result is the distance from the mark or closest valid track point to the reference point. Smallest result is best.
The scoring position is the mark or best track point after the minimum time or distance has elapsed.

If Observers are used, the scoring position is the mark if the observer has seen the marker drop after the minimum set time.
Otherwise the scoring position will be the landing position, provided that the balloon has been seen by an official to be still airborne after the minimum time.
