2017 Dahlsten Cup Results Discussion

Post by chadness » Thu Sep 21, 2017 8:01 am

Hey folks (Chippy, JD, et. Al.):

have the total tracks been uploaded somewhere? What about some more post comp analysis, like an animated track video? Also what about any on-board flight video? I have some, nothing great, but will share when ready.

Gotta take the opportunity to thank the significant contributors to the event. To the folks helping out before/during/after the event, and all the planning that goes into a great event like this. We all know who you are. You make this thing happen. Thanks.

I'll email you all the tracks if you like.
I'll give you my personal report:
I was flying like a hero until I ate shit.

This version didn't work. See my next post for the revised edit.

Dahlsten 2017 track logs

Cool; thanks! It's a challenge to distinguish each of those colors, but I'll study it; I bet there's lots to learn here.

I re-edited the tracklog video this time showing only the top 10 finishers at 20X and I combined 2D with 3D plus I notate the pilots' times as they complete the task and mention which took the 2nd start. Hopefully this helps.

I pulled together some of the footage of the staging gaggles during the Dahlsten. The wide angle GoPro makes everything appear far away, but we had some nice gaggles going.
