Proposed 2019 US rules
« on: January 27, 2019, 07:29:32 PM »
If I understood it right the 2019 US rules will change turn point radius from 1mile to 0.5 miles.  Does the CNII allow you to set the radius to 0.5miles?
What about any of the other rules changes, are they compatible?
thanks
Chris

Radii can be set as required. 

I haven't seen anything in the 2019 rules discussion that will require any development work.

update:  I was probably wrong about this.  I think CN2 gives only 2 or three discrete options for Racing and MAT tasks, and 0.5 SM isn't one of them.  Don't have a CN2 handy to check (buried in a trailer in a hangar...).  Kicked upstairs for action....

I'm not having any luck with this. I have the most current CNII firmware.
I can set the FINISH to 1mile or 0.5mile.
I can only set the TURNPOINT to 1 mile, 0.5km or 2km.   IT DOES NOT allow 0.5mile.
 
I have heard there may be a software fix coming.

thanks
Chris

I finally got email back from Rex.  He's aware of the problem (and presumably is getting it worked on).

While (in good humor) trading barbs with a certain contest committee member today regarding the merits of low tow vs high tow, said CC member let slip that the 2019 rules will NOT use 0.5 mile radii, but WILL use 1.0 SM radii as before.
