Thanks goes to all pilots for joining us here in the sky over Norway and special thanks to Radek (RUM) for tasksetting and Peter (7P) for hosting condor servers. Big thanks goes also to Arne-Martin (AXM) - author of great Norway scenery. CU next, friends!
Welcome to our website of another virtual soaring competition at virtualsoaring.eu. We have prepared another competition - second edition of Open Class Contest. Elvenes is our start/finish airport for this competition. We will race in OPEN CLASS with PDA, serverstart always at 20:00 CET (19:00 UTC). Overall results is simple count of all 6 tasks. Attention: choose carefully glider type in registration - with registered glider type you have to fly all task! More informations about competition in Rules section.

Condor › The Competition Soaring Simulator
Condor: The Competition Soaring Simulator is designed to recreate the ultimate experience of competition soaring on your PC. A lot of attention was put in to create an environment which would create an immersion of real competition flying. This means that the aerodynamics and weather physics were in focus of the development. The result is amazingly real feel of flight in all flight regimes and weather conditions which challenges a real soaring pilot on a competition day.
Amazing feel of flight due to the advanced flight dynamics model: Advanced 6DOF flight model for complete freedom of flying / Accurate sailplane performance and handling – also at and beyond critical angles of attack / Sailplane damage simulation – flutter, high G stress, collisions / High time fidelity physics engine (up to 500 cycles per second) / Accurate ground forces for realistic takeoffs, landings and crashes / Detailed, sub-object collision detection for mid air and ground object collisions / Accurate conditions for a realistic towing and winch start.
