F5B electric-powered glider competition

Three tasks: distance, duration, and landing.
Launch and distance (flying the legs) is definitely exciting. The thermal duration portion which follows must be 10 minutes long in international competition; we shortened it to 2 minutes to keep things flowing. The landing at the end of the duration is worth up to 30 points, depending how close the plane lands at the center of a 30-meter circle. F5B competitions typically are won and lost in distance and landing.
