F5B Introduction
F5B - Electric Powered Motor Glider

GliderScore integrates all aspects necessary to setup and run an F5B competition.
In addition, you can change the landing points table, the points per lap and the
target time to suit the level of competition to be run. Other factors can be varied
and the draw order keeps things running smoothly without delays due to frequency
and/or team clashes.

GliderScore complies with all aspects of the 2016 FAI F5B rules.

Main features

  • Unlimited number of pilots. Up to 99 rounds can be drawn.

  • The draw separates pilots in the order based on same frequency and/or same team.
  • Pilots can be 'retired' and a re-draw made with the remaining pilots for later rounds.
  • A group can be split into two, and split again if necessary.
  • Whole groups can be re-flown.
