I've flown a couple of AAT in Klix 2011 and won 3rd place on DD. My
friend flow FF and won 2nd place. We flew with XC 6.09.
I had no bugs or crashes at all, but in comparison to WinPilot (which
was used parallel on flight), XC is calculating a little bit to
that indeed leads to fly slower - not faster ..??
SoI can't give you a recommendation for the use of XC in AAT, this,
because I don know your settings (bugs, safety heights, and so on ..)
One thing I mentioned earlier before - and in my opinion this would be
nice to have -, is, to move the AAT-targets within the main screen, this
to avoid to much trouble during flight (: clicking nav - nav - targret
- siwth to the target you wanna manipulate - move target - see how time
in/decreases clicking back to main screen)
WP, Strepla, and I guess SeeYou(?) all are doing it on main screen ...
A much better solution, making the "target window" unneccesary because I
got a special set of Info Boxes called AAT (that could come up allone,.
when Type of task is set to AAT .. perhaps worth a ticket ?? ...) Too
much hazzle with clicking around ..
This XC - behaviour is not much "handy" I think, especially for single
pilots - we flow Duo and Dg1000 so there were no probs at all with
navigation during AAt..
To your special problem:
Restarting XC with a lost start time is indeed a bad thing that should
be fixed/solved somehow.
I didn't happen to me, so I didn't have the need to have this feature -
but- you're completely right - it should be done ..
