Competition question

Postby Chris » Mon, May 21 2007, 05:24 AM

I was lookind through the ISK rules book, and saw they have a technical routine listed under the precision category, I thought the comps only consisted of the compulsory figures and ballet. Can anyone clarify this for me?
It's a great satisfaction knowing that for a brief point in time you made a difference.

If you haven't already, ask over at the GWTW forums. Also consider emailing (not PM-ing) directly to Zach.
From what little comps I've watched, it seems that after doing the required precision routines they also flew a little bit just to show off precision flying in general. They would mostly seem to do some precision figures from years past.

Hi Chris,

Precision consists of two separate sections. First the compulsories and then a technical routine. Three compulsory figures are flown first, these have been previously announced and posted. Then the technical portion takes place. This is a "full, flowing routine that demonstrates evidence of a plan and the technical skill of the competitor." It is judged by execution and content components. The minimum time for an individual is 1 minute, maximum is 3.

For a more in-depth explanation, take a look at the "Precision" section of the International Sport Kite Rules Book or email Zach or myself.
