    Hello:

    If a pilot fails to take off and break the glider. What should be their status?
    ABS: I think not. He was on takeoff.
    DNF: I think not. He decided to take off and he took off a little (just a step).
    DF: I think so. And he should score with minimum distance.

    Those few points could be important.

    Chomin.

    Yes, I agree that DF would cover the situatuon of a failed takeoff and broken glider. The pilot intended to fly the task, but failed, so min distance is OK.

    isn’t there something about controlled flight somewhere?.
    a small step is not (in my mind) controlled flight 🙂
    i would be mean and give him DNF, as it would seem to me he didn’t.
