# error in measuring distance

Reported by: Owned by: lopezrafa@… Stein Tore Erdal major 1.2.11 FsComp

### Description

Error in calculating distance. Pilot # 336 best 3720 Pilot # 443 best 1691 Using FSFLY measuring distance to the goal: Pilot 336 2956 m Pilot 443 3480 m

Using FSFLY measuring distance to the cylinder: Pilot 336 2348 m Pilot 443 2511 m

However, the FS is the distance as: Pilot 336 29014 mts Pilot 443 29179 mts 443 pilot gets further away, despite being further away from goal. Fs attached file and tracks

Apology is not distance GOAL. It is a measure of distance TP5

FsFlight pilot 336 and 443 near tp 5

Not an error.

The blue line is showing the shortest route from tp1 to tp6 via tp 2, 3, 4, 5.

It does not mark any "real" turnpoints that the pilots actually have to fly to. Just showing the "ideal" route to goal.

The point on tp5 circle where the blue line touches is not the point which pilot 443 must fly via to get shortest distance to goal from where he is.

If you look at the attached image (443 = red line, 336 = black line) you will see that touching the circle a bit furter down will give a shorter distance to goal and he does in fact have a shorter way to goal than pilot 336.
