Cool... done that. Sorted.

Couple of faulty targets out there... none of my splits have gone. I'd say someone like Ozzy would really lose out on that course

Is it a case of the calculator over estimating the drift or a case of you overestimating the wind speed in real life?

It's difficult to prove or disprove with any degree of certainty, so um.. I dunno

Would it help if instead of saying 5mph I put "5" - then the units are entirely down to what you think they should be

Think it's just due to the dulling effect of woodland.

A random amount on each lane would be nice... plus a random element to each shot... because you can just hold edge, but we know there's times when that might go straight.

I think you're crossing over there from a teaching tool to an FT simulator I know the wobble factor has already crossed that line a bit, but I'm not keen on venturing too far over the line.

I'm just working here... got to have something to make watching progress bars interesting

Cleared the inters... (after about a 20 goes...)... need to map GP3 beforehand now

Will you be able to put this thread under your "Sticky" section Rob, so that the link will always be easy to find?
