||Re: FES handicap adjustment
||Number 3 of 6 in thread
||I would suggest to adjust the handicap of FES propellers equipped gliders down by one point.
For example: Discus 2c 18m FES from 106.0 to 105.0, HPH 304 eS (Shark 18 m FES) from 110.0 to 109.0 etc.
This reduction of handicap by one would only be applicable if the FES propellers are installed.

In which direction do you think they should be adjusted?
Please give example and justification...

It is a fact that the propellers of the FES don't help the performance of a glider.
Some other handicap lists already have made adjustments to handicap of FES equipped gliders vs their pure glider/Jet version.
I would like to request to adjust the BGA handicap/ Glider Speed Indices of the gliders that have the FES propellers installed?
