The Dive Pool and Scoring
Formation Skydiving: To create a level playing field for all FS competitors who compete in different sized tunnels, we will use the dive pool for 12-foot tunnels that can be found in the IBA FS rules. Tunnels with a top camera (high in the diffuser) will use that for recording the flights. If your tunnel is not equipped with a top camera, we will install a camera on the highest point of the tunnel glass.
Vertical Formation Skydiving: Since the complete VFS dive-pool can be flown in a 12-foot tunnel, we will use all blocks and randoms in the IBA VFS rules. All tunnels will use a bottom camera mounted in between the turning vanes in the plenum.
2-Way VFS: It is important to present the points to the view of the tunnel camera. For judging purposes, we will use the camera that films straight on from the control room. If points are not visible to the camera, the judges will not be able to credit them.
Freefly and Neo-Freestyle: It is important to fly a routine that is always in the view of the tunnel camera. For judging purposes, we will use the camera that films straight on from the control room. If parts of the routine are not in frame it can only be partially judged and the scores will obviously be lower.
