Ranger bonus point question

If the three tasks are finished before the 15 minutes are up, but one or both of the distance measurements are not within the 10 cm accuracy target, are the time bonus points still awarded?

Re: Ranger Pressure Release for OBS Release Mechanism

I'm confused because that sounds a lot more complicated than what the manual gives as acceptable pressure release systems for onboard batteries. From the manual: Examples of acceptable methods for housing batteries include: • A PVC pipe with wires penetrating one end and the opposite end plugged wit...

Hi. Can you provide more detail on the OBS connector holder in the OBS? For example could it just be a basket?

Would a waterproof container using a cork as the pressure release be acceptable?

I'm re-posting this because I think my original post went on the wrong part of the forum: We received the notice that the technical documentation is due April 21st (this Friday).
