    Your puny Sidewinder is miles ahead of my space Ferrari... :o Well 15 seconds seems like miles.

    I'd submitted my best effort of 11:05 on Sunday night when I decided to give it one more go and got in a 9:49. I still made mistakes (I think one approach was a double loop AND drop out 100km+ from the station, but the difference from my earlier runs was that I didn't try things that I'm rubbish at. I'm not very good at threading the needle during approach, but I can do a bad imitation of a Cookiehole looped approach (that's my normal Asp-X method) so I stuck with that. I'm not very good a nailing the sweet spot on the pad to stop instantly, so I made sure that I wasn't going stupidly fast entering the station - so I knew that I'd hit the building behind the pad rather than the back of the station. One thing that's taking getting used to in a fast little ship, is only having time to cancel and request a new pad once. Docking in The Nomad I can manage 2 or 3 cancellations and still have time to line up, so I can usually get a pad that I like, but in Stormrider I need to start accepting "anything except...

    The supercruise approaches in this one are evil, and I've definitely had a few double loops when my first 'braking' loop of shame has quite slowed me down enough. This has often meant that I've ended up dropping out behind the station and having to fly past the arms of doom - well played Edelgard. :) I didn't have chance to race yesterday (it ended up a straight choice between playing for an hour and watching Game of Thrones) and might not manage another run before Friday - hopefully I won't slip too far behind in the meantime. I'm fairly sure that I made a few mistakes in my 9:49 run, so I'm expecting a master of SC like Cookiehole or Alot to smash the 9 minute barrier.

    Slowing down enough to land has definitely been a problem flying Stormrider, I'm used to much more leisurely landings in The Nomad.

    There is the ship clock visible as well. We need the station menu to be up in order to prove you're actually docked, but can take the time from the ship clock in the top right of your HUD if the station clock isn't readable.

    I'm still struggling to control my new Viper Mk III, but my "one last go before bed" turned out okay. :)
