Hi, I am the creator, I could certainly help. When Iím close I generally eyeball ranges like that, but yes, you can certainly take the turn into account. I usually use a standard mast of about 35 m.

In reading through your posts I think you are definitely on the right track. I will say though that that kind of precision is not necessarily needed. When Iím doing a side attack like this, I try to get the gyro as close to zero as possible so that range does not matter to the solution. Range becomes more for situational awareness at that time.

Some of the attack planning steps in here, including that one where youíre trying to determine what speed to put yourself at the correct distance for the track, they are interesting, but I donít use them in practice. They are instructional, but over time you just develop a feel for it without having to calculate it.
