Unfortunately, during the mission editing, my mouse scroll wheel went NONOP*, and I couldn’t find the keyboard command to zoom in/out of the Mission Editor, so I wasn’t able to place all the waypoints as precisely as I would have liked, but they were the general vicinity. sigh
I ended up getting distracted trying to take screenshots and ended up a statistic (CFIT = CFIT +1) with @Fridge eating some southern California desert not too much later.
Overall, the route’s a lot of fun – you get to pick and choose which canyon you want to zip down and which ridge you want to flop over – but the visuals aren’t strong at all. I wonder if there’s a way for 3rd party folks to create a mod/add-on that improves the fidelity of just this area? Would be nice to be able to see the dam, the washed-out bridge, and the other visual references indicated in the R-2508 Complex Users Handbook.
Sadly don’t have any pics or videos, but flew the northern part of this back in September while finishing up the strike eagle b course. It is like flying over another planet, absolutely awesome terrain. Also lots of hornets everywhere not talking to anyone and doing their own thing (blasted navy! ) while doing a pop to lat attack up near E had a hornet fly right through the middle of the hud during the pull, was a little squirrelly to say the least
Oh yeah, the silver cammo one? I have one of those around here. Went to Office Max today and saw three OK Logitech mouses – the 705 looks good at $50 and there’s a wireless MX Master for $100 that has a second wheel on the side.
