It looks pretty nice but it was made for X-Plane 10. I’m on the fence, I wonder if it works properly in 11.
Supposedly Khamsin are updating it for XP11, anyone has any experience with them? Can it be expected to be a free update?
This is an interesting aircraft… the VSkyLabs ContraVentus Electric powered glider. You basically climb it up with power on, and then set an effecient glide speed with the throttle back and charge the battery up by a combination of windmilling the prop to drive the motor/generator and solar panels on top of the wings. It doesn’t have ailerons, just elevator and rudder. I found out that it doesn’t handle windy conditions too well .
Here we are departing from Cardiff, for a flight down to Exeter. It really doesn’t need a lot of runway for takeoff.
I can already see Exeter Airport. Where the river Exe widens into an estuary, is a town called Exmouth, where my Grandfather lived. I really love flying around the UK using the OrbX True Earth scenery, spotting familiar places.
My very last X-Plane purchase of 2018 (it has been an expensive year)…
The X-Rotors Leonardo AW319. I posted a few shots on the X-Plane releases thread, but here are a few more of this beautiful helicopter.
In the real world, the most types I was current on at any particular time was two. Some pilots do more and seem to get on just fine. For me though, I prefer to just fly a single type. That’s real world flying where the stakes are a little higher.
In X-Plane and DCS, as far as I’m concerned, the more types the merrier. I like to fly aircraft that I am unlikely to get my hands on IRL, doing types of flying that my career path didn’t lead me to (ie military flying, freight, bush flying, rotary, etc etc). Of course, that makes me a jack of all trades, and master of none in the sim world. I wouldn’t say I’m proficient in any of the DCS Modules right now.
This is going to be a challenge in this weather. We don’t know the location of the ambulance, but we do know the distance. I am not using the GPS to find our hapless ambulance, but the plugin tells me how far away I am from it. That lets me work out a rough direction to fly.
One advantage of the sim is that 2am becomes purely optional .
Now that my Christmas trek is complete, time to look at Air Hauler again. I scrapped my company in BC, and started a new one in the UK (the OrbX True Earth scenery demands that I spend some time taking it all in).
Back in the C172, here we are somewhere between Perenporth and Dunkeswell. Dunkeswell is the closest airport to where I used to live in my teenage years.
