  1. Nice video I like the churches in Heidelberg or some town nearby. I like how you managed to choose such a good landing ground! It is a perfect example of carburetor icing - thanks for sharing that and for your explanation. As you said - low temperatures and moisture in the air. Carburetor temperature is usually several (up to 10 or even little more) degree lower than the outside air (due to pressure drop in venturi). So the air gets sucked in, ice builds up and the airflow is disrupted. In such weather, I would suggest using carb heat as a precaution.
  2. From my flight today - live on youtube. Winds: 14013G24KT (direction: 140, speed: 13 knots, gusts: 24 knots). Video starts during approach, but you can check the whole flight if you like it - route and flight plan are linked in the description - a very nice VFR flight for those who own Vector and openLC Europe.
  3. Hi! I recently flew the localizer rwy 26 and then visual circling approach to Innsbruck (LOWI) in some nice weather (nice for this approach). Hope you like it. Narrative and comments in Polish. If you like Dubrovnik - check my departure (beginning of the video) and landing (end of this video). Vatsim ATC provided APP service in Dubrovnik.
  4. I can no longer edit my first post. I probably have messed permissions for that first Image URL
  5. EZdok / EZCA camera add-on. Usually, I use a keyboard/joystick shortcut for these views that keep changing (instruments close up, left, right, left-forward, right-forward).
  6. Backtrack runway 26 in Sekiu (11S). I flew to Sekiu (you can watch the whole flight in the Videos forum). Then I had to backtrack to parking after landing on 26. I love and simultaneously hate trees on this airport. They look great from the runway but seem terribly close on approach (rwy 26). The weather was nice today in PNW.
  7. Join me on a trip from Skagit to Sekiu. During this flight, I also visited Anacortes and Friday Harbor.
  8. )Hi, The video is in Polish, but I thought you might enjoy the views (True Eart Netherlands) and a plane - slightly different from what we are normally used to
  9. I am. But I did not think their trees are supposed to show in airport sceneries. That is the only Sometimes the light and the view are so nice that I forget to press V
  10. I use Envtex and Sky Force for textures and cloud models. And I use Active Sky to draw clouds. I think I used Sky Force sun glare in this image (later I switched to Envtex sun - not as beautiful, but there are bugs in sky force sun textures). HDR enabled (with dynamic lights, lights illuminating ground and lens flare). Brightness 1.05, Bloom 0.5, Saturation 0.96. I adjust brightness after each change to Envtex and Sky Force settings.
  11. Thanks @Jack - I'm not really sure. I thought it is how trees in Skagit scenery look like (Nature Flow).
  12. Early morning flight from Anacortes (or maybe from Friday Harbor?). A pic from my latest review.
  13. Flying DA62 from Groningen to the Frisian Islands.
  14. Hi, Currently it's available in Polish only, but still, I'd like to share it with you. Visuals probably speak for themselves
  15. What did the WSDOT airport plate say? "Observe noise abatement procedures" F-100s are the best at this I have to agree with VH-KDK - the second from last is great! I also like the first (top) image. Nice idea taking the Sabre to Orcas.
  16. Geezer - it's really easy - just go to settings page in FTX Central and set correct Insertion points. I described it in my guide to ORBX sceneries: http://c-aviation.net/guide-orbx-products-global-vector-openlc/ Just scroll to the part where I mention Library Insertion Point (ctrl+f will help you find it in the text) - it's located just under FTX Central Settings heading.
  17. Flying Cessna 172 on Vatsim from Juneau, AK (PAJN) to Gustavus, AK (PAGS). According to Vatsim rules, Anchorage Center takes responsibilities of Juneau Delivery, Ground and Tower so I speak to a single controller from startup until I switch to Gustavus CTAF frequency to announce my arrival at non-towered airport. Sceneries: - Southern Alaska - Gustavus - Juneau Aircraft: - Cessna 172 (A2A Simulations) Weather: - Active Sky - REX Sky Force - TOGA - Envtex Shading and color correction: Envshade My setup: Check http://C-Aviation.net
  18. I have to thank Marius Kramer for this nice color scheme He's doing superb work! https://edrm-repaints.com/
  19. The trip I flew today. Low clouds blocked me before I reached Ross Lake, but still - it was fun to fly there. Enjoy Anacortes (74S) and PNW.
  20. Hi I'd like to share some videos that I'm doing lately flying live on youtube. The voiceover is in Polish, so it may be a little difficult to understand what I'm saying, but I thought you may like the music and my flying. And the sceneries of course I have four flights for you today. Live #34 - Testing new config (much better quality than before) over Pacific Northwest and Anacortes (74S), and Sekiu (11S). Live #35 - Twin Otter in IFR flight from Gustavus (PAGS) to Ketchikan (PAKT) Live #36 - IFR training in Cessna 172. Gustavus (PAGS) to Juneau (PAJN) with LDA 08 approach flown twice (with different IAF) Live #37 - a short VFR tour of PNW - Anacortes (74S) to Skagit (KBVS) Hope you enjoy.
