  1. Hi JS41Flyer, Yes, it would make it more difficult for sure, and dangerous. Reasons are obvious: at nearly 20%, we have to land almost climbing, so the speed would need to be maintained with enough power, and the flare is even steeper to avoid touching the nose wheel first! That is why in real life they have a long enough flat part first.
  2. Definitely fun, except for your attitude indicator...
  3. Just start the plane when zombies are close to the engine, and do NOT say "clear prop!" !
  4. I FINALLY understand why children are scared of Father Christmas !
  5. Hi JS41Flyer, Not really... In reality, the less steep bottom part is much much longer than in this Orbx scenery. In this scenery there is an almost flat bottom that is far shorter than in real life, and too short to touch down on it. Thus, you have to touch down on the steep bit further up, almost 19%, but then this is far too steep for this... That is why in real life, they have a long bottom part that is not so steep, where they can touch down, then the steeper part helps the plane to slow down. They had good reasons to build it this way. I don't know why in the Orbx scenery the runway is wrong; the Courchevel runway is the ESSENTIAL part of this location, the rest is nice, but just eye candy.
  6. Notice that his plane doesn't stall even when he is well below the white arc! There is no miracle: he did a video where he explains he uses micro vortex generators. I can't find his video just right now, but here is a video that explains micro vortex generators: they allow lift at higher aoa. I found his video about VGs:
  7. My plan is to give the impression I am going to plant myself into something, only for a quick exit just in time, and why not in negative Gs? These poor, hated negative Gs need a bit more respect, if not love. To get you worried is exactly what I want to achieve. Sure you would love flying with me! Boredom and depression are not on my menu; soiled pants maybe be... I flew for about 90 minutes doing one display after the other yesterday, and didn't crash once. I just kept the nicest one. To render 19:25 it took 90 minutes: I only do a tiny amount of videos from raw footage. I flew with the music playing: aerobatics in music = Pure Fun ! Love it! I can't wait for FS2020... Asobo explained in an interview that they asked a real aerobatics pilot to test the new sim, not sure what he would be able to do. He could do his real life routine in the new sim! Video with interviews of the staff at Asobo , the French company doing the sim. Strong French accent! Even for me it's difficult. At the end of the following video (go at 11:30), one explains they asked a real aerobatics pilot, and he could do all his real life stunts in the sim! YESSSSS!
  8. There are bridges in Narvik! Yep! A big one, and a low one... Bridges in Narvik...
  9. Nice. But the bottom of the runway where it is less steep is not long enough, unlike in real life: watch this video, and compare from 00:20 seconds with your X Plane addon: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGN3XA2Mxfs and here from 04:35: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I18EWPVvjM4 We can see that in real life the less steep area goes beyond the 2 "piano keys". Below, I am flying in the FSX addon by a French addon company, and look from 12:10 when I land: same as in real life : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBeT37kdMvc Raymond
  10. I loved when you couldn't be bothered !
  11. Thanks for the links. The 1st link under "Two good short videos", is now outdated; In a comment below, Tech Guides tells to use this one: (BUT read the comment below too!)
  12. Hi nice video. I like flying under, around and close to bridges, like here: And let's not forget that, in 1968, an RAF pilot flew his Hawker Hunter jet fighter into central London on an unauthorised mission and proceeded to make one of the most impressive and memorable political protests in British history, using some of the UK's most famous buildings.
  13. I agree. I fly over places I know well to check them first; if not good I try to get add-ons, and for mountains areas I need a terrain elevation add-on too. Martigny is just OK, but Sion is not.
  14. Nice. I lived the first 32 years of my life in there (time 1:49 to 2:03).
