  1. Wonky's UH-1 Low And Slow! Just a bit of fun with some low flying, slow motion and the Nimbus UH-1. If can't sleep this might be the video for you. if you have the chance to watch in 4k the detail on the UH-1 and flight model looks fantastic. Happy New Year To Everyone. Best shots for me. 47 secs 1.35 secs 2.05 secs 3.10 secs my favorite. 4.28 secs 6.26 secs. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun.
  2. X Plane 11.40. Low Level Joy Cicare 8 Helicopter. Wonky's Blog! 78. VSKYLABS Aerospace Simulations. New upgrade! what they can improve. They could put my GTN750 just above the key! That would be nice. Just the joy of flying this Cicare 8 blows me away in VR. Having a good old bash around. Talking about how to balance inputs and the to treat low level flying like a race track. Still messing around to see if I can improve on the Oculus mirror so you can get full screen. I still like the long thin view, but I have had a few requests to use full screen. I think some minor adjustment on the the collective curve and I will have this little hot rod flying like the UH-1 for low level heaven. The mass of the UH1 smooths everything out in flight, this is seat of your pants stuff with great viability. So different and yet I love them Both. Upgraded 1.2 and it's a joy.
  3. looks like i cant spell. Xplane, Back in The Cicare 8 after man flu! Wonky's blog 77, For some reason could not edit post Cicare 8 Dave
  4. X Plane, Back in The Cicaro 8 after man flu! Wonky's blog 77 Trying the Oculus mirror again. Been laid up with man flu this week that has some strange affects on my dystonia condition and laid me out flat for a few days so wonky's blog is a bit late and is just a VR fly around in the Cicaro 8. A bit of slow low level flight around the Shoremam area. Really do like this helicopter and its had a few updates this week, if you put your mouse over some of the dials you can change them and also some new paint jobs. The Oculus mirror wasnt to bad but it still reminds me more of a head tracker rather that a a real VR experience, I do like the long view so you can see your feet and the foot well. So just a bit of gun flying around and didn't manage to sneeze once during the video. And we all know how bad man flu is!
  5. VR X Plane VSKYLABS Test-Pilot Cicare-8. Wonky Joystick Productions. Just great in VR so much Glass. Another great bit of work from Vskylabs.
  6. X Plane VSKYLABS Test-Pilot Cicare-8 Wonky's Blog 76. First look at the VSKYLABS Cicare 8. Its 4k so might take some time to process. My first flights and look at the Cicare 8. Outside flying views around the twenty minute mark. It's everything I had hoped it would be. Long video but the details are outstanding. If you have been thinking about it just buy it! This project is part of the VSKYLABS 'Test-Pilot' series, designed specifically for use with X-Plane 11.40+ cutting edge Experimental Flight Model (should be enabled in X-Plane's General Setting menu). The VSKYLABS development of the Cicare-8 project for X-Plane flight simulator was approved by Cicaré S.A.

  7. XPlane VR Cyclic Control, Rubber Bands, Toilet Roll. Getting it all lined up in VR. Wonky's Blog! 74. After the blast of the opening credits you will have to turn the sound up. Watch out for volume increase at the end, It might give you a heart attack. Probably my most embarrassing video to date!. First part shows the development of my VR Cyclic Controller and in true "Blue Peter" fashion, Rubber bands , plumbers fittings and a toilet roll. For those not in the UK ,Blue Peter was a children's program famous for making toys using things found in the kitchen. I had to make the first part of this video with a webcam, sorry for the sound quality. Part two starting at 8 Mins 50 seconds is how to align the controller in VR and make everything appear in the right place inside your VR experience ie. joystick and VR controller linked and moving the cyclic as if you are inside with everything lined up. If you know a easy way to do this let me know in the comments. I had a few problems with a Oculus download so had to repeat a few bits in this section. This part also shows how good the VR cyclic is over my standard X52 for hovering and precise flight as proven by using Joe Kipfer's hover test program. You can find in the info settings on you tube. I think the experiment has proven its worth proceeding with the VR cyclic minus the toilet roll. But, I will have to think about extending my X52 Joystick to the same 20" extension for my main controller system. It's been great fun testing and trying to come up with ideas without access to a workshop. I always mention my shaky hand and head to promote the dystonia condition and information can be found in the info. Thanks for taking the time to read and watch the video. Things I am sorry about! Sound quality on the webcam at the start. Didn't know the Rift S picked up breathing so well. Still moving my head left and right all the time. Duplicating some of the wording on the second part as I had a Oculus update that crashed my system when filming. Watch out for volume increase at the end, might give you a heart attack.

  8. Why the Rift S Was for Me. Wonky's Blog! 71 So finally I managed to get the Rift S. probably the last person to do a revue but its not a bells and whistles type of thing it's just why it was for me. after the flight sim show I had little doubt the Rift S was the one. Then after flying sorry to say planes for about four hours with the rift S left me in no doubt. Have a listen to me babel on about why and how good it was to meet up with Sergio and guys from Komodo at the show. Its all personnel and so much depends on IPD, Budget and what PC you have. Not much flying and you cant see what I see in the headset so quality has to be seen first hand. I did this time try something with the recording that made the image bigger but didn't give the horrible quality that Oculus mirror gives, a bit of a halfway house to those that sat " I want full screen" and me that wants to see my feet. One thing I will say the mike in the Rift S helped my deep voice quite a lot and less cables not only for the rift but no extra mike.' for everyone else that has a different point of view, enjoy it as I do my new one. VR is the way to go. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun

Joshua Cowan UH-1 Police Helicopter version is another work of art. You need the original Nimbus UH-1 to start with and then download this beautiful version. Flying at Shoreham using True Earth south. Send him some money to buy more coffee. Only a quick flight and ramble about the helicopter, meeting Sergio and using the Rift S for the second time. My first time with the S and why it was for me will be out on Friday as a Wonky's Blog! Joshua Cowan said. "I really like this one, so I thought it deserved some extra love. Totally redone textures and PBR work of the Nimbus UH-1. The real helicopter was an Army bird and transitioned into the civilian side along with one of the pilots".

  11. X Plane. Flight in the UH-1 To Leeds Castle Using Avitab Moving Maps. Wonky's Bog! 71 A quick Flight to Leeds Castle in the UH-1 using Avitab through a VR window. Some Low level flight and also a change in headset and getting a split sound file to open using DaVinci Resolve as my usual editing software would not open the G force split sound feature. Orbx True Earth South for the scenery, and they have done a good job on the castle. Water looks a bit Green for the moat. But a nice short run from Headcorn Aerodrome in Kent - EGKH to Leeds Castle. A good flight for me as it was pretty much done left handed as I had hurt my left arm walking my dog, managed to hold joystick between my legs and lower the collective when required with my left hand hopping it would stay straight.
