  1. X Plane.VR Recording with G Force Card. MD 500. How to use OBS to output VR recordings. Wonky's Blog! 58. Also, apologies to JOE HUDSON as I didn't give him the credit for the paint job! and said it was Brett. I can only say I am a babbling fool and should get my facts right. First let me say have a look at the MD500 review by Joe Hudson on the Helisimmer page link below: The original work by BRETTS HUGHES, has been updated to the New Hughes 500D that also included work by Alex Gifford, Ben Russell and an updated version of the SASL conversion by OzWookiee . From the information in the review, it helped me work out the best settings I have found for flying the MD500 as shown in this video. Also, I should mention that we should all be ticking the send data to Laminar box also shown in the video. They need to know that we are flying in VR and also Helicopters are on the increase due to the VR experience. Finally a way of recording VR flight with a G Force card and use OBS to make it the screen size that you want. sorry for the really croaky voice this week and my dog barking in the background.

  2. X plane. wonky's Blog! 56. Getting back into it, stall turns and getting into the hover. After a short break from flying getting back into it, with more enthusiasm than talent. I point out, just because you make videos it doesn't make you a great pilot. also, it helps if Cortina is not on and your joystick is actually stuck to a flat surface.
  3. X Plane, How Wonky's Blog is put together, OBS and G-Force Capture software. The Power director editing. I hope it's enough to get people started on making videos for X Plane. Had a week off from X Plane and couldn't think of a subject this week. So I am showing how I put the blog together using OBS and G Force capture. I also show my own set-up at home. Sorry about the shaky video bit that the dystonia condition that I suffer with. For more information about Dystonia click the link below. I do try and promote awareness of the condition, you also might hear it called essential tremor. But if you or a friend ever start to shake when trying to drink from a cup or can't hold your hands or head still then please look at the link below.

  4. X Plane. Wonky's Blog! 54. Flat SCreen and VR with the Scheibe SF-25C. Another long ramble about everything. Flat screen mode up to 12 mins and then a small section on how I record in VR. Any tips are greatly welcome. Last part a bit about how I think VR will bring more people to helicopters as the ultimate VR experience. But we have to wait for that big XPlane update so that more average PC's can run VR smoothly Also sorry about the AB412 update, yes the helicopter had been updated and I had done that but what I saw was the SWISSCREATIONS RELEASED THE BELL 412 EXPANSION PACK FOR X-PLANE. sorry for any confusion. As usual much wiser to check out the Helisimer page. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  5. X Plane Wonky's Blog! 52. Having a closer look in VR at some of the textures In Orbx true Earth South/London. Finally back in the seat again after having a few bad weeks with my Dystonia problems. Made the big 100 subscribers so thanks to everyone that pressed that button. So only a quick flight in the Cabri having a closer look at the Orbx textures for London. Also for some reason called the Queen Elizabeth II Bridge the Queen Mary Bridge? Hopefully back on my feet again and will get back into the swing of things. Thanks for all the good wishes on Facebook. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  6. Thanks for the reply Jeff. I can't moan too much, look what they have done and how good it looks. But if they want to get the shears out that would be great. Thanks for the kind comments. Dave
  7. X Plane. Vskylabs Autogyro. Wonky's Blog! 51. Sorry to say not much going on this week been laid up in bed with my dystonia problems but managed to get some more footage of the Vdkylabs autogyro at Shoreham and at Machmell Fisheries. Just some more fun and games. also starting to wonder if Orbx have it in for me as two new trees have popped up on the Shoreham test track that I use for low-level flying blocking the route, and that other Helicopter is still on the Helipad spoiling all the hover practice at Shoreham. Its a good job Orbx are doing such a good job or I might complain.
  8. X Plane. VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter. Wonky's Blog! 50. The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project add-on for X-Plane 11. At last the Chance to fly in VR a Gyrocopter over London. Even Tower Bridge opened up for me as I approached. At the eight-minute mark.for those that can't watch it all. Should I call it a shopping basket with blades on top?" The VSKYLABS VSL B-8M Gyrocopter Project is a highly accurate lightweight Gyroplane flight dynamics and handling simulation, designed for X-Plane 11.
  9. X Plane. VSKYLABS Test-Pilot: Mini-500 Project update. Wonky's Blog! 48. Update on the Mini 500 and rather a long ramble about other things, x plane, and x52 Hotas life the universe and everything else that comes to mind. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  10. Goodbye Old Friend. Wonky The 1st has passed on and been replaced with an X52 Hotas. Wonky's Blog47! Wonky finally called it a day last Friday and has now been replaced with an X52 HOTAS. Not to much content in this Blog As I get used to the new stick, But it does Mean I can now get back into some DSC content. If anyone has the answer to the X52 pinkie button problem please let me know. Youtube and the web do not seem to know the answer to why it disappears as a modifier button even when programmed directly into DCS. I will try much harder in the next video.
  11. X Plane 11. Autorotations in The Cabri G2. Wonk's Blog! 46. Just some basic information on how to do autorotations in the Cabri G2 from VSKYLABS. Based at Shoreham using the updated Orbx True Earth Great Britain South. As usual, nothing is perfect but give it a go it's a great deal of fun and will add to your Helicopter experience. Set one button up on the joystick to cut the fuel off and another to reload the model without graphics for when you get it wrong. Have Fun!

  12. Learning your first banked turns with Cabri G2 helicopter in X Plane. Wonky's Blog! 45. Part Two. I thought I would pass on a few tips that I use when a friend's come around the house and says "let's have a go" to make sure they get some success straight away.

  13. Learning To Hover with Cabri G2 in X Plane.Wonky's Blog! 44. After a live stream chat with the "The Eccentric Milliner" the other day about how he is now giving Helicopters ago in X Plane. I thought I would pass on a few tips that I use when a friend comes around the house and says "let's have a go" to make sure that they get some success straight away. The only other tip that I do not mention is to have the engine set to autorun at start-up if you are going through a bad period. Everyone has a different way of doing things but I am a firm believer that at the beginning helicopters are quite stable until we touch them.

  14. Going out to dinner. So it's out early! X Plane. Wonky's Blog 43. VSKYLABS Test-Pilot: Mini-500 Project Goes To London. As usual, the word fantastic is mentioned too often even though it is. And the arch we fly through down the mall is Admiralty Arch. And is a landmark building in London which incorporates an archway providing road and pedestrian access between The Mall, which extends to the southwest, and Trafalgar Square to the northeast. I think I say we are flying down the mail but it's actually"The Mall" This helicopter is a bundle of fun. It's not for the beginner, any of the larger helicopters will be much better for learning to hover. But for out and out Fun it's a big thumbs up from me, I will do a VR version next week sometime. I hope you enjoy the video and give it a thumbs up or subscribe I am now after the big 100! Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun https://youtu.be/mQpeTo0McvA
