  1. Good grief, you guys can't get them out quick enough. Last night it was ENSG and now KBID. Great stuff and 2 very pleasant surprises. So here are a few shots from my first flight. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. Another excellent addition to the ORBX world. Now which airport will be released tomorrow?

  3. Benjoglove has requested some shots of NZAA so it's strap on the paramotor and a quick flight. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
  4. Happened to be hanging around over Malibu and only just spotted these! Nice one, guys! Thought I'd try and get a closer look as I didn't know how long the display was set for, nearly got exploderated for my troubles <grin>
  5. Thought I'd drop in on the Enterprise the other day. Left the tux in the cupboard though. Not sure I was entirely welcome.
  6. Finn and Jake are busy today to I had to have this adventure on my own. Besides you cannot get 2 people and a dog on a paramotor. 1. This is not the land of Ooo but high in the Rocky Mountains in Western Wyoming. 2. 3. Trying to avoid the abundant bird life in the forest. 4. Time to change horses at Fox Park. Too wet and cold in the paramotor and time to give the Huey a whirl after a long absence. 5. In the Yellowstone NP. 6. 7. 8. The top end of Jackson Lake and Owl Peak. 9. Signal Mountain Camping area. 10. Jackson Lake Dam 11. Approaching KJAC with Grand Teton partly hiding behind the clouds. 12. Using the Huey to hide the all black AI A319. 14. Not a bad landing for me. Didn't damage any of the other planes on the ground. Hope you enjoyed the flight.
  7. Flown in and out of Darrington many times without realising just how much detail there was. Never even remembered the timber yard. One of the advantages of the Paramotor is seeing all the scenery close up including some crazy birds! 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14.
  8. Have not been to Concrete for ages. No better way to look around than with the Paramotor. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Many thanks for another 4 V3.0 upgrades at no charge.
  9. The new installers are arriving thick and fast these days along with other goodies from both ORBX and other developers it is a busy time. The paramotor has become the standard way for me to get a close up look at the scenery these days, the poor old Cub being relegated to the odd excursion. NZQN is the latest location for a squiz. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Another wonderful airport now useable in P3DV3 at no cost, ORBX has to be the best.
  10. My first look at ESSA with the paramotor. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. As expected a first class scenery with so much to look at. Well done Marcus and Philip, you have done a superb job.
  11. OK, hope this all shows up ok. My first attempt at a few screenshots. It's taken me maybe a couple of years and a bucketload of money but I've finally got myself a system that feels like it works. It really has been an 'interesting' journey. I got interested again about the time MS Flight came out - I saw a copy of "PC Pilot" on the shelves, bought it, looked at some of the pix of the state of play at the time and realised flight simming had moved on in a big way from the wire frame days of the eighties. Bought FSX, got that loaded and then bought FTX Global and OpenLC. Started adding stuff but never managed to get any consistent decent frame rates or smoothness. Reasonable PC (i7-2700k, 16gb, W7Pro64, Radeon R9 etc) but massively overloaded with all sorts of apps and tweaks. Last year I retired, cashed in a fairly useless pension and blew most of it on a new PC from Wired2Fire (i7-4790k, 16gb, 2xSSD, Nvidia 980ti plus a 40" 4k Philips monitor). Plus by now I have bought vast amounts of ORBX scenery, (plus various other hi-res cities and major airports), gotten myself Rex4'd, ASN'd, TrackIR'd and most importantly - P3D'd. Got a few nice utils, getting comfortable with the various configuration files and beginning to feel in control of things rather than at the mercy of them. Can't fly to save my life still - very much a "ctrl-E, fly around a bit, Esc-end flight" kind of guy at the moment but I plan to start getting to grips with all that next. First, I wanted to get my little universe sorted out properly (what? me? god complex?). In the meantime - the paramotor is an AMAZING way to waft gently round the wonderful world of ORBX (and isn't it just the most wonderful place here?). I am looking forward to a very rewarding time discovering the world in the coming years (did way too much real life travelling back in the 80s and 90s, fsim airports are the only ones you'll get me near now). I'm just going to try a single screenshot with this first post, and if that works I'll add a few more in afterwords. Hope they inspire others. cheers, Andy
  12. Didn't realise LIDA was released until about an hour ago. A great piece of scenery. 1. Strap on the paramotor and have a squiz. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Happy to end up on the hospital not in it. Now realised I have not shown the full glory of this excellent scenery by not having my autogen settings where they should be. So I have scrapped a lot of the shots. Don't really want to retrace my steps today in the paramotor. What shall I do? Hang on lads, I've got a great idea! 9. 10% fuel and no passengers! 10. V1, rotate. Thank gawd for those words! 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. A top scenery with plenty of wonderful ground features surrounded by some fabulous scenery. Well done Sylvain, thanks for the freebie and I hope this is the first of many releases from you to enhance this great looking part of the world.
  13. It is great to see no fewer than 5 English airports with new installers last night. The first on I have installed is Goodwood and I have just done a circuit in the Paramotor 1. Off we go and it is into Madgwick Corner. Some of my earliest memories are of going to race meetings here in the late 50s early 60s. 2. Heading up towards Fordwater. 3. Through Fordwater. 4. Into St Mary's. This is where Stirling Moss had his near fatal accident in 1962. 5. Looking back at St Mary's and Fordwater. 6. Entering into the long Lavant Corner. We used to watch broadcasts on BBC's Grandstand on a Saturday afternoon. They only had one camera near the start line so some of the circuit was out of view. 7. Now speeding down Lavant straight. In 1970 another motor racing legend, Bruce McLaren was not as fortunate as Stirling Moss, as he lost his life testing a sports car which left the straight and hit an old marshal's post. 8. The circuit held it's last race meeting in 1966 as the cars were getting too fast and the circuits owners did not want to make alterations to the track to slow the cars. 9. Woodcote Corner. 10. Heading out of Woodcote towards The Chicane which was my favourite part of the circuit. 11. The old brick walls of The Chicane have been replaced by tyres. 12. We used to watch the racing from a Grandstand on the left, opposite the pits but it was demolished a long time ago. 13. Back at the start line and the pits. 14. It is very pleasing to see the circuit is back in use today and host the Goodwood Revival every September. 15. Many thanks to ORBX for bringing back so many memories from a long time ago with this rendition of Goodwood.
  14. Last night I installed the Paramotor from SimMarket and found it to be perfect to examine my scenery, I now have a new flying motorcycle. Almost instant takeoff from small fields, great rate of climb and easy to control with a speed range from around 10 to over 40 mph. I use EZDOC to control my views and flying flying around from treetop to over 5000 ft the scenery is wonderful. It's amazing how much detail you can take in at 20 mph at 50 ft from the object you want to see. I am thinking about spending the next year on a slow flight from Dutch Harbor to Key West via who knows where the wind will take me. This is possible because in FSX I will always have perfect weather and unlimited fuel for those long over water stretches between islands. Dale
  15. Brought the Franz Luftfahrt Paramotor at the week end and just love it. Have done several flights around ORBX airports and it is a fantastic way to explore. A flight in the freezing weather today, the instruments read just 34F and I can remember from England that that means brrrrrrrrrrr. 1. Setting off in pleasant conditions flying through the forest dodging the birds and squirrels. 2. So here we are over the Grand Canyon. 3. Clouding up a bit and a few snow flurries. 4. Over 4000ft above the Colorado River. 5. What a great way to view the scenery, just a bit draughty though. 6. Maybe drop down and look at the river. 7. Pigeons eye view. 8. One last look at the great scenery before dropping into a canyon within a canyon. 9. At river level and the visibility has suddenly closed in. 10. Climbed up in nearly zero visibility and finally broke through into clearish sky. 11. With more bad weather closing in it is time to head for shore. 12. ASN dining a magnificent job of rapidly changing weather. 14. Lost sight of the airport so best to put down. Better make a call to be picked up and taken back to the airport by road. Can't do that in a Cessna! Highly enjoyable flying the Paramotor, well worth the 15 or so AUD.
  16. Thought I would have a look around ZGGG in the paramotor and then make a nuisance of myself with the departing traffic. A clearish day for once here in Guangdon Province. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Baiyun is a great airport not only for it's scenery but also it is central to my collection of Asian destinations.
