  1. 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!
  2. 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. However, it is an independent VSKYLABS project which is not related, affiliated and/or endorsed with Cicaré S.A. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  3. 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.

  4. Last 10 miles home to Shoreham low level flight. MD 500 Full Pack. Using the GTN750 to give me the basic rout home . Chase the police car and then last half you can hear the new sounds much better. Video sound is realy dead compared to home speakers.Blade slap starts at 3mins 30 when I just push a bit Harder. Lets not mention the landing approach or the flying through cars and and trees. All the graphs on the left is me trying to get my PC temp down and this was one of the tests. If you like that sort of thing New MSI and Riva tuner let you do a on screen overlay. Once I have everything smooth the it can come off as i do see a small frame hit. Again thanks to everyone that has made this helicopter a reality. Dave
  5. VR flight in the NIMBUS SIMULATIONS HUEY FOR X-PLANE, Wonk's Blog 67. With luck it should have processed in 4K by now! I have just finished my first VR flight in the NIMBUS SIMULATIONS HUEY FOR X-PLANE. It was pure joy. I know its a smaller screen but this is a 4k video, I think in VR we need to see more up and down. We waited a long time for this and it looks and flies like a dream. It's a shame my voice over cant let the full sound come through. I have posted a flat screen version of a flight with no voice over at the usual helicopter simulation sites so you can hear what it sounds like Wonky's Blog! 66. This is the start off Low Level Heaven for me. Comparisons to DCS, I would just say the interior is softer, more used looking but in a good way. Flight dynamics just feel right. I am not a real world pilot but I would hope this is what it would have been like, minus the fear, smell, smoke, bullets, and vibration.
  6. X Plane. GTN750 in The MD500 Enhancement Mod. It's like a Teslar Car. Wonky Blog! 64. Before I start if you love this Helicopter have a look at Nick Bates video, link on you tube description. Well I could not resist it any longer, Boys and Toys as they say. I finally purchased the GTN750 unit once I had seen the upgrade that Fergus Moloney had done to put the Avitab in and then he did the GTN750. link on you tube description when I mention that I had a disastrous purchase of the GTN 750 it was because I purchased the incorrect version ie Flight simulator x, /But got a refund straight away after sending a email. well done reality XP. I could not resists. But please note that it will not control your MD 500 but has so many great features I had to give it a go. Luckily Helisimer.com have put together a page that shows all the mods in on one page and You can find also in my link on you tube description So back to the video. Yes Mr stupid came to call and decided to use the pop out window in VR to make the display even bigger! This is not for the purist I will have two versions of the MD. One for the " lets get it as close as we can" and the other for When Mr stupid/fun wants to play. You have the choice. Being British I never read the manual but I had seen videos. I managed to get one flight in with the Dreamfoil Bell and managed to get it to fly from Shoreham to Gatwick Airport and was so confident I left it to run and went for dinner on my return it had crashed! But when I looked at my moving maps program it had gone to Gatwick and circled until it ran out of fuel and crashed, Obviously spent to much time eating my Lunch. This unit can also be installed in Toms Bell 429 and that's my next job link on you tube description. As usual I Babble on about things I do not know about. We have some low flying at 11 mins and 13mins and Gatwick at 19mins. I also have quite a lot of stutter both on the computer and myself on this episode. So sorry for that and the shaky hands were not to bad this week. AS usual for more information about the condition I suffer from have a look at the dystonia link to make more people aware my condition as it can often be confused with Parkinson's.

  10. X Plane VR Flight 40 FPS ish. with Avitab. OVR and the AB412. Wonkys Blog! 62. And so this will be the last one I do on FPS for a while as it is such a movable feast and every one has to find your own sweet spot. I was more than happy with everything turned right up and x plane showing 22.5 FPS at Shoreham. but if you follow all the groups they say it has to be 45FPS. So in this video I go for the 40+ FPS i turn antialazing right down but turn up super sampling to 1.5 to sharpen up everything. Also running Avitab map mode and OVR. The video does not do justice to how good it looks. I also had a problem on the upload that makes the sound squeak now and again. I have no idea on that one. I have kept it in the single long view as that gives the best resolution the original was captured in G Force Capture in 4 k mode so that it could be blown up if required to fill the screen but this is what it looks like in the headset. Sorry as usual for the constant looking left and right but when I fly that what I do as I am generally quite low. Engine off auto at the end just about made it. Please also remember the condition I suffer from and have a look at the dystonia website as one day you might see the tell tale signs in yourself or members of your family. It's often confused with Parkinson's but is not the end of the world please have a look and make people more aware of the condition.
  11. Auto In Blue! MD 500 engine off full auto at Shoreham. Playseat support not done up and comes off just going into the Auto. Joystick on my lap and still got away with it. It was a real emergency and no flames. Great way to end a Sunday. Have a good week chaps. Wonky Joystick Productions A voice Made For silent Movies Videos For fun
  12. 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.

  15. surveying the airport area of Shoreham(EGKA) near Brighton at UK-southcoast via a police-heli. Again here is the grass as 'british-green' as possible.
  16. A quick trip from Shoreham to Goodwood in the Centurion. Warming up for the (hopeful) release of the A2A C172. Also off to Florida at the end of November for four weeks to do my PPL in a 172! Until then, the T210 will suffice. Unfortunately, my B17 log has become corrupt and me being the fool I am, didn't backup the file. So while that's having some maintenance in Dubai, I'll be bombing round the UK in something small and relatively fun! On to the shots.. Pre-flight checks. The line. ATC sending me on a bizarre route to the holding point.. not gonna listen to them again. Back on the tarmac! Lets rock and roll! Beaches are pleasantly devoid of any life. Unbelievably slippery aircraft. Coming down. Short finals. Parked up.
  17. A new fresh install of FSX after a disasterous PC-crash on a new HighEnd system, first flight in Eu-england around airport shoreham and in a new installed aircraft, the cirrus SR22 GTS Turbo HD, enjoy the views:
