#9 Avsim vs FlightSim RTW Race Thread #9 The final run

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the company on the run.Sadly FS froze on me before we could all make a groupshot for posterity, but that will have to wait until Boston (or before takeoff from LGA).Turned out FS wasn't really frozen solidly. Zooming the flight track made it hang for over a minute each click of the mouse so it appeared frozen.That's why SB kept working, all that didn't get updated was the screen...

It's indeed part of Abacus Corporate Pilot.I bought that 3 years ago just for the Starship (and it's now the only one I still have installed).

Congratulatins Jeroen. Brought the Baton safely in first place! In the most difficult of circumstances. (Would be pretty unhappy to foul up the final landing...)A credit to us all.Mike

Managed to bring it down successfully on the ILS. Actually wasn't too bad--poked below clouds at about 500 feet, disconnected autopilot and brought it in manually. Sweet landing, but sadly didn't get the chance to take any pictures.Here's a few screenshots. Got to go for a few hours but hopefully will be back in time for the group flight.Marc

I reinstalled it when I saw how fast Jeroen was flying--and gave it a few tests. Still excellent considering that it was designed for FS2000 (updated by Abacus to FS2002). Very distinctive sound--not to mention shape. And did I mention FAST?Great stuff guys.Mike

Abacus seems to have made the engines a tad more powerfull than the real ones (and also using a bit more fuel).She's indeed a great mover (as well as a real looker). Shame Beech stopped making them after 52 units (but then, noone was buying them so I can't really blame them. It was too revolutionary).

Hey Guys...Seems that we died just after our arrival to KLGA :)Anyway, looks like FS are almost arriving to meet us, so we'd better start on coordinating ourselves for the final event...How will it be ?? RegardsFrancisco Leit
