Really Awesome Stuff

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I just wanted everyone to know a really cool unrealistic flying expirience of mine. I've just done flying with a Trike Ultralight at 99Kts, it's really fun, and everyone should try it. Basically you just change the wind to 99Kts. -> For anyone that doesn't know how to change the wind. --> Under "Current Weather" press "Change"->Click "User Defined-Weather" under that, click "Customize" -> "Advanced Weather" ---> Wind! It's really fun! You don't need to put any throttle whatsoever with the Ultralight. A little more with a little bigger prop aircraft.

Another way that shows FSX is the real deal! The wind actually affects your TAS (True Air Speed) and GS (Ground Speed) and when you have enough of it in the right direction, you'll be off in the air with little or no power!!
This video is a good example, although I have no idea how fast the winds are, but if you look closely in the video you can see the Windsock lines up with his direction and its pretty erect.

:( Thats funny. I was recently using PMDG with 1% fuel left, and it took-off with just 5seconds of 100% throttle! It looked like a Harrier Jump jet so much. :( !

My add-on TrafficX ai 747s just go a couple of lengths or so before they rotate, in calm air. Not very realistic that's for sure.

Yea, I was in Kai Tak's active runway, and I saw one of my traffic Cathay Pacific flying out of it's parking! It was hilarious.
