Checking out ORBX's latest freeware offering

Recommended Posts

ORBX released earlier today a new freeware package in the PNW. So I decided to leave the Legacy in the hangar and go check out this latest offering in the Sierra.

 

Three fields are included: 7WA3 (West Wind), 4WA8 (Riverside) and a private "farmer's field". This flight started at ORBX's 74S (Anacortes) and then north to the Nooksack River while checking out the scenery and then landing at 7WA3. A somewhat bumpy affair all the way, but quite enjoyable. Love the area that these fields are located in. And of course... it's free! Next visit will likely be in the A2A Cub. This package calls for it.

Nooksack River, 4WA8 is on the right, a bit further up the river.

Hi!

 

Beautiful pics and flight. Many thanks. I just purchased Orbx PNW today and just installed it. I'm looking forward to my first flight. I only hope it's ok for FPS because I want to keep that autogen slider cranked up to max!

 

Many thanks,

 

Pierre

A cracking set of pics. Yep, you're right, a great bit of freeware that resides in a beautiful part of PNW.

Yeah I struggled to find it first but its on their forums. If you got to the main page or freeware page of their website there is a little banner that says click to visit the FTX forums. Go on that and it will take you to a page with the download links.

 

Very nice screen shots love 4, 5, and 6.

I'm enjoying that scenery as well, and the Sierra is the perfect plane for that flight, fantastic shots Bryan!!

Can't go wrong with Ant's Sierra. Great product, from a great designer, and at a nice price. FYI, I usually have my RXP 530 in the panel but had loaded a different model for this one.

 

Cheers to all!
