Short Description: None Provided

 

For Real world Glider Pilots; Don't bother I already know:-)

 

So this is from a flight from over a month age (end of April). Picked up Mega Scenery Earth Switzerland 50% off and decided to take the Old AeroSoft DiscusX out and see if ASN provided some life of the ridge. I was trying to find a historical day with a 20kt plus wind blowing perpendicular to the Valley but didn't have much luck. It would be nice if ASN had a search feature like that. Maybe it does:-)

 

Any expected to be up and down bit much to my surprise I caught the ridge and to an epic flight over the Alp! LOL. So here a 10 min. edited out of the 1.5 hour flight. I very nearly killed my self several times and one point I was on a collision course with the downward slop of a hill at near stall speed. I had the presence of mind to drop the gear and I landed on the slope excelerated down the hill and took off again managing to catch so lift and climb away. LOL Its not in the video. I would have included it bit there where some ugly graphical anomalies.

 

It would be awesome if Aerosoft updates the Glider DiscusX for Prepar3D. I am sure its not working right. Then gauges are for sure off.
