Telluride and the Paramotor

Recommended Posts

Flew the A2A B377 into Telluride from Jackson Hole-a very hairy approach to Rwy, 9 which required two go arounds :fool:     Great, great scenery at Telluride.  After shutdown, per my normal routine with ORBX, I switched to flying the Paramotor and the scenery was even better.  I didn't stick to real life experiences (you can't fly a Paramotor within 5 miles of an airport or in crowded areas) but flew illegally anyway at about 17mph through the town, up and down the mountainsides and even followed the ski lifts to the top of the run and down!  Really interesting experience.  Usually I go sightseeing with Heidi in the A2A Cub, or run around on the ground with Bob, but this was better than either because it was slower than the Cub and could go up hills, which Bob can't.  I highly recommend flying it to get the most out of ORBX eye candy.

Flying low and slow is a great experience with ORBX. When I have done that before, I raise raise myself above the plane then set the

simulation speed to 1/2. I know, not quite the same but pretty close.

Yeah, it's a shame to fly into Orbx GA airports, shut down and then take off again. You miss so much of the little details they hide all over.

vp49p3,

 

I was not aware of this paramotor. It looks great! Thanks for pointing it out.

 

What version of P3D are you using?

Sorry for the very late response, M1KE.  I use v 3.0.
