First flight in the Osprey - still getting to grips with things <grin>

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

So, I'm slowly getting familiar with XP11. Learning about controls, scenery etc. Gone and bought 16tb of disk (8tb mirrored) to hold Forkboy's Ortho scenery (and boy does it look great), discovering all sorts of things about how to make it all work the way I like, and then spotted the MV22 for sale. Really like this beast and am trying to get to grips with the excellent Maryadi version in P3Dv4, so had to buy this. First really enthusiastic buy of an aircraft for XP. Loaded it up and off I went -

so far, so good . . .

Ok, so I guess it's time to RTFM. (actually, have done since this and am coping better now. Even managed a landing without bursting any tyres. Couple of hundred yards short of where I was aiming, but hey, one thing at a time)

(PS no pixels were harmed in the making of this scenario)

I don't think that's the way you're supposed to fly that. :biggrin:

Also, in pic 2 I wouldn't want to drive over that overpass in the lower right corner. Could be exciting. 

Other than that and the transmission lines and towers, it looks pretty good.

You  can damage ac if flown outside of engines parameters ie...over torque engine like will happen on some carenado aircraft.

Rick, that is certainly a challenging overpass, for sure. And yes, there certainly seem to be a huge number of power pylons around in that part of the world in the sim. Haven't investigated what's going on there yet (still getting to grips with the basics, as you can see <grin>)

Hi TImothy, and yep, you're not wrong. I can keep a closer eye on that in the p3d version as I'm more used to the way everything works there. But I'm loving this XP/Ortho world and can see me spending more and more time in it.

Glad to have bought a smile to your keyboard, Patrick!
