More fun over the Napa Valley

Recommended Posts

Enjoying a tour in my personal air vehicle, the VSkylabs Mini 500 for Xplane11.  This copter is even equipped with their autopilot for Microlights which holds the altitude and heading during cruise flight.  It's a wonderful low speed platform for VFR photo scenery flight or autogen flight too.  I love Xplane11's modeling of rotor craft such as gyros, copters and large manned drones such as an odd freeware drone I found in the .org.  Also there are some good blimp models, albeit with 2d panels, still fun to fly around with.

Very nice shots, John, as always. When you create your own photoscenery, what zoomlevel do you use?

16-It is a tradeoff between sharpness and scenery size, but it works at any altitude above 1000 ft AGL or so.

That's what I use too
