Nice shots! Your resolution is definitely higher than "our" UK South. Does anyone know which altitude the photo texture images where shot from? Well, I guess we'll just have to fill it in with FLED models :-)Hans Petter

Someone should take three screenshots (zoomed-in with shift-Z) in the same exact location of as the photos, and post them side-by-side. Anyone has the time to do this? I won't have the time until next week-end... :-(Cristian

I agree - nice shots Q! But there are some clear mistakes:1) there are abviously cars on the road. I don't want to be picky but apart from the occasional toycrd and ferr01, when have you ever seen cars on roads?2) shine on the water - clearly your camera is not using my old TNT2 nvidia - I have never seen shine on water, even around Golden Gate. Possibly an artifact.3) excessive details on umimportant models like farm buildings. Your framerates must have been verrrry slow - now wonder you only got three pictures. Next time you fly there, use CTRL-M to change the model detail.But the last shot, seeing that was a real feeling of Deja Vu - it looks just like the Bembridge (or is it the IOW? - I always mix those two up) airport area, where you take off flying towards a ridge - here the real model approximates very closely to agtim's work. Except it was Sandown.Well done Q!

Hi all, There are more photos but the forum let me upload only three last night. Hans we flew at 1300ft from Bournemouth to Sandown (actually under the radio tower height I think). It would be nice to have a direct comparison with FU3 but I don't think I will have time.More photos to come tonight short final Sandown 23 Sandown Tower (for agtim) We noted also that the end of runway markers are black and white not the traditional red and white Portsmouth for Crisian Biggin hil and tower (for Rob ?) Cheers

Hi,Nice shots, but I'd better point out that your secondpicture is in fact Yarmouth, and not Cowes!Next inlet along the north coast of IOW is Newtown Creek.Cowes is away in the distance.:-wavePete
