  1. Mine too :) This is Orbx Vector + OpenLC NA, with FreeMeshX. The house and cabin scenery are my "creation". Took me 15mn to place them and generate the bgl with P3D Simdirector If my journey brings back that kind of memories, then I'm the happier simmer here ! For me, posting pictures here is to exchange, rather than to show off. Did you know that the Luscombe you are talking about was converted to FSX/P3D ? It's the model from Bill and Lynn Lyons. It's a bit rough around the edges, but it works. Hey, after all the original model is... 13 years old.
  2. The aircraft itself perfectly behaves with P3D4. But I think it was first released at least 8 years ago, and it is starting to show its age.
  3. This is like a 95 kts-P47 Thunderbolt The gun may be for bears, but past the end of November, they are mostly hibernating. You still have to deal with wolves, and when trapping, you may need a gun to shorten the suffering of a trapped animal.
  4. I'm using P3DV4. This is the Flight Replicas Super Cub. I hope some dev would start working on a new one. Thank you. I was wondering if in real life, you have to compensate for the added drag or if it is negligible. Thank you all for your kind comments!
  5. I leave this morning for a 4 month hunting season in the Aleutian Range south of Denali. I just got my good old 1957 Super Cub out of the hangar. Engine preheated because in this morning of mid-November, the temperature is below -10°C. Loaded to its maximum with dried meat, rice, hunting bait, some tools and a rifle on the wing strut. According to my calculation we will take off just 2 lbs below MTOW. And no front wind to give us a bit of lift. This should be a long run. The skis almost grazed the treetops, but here we are. A few wing waves to greet the house where we'll be back in Spring. Somewhere south of Fairbanks, enroute to Healy, our entry door to the Denali National Park Clouds are getting thicker, but not enough to lose track of the George Park hwy The sky temporarily clears just above Otto Lake after Healy. Approaching the bridge over Nenana River, we'll have to find our way below the clouds to head to McKinley Park I guess this is our chance... Still following George Park hwy, we now fly over the Hurricane Gulch Bridge (this default bridge does not come close to the impressive real one) As we pass North of Talkeetna, before entering Rainy Pass, large cumulus show up on the horizon. I'm not sure I'll be able to make it to the camp today... Indeed, only 50 miles from the camp, snow, degraded visibility and cloud cover forces me to land. After 3 hours of waiting on the ground I have to see the evidence. I'll have to camp here while waiting for the sky to clear out. The temperature drops rapidly after sunset. You just have to look up to the sky to understand why. Clouds slowly dissipate and from cloudy, the sky becomes starry. The night was short but the early morning is full of hope. Sky is perfectly clear and calm. It should barely take 30 minutes to fly to my hunting cabin. 20 minutes later, I'm above the Stony River valley, a few miles North of Lake Clark Preserve & Wilderness. My destination is here, somewhere. GPS makes searching almost too easy, and I arrive directly downwind. It's an expression, because at that moment there is not even a breeze in the valley. A last left turn, the flaps extended, and a landing as if on cotton. The Super Cub glides smoothly to the foot of the spruce trees that surround the cabin. Going back to your cabin after months is also risking finding surprises. Bears in particular tend to be overly curious, especially before hibernating. After a careful inspection, nothing to report. The wood cut in the previous season quickly heats the cabin. Everything is quickly ready for a successful hunting season. But here in the wild, you always have to adapt to the unexpected.
  6. I sincerely thank you for taking the time to post a comment here LESO is a beautiful freeware scenery. I think Simzaleak is woring on a V2 version of many of their sceneries. Hopefully, it will bring full P3D V4 compatibility.
  7. Hello fellow simmers Just a short 1h flight between San Juan (Spain, LESO) and Valence Chabeuil (France, LFLU) As I wanted a bit of Rock'n Roll during approach, I found a breezy METAR : LFLU 061430Z AUTO 35025G40KT 9999 FEW062 17/03 Q1019 LESO, the cute scenery by Simzaleak (but really heavy FPS-wise) Very short take-off with those 2 powerful PT6 and one notch of flaps The BTZ SID is basically a slow right turn above the ocean which ends when crossing BTZ above the coast End of the SID above Biarritz Fast cruise above Southern France with 30-40 kts of tailwind for an average of 300 kts GS. The GTN750 indicates a 2000 ft descent to reach our SID entry point MTL at 5 000 ft. Throttle back, nose down, we gently go down following the Vallée de l'Ardèche, to reach the Vallée du Rhône near Montélimar. Heading North having crossed the Rhône, right above MTL The approach to Valence is beautiful between the Massif Central on the Left (West) and the Vercors and Alps on the right (East). FreemeshX provides a great amount of details. I did the whole approach with this Hawker 800 in my 6 coming from Saudi Arabia. With a ~30 kts front wind I was able to take the first left exit and avoid this jet a go-around.
  8. Yeah I dont recall the exact figures but about 30 kts front wind. I think I stopped within 150 ft. But the approach itself wasn't an issue with the GTN following the glide to MAP. Just had to take control to align on the RWY and land at a groundspeed of about 70 kts.
  9. It is limited to ASN users. If you have ASN : - download the weather radar gauge from the library http://goo.gl/oR8Pel - setup your Royal Turbine for 2 GTN units (Realair Tool), but do not enable the 2nd GTN to save performance (F1 tool) - modify your panel.cfg as below, where xx is the number following your last gauge (it should be 20 if you did not modify your panel.cfg previously) This integration perfectly fits and works, but you have to click on the radar screen as there is no button. Upper right tunes the radar range, upper left the angle of scan, and left middle cycles between power off / test mode / normal mode.
  10. Thank you all ! About irony, believe me or not. But right after MENAE, breaking through the clouds, right after seeing the Citation in front of me, I saw a kind of warning Intersection point on my right on the GTN.
  11. Hi all I just wanted to share my last flight from Valdez to Juneau. Your usual 2 hours biturboprop flight, except for the ice cold temps. But this time, after following the RNAV approach, passing through the clouds at MAP and while taking manual control of the aircraft, I found myself in short final right behind a Cessna Citation. I tried to reduce my approach speed to ~110 KIAS but I was ordered a go around - had to climb to 9 000 ft, head West to CHILL climbing to 9 000 ft. All in all a nice flight !
  12. Fortunately the milky way is an independant texture which you can replace. I suggest using this one http://library.avsim.com/search.php?SearchTerm=milkyway_fsx_p3d.zip&CatID=root&Go=Search Which translates ingame to :
  13. The main limitations, as far as I remember, are the limited recording rate (1/8 instead of 1/32) and the lack of video rendering at a fixed fps.
  14. Nope, it's still the same old 1.331 FSX build that has always been working with P3D. Better than nothing, though.
  15. You say you fixed the path. Assuming you created an FSRecorder folder in your Modules folder. Did you correct this : FSRecorderRecorder\FSX.dll To FSRecorder\RecorderFSX.dll ? You could also drop the dll directly to your Modules folder and use this simple path : <Path>Modules\RecorderFSX.dll</Path>
