  1. Aerobask's great freeware Robin, have not flown one of these in a sim since a Robin I flew in MSFS. Also the Spad, aircraft of Eddie Rickenbackers Hat in the Ring squadron, greatest American Ace in WW1 who remembers the Allies paying tribute to the Red Baron and dropping wreaths in the age of air chivalry, also practiced by some German fliers in WW2, described in the book by TD Calnan, survivor of WWII's POW camps and Colditz castle. Last is the Swift Motorglider out of Marana Arizona near Tuscon. A real Swift was based there that I was invited to purchase but I could not find a hangar to rent anywhere within 100 miles of my home in Phoenix. Last, we had a foot of snow in the Phoenix Metro area in Scottsdale, out by 156th street not too far from Fountain Hills. I got caught in a slight snow shower in west Phoenix walking home from the store tonight, it did not last long so the snow could not stick, but it was beautiful to look up and see the flakes falling, like an urban fairyland. I used to work for PF Changs and JDA Software as a QA specialist and automation lead not far from there, testing and helping design client server and web based software for PC's, Cells and Tablets, and Apple hardware as well.

  2. The one type of air transportation I have never flown in....
  3. Have my autogen photoscenery overlays enabled for these screenshots of this nice freeware taildragger Ultralight out of Glendale AZ... John
  4. My latest Ortho4XP rendering, the entire Hawaiian Island chain. When I took my wife and daughter there for my daughter's thirteenth birthday in 2012, we stayed at the wonderful Hilton Hawaiian Village for several reasons--it has the best beach in Oahu, many nice places to swim, a great tropical vibe, easy bus access to Pearl Harbor, and a nice fireworks show. Plus we went on the sub ride, my first and only time in a real sub, although the water was a bit hazy. We did see many tropical fish but my greatest underwater experience was snorkeling in Guam's lagoon in 1992. I was surrounded by thousands of fish in all colors. If you ever go snorkeling in the ocean, the trick is to wait until the tide is coming in, so you can swim against the current or parallel to it. You use underwater sailing techniques. Then when you feel you've had enough, you swim back and forth parallel to the current, and when you want to go back in, you simply coast back to the shore covering the bottom at four to five knots with no effort at all. I applied the same techniques when I flew in wind, I would fly out against the wind and when I had enough, I'd simply turn around, fly with the wind, and enter the pattern, then on landing I could land straight into the wind and my microlight or trike would touch down with a groundspeed much lower than its stall speed, making for easy on the brakes stopping or in the case of my trike, I'd just drag my feet like Fred Flintstone. John P.S. Note that I have enabled my overlay scenery so I can have autogen over my Ortho scenery, something not easy to do in P3DV4.4. I like Xplane11's autogen over photo scenery when over open country.
  5. One of these days I will be back to P3D4.4, lol, but I am still enjoying the Microlight collection I purchased last month. This Gyro flies exactly as a gyro does. To take off first you engage the clutch to prerotate the blades, then you disengage the clutch once the blades are up to speed for a smooth, slow, rolling takeoff. On this flight, between Casa Grande AZ (former home of the Copperstate Airshow now held in Buckeye AZ) and Maricopa AZ a short hop away, I chose to land dead stick in Maricopa to see if it can be done, like a real gyro, using autorotation. The answer is yes, and one can touch down at 5-10 mph if one does the final right, as I did on this flight. Just like a real Gyro it handles chop very well. If you like Xplane11 whether with photo scenery or full autogen, and like short hops or an hour's flight, this is an enjoyable hand flyer which can fly hands off once trimmed. Thanks to the forum member that posted this aircraft and recommended it. John
