THAT's A SIM VID??!!! Looks pretty REAL to me? Are you SURE??? The text for
the vid on his site I THINK meant that can anyone be THAT good EVEN just
USING a simulator??? If that's a sim vid then I REALLY need to go check out
the new sim programs!!!!

Re: See a BIG fixed wing FLYING like a HELI!!!

It was pretty awesome flying -- sim or not. I think it is a video of a real
RC plane though. I noticed in one point near the beginning of the vid that
the camera went out of focus. That wouldn't happen in a sim. I did notice
something a sim does sometimes like Realflight, if you have it set to keep
the ground in view it will lose sight of the plane when you go high enough.
That happened in the vid, but that could be because the camera was on a
tripod at he field. I think the quality is suffering because I noticed what
looks like a TV/monitor screen border. Maybe this file was recorded off of a
video screen with a cam. I'm not sure really, but it was some cool flying I
think.

It will in XTR. Take it from one who knows (I've got to find out who is is
yet, but still) it wasn't real, it WAS a si recording.

No camera, just a "camera". Sims HAVE come on a bit y'know:-)

I believed it until I've seen the hangar in the background. It is
labeled "Winzeln-Schramberg"
and this location is well known from that very special flight
simulator. This is the "real"
location: http://www.lsv-schwarzwald.de/html/der_flugplatz.html Here is
a great screenshot
from the Aerofly-page: http://www.aerofly.com/ssh-14-lg.jpg While in
the video at some
closeups you can see it's not real (if you're searching for it), this
shot is really awesome.

Re: See a BIG fixed wing FLYING like a HELI!!!

Now that I see these pix I wish I hadn't already spent my money on my G3
simulator. I just bought it because I thought I needed to train a little
before I took either my old -- I mean old -- Gmp Cobra out or the old EP
Concept. The Cobra's motor needs work so I have hovered the EP a few times
and I am glad I had the sim to practice with first.

I hope you people remember I said it was an RC aircraft but I thought it was
not a sim. I didn't think it was a full scale airplane or airport. No way
would that type a full scale aircraft do some of those stunts or any plane
that I know about.

G3 will do exactly the same as XTR will and that's give you a fighting
chance. Granted XTR looks better, but G3 has good enough physics to do what
it says on the tin.

We knew that.

I didn't think it was a full scale airplane or airport.

Just as well, or I'd have to "send the boys round" with a lesson

No way

Check out the guys flying in the Red Bull Airrace series. They've almost got
the hover (prop hanging) sorted out, but they'll never be able to do what
the models can do, purely because of the power to weight disadvantage they
suffer from and the size/efficiency of the props.
