Clearview models


Does anyone know where I can find other models made for clearview? I've got most of the ones from the site attached to Clearviews website and wanted to know if there were more on any other sites. I appreciate any help.

Nice hovers! Now if only I can get good enough to fly like that, even on the sims. The only real aerobatics that I got enough gaul to pull off is your average loop and roll. But still nice hovers, and the plane is cool too.

Thanks! I am a little rusty. I like the way it hovers in CV. It is about the same like my real planes, so it does not inspire undeserved confidence.

Hey Stefan, I like the new Yak! It flies great, does some really weird stuff when I try a flat spin. I'd love to show you the recording I did but I don't know how to export it to a video file.

You can record the flight in ClearView and then send me the record file (it will be in the records folder). To get into flat spin, you need to be nose up with no or little vertical speed and then apply some throttle and full rudder, it will start folling in flat spin.

Thanks,
Stefan

HB FP and CP2?


Hi Stefan,

would it be possible to modify the Blade CPPro to use the HB FP canopy?

It's much easier to see against the background and gives a clue as to orientation (nose in it's all white and tail in it's darker due to the frame, servos etc.) and we'd then have a HB CP2 (more or less)

BTW, IMHO the new HB FP flies really well and the "always close" view is just right, it's a much better idea than a model following view, thanks

I am a simulator newbie and was wondering what is the difference between those two views.

I guess when I saw "Always Close" I was thinking of something that would be like following the model around.

Stefan has assured me that the "Always Close" option is working correctly so I am pretty sure the problem is with my perception and understanding.

Thanks.

Dale.

For instance, in FMS you can make the camera "fly" always behind the model.

Can be useful if you're a complete newbie to the transmitter sticks, it's a bit like following the cars in GranTurismo or whatever, you see the result of your input right in front of you and the orientation is always correct. Thus you get a feel for what each stick does and it's effect on the aircraft.

ClearView's "Always Close" keeps the viewer in the same spot, as you would be when flying a model, but zooms in quite close so that it's harder to lose orientation but still trains your stick fingers "muscle memory" when the model is "nose" or "side in".

(I personally think that your brain plays a perception trick when you're concentrating on flying a model and "zooms in" on the model so that the perspective is similar to the "Always Close" view - no doubt others may disagree )

I am flying a BCX in the Gym and it doesn't seem to keep it zoomed in.

I fly the heli away from me towards a wall and it just gets smaller and smaller.

Not sure if I am doing something wrong or not put with the keyboard zoom in/out and the model custom settings I surely have enough options.

Now to quit obsessing over the software and get on with the practice.
