LOL. well.. there's a few things at work there. I had real-weather set, that also sets water.. which I forgot about. It had set the water to about 2.5' waves, but the surface looks smooth. And.. approach speed there was about 135, with a 10-13kt crosswind.. expecting to have to stick the landing for a short-field technique. I didnt' expect to make the landing, I expected to float in WIG a little further. weight was default-halfs, which usually puts low IGE WIG speed down as low as 105, which is the reason for the re-liftoff, due to planting sooner than later to get in the water for braking, in two to three footers ye cant see.

The SK is one that can take the waves, the hull length spans the wave peaks, but sticking the landing, getting tossed back up by waves, still at flight speed.. Anyway. Yes, I normally set the water to minimum or nil waves. You'd in theory only be doing to/ldgs behind breakwater barriers, or calmer water anyway. Mountain lakes rare to never have nearly 3' waves. barely whitecap 1's on a bad day.

:D

and the takeoff.. went all the way up to the far end of the lake to get a full length run at it. making the turn as the lake curves limits speed.. so that bend of the lake turn is at about 75-85.. and then lining up for the straight run down toward the docks...90's.. 100.. 105.. just barely skimming.. pullup, wallow the initial climb up through ground effect and then pitch over a little.. monitoring and moderating AOA.. and then up comes more flight speed.. 120..130.... 150.. with cruise speed through the mountains there at 210. I think in a couple of the takeoff views, you can see the 10-15kt crosswind take hold of her after takeoff

Yeah, the t/o was spectacular, almost VTOL at first. Yes, I forgot that real weather does that to you with waves. Try doing the same with a seamax, even at a lowly 50kts we're talking 1 massive bounce followed by 4 or 5 further gut-churning bounces before settling down in time to radio for hull repairs. P. S. I've just Acquired your aadx3600, love it, that has such a powerful climb! I have to upgrade my earplugs with those 3 engine though. I'm giving it a thorough video rinse and perm, so it won't be ready in the next few days. Simon

C74 Sea King out of Whistler

Postby kiofka » 03 Jan 2010 00:17

This is a beast to get off the ground but I finally got the speed up after about the third run.
Headwind of 9 kts. You'll see the flaps go down at the last second which helped a bit,
but you'll also see me lose altitude because of it. I managed to save it and pull out.
Anyway, good challenge. 2:50 video. Thanks for the music Chuck... ;)

Good one, yes a whale of a plane, I wonder what its ceiling is ( and I don't mean it's roof, I'm sure it's shagpile).

Hey CapnSully,
Nice video of the 3600... definitely one of my favorite aircraft. Sits at the very front of my hangar and I consider it one of Jason's finest. Glad to see you enjoy her as much as I do. Good luck on your visit with the Col in SL this afternoon.
See you around the terminal...

Lightning and Thunder?

Postby Steven Winslow » 04 Jan 2010 20:03

Okay, I've been flying X-Plane for a couple of years now and I have never seen lightning nor heard thunder, but in you video they are definitely present. How is your weather set up? And what computer are you using? I'll have to check my settings tonight when I get home. Great videos, by the way!

Good to meet u Herby :)

Yes, we had a good yack, but SL sucks for interactivity. Audio'll be nice one day.

Yes, that's a good plane, honoured with my hardest edit yet. About 30 mins of footage ruthlessly cut to a few mins!

Hi Steven, you made me revisit my settings.

Max precipitation and storm settings should do it. I've been testing the worth of Reallife '09 from the .org for cloud textures, and can confirm it definitely adds to the grey effect. That's what I used in the vid.

It is a bit of pot luck though - I just redid the same settings in a different location and the thunder was not as loud or close, so you may need to relaunch the location a few times to get the pretty spectacular weather I got in my vid, on my youtube channel ' id5556'.

I'm using an intel Core i7 920 slightly overclocked to 3.2ghz, NVidia gtx 275, only had it since July.

Thanks for enjoying my vids, the last one took a few hrs of editing.
