FSX acceleration pack

Ok i am officially hooked to FSX now...

Now, I will sign my name under it. it's 10 times better than FS9.

Better flight dynamics. better Sim functionality.

Got the acceleration pack too.. this is just amazing.

I will post up couple of nice videos soon..

These missions in FSX are really thrilling and take some real skills to complete...

One engine, no gyro approach in IMC. Think it's easy? try it .



Approach to aircraft carrier in F16 in IMC with failed navigation instruments.... all you have your wing man guiding you.

Air races missions are absolutely amazing...


Engine failure over mountains and you gotta glide in.


Helicopter missions are absolutely stunning and take some flying skills. Guess what... I finally learned to hover.


and a lot more...

oh and I finally learned to fly damn gliders (though still the idea of cross countries seems to be crazy).

I figured that it's real when i crashed while doing VOR approach to El Monte... an area that I know very well. One reason its real is that the weather and visibility is modeled much better.... Mark maybe we should do an online race together?

We have just moved upto X, as I have a shiny new computer that will handle it, I got fed up of being kicked off my computer, the other half has just gone out and bought himself an all singing all dancing system, the hard drive is split, so one half runs XP and FS9, the other runs Vista and FSX. So I get my computer back, but I seem to have acquired a joystick and headset lol.

He's actually a beta tester for one of the scenery people, and they have just been doing a load of testing for the new Extreme airports/fields for the UK. From what I have seen, they look good!

The trick with cross-countries in the glider is to get a lot of altitude. If you're patient and in the right terrain, you can easily gain several thousand feet in a good thermal. My own record is just over an hour and a half in the glider; unfortunately I don't remember which airport it was out of as I had a system crash about a week later and lost the information in FSX's pilot log.

My problem with the glider is snapping the tow rope. Seems like I've got about a 50% chance of snapping the rope before I'm at an altitude I like.

I am a bush flying fan...in fact finally get to go up to Juneau for real in a few days.

The DHC-6's Twotter's office is where I like to spend most of my time.

I just wish someone would make more missions in Alaska for FSX. My computer is old--Athlon 3500+ single core with 2 gig, plus a sapphire radeon 1950 Pro card, but it runs FSX surprisingly well, especially so once Acceleration came out--seems like they optimized some of the graphics. Most of the time I get in the 20+ fps range while at altitude, and 10-15 down low.
