  1. Happy B-day Norby! Glad to see some people are starting to transfer/start using Condor with me as well
  2. i think M$ is way behind in the soaring end still, I played a tow at oshkosh and it was pretty cruddy, and with Condors Patch 9 coming out soon and a Condor V2 on the horizon, id rather just see more sceneries for condor (or a worldwide scenery like MS)
  3. When i flew a tow (behind the maule) @ oshkosh, it was pretty crappy (with wings bent down) and the rope was messed up (looked like it was looping behind the wing and always flailing around in the wind like it wasnt even hooked up), and towing at 80-90kts :[
  4. Hmmm, I wonder if in the mulit sessions, if a user can tow another user :], could make for some fun formation aerobatics
  5. Ya all very good points, but, it will just make our virtual world all the more realistic with aerotow (dont really need the thermals) (And yes i did get a little to excited... and need to win the lottery :vv: lol)
  6. found a little more from AVSIM :yahoo: New Features MS Flight sim has always included a sailplane. Have you ever noticed that there wasn’t a towplane to go along with the sailplane? There is now. The dynamics of towing an aircraft aloft isn’t accomplished with a towrope made of steel. The rope moves accordingly with taught and slack periods as the two planes work in tandem to get aloft.
  7. taken from an article on simflight.com on FSX - There is also NO WAY yet that we can comment on some of the things.. like performance, DX10, and some other issues. What CAN we tell you? Here are some new features: - tow planes for the gliders, and realistic thermals - wild animals running around the African plains and elsewhere - TWO versions of FSX, and a trial option - 'missions' to add a 'game' element - Tower Control - guide other on-line players - SDK included in the (pro) product - Share a cockpit - moving traffic on the roads - (a lot more) animations on the airports - AI shipping - updated audio system (mix with speakers AND headset) YES!!!!!!!!!!!! and with thier new multi engine, we can share flights :], sure home some of these will work in FSX :] whole article here = http://www.eaglesoftdg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1147

    Mifflin Ridge Run

    Ohhh So thats where my 1:22 time came from I guess lunch can take a bunch of time. Where can I get the "NOpause" thingy? Thanks!
  9. Just made it around for the first time! 1:22:01 in the ASW-28 Il try the Duo Next and then maybe the Blanik as I have added the US gauges and L-NAV systems to to make an officaial race with it.
  10. This is a hard one! Three time now I have landed out (sucsessfully)! All going down the tubes after the first turnpoit for me. I always dive down the ridge on the northern side of the valley that works for a few miles, then I scratch for thermals and land on a road or that little strip back there. Anyone want to try and set up a multi session?
  11. Ill be on a server after 7:00 PM CDT (-6 UTC I think) till I get tired. Hope to see someone to race with!
  12. darn READMEs Thanks Kris, and may the wind be with you!
  13. So the task is what comes up in the viewer when you select your files and polars. 35-9-6-40 is what I have for a task
  14. Has the task been relesed yet? And ill be trying it in the new 1-26 if anyone else wnats to declare with me
  15. WOW!!! I LOVE IT Was all of the real schweizer characteristics, especially in stalls and spoiler operation. I had it up for an hour and half on the mindin ridge and im gonna have to fly this one in the race to Ill have repaints soon! Its all ways more fun doing metal and fabric repaints than fiberglass cause' you can use all colors!
  16. I have the DVD but not the ability to copy it. Its great! I still cant get to the FTP page!?! Is there any way someone can post the ridge files for the CCS? Thanks a bunch
  17. How do we get the ridge file? I cant find any FTp server. Can someone tell me how to install it to? Thanks!
  18. Cool! Ive always loved mifflen. Thats where that "A fine week of soaring" was filmed.
  19. GEEEEzzzzzzzzzzzz! Only won in the 28 by 23 SECONDS. THAT was close Name / SOAR ID # Time Knots/hr Trace Lewis #1026 0:46:01 53.7 Marcin May #890 0:46:24 53.2 Thanks Don and Eric for this whole race!
  20. Uhh, wow thanks! (for the rootbeer ) Did'nt really expect to do this good! Cant't wait until the next one!
  21. LOK WHAT I FOUND!!! Turns out earlier this year a local glider pilot gave a talk on the sequatchie soaring!! See it here in the newsletter! Sequatchie
  22. Thanks! I was jumping up and down and smilling for a while I had VERY good luck with the thermals had two over 5 knots and got to 4500 and 4800 in 2 thermals. Final glider from Tp2 around to finnish. Last leg was 112.3 average kts
  23. I can't do Sunday but anytime today before 2200Z is good for me. And weekdays after 2100Z (school)
  24. Just flew it in the ASW-28 and made it around! 50 minutes with an average speed of 48.6 kts Don, please let me know when you get the files. Anyone want to get together sometime for a trip around the course together?
