Autopilot flight from Phuket to Krabi today. Had done this quite a couple of times, but what about (almost) autoland on a Cat 1 ILS?

Image
In the cruise. We're pretty low in this flight so we can see the beautiful landscape.

Parking completed, on the apron.

Came across a rather beautiful combination of clouds and lighting during a training flight!

Hi all,

Two weeks ago, I had no idea FlightGear FS even existed. ;o

Today, I managed to get the Robinson R22 followed by a few other helicopters in the air and back down (edit: some got back down but not the R22!) relatively gently (auto pedals off) with keyboard and mouse. I do have to provide credit to XP11 (Linux) and XP10 (Android) with its flight school helicopter (S-76) to allow marked progress of late.

It was most fascinating to try the different helicopters in fgfs (the R44 is *much* more stable than its smaller sibling at the moment!) and I also discovered just a tiny bit of some of the Chinook's unique (strange?) features. After a couple of attempts then some quick reading to figure out why I was struggling to gain real altitude, I got it to 16,000 feet, which coincided with some amazing sunset light. The scene surprised me and had I known it was to occur, I would have tweaked my graphics settings up for the screenshots!

I'm planning to buy a Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS (just the joystick for now) as well as XP11, but I'm pretty sure I'll still continue to put time into FlightGear - it's simply exceeded expectations and I know there's more to discover.
