I only crashed when I changed course a little (banked).
Of course it was autopilot.
Lowest agl: 2 feet.

On a skill level between zero and 0.1, how much do you reckon is required to fly like that on autopilot? :lol:

@Warty, because my joystick is semi-defective, so if I tried that manually I'd be in the drink in seconds.
@Martien, yes it is.

Today I did a short flight with the Cub in the northeast region of Brazil, a desert-like place known as the caatinga. Here is a screenshot:

there are some who have... i watched a FGUK video of one pilot running the grand canyon with a mouse... i cannot do it and i don't have a joystick, either... not a ""modern"" one with USB anyway... and my work space only has a small 8x6 area for my mouse... no way to try to fly with that little room... keyboard all the way! keyboard or die! [the ultimate challenge] [[anyone can use a joystick or mouse]]

"Why not?" said Gurder.

Hehe. When I'm FGing on my laptop, I use a trackpad built into the machine itself. 15 inch Mackbook. :D

yeah, them little track pads are very touchy... i only use the one on my winwhatever laptop when i'm on the road and don't feel like plugging in the rodent... for most normal operations the pad is just fine but it was never thought to try to use if for gaming... i can just see someone trying to play doom, heretic, hexen or similar 1st person games with one ;)

Ordinarily, two is a company, three is a crowd.

When it comes to large aircraft...

ANYTHING'S A CROWD!

Hehe,

Just reinstalled the older version of TJNC and St. Barts/Princess Julianna terrain and airports. Forgot how much of a challenge Saba is with 20 knot crosswind. And real weather did a few wind direction changes while landing at St. Barts. I was having to throttle up while suddenly loosing airspeed just a few hundred meters from the 'hump' at St. Barts. :shock:

Trying out the new LOD settings recommended by wkitty42. Works great. Refueling the Vigilante behind a KA-6 over Kaneohe MCAS.
