Took some screens of the Pterosaur.. possibly useful for wikipedia page or just the fg wiki as it's one of the most striking examples of flight.

Hawaii/Island of Kauai

Image

I've been waiting for someone to post a shot with Pterosaur since the weeping walls waterfalls near PHLI were added :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Image

Image

Image

Every shot & angle in any weather looks beautiful around here. It's a very poignant craft to fly as well

Ran into two complications:

- The weeping wall waterfalls have been knocked out a bit by the recent terrain update on terrasync. Coords: lat=22.07150467, lon=-159.4984764
- The JSBSim seems to now complain about a couple of missing operands or something with Pterosaur - but it still loads. Retracting wings by holding down "W" seems to have a broken animation.

The trick is that rainbows form a 40 degree circle around the point opposite the sun (anti-solar point). :mrgreen: If the time of day places the camera in between the rain volume and the sun, a rainbow is caught every time. Picking a view, and then trying a few re-rolls of live/custom weather or scenarios works - or flying around to put the craft between the sun & rain. Generally just having a low-ish sun will give plenty of bows during a flight - and clouds & rain are more likely with METARs as the day progresses.

Cool!

Not sure why the weeping wall got lost, at some point I have to investigate, but I find manually comparing placement positions rather tedious... (I have a working version on my harddisk though...)

I've definitely never implemented a wing-fold animation for the Pterosaur, only for the Dragon - so that might be an issue...

KSZT (Sandpoint, Idaho) to CBR2 (Kaslo, BC) in a glider.

Most of the flight was easy, it was just at the start where you have a long run across a valley with no lift after launch.

A little lower than I wanted at this point:

Turning downwind at Kaslo:

Ideal touchdown at Stord :

Runway is damned short, only 1460 meters. No room for mistake.
