STUNT Challenge (finished): Belly Landings

Postby Oscar » Fri Jun 17, 2011 2:18 pm

Last week challenge's winner: Someguy, for his great heli skills!

New Challenge:
Belly Landing!

Any landing with at least one wheel missing is counted as a valid submission :wink:

And sorry but I have to do this for YouTube licensing: by submitting videos or images, you allow me to use a few seconds of it in a future Stunt Friday video.

You can use YAsim aircraft, too... ...though then, you're restricted to screenshots and videos right before the landing...
Look for "B-BIRD" "N127KY" or "AVA0004" -that's me.

Despite having over 1700 posts here, I am not even close to being the most skilled guy here... I'm just words and bad drawing, not experience. :P

Or add some hidden gears in the FDM right on the belly... hold on, I've said too much. :mrgreen:

The engine is the heart of an aeroplane, but the pilot is its soul.

Sigh... Seems I'm having trouble finding the time to plan something out. And even if I do manage a good one, and get it recorded, it's gonna take 3 hours just for me to upload it to YouTube. Maybe I'll just wait until I'm back in university, where I can upload the same video in just 10 seconds. Man, I wish I could afford decent Internet like that.

EDIT: Alright. I now have two videos to upload now. One is for something else, but I made sure to get one for the stunt challenge, since I got bored. I am very happy with how my belly landing turned out. I can't remember the last time I've done anything like that, but I managed very well considering I managed to not trigger crash detection on my first try. This time, I'll be sure to start the upload some time tonight right before I go to bed. You guys gotta see this one. You'll be in for a wild ride 8)

And just another note. I'm only going to upload the raw footage. No funny stuff, guaranteed!

EDIT2: Had an error with the upload. I'll try again tonight.
