I posted them some weeks ago in this topic, I also (finally) managed to make a video montage of my lopasses. It's only in first person, I still don't understand how to use the Instant Replay and Save Flight functions, but I hope you like it anyway.

For some reason screenshots and videos do some weird glitch on my latest flightgear build, where I get weird glitch flashing the screen (only in playback though) ;S im not sure why.. but it's more apparent in videos.. so I just took some screenshots until I can figure out why.. :(

Mon vol sur Paris :), I kind of did two passes, one over the Airport and then again over the Eiffel tower, and finally climbed back up over La defense. I tried to keep above ridiculously low flying limits.. but perhaps I'd still be arrested for doing that over the Eiffel tower.. If I ever planned to buy a 300million dollar aircraft :roll: .

I've had that problem too using the QuickTime screen recorder (FG 1.9.1)... It's very weird. ScreenFlow recordings don't have that problem, but well that program not cheap unfortunately. I don't really know any other screen recorders to advice using.

I would've recorded a video, but my screen recording software(Screenflow) wants me to pay $120 to renew the license. Not gonna happen...

So I paused the sim and took a pic instead.

The aircraft is a mere 0.46 meters from the ground. :o

Nice! That's really low, I wouldn't want to stand there... :P

Why did it want you to renew the license? By the way, an entry with watermark is still an entry :wink: But screenshots are fine too.

Whoops. :oops: Turns out the license renewal was $120 if you were a 1.x version user. I have 2.x, so I don't have to pay.

Updating right away.... :wink:

Looks like I misunderstood what you meant by a low pass. I thought it meant buzzing well known buildings or landmarks, like Liam did with the Eiffel Tower. So I recorded the TU-154b buzzing the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio (I didn't really get that close). Best watched in HD, Statto's custom scenery looks quite nice:
