Extreme Helicopter Landing Challenge

Postby FighterAce » Sat Mar 25, 2017 2:52 pm

The rules of this challenge are simple: take off in any helicopter within FlightGear, and land at an extreme location, (mountain, rooftop, ATC tower, etc.) take a screenshot or video of your landing, and then post it to this forum topic. Enjoy! :D

Does it still qualify if I did it a while ago? Sorry for the terrible framerate when I turned and got all the buildings in view, it was before I got my new box.

Yes chriscalef, anything counts as long as it is yours and it is a helicopter in FlightGear.

Carriers are a big easy target.

Try something smaller.

Heh - can Amelia participate in this as well?

(no, that's not me flying, that's my very capable AI copilot)

She can land the Alouette on a dime when I look outside to direct her - in tests, we've placed the gear with 10 cm precision on the helipad.
