magic teleportation


But of what?I have no idea.

Can you test whether this gradually drifts out of alignment with Earth's rotation speed?


I believe I found that one - a reversed sign. At least I could see a drift in tracking waiting 800 seconds before, which was gone after I changed the sign,

It happened to me just one time on many tries.
I will check the log next time

Flying around ISS:

Look at those clouds!

The station seen through the COAS recticle.

Last sunlight seen through the overhead windows.

And, as we rotate around, the lights of Paris above - or below, dependent on how your coordinate system is arranged :)

Very nice colors,definitely what I prefer in that sim, SUNSET :)


A bit of RTLS test, always working nicely


SRB sep

Image



RTLS and dump, failure at 6000 ft/s,in the middle of the window

Image



A bit of work

Image



Reaching the coast again, at Mach 3 for a direct entry into the pattern

Image

Image


100 km to go


Image



And a nice Go Around to finish :mrgreen: ( forgot the Joystick, hard to pilot)

A 2 Engine Out test right after SRB Sep,

The dive into the atmosphere is crazy, very violent Nz during 2 EO blue

Image


Elevons saturation, quite entertaining.


I prefered to switch on a more classical TAL :)

I tried to let full Auto for TAEM, AP was a good boy, on the line :)

I tried to play with trajectory loft and shape, it works nice
MECO at 350 kfeet like I wanted :)


Image



I was playing with AOA for tutorial, Look how close are the values from official datas and what we have in game after LEO tools for dorbit burn with radial component
4200 Nm ish of REI, TIG 55 mn, and delta V around 150 ft ish.
So nice :)

You fly too much Shuttle when you....


... believe every aircraft needs the 17 deg glidepath. :oops:

Seriously, I've been trying to brush up my bush plane skills on the Twin Otter today and every time I ended up having a way too steep glidepath with throttle idle and flaps full out. Thankfully the Twin Otter takes a lot of this kind of crap.

But to my credit, I had two perfectly fine touchdowns so in a sense the Shuttle training did pay off...

Your probably not a "true" bush pilot if your not needing to use a 17 deg glidepath at some point in time.

Ahah indeed . Professional deformation

Just back from a RTLS.
Crashed the Shuttle while I was looking outside the window, not better
