Crashing school.

Postby lalegion » Thu Jan 17, 2019 8:24 pm

Hey Everyone!
My name is Captain HalconFalcon and I am a new user of FGFS. Started three weeks ago and learning everyday. I live in Stockholm and I'm used to take off from Arlanda airport.
Just wanted to say Hi and leave a video on my newly created channel. Right now featuring only this one (a fails landing compilation) but hope I will expand it soon.

Here is a link in case anyone want to take a look - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=equIlMRIz80

By the way, what do you guys use to record the screen? I'm on linux and at the moment using ffmpeg (command line) coding h264 with nvidia-codec.

Thanks a lot.
Captain HalconFalcon.

I personally use OBS (although I don't have NVENC, unfortunately).
There are free alternatives to every program you encounter. You just have to find them.

Hey Parnikkapore!
I didn't know about OBS, looks great! What's the impact on the performance?
In my case, using FFmpeg from command line have an impact on performance of around 40%, so my usual 60 to 65fps goes down to around 35 (more or less).

Very nicely edited. Also, looks very familiar (to be read as: Been there done that :wink: ).

If you have not done that already, look up primary and secondary effects of elevator and throttle. It might help a bit. It took me way too long to notice the slightly high approach speed (I guess I am getting a bit rusty).

For most GA aircraft, the low end of the airspeed indicator's white arc* should be about right on final approach.

Although the right place to pick up the "V-speeds" (perm) is placards and the flight manual, EUROCONTROL's Aircraft Performance Database (Cessna 172 entry) can be of great help when trying out new aircraft.

* The white arc represents the span between the minimum and maximum airspeed with flaps extended. Keep in mind that you still lose lift in a hard bank though.

Great tips Johan G!

Thank you very much and sorry for the delay but I've been working a lot and couldn't touch FG or pay attention to the forum. I corrected mostly my landings, as you suggested, by taking better care of my approaching and vertical speed.

Thanks again!

I use OBS also (Ubuntu 18.04). I have four displays on my FG computer. Three are FG, and the 4th is OBS.
I can start and stop recording while flying, and select which of the displays I am recording.
Shallow approach angle, low airspeed, and throttled back is a recipe for a crash, especially if using real-world and advanced weather.
I learn more from my crashes than flying.

Nice video, very funny in a sad sort of, painful way.
You know, from my personal experience of landing a billion times in the sim, my perception is almost every one of those attempts could have been successful by a better flare at the end and bleeding off the speed and angle of your ATTACK of the runway, ha! Sometimes to the point of hearing the stall indicator at touchdown.
Very entertaining and oh so familiar from my own memories. :lol:

A great resource for new or rusty pilots (or anyone else) that want to go really in-depth is the FAA Airplane Flying Handbook. For landings Chapter 8: Approaches and Landings (23,6 MB PDF file) is very likely a good read.
