  1. Good Day! I'm new to the SIM world and I'm looking for a person or group of people who are familiar with flying rotary winged aircraft to share a cockpit and chat. I'm a former Marine aviator from the CH-53E Super Stallion flight community and have recently purchased an aircraft from Nemeth Designs. If you or anyone you know would like to share this incredibly realistic aircraft with me simply let me know. P.S. This is not a recruiting gimmick to join a Virtual Airline. Thanks, -Benjamin Forbus
  2. Happy Birthday, Brett! And, to celebrate, I flew your Pinnacle Mission - Great Stuff! Here we are delivering our final package: When, suddenly, we have an emergency call-out: To a highway accident in the hills: Get the injured to hospital - Pronto! And return to base (I won't mention the rogue bear!): And a successful end to an exciting mission: Thanks, Brett - great to try that one again. By the way, it's in our Hangar Library, here: http://forum.mutleyshangar.com/index.php/files/file/907-the-pinnacle/ Cheers - Dai.
  3. ATWC SiX Leg 04 "You're always bl**dy late, Doc, what was it this time?" Sam made me feel welcome, as usual: "Missed the connection at EGPE, sorry, mate!" "Well, you're here now, make yourself useful and see that the jeep is stowed securely - the engines sound good, don't they? They're both reconditioned - almost new..." Back in the cockpit, Sam was setting the NAV channels. He chivvied the tower into giving us clearance: "Why the b*gg*rs always want us to taxi to the active and not just take off from the apron beats me - every time..." I completed the checklist and gave the collectiv
  4. Here's a quick "First Impressions" video of Earth Simulations' latest offering, North West Scotland 30 cm Professional Photo-scenery. It's a short helicopter flight up the ridge to Blaven (Blà Bheinn) onthe Isleof Skye: More to come - let me have any comments, Thanks! Cheers - Dai.
  5. Several changes afoot around my various Airhauler operations. It all started with a trial of ORBx based products via Misha Cajic's "NA-Airstrips-Vol1" airstrips which was on sale 1/2 off recently. It's a wonderful product, and made me realize how much I missed trees and buildings...autogen and such that is missing in MSE scenery. I really hope he is working hard on Vol.2 as I will definitely be a customer. Kudos again. I decided that the perfect airplane for hauling cargos to those challenging fields was not actually an airplane... My Virtavia Ch-47 at the 98TE Glide/Hilltop field. No
  6. Here's a short video of an evening flight around Portoferraio on the lovely Isla d' Elba: Cheers - Dai.
  7. I got a real bargain from Just Flight, last week - their Combat Helicopter Pack: Huey plus Chinook, both from the Nemeth stable (with some help from Milviz}. Thought you might enjoy my experiences with the Huey - straight out of the box - Yep, just as it happened (with some commentary added during editing). Hope you enjoy the video: Comments welcome! (Not another helicopter vid! - Ed) Cheers - Dai.
  8. I've just heard from Lee Mills, the general manager of Weston's Helicopter Museum, that they are planning the 5th Weston Flight Sim Show for Sat/Sun 17/18 May 2014: I confirmed that some of the mob from Mutley's would be turning up - again. Funnily enough, he seemed quite pleased! Now, I'm not too sure whether the format of the Weston show will be the same as previous years and there may be some changes to the contributing devs and sim groups. I am a bit biased, being a bit of a rotor-head (A BIT?!? - Ed), but the Helicopter Museum is a brilliant place for a show, and we've had a
  9. Nemeth Design would like to know which helicopter model to develop next. Here's a list of options: 1. Bell 429 2. Eurocopter BK117 3. Agusta Westland AW-139 4. Sikorski S76C++ 5. Sikorski 92 Interested in helping them choose? Then, pop along here: http://aussiex.org/forum/index.php?/topic/19360-participate-in-our-poll-to-decide-the-next-aircraft-in-development/ Cheers - Dai.
  10. Everything except their latest offering - the EC-130 - is available for download at $9.99. Cheers - Dai.
  11. It's back to basics with FSX - how well does the flight simulator replicate the Translational Lift Effect? To find out, I took the default Bell 206B for a short flight at Missoula airport, home to Hovercontrol. Lifting off into Ground Effect I found that I could ascend, manoeuvre and descend back to the helipad without moving the Collective - just using the Cyclic. I had no idea that FSX's helicopter flight dynamics replicated Translational Effect so well. Have a go yourself - you will be surprised - that's if you didn't know already, of course! Hope you enjoy the video: Let me know how
  12. I thought I'd try out the latest helicopter offering from DCS World - the UH-1H "Huey". Here's one of my first attempts at landing the Huey after watching the DCS in-game demo. I found the flight dynamics quite challenging - the DCS Huey isn't the easiest helicopter model to fly. Overall, I found it quite realistic and very entertaining - I hope you enjoy my first impressions. Cheers - Dai.
  13. Here's a screenshot from the latest Sheikh Adventure: He's in New York - and he's making trouble - Again! He needs you to get him out of a tight spot... The latest 'Sheikh Mission' can be found in the Download section - Good Luck! And post some screenshots, if you can. Thanks. Cheers - Dai.
  14. Just a quick video of my first impressions of the Nemeth Designs Hind helicopter for FSX. Probably the most famous - and, possibly, infamous - helicopter of the Cold War, the Hind has been around since the mid 70's and is still in use today. Nemeth have come up with a really good looking model - see what you think: And watch out for the up-coming Review... Cheers - Dai.
  15. Some quite decent flying skills here: Now you know where the Christmas tress come from! Cheers - Dai.
  16. This is my first FSX mission for the OrbX Pacific North West (PNW) scenery add-on. It's a Pilot for Hire Helicopter Mission, in which you take some VIP sightseers on a short helicopter tour of the Cascade Locks area, down the Columbia River to the Bonneville Dam. During the tour, an emergency crops up and you are asked to help out. The mission uses the default Bell 206B, but you can change to an alternative rotor-craft by ticking the "Enable changes in selected Mission" box should you wish.. If you have any problems or queries, please let me know - screen shots would be good! Thank
  17. Here's an interesting development from Agusta-Westland - Half Plane/Half Helicopter: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-22965734 Leans towards an Osprey, perhaps, but quite novel, eh? CHeers - Dai.
  18. Well, it was a great day so, for those of you who couldn't get there, here's a short video: https://vimeo.com/66773936 See you next year? Cheers - Dai.
  19. Here's how they do it in Russia - forget Health and Safety: Cheers - Dai.
  20. Here's your chance to try out the Burj Al Arab Hotel helipad approach which I featured in a video, recently. The helipad is 720 above the sea, which washes around the base of this stylistic 7-star luxury hotel, south west of Dubai City This is what the approach looks like: Check the mission out - it's in the Forum's Download section here: Hope you enjoy the mission - please let me know how you get on - Thanks! Cheers - Dai.
  21. Long time since using Air Hauler - too much going on, but... I remember using helicopters in AH and having to land on the numbers - i.e. touch-down on a runway and not the ramp or helipad. I guess this is still the case? Other than default (M.S. generated) helipads - which are few and far between outside major international airports - will AH handle helipads that I insert as Add-On scenery? If you could point me to the right information I'd be most grateful - Thanks! Cheers - Dai.
  22. Here's another challenging approach - the helipad atop the Burj Al Arab hotel in Dubai. Here it is in FSX: Looks like a nice place to stay... Cheers - Dai.
  23. A short video featuring the Needles Lighthouse scenery from Earth Simulations (free-ware - Thanks, Darren!) and the Dodo-Sim Bell 206 - my favourite rotorcraft: http://vimeo.com/44579890 I'm afraid the music's a bit retro - but that's me, I guess... Enjoy! Cheers - Dai.
  24. Now then, here's something that's not easy to explain: I've noticed that when approaching helipads on top of buildings and light-houses, you sometimes get bits of the scenery object apparently 'poking through' into the virtual cockpit. Rather than try to explain, I made the following video, containing 4 clips for vertical and horizontal movements at Wolf Rock light-house (Earth SImulations) and a helipad tower (Finney Air). What do you think? http://vimeo.com/45087816 If you find similar problems then I'd be really grateful if you could post a description. And, if you think you have the answ
  25. Some screen shots from the FSX Oil-Rig Shuttle (default) Mission using the MS Bell 206B. This Mission has some spectacular animations as the oil-rig explodes - a very exciting one which will keep you on your toes... Here we are, mid way through the Mission, approaching the oil-rig after picking the 2nd crew member: The last man is on the gantry - he's got to be rescued... ... before the rig blows up: And the crew taken safely back to Rotterdam: Maybe I'll make another video (Aarghhh! No, spare us, Please!! - Ed) Cheers - Dai.
