Chunk's P3D Screenshots

Recommended Posts

It is nice that everything is automated in the DA62. The way it’s coded in P3D, you actually have to disable the mixture and propeller axis’. Also, the G1000 seems to be completely modeled, and it’s not an FPS hog at all, more like a default plane. I’m impressed, but again, I’ll probably fly other stuff more often.

That being said, here’s my favorite, the A2A V-Tail, from Redding to Blue Canyon.

A cold trek from Tacoma Narrows (KTIW) to Orcas Island (KORS). KTIW is a stone's throw from Casa Del Chunk, and I hope ORBX will give it the full airport treatment one day. In the A2A V-Tail, and I used the RNAV 34 approach with the help of the GTN 750. Enjoy!

Thanks Griph! I have to agree, they nailed the “look” of Southern California.

A decently long cross-country from Tacoma Narrows (KTIW) to Glacier Park Intl. (KGPI). It went by in a flash in the Turbine Duke as I was showing 318 kts along the ground, at 23,000 feet. Good lord this baby cooks!!! The dual GTN 750's guided me through the muck for an LNAV approach to runway 02. Enjoy.

Thanks Sandy! I’d love to squirrel away some time to coordinate a group P3D flight.

So...I wanted to do a cross-country from the old homestead to the new, and I used the V-Tail to do it. Made it a two day trip because I was just too tired last night. :wink:

Waiting to go at KSQL (San Carlos)

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D658.jpg[/img]

Holding short.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D659.jpg[/img]

A dawn departure is a beautiful thing.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D660.jpg[/img]

Looking south towards San Jose, and you can see the runway lights from Moffett Field at the low right.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D661.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D662.jpg[/img]

Sunrise over the City by the Bay.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D663.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D664.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D665.jpg[/img]

There's Redding (KRDD)...one of my favorite ORBX add-ons.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D666.jpg[/img]

And there's the Sundial Bridge out of the pilot storm window.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D667.jpg[/img]

Crossing Lake Shasta, which looks fuller here than in real life at the moment.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D668.jpg[/img]

And there's Mt. Shasta in the distance.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D669.jpg[/img]

The mountain and Black Butte inching ever so close.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D670.jpg[/img]

They're almost as pretty as they are in person.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D671.jpg[/img]

I had planned this to be done as one flight, but like I said, I was getting tired. So I found Rogue Valley International - Medford Airport (KMFR) in the GTN 750 and dialed in my approach to call it a day.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D672.jpg[/img]

Parked and chocked at KMFR, we'll finish this flight tomorrow.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D673.jpg[/img]

Part 2 on the way...

Very nice. Love those morning shots by the bay. Interesting to compare Mt. Shasta with the shots I took in XP.

You do love you that V-tail, don't you!

Part 2 - From Rogue Valley International - Medford Airport (KMFR) to Tacoma Narrows (KTIW)

Holding short at the KMFR active. It's going to be an IFR day.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D674.jpg[/img]

Up at 6500', and out of the muck.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D675.jpg[/img]

However, the turbulence is going to make me lose the chicken fried steak from this morning...

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D676.jpg[/img]

And up to 9500', above a blanket of white, and no bumping around.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D677.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D678.jpg[/img]

There are a few breaks in the clouds as we head north through Oregon.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D679.jpg[/img]

The sun, the moon, and the star of the show. :wink:

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D680.jpg[/img]

It finally clears up a little, and we're directly over downtown Portland...I know Dub is somewhere nearby.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D681.jpg[/img]

The Columbia River in all of its majesty.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D682.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D683.jpg[/img]

There's a sight I'll never tire of looking at, Mt. Rainier.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D684.jpg[/img]

And you can barely make out Mt. St. Helens, covered in clouds.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D685.jpg[/img]

Descending back into the muck. I'll check in on the other side.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D686.jpg[/img]

Out of it and headed towards Vashon Island.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D687.jpg[/img]

There's Gig Harbor. I think I can see my house from here.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D688.jpg[/img]

The Port of Tacoma off to our left.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D689.jpg[/img]

On final at KTIW.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D690.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D691.jpg[/img]

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D692.jpg[/img]

Finally parked and chocked up. Time for a beer, or four or five, at the Hub airport restaurant.

[img]http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/Chunk/P3D693.jpg[/img]

Thanks for flying along with me!

Thanks Phil! I can't get enough of the V-Tail; I'm making it a life goal to own and operate one before I die!

So, Gig Harbor is where Tacoma Narrows Airport (KTIW) is located, and there are a couple of guys that have one of the larger hangars, and they also own a killer collection of aircraft.

It's called the Point Fosdick Antique Airplane Hangar...check it out [url=https://www.pfhangar.com/]HERE[/url].

My favorite plane in their collection is the Waco YMF-5.  So I drug the Alabeo version out of the back of the virtual hangar, and took her on a short hop over to Vashon Island.  Enjoy!

...and here's the real deal:

That is a beautiful plane. Too bad Alabeo's flight models are so poor. The sure made the external views look nice, though.

Finally won an ORBX screenshot contest!!!!!  Think I may choose the TrueEarth P3D product as my prize.
