FSX Air Sports Association Air Racing

Postby Robert » Sun Oct 30, 2016 7:35 pm

If anyone is interested, there are a group of guys doing air racing and they have a class freeware T-6 with liveries available: http://www.fsxairsports.com/air_racing/classes/t6/

It's not as nice as the A2A T6 but is tweaked to match the racing T6s in performance and have realistic responses to the controls.

They use the Digital Theme Park TeamSpeak server and have a channel on there if anyone wants to meet up and fly races with them.

They also have pylon slalom courses, do short field landing (STOL) competitions, and such. The videos are old but to give a taste:

As an aside, they use boxed FSX but are now using PMEM's JoinFS to allow boxed and SE to fly together.

I don't know if one of my scenery packs put course pylons out but there is a Reno mission that hopefully has pylons in the right places. Hadn't looked at the Reno scenery since installing Orbx global and base but I had pylons in I think all the right places. Anyway, here are the official Reno courses:

FASA is working on a photoreal scenery pack and has a preliminary version available where the pylons show up well and they also have the guide arrows and such that are painted on the ground to help with lining up. Also a lit pylon for the unlimiteds.

Guys, in VR a race looks extremely cool. I haven't run one yet but have been using JoinFS to record flights and then fly with a pack as I have been practicing so have seen a group of planes bank and pull. It looks amazing! And the fear factor is big with other planes in close and moving around.

I flew my first time tonight with another racer as he was showing me around the course and it is amazing!
