Flightnight - 7th of March - Reno Revisited

22 Feb 2020 18:40 - 06 Mar 2020 19:27 #45139 by geed
Gentlemen, you got a race!

Here we go again! FGUK goes Reno Air Race!

It time for big engines and lots of horse power unleashed on a tight course around Reno Stead Air Field.

This time we will do these races in a unsorted order and I will call them out. We will start with 30 minutes of warmup and then start with one of these races, allthough the Unlimited Class is our main event:

Helicopter race
Here at FGUK we go nuts for helicopters so we will race helicopters. Choose wisely as you need to go as fast as possible and stay in the air. Remember to not to cut any marker.

Unlimited class
Choose from what the FGUK hangar has to offer here. Unfortunately we do not allow planes from other hangars as it is too much of a hassle to download everything up front and make it work for the video. Thanks for your understanding.

Jet class
This time we will use the Yak-130 from the FGUK hangar for the race. Get it from our hangar here


Race Plan:
We will do the staging phase together with me trying to do the lead plane. T/O is at RWY 08 We will fly a 360 degree course until everyone has gathered and everyone flies in a line formation. I will then call out the race and leave the formation. From that time on you will fly the course three times and try to be the fastest plane around the course. After overflying the race line for the third time, you will exit the race area and land on RWY 08. Turn SOUTH after overflying the RWY and fly the southern pattern for FINAL RWY 08.

Time Plan:
As always we'll meet at 8PM London Time, at ICAO KRTS.

COMMS:
Comms on TeamSpeak as always: www.fguk.me/forum/radio-comms/20-team-speak3-server-details

SCENERY:
Get the scenery pack here:
www.fguk.me/hangar/download/3-scenery/571-reno-air-races

Install it by unpacking it into your preferred custom scenery folder and set up up as one in the Flightgear launcher.

Need to be teased? FlightChops did a wonderful tribute video. Have a look at it.

We have an Issue. The Air Race models are no longer in the Terrasync scenery. Its now just an empty airstrip.

Bother, they are gone from the scenery map too so it's not just a blip.

I can try and re-add them back in TS but since the servers are not accepting entries (I've submitted several object updates almost 2 months ago and still haven't been included) it won't help for this FlightNight.
I just hope my work doesn't get lost as it's already happened that submitted models didn't got a confirmation email and never became available.

Thanks a lot guys for digging this up!

I’ll take it and let’s see if I can extend it a bit.

Did I eventually try adding it to terrasync? Don’t even remember that. So it seems, someone didn’t like it and removed it then again? Hmm...

Btw are we still using the x-plane scenery gateway?

I will probably go for the ai scenario as installing scenery via the launcher seems more difficult? What do you guys say?

Allright - tested it and it is still sufficient for what I want to achieve so we'll stick to the isntallable scenery pack on the Google Drive.

Sorry Geed, I'm all fired up....



Rare Bear...possible/arguably the baddest ass Reno Racer of all time - Built on Grumman F8F it boast 4500 horse power. The above video, just the sound, makes me crazy. Saw Rare Bear do a flyby a few years ago locally and the pure sound pressure level along with the bumble-bumble-bumble of the huge engine and prop as it went past at almost 500 MPH was enough to literally make me cry.

Like being overwhelmed by a thunderstorm. There is that much power....
