Carrier Trapping in FSX

Post by (C/229) Highway on Sun 16 Aug 2015 - 0:03

Here are a few video's that I captured flying the VRS Super Hornet on carrier ops, a couple of these are at the request of some of the members to get a look at different conditions and an idea what the FM is like for the Superbug.

One of the things that I like the most about this aircraft is the flight modelling and that of the winds around the carrier. With anything more than 10kts over the deck, you get a burble of air modelled a few hundred feet out from the deck, you can see it's effects pretty clearly about 10-15 seconds out from when I trap.

Night time trap.
12kt Winds gusting to 16kts, 2,500ft, overcast, 50 miles visibility



Dawn cold start up and launch.
8kt Winds gusting to 10kts, 6,000ft, scattered, 50 miles visibility



Dawn Trap.
8kt Winds gusting to 10kts, 6,000ft, scattered, 50 miles visibility

Looked Great! Very impressive flying. If only we had a TS for flying flight simulators, then you could teach everyone to fly like that!
