Real Flight 4.5 Airports

The following files were created for RealFlight 4.5, they should be compatible with newer versions.  

ORCC Field

 

In the video you can see that the plane flies behind the shelter because the shelter is modeled as a series of primitives.  The plane self-destructs when it hits the tree and falls apart.  I was actually aiming for my car which is also modeled, using a pick-up truck shape to mimic the missing roof on the convertible.

Airport/ORCC Field_PI.RFX - This field is a 360 panorama with a perspective of standing at one of the pilot stations.  Almost all the field objects are modeled and can be collided with.  

Airport/ORCC Field 12.jpg - If you have a different simulator, download the photo on its own.

Major features:

8000x4000 pixel stitched image.

Shelter behind the pilot.

Dirt mound at the left end of the field. You can fly behind it.

Multiple pilot stations.

Fence surrounding the full field perimeter.

The pit out front of the field has an invisible mound in place beyond the fence, crashing in the pit area causes your plane to disappear from view as with the real field.

The large tree wall to the rear of the parking area is modeled as a solid wall.

The pit area objects (benches, chairs, etc.) are discretely modeled to allow a plane to drive in the pits if you are careful.

Cottage Lake

 

Airport/Cottage - at the lake_PI.RFX - This field is a 360 panorama with a perspective of standing at one of the dock at the edge of Farm Lake.  Most local objects modeled and can be collided with.  

Airport/Lake from dock - Final.jpg - If you have a different simulator, download the photo on its own.

Major features:

8000x4000 pixel stitched image.

Water level is about 4" above the lake image.  This allows floating models to bob and move as if they are in water.  RealFlight will compute interference between the propeller and the water.  Larger models with landing gear can still operate but smaller planes get bogged in the water.

Shoreline step modeled and follows the undulations of the shore shape.

The neighbours raft and distant docks in both directions can be collided with.

The large trees to the left and right are modeled to approximate the shape of the branches.

The cottage lawn and the building itself are in place to allow landings if you can manage it.

Helicopters take off behind the pilot on the dock.

Power and pedal boats are modeled.

Island in front is a modeled as a solid wall.

School Field

 

Airport/Cedarview Field_PI.RFX - This field is a 360 panorama with a perspective of standing at one of the dock at the edge of Farm Lake.  Most local objects modeled and can be collided with.  

Airport/Cedarview Field - Final.jpg - If you have a different simulator, download the photo on its own.

Major features:

8000x4000 pixel stitched image.

Fence surrounding field fully modeled. 

High sections of fence and backstop are in place.

Barn - you can fly between the fence and the barn if you are careful

Bleachers

School building

Rising ground towards school is modeled but if you go too far you fall out of sight.

 

Videos

Fun Cub flying at ORCC (HD)

The Fun Cub had a GoPro camera mounted on it, I shot the footage in 720.  Click in the frame to switch to 720 mode.

 

 

MikroKopter Cottage View (HD)

The GoPro is mounted on the top of my MK.  The camera was set to capture stills every 2 seconds.  The conditions were very windy once reaching the tree tops.  Click in the frame to switch to 720 mode.

 

 

Farm Auction (HD)

A relative's farm auction, filmed using the Mikrokopter.  The GoPro was moved underneath the MK, a small portion of the landing skids are in view.  The vibration isolation has been improved considerably since this footage was taken. Click in the frame to switch to 720 mode.

 

 

SeaWind

The SeaWind was set up for FPV use.  I had to take care not to overload the plane since its design wing loading was approximately 18 oz/ft^2.  With the camera gear and transmitter on board it went to about 22 oz/ft^2 and felt like it struggled to carry everything. Take off and landings were much faster than normal.  It was fun to finally see my lake from above the trees.
