View Full Version : Spinning the ICON A5...
04-20-2012, 02:55 PM
This is a spin in the Icon of MS Flight...I had a lot of extra height as I had been up to a volcano caldera at over 13000 feet, so I decided to get rid of the surplus altitude to get onto my approach to land.
This is an HD video so click the resolution up to 1080p and then click the "Full Screen" icon at bottom right.
Thanks for looking :)

I love the Icon for some things. It's great that the "anti-spin plane" spins better than any of the others I've tried. :cool:

LOL! Here is another way to spin it:-
Only trouble with this method is that you come out dead!

Yeah, with some of those more difficult falls I just parked it at the water's edge and hiked inland on a known heading, then reversed it to get back to the plane. The advantage to that is you get a chance to take a nice long look at some of the astonishing scenery -- without having to do white-knuckle flying at the same time.

Yes, I've done that a couple of times but is there a way to step upwards to climb a hill or obstruction?

Yes, I just walk straight forward and it climbs hills and cliffs pretty effortlessly. But trees and building you have to go around - can't walk thru them.

I also had to hike through the jungle to one of the falls. I landed the Icon in a clearing at the top of a nearby cliff and walked down to the fall. I got my aerocache but got hopelessly lost trying to find the plane. Fortunately that's not a requirement to keeping the cache, so I just went back to the map mode. :) Since we're walking through the jungle anyhow, maybe MS could put in a fist person shooter add-on. You know, a Magnum P. I. episode re-enactment. :) — Bob
