Why I fly #8: Skykomish Slopes


Recommended Posts



I've waited for years to have a machine that could record and edit game/flight videos and the time has finally arrived.


Every time I saw someone adding to the FSX sticky "How do you keep FSX interesting?" I wanted to share my experiences but couldn't really except by maybe copying over one of the in-flight "recordings" (.fsr file).


Now I have an alternative... videos fill the bill and, yes, I am having fun.


This "Why I fly #8: Skykomish Slopes" was prompted by the impressive terrain adjacent to Skykomish State Airport [s88] in Washington State.


available on YouTube:







Sim - Prepar3d 2.5 (1920 x 1080 30fps)

capture - OBS

titles created in Gimp

editing - Blender (final mp4 at 720p)

duration - 15:34

music - none


Aircraft - Corben Baby Ace Tundra (tire) by Craig Richardson (corbenbabyacetundrafsx.zip)

Scenery - FTX NA Pacific Northwest regional scenery


I created and used 4 custom scenery camera locations to capture the action.


I regret that hard-to-see blue aircraft color against all that dark green background. Sorry


Hope you enjoy anyway.



Hooked since FS4... now flying:
