Thread: AlphaSim UFO in FSX Accel

  1. #1

    Default AlphaSim UFO in FSX Accel

    Here is a video showing NEW flight dynamics for the AlphaSim UFO (circa 2008). Radical, radical, radical cfg and air file values allows for 'out of this world' performance, including climb to 200K ft in 3 mins at Mach 4.33, hover capability, and VTOL take offs and soft landings. Water landable. Not sure what altitude it is capable of climbing to - did not test yet. This is definitely the best looking UFO I have ever seen in Flt Sims.

    Model by P. McDonell & P. Perrott, Textures by J. McDaniel & P. Perrott, Nav Lights by Bob Chicilo. NEW flight dynamics are meant to be used for ROCKETS (ie: long tube versus small disc) but they still work good. YouTube Link: https://youtu.be/mdAb9QDe9hY . 20May30.

    OK. FYI. Took 2 min 30 sec to climb to 400K ft. Tried to make it dive, etc (10 min) but nothing - had NO control. Shut enignes off and used slew to descend to 180K ft (took 14 min 30 sec (so now 17 min total). Got controls back and descended to 10K ft (took 3 min 30 sec to get there (now 20 min 30 secs total). At 10K set course back to start (used GPS) and landed where I started from (Rnw 26). Trip up/down took 24 min 25 sec total. Made a video (24:25 total) but I doubt anyone is interested.

    Now that! Is really cool.
    Can you get a deck on that?
    That would be amazing place to fish from!
    Good video

    There are no lakes, rivers or ponds, so therefore no fish, in outer space. At any rate, when it hovers over water here on Earth the fish get stunned and float to the surface. They open the center hatch and just grab (with their 'hand') whichever fish they like. But it gets flash frozen and taken back to their labs. The 'germs' on/in the fish are not tolerated by aliens. :-)

    PS: I have video clips of panel showing 400K ft, at 180K and at 10K (2 min 30 sec?). Delted the rest as it was 50 Gbs!

    Isn't anti-gravity the best thing since fire?
