DCS MP pylon racing. Free.

 

It's got rules and everything.

 

http://virtualairrace.com

 

 

There is no racing this year.. it's complicated. Actually I am not sure of the situation....

 

However you can DL the edge plane and fly the race courses in single player DCS.

 

http://virtualairrac...m/edge-540-mod/

 

and the paint stuff to make a skin.

 

There is a Discord thingy:

 

https://discord.gg/6YTR835

 

and there is more guff to read there.

 

1) DL DCS world.

2) DL the Edge 540 mod. Unzip.

Folder = "VARS Edge 540 Package v1.1" 

Select the folder "Mods" from inside this folder.

Copy and then paste into:

C:\Users\"PC name here* \Saved Games\DCS  

 

Start Game select Edge 540 and then select "instant action" then select "VARS track etc etc etc " .

A window pops up "choice of role" and there are several races you can fly. You can select what colour  

you want to race and "air" is you want to fly "air start" mode. The track is tight.

 

3) Practice the pylon tracks. Get good.

4) Get on Discord and make a noise.

 

Met a fellow Kiwi on Discord and got on quite well. : - )

 

I thought RoF pilots would be really really good... so lets go!

 

S!

 

Knalp.

 

PS. I had to turn the ROLL down a lot as it's insane, and needed to TRIM as it's nose heavy.

Also default head position is a bit low. Also DCS has some kind of head translation built in...

so when I turn my head I clip the canopy. and you can stick your head though it. Weird.

I am not sure I trust this statement from you. It's, well, it's just, um, too er, how do I say this. :"grounded" ?

Oh that is silly. Ignore me.

 

Yes they have leader boards! But they don't have times... or dates. hmm... this is weird.

erm...

 

You would think that they would post the times for courses... uh. I am not sure.

But yes.

 

um. here?

The Edge plane seems to be a knockout thing but no posted times... which is annoying. We want times!

 

I have had a quick look at the courses and they look pretty darn short.... a really long race would be great!

Like a long "rally" race all over the place.

 

Will have to find out how to make a map....

 

and the EDGE 540 is a hoot to fly, you can do some crazy things in it. Helicoptering around in a spin... heck!

 

S!

 

Knalp.
