Active Display Teams

Post by Lux. » Fri Jun 08, 2012 4:35 pm

Hello all,

I was wondering how many active Display Teams there are. If you have a active Display Tean please reply to this post. If you would like to start up a display team post here as well.

Regards,
Lux.

Hello All,

Now I know why everyone wants more demo teams, and then eventually airshows. Scarecrow and I are going to talk and work about Display Teams and Air Shows to make the YS Airshows better.
Hope that everyone is into make YS Airshows more realistic and better. Please comment on this.

Regards,
Lux.

One of VNAF's future aims and also supposedly my part in YSAS is to improve and ensure the realistic or at least reliable quality in our air shows. This means that we can hopefully have some type of quality control to make our air shows more realistic and eliminate the "impossible" performances with 15+ G-pulling displays.

I'd say 10 - 13 as the maximum. Anything more is beginning to get unrealistic even though I have seen pilots pull 15G its not very common.

At that point, it's no longer about the pilot as it becomes a factor of the plane itself. Most aircraft are not even built to sustain more than 9 or 10 g's besides some aerobatic planes. At that point, aircraft will begin to take damage and even break apart. Whether the pilot can survive it or not, the aircraft may be the deciding factor. So when someone gets into a stock Thunderbird and pulls multiple 15G turns, that's highly unrealistic and basically becomes all YS.

Hey All,

Some people are questioning the "fun" in making aerobatics realistic. We are not trying to get a 100% realistic. We are trying to stop people from doing really unrealistic shows like as VNAF ONE said:

Thats it.

I feel that you should also allow shows that use YSFlight for talent purposes. noobflyer9001 in his f-16c stock thunderbird doing flybys all the time isn't interesting or fun.

And Extra 300S synched with heavy metal audio and pulling rudder stalls, is.

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

Hey Flake,

Good to know but don't worry about it. When VNAF hosts Air Shows, we will have quality control. Also, some changes within the air show itself will change like the quality, standards, preparedness, etc... Be ready for the changes of fun and exciting airshows YSFlight!

Regards,
Lux.

If you don't want people abusing the G-limit, why don't you just turn blackout on? If you know what your doing you can still make a tight enough turn, and blackout adds to the realism.
