Formation flying and acrobatics

Postby Eris » Mon Mar 17, 2014 4:00 pm

I'm not much interested in dog fighting myself, but I might enjoy just trying to do some fancy flying to make videos - acrobatics and close formations and things like that. I figure we'd need at least 4 people on the flying team itself plus a few others to be obeservers and run the "cameras" to record things.

Anyone else interested in this?

Like our own version of the US Navy's Blue Anglels or the USAF's Thunderbirds?

Yeah pretty much. It could be fun, produce a few nice videos, and be good pilot training as well.

I might be up for that, it'll depend on how the control scheme works out.

I could do some recording if someone could do the editing, etc. Never done this before but I do have Nvidia shadow play to record with.
