    Well, that was certainly a novel circle-to-land approach :costumes:

    I'm glad to see someone it trying it in the Beercat. With the dive-brake and power it might just be a contender!

    Need I remind you of the nose down pictures of me in the Bear Cat. It may be a contender but should short lived with me.

    So really 1:12:28, but....
    Without the penalty...
    You beat my time of 1:09:29 .. and the aircraft was..... Veneaviones Rockwell Turbo Commander 690 (winglet) in NOAA paint.

    Good Flying!! :ernae:

    I can't get to U72 under 8500' with my terrain mesh without going to hell and gone in an end run coming BACK from the following stop at ID67. Me and Dave are working a clandestine practice again tonight. Did I say that out loud?
    I'm working 2 planes that can challenge Vicious' speed but one is fuel challenged and the other is most unforgiving of sloppy pattern handling. And their both piston-powered...:d

    (we don't need no steenking turboprops :costumes

    Yeah and we got the Auto Gen Slider

    FULL RIGHT

    Which means some of these strips are very challenging. Dive in yank on the stick and hope you don't go splat. :costumes:

    Busted altitude???

    I thought the 02ID-13ID leg had a 9500 limit? What did the "9500 ***" mean?

    John, to reach U72 with FSGenesis FS9 mesh I found it necessary to drop the autogen trees which just allows one to scrape over a low point on one intervening ridge... :redf:

    (With full trees, I managed to get through at 8470ft--too close to replicate with any confidence. Landed with pine needles lodged in the gear.:isadizzy

    You got that right Limit on 02ID - 13ID Leg is 9500 not 9000

    I launch the first Official Protest and Call Shinaniganins All those who agree....

    Must be an over site on the part of SG he's just forgetting his own rules. :d

    You fellas look like you are having fun. I like fun. :d

    Results are already in from the first test run. Numbers are looking good so far for this super-secret RTW legal aircraft.

    Hope to do the full route this weekend.

    Actually, I didn't forget them Dave. I made an error in transferring the data from the spreadsheet to the written rule in Post #2 (pasting from Word/Excel doesn't always go smoothly in here)
    The cap altitudes got slipped in the transfer.. 4 legs of 8500, the one at 9500, one at 9000 and 4 at 8500 is the sequence - so, the correct "high" legs are:

    13ID 0U1 15.4 9500 ft ASL
    0U1 U72 34.5 9000 ft ASL
    ALL OTHERS ARE 8500 ASL MAX.

    when I checked the times I was going by my original sheet as shown above.

    Now Vicious did indeed work from the initial posted data so I have to bite the bullet and let his leg stand as flown and the total reverts to his posted 1:02:++ which puts him in Dr. House's chair with some pain killers. So far! (Wanna refly the 4th leg at 8500 and see how you do? - just for fun)

    I'll recheck the others in a few minutes and make the appropriate comments. Since I'm NOT keeping a running tally you'll have to make your own notes on the bathroom wall. (Rules will be edited to show the correction for those yet to fly)

    Someone had better get a fast plane going though -- I think an under-one-hour time is possible...

    Exclamation

    Since I can't edit a post that old...
    REVISED, EDITED AND CORRECTED
    Things you need to know:

    The entire area is capped due to a Homeland Security exercise overhead (10,000 ASL and above) so be careful of Altimeter Settings and altitudes! (Winds and mountainous terrain can change altimeter settings significantly enroute) A Ten (10) Minute penalty is applied to any leg that exceeds the listed Max Enroute Altitude as shown on the Duenna. The caps have been tested but do NOT guarantee terrain clearance for a direct route.

    Destination Airport
    FROM -- TO -- Distance -- ELEV -- RWY - SURFACE -- Max Enroute Altitude

    KMYL -- 0U0 --28.5 ----- 6662 -- 16/34 - 4000x100 Grs -- 8500 ft ASL
    0U0 --- ID86 --21.5 ----- 5489 -- NE/SW 1800x50 Dt ---- 8500 ft ASL
    ID86 -- 02ID --21.0 ----- 5634 -- NE/SW 2000x100 Grs --- 8500 ft ASL
    02ID -- 13ID --21.7 ----- 6400 -- N/S -- 1600x100 Grs --- 8500 ft ASL
    13ID -- 0U1 -- 15.4 ----- 4831 -- 02/20 - 2850x135 Grs -- 9500 ft ASL ***
    0U1 -- U72 --- 34.5 ----- 4742 -- 04/22 - 2500x75 Grs --- 9000 ft ASL ***
    U72 -- ID67 -- 13.1 ----- 4200 -- 13/31 - 1100x75 Grs --- 8500 ft ASL
    ID67 -- ID41 -- 23.1 ----- 6539 -- 06/24 - 2450x175 Grav - 8500 ft ASL
    ID41 -- 24K -- 17.6 ----- 3982 --- 17/35 - 1500x150 Grs -- 8500 ft ASL
    24K -- KMYL -- 16.6 ---- 5021 --- 16/34 - 6107x75 Asp ---8500 ft ASL

    TOTAL 213.0nm

    Vicious - Leg 4 reflight

    This is my leg 4 reflight at the correct altitude. I actually picked up a few seconds, so it doesn't appear that I had any real benefit from the higher altitude limit. I could probably make up some more time on legs 5 and 6 at the higher limits now set, but I don't think it will matter much. I know I left more than a few minutes on the course and there's faster runs yet to come. :d

    I hate to suggest this but I have some recollection of the Tucano being one of those way too hot planes (FM) that was not RTW useable. Dave would have no way of knowing this. MM might have an answer to this.

    Good flying!
