Hi all,

How was it ? I participated, Canion to PSP only, but sorry for the large patterns, really difficult for me to remain close of the airport for reason I can't figure out. I'm too fast that's one part of it, also not confident with location & rather be too far than too close.
There's an altitude shift from X-Plane to Flight sim, not sure if that can be sorted out and how, but I saw some planes 30 ft higher on taxi.

It was quite a lot of trafic at PSP, sorry I could not stay longer on the night, but thanks for the europe friendly scheduled time.

See you,

Jean-Fran├žois

Jean-Francois,

The event was a lot of fun. The issue with the altitude is that you had sloped runways turned on which causes your elevation data to be 20-40ft different than FSX or any other xplane users who have sloped runways turned off. I'm actually working on a solution to this as we speak...but in the mean time, if you turn off 'runways follow terrain contours' in xplane (it's in the general settings in xp11) that should solve your issue for the most part.

Where are these events usually posted? FB page primarily?

home page, FB, twitter and our forum. If you check the forum at least once every couple of days, you won't miss one, or you can use the other vehicles that were listed.

This was a short notice event for which we weren't able to get a graphic done in time, so there wasn't a home page announcement, but that shouldn't be the case in the future.
