Hello, I’ve been thinking of getting a new GA plane for some flying around. I’ve been leaning towards the Diamond DA40 but open to any recommendations.

Thanks guys,
Josh

I have been busy with some Ortho for FALE and FACT and Cape Town area. Really impressed with how much it changes the sim experience! :D

Hi Ruan,

Which source and level did you use. I have been replacing my ARC tiles with Bing.

Hi,

I used google at 15 or 16 (can't remember now).
Took around 12 hours to complete using a 100Mbps internet connection.

Looks really good. What level did you use and which source.

Thanks man, used a mixture of Bing for the more flat areas of cape town and google for table mountain seemed to turn out really well, Zoom level 19 for table mountain down to cape point. Fale was all bing maps at zoom lvl 19 around the airport and then 16 for the rest of the tile. :D

I read a lot of Ortho4xp, but have no idea where and how to start.

Are there any tips to start pls?

Probably the best freeware SR22, I've been enjoying this one recently.

A quick video to test some of my Pretoria scenery development courtesy of Ortho4XP. This was before Vulcan so my frame rates were dismal.

Definitely. I run 50-120fps on Vulkan when I used to have 30-50.
