#4K Original #Handcrafted #Fictional Exclusive Drag and Drop
A bunch of red and green rings throughout the Grand Canyon designed to be flown through by the TBM 930 or any other small aircraft. The starting point is Page Municipal Airport or if you load the included flightplan file it will put you in the starting position in the sky.

Pretty empty over here.

    Thanks Jacob. I mention your ring race from my aerobatics flight mods, e.g. the Extra 330LT https://flightsim.to/file/2767/extra-330lt-x

    Great addon. Thank you.

    I have used something similar for X-Plane called AirRace. It is meant for creating racing track for Red Bull AirRaces, but I reused it to fly through the Grand Canyon thanks to your great addon.

    If you would like an idea, may I propose to use an external text file with the coordinates lat/long, heading, ring size (for different types of plane sizes and increase the difficulty), height over AGL, ring colour and a possibility to enable/disable crash detection.

    With this the community can help you create courses around the world. How about flying along the walls on Mount Everest, or Island Hopping in the Bahamas?

    Just and idea.

    Keep up the good work.

    If someone is interested in the X-Plane plugin you find it in this link (I have not developed, nor have any affiliation to it. All glory goes to the developer Zorz. I only created a text file with the GC course)

      That is an amazing idea! I'm not sure when I would be able to as I have started school again and so that is taking up most of my time 😞 When I get a chance I will give that my best shot! If you want or are interested you can DM me on Discord JacobK#9511 and we can figure something out where I can send you the base files and you can make your own course if you would like!

    Very nice! One thing: the runway numbers on the fake airport are reversed (1/19)

      Oh! I will definitely fix that! Thanks!

    Very interesting. Good fun and practise controlling the Extra, with tons of performance. I did not load the route file. Entry in the sky looked 'obvious', where is the actual finish line? so maybe I missed the finish line, and landed at Page Muni. Any reason for different colour rings? I am colour blind, so not much difference to me. Maybe a few direction pointers may help.

      I made a custom airport at the end of the course and the rings lead you to it. I am going to clarify that that Page Municipal is the starting point. The only reason that the rings are different colors are to give it a bit more flavor. The only reason I added the flight plan is that I wasn't sure if people would be able to see the start.

      Hi Jacob, good effort. The custom airport did the job very well. As I recall, when I took off, I looked about and saw the first ring in the air, and presumed that was the start...and went from there. Maybe a a few more rings a tad closer to each other in the canyon, as some are a bit far away and you could end up lost. For some reason today, it would not load the canyon or the airport, so I need to have a look what I did wrong with Addon or the actual load. If you hit the rings, do you crash? You might want to consider a easy course, like now and a harder course where all of the rings are in tighter canyons..forcing you to slow up.

      I have been working on crash detection for the rings as there isn't any currently so keep an eye out for that! Thanks for the suggestions I am currently working on a more difficult version as the current course as I have heard is a bit easy and that will be released soon!

    Looks like it could be real fun in the MB339 😊
