Are the lines in a 'scenery folder' that can be added to the sim (FSX) with a simple download?  If so then it would be simple to have them showing (for contest flying) or turn them off when not in use via the Scenery Library.

Hey Spud,

Ya just beat me to it.  Yessir, the lines are a separate scenery item to be added to your scenery library just like any other RTMM scenery.  I've attached them to this post if anyone wants to take a look.  There's 400ft marked now, with distances labeled (in feet).

These are painted on runway 20 at PANT (Annette Island).  I designed them to fit with the "Annette Island Fly In" scenery, but they work just as well without that scenery loaded, as long as you're running ORBX PFJ.

Video demo to follow, but maybe not until tomorrow sometime.

Thanks Jeff.   I'm sure you know this but I realized I should have said it - only the stripes are mine,  the rest is all the RTMM "Annette Island Fly In" scenery.

     Yep, I knew that.  I've got your lines installed and going to do some practice runs now.   ;)

     Here are some runs I took in 2011 and recorded.  -->  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gCBmITFvYBk&list=PLB77F6881658CDC6A

    ... and some Valdez STOL action ...

Good stuff Jeff!  Thanks for the Valdez footage,  and nice runs of your own there.   Was that the FR Super Cub? 

Here's a quick circuit in the Super Cub Ultra,  showing the lines being used for scoring (and it was a fun landing  ;D.)

Wow!  Very impressive performance.   8)  I was using an A2A Piper J-3 Cub.  I have the Flight Replica Super Cub also.  Great video.  Thanks.   :) 8)

Thanks Jeff.   I love the A2A Cub, I should have recognized it.   How did you get that level of performance out of it though?  I remember it flying more like... well,  like a 65hp J-3!

I've been reading the Valdez rules and thinking we could incorporate their poker run too...  this really could be fun.  If nothing else,  the 2017 Valdez fly in poker run would make a good little MFC tour  (hint hint Norm :) ).  I'm gonna fly the route myself when I have a chance... it looks like their way of running a "real life tour".

I want to see the pictures of all the aircraft on their noses from too much breaking!!  I watched a student do that to a nice stearman a few years back.....what a mess.

Good, job....I shall give it a try

 No doubt,  Henry.   That's funny you saw a Stearman do it... it wasn't in IL was it?   ;D. The Stearman I used to teach in apparently had such an episode in its past... unbeknownst to the current owner when he bought it.   It doesn't appear in the mx logbooks  ::)...  his face when we heard the story was... a study,  I think they say?   ;D

Has anyone tried the lines in P3d yet?  I'm still on FSX, planning to make the move eventually when I do a new machine build... in the meantime,  I don't want to go through the install just to test some lines ;-).

No the Stearman was in Texas, just North of Dallas.  I mostly flew sailplanes out of that airport and at Caddo Mills.  We did a complete recover of the Stearman and it wasn't quite ready for flight when I left.

     I put them into my P3dv4.2, and they are just fine.   8)

 Thanks guys.   Now we just need to test it in multiplayer and see if FSCloud is smooth enough to eyeball a takeoff point,  or if we'd need to use JoinFS.  I'm on the road a few days a week and time at home is mostly occupied with family (not that that's a bad thing), but I'll be around this thurs evening approx 2130pdt (0430z) or maybe Monday afternoon... that's what I know for now,  in the unlikely event it matches up with anyone else.  Or,  if anyone else tries it in multiplayer, report back!
