Just for fun. Videos are grabbed with Fraps 1.9D, resized and reduced to b/w using Zwei-stein 3.01. Quality is quite scarce, image is quite blurred and motion suffers of stuttering. Anyway, happy viewing!
Both these two videos show features of the G55 flight model: thanks to Gregory Pierson that developed the FM for the G55 and to Jerry Beckwith and the other guys at AvHistory for their work on the 1% development process.
- Take-off, about 2.5 Mb. The G55 had a pronounced swing to port during take off. Notice how the pilot has to work on the rudder to stay on the runway.
- Spin, about 8.5 Mb. When near to stall speed, apply left rudder and suddenly increase throttle to start the spin. To exit the spin: nose down to gain speed, right rudder to slow the rotation, cross your fingers and hope you have enough altitude.
All images are from CFS3.1, the only retouch I did is to darken the borders
and to add a little noise in some cases. Images are at different stages of development, more are coming. Click to see a bigger image.
