Thread: Midnight Canyon Run

  1. #1

    Midnight Canyon Run

    I am a huge fan of high speed low level flying in Horizons. Isinona pretty much got me hooked on the freedom FA-OFF flying gives you.

    Am now on the hunt for the most challenging and scenic locations within our galaxy,if anyone knows some great locations please PM me or leave a message here

    Well I am defintely not a Youtuber or professional content creator, my skills consist of pressing play and hoping for the best.

    Apologies for the dodgy quality/FPS, the video below is clips from a few runs I did over the weekend.

    Runs are from two beautiful locations 'Binary Sunset run in the Utu System' 'Mitterland Holland run with an eclipse every minute or so' Extremely challenging flying during the eclipses, but a huge amount of fun in VR.

    This should be an extreme virtual sport. The IEagle tops out at 1454 Km/h I am addicted!

    Rep, that is sweet!

    How many Eagles were harmed in the making of these films?

    Lol, none whilst I filmed on the weekend. Over the past 2 months - Couldn't even count the number of times I limped back to a station on life support

    The Imperial Eagle is definitely one of my favourite ships now.

    Great flying, what happened to the sound? and what is the top boost speed on that thing, maybe we could do some canyon race, me in the iCourier and that Eagle.

    EDIT
    Never mind, it was my fault. Sound is on

    Definitely mate, always looking for cmdr's to fly with. I was using my scout ship in those clips, it's a heavy build (SRV/top shields), max speed is around 419 m/s, a lightweight build should be able to push it a little further.

    My courier is around 300 / 410 however its a combat build I haven't tried the iEagle yet but I will give it a try for sure. Love those canyon races.

    Ok you sold me.Yep definitely going to pick up an imperial eagle but as for speed and handling the original eagle might be better..but looses some points on cool factor.

    The original Eagle is more maneuverable but a lot slower. Am really looking forward to the F63 being released, so much fun in CQC, handles superbly with FA-OFF.

    I think it will also give ships that can haul fighters a good "kick in the pants" can't wait!

    Thumbs up

    Great stuff. You really show that it is not all about big fancy ships, the smaller nimble ones have their place in the game too.

    Awesome stuff,

    Can't wait to get VR now. I love the ground/canyon flight too it's the best thing in Horizons for me, although i still have to learn FAOFF. I found a crater on a ringed 2.36G planet in the Taurus dark region. It must have been at least 1500 miles across, filled with a mountain range that dwarf's the Himalayas. A truly awe inspiring environment. I'll dig the coordinates out later if you like but such places aren't rare in this game.
