Just to get this at the top again...

I really need some help from a long EZ pilot who also plays FS9 or FSX.  Please drop me a PM or post on this forum if you fit the bill and are willing to help  8)

I have a LongEZ in FS 2004.It's not bad but it does fly with a Cessna cockpit. The performance parameters are not a 100% LongEZ but it is OK

easyrider how can I contact you... the PM system isn't working.
IM would be best, but email if you don't have a IM program.

We are interested in a pilot to help us with the development of a long EZ product  8)

I use X-Plane and have both a Defiant and a Long EZ which both seem to be very accurate simulations.  Plus the planes are free.

Sorry, but the product is only being developed for FS9 and FSX.  X-plane isn't the mainstream flight simulator.  Also, we are making a product, not looking for freeware ones.  This is going to blow freeware ones away.  8)

I appreciate the interest from you guys.  If you aren't getting PM's back from me it is because I keep getting a PHP error every time I try to post on a thread or send a PM.  If you guys could PM me your email or IM information that would be great  :D

AlphaSim is developing a new Long-EZ model for FSX - looks really good.

That is remarkable.  I was fooled at first and wondered why you put actual photos up on the site rather than the renderings.  Very nice.  And I recognize Bill Allen's airplane.
Title: Long EZ for Flight Sim
Post by: easyrider on February 23, 2008, 08:28:11 PM
I downloaded the Oliver Marechal program and it's pretty good.
We are having lousy weather here in the Golden State so I spent a pleasant afternoon flying around my home airport, Columbia (O22).
The aircfaft is based on Hans Georg. Schmid's aircfaft that he built and flew on many famous flights.
I was saddened to learn that Hans was killed taking off in his Lancair last July in an attempt to set a record on a flight to Oshkosh
Here's some relavant links

Hans Schmid was NOT flying a LANCEAIR when he was killed.   I saw
pictures of the Wheeler Express that he was building so I assume that
was the aircraft.

Hey guys, it is well on its way now.  I actually need a little bit of help if someone can respond here soon enough.  We are including a O-235 and O-320 model and we aren't quite sure what the speeds are for the 320.  Like where are the different colored arcs on the airspeed indicator (for the O-320 engine only).

If someone could post them it would be a big help  8)
I'll get some new pictures of it up soon  :D

Cant wait for it!!

Will it be Payware or Freeware?

I'm on the alphasim team, so it is the payware one.  However, it is the best deal I've ever seen for a payware plane.  5 different models, 8 paints, many different flight models, custom soundset, full 3D gauges and VC all for 25 dollars.  A paint kit will also be provided. You probably wouldn't see the plane for any less than 35 dollars anywhere else.  It is really impressive so far.  It is going to set new alphasim standards as well as flight simulator standards.  We've gone above and beyond on this one    8)

The Long-EZ has been released.

Note that the FS9 version has a couple of bugs that will be fixed as soon as possible.  Within the next few hours, hopefully.  The FSX one is running smoothly though.  

Enjoy  8)
