In the Abacus Crop Dusting Missions tutorial, what do you need to do to ensure you trigger the pointers at the beginning and end of each pass? Because I've tried to complete that mission several times, and each time I fly right through the pointer that says "Field" (and at 50 feet AGL or less just like the man says), but every time except once, nothing happened at all! What's going on here, and how can I actually make it work right?
See if this helps.
Abacus is not known for it's perfection as a few members have posted.
It doesn't, but I think I got it -- after looking through the mission HTM file, I realized I must've been flying TOO low (some of those markers are raised 50 feet AGL, possibly to help the pilot avoid tall trees, and I must've been flying UNDER them!) Anyway, I tried flying no lower than the stated altitude of each marker (regardless of what the radar altimeter says) and didn't have any problems anymore with markers failing to trigger (although I did crash into a tree on this flight!)
Glad to hear you worked it out, good thinking.
We have 270 free missions here...enjoy!
Thanks, I already got several of these!
