We would have to work out a way to all get on multiplayer, and sign on individually to JoinFS. I will try to bring it up to the team at practice tomorrow and see if everyone can be around to try it out.


I may have a solution which is the same I'm doing for another group if you did want to attend.

Let me know.

Glad to hear it.

What's that? Just hosting a multiplayer session, and everyone connecting individually?

Could you guys record and post the .jfs file of the flight?

That way even if people can't join in to observe, they can always download the .jfs file and watch the replay.

I've been hoping aerobatics teams would start doing that anyway. Would be cool!...

Good idea, Robert, I'll create a new sub-forum where people can post links to their recordings for others to view and comment.

We certainly could do something like that, however right now it would look rather odd due to the reasons listed in the OP(if you watch the stream link you will see what I'm talking about). Our solos demo would look reasonably crisp, except for any maneuver inverted flight is done, but the diamond/delta would look very very strange, more or less unwatchable.
