Custom RealFlight Airfields – Bethpage RC Model Airplane Field

This is another follow-up to the HHAMS airfields I made for RealFlight 7.5. This time I modeled the Bethpage state park on Long Island. The polo field at the state park serves as RC model airfield for various AMA clubs including Whitman Flyers and Cobra.

Here is a video capture of me flying a plane around this field using Windows 10’s built-in Game Bar (Xbox Game DVR). In order to demonstrate the tent and seating behind the pilot line, I had to fly the plane behind me. In real life this is obviously not allowed. I also demonstrated one landing gear being clipped by the wooden fence – most objects are represented by 3D models.

This airfield is available at the official Knife Edge Swap Pages for RealFlight 7.5.  Download the .RFX. Launch RealFlight, and use File | Import | RealFlight Archive (RFX, G3X) to load the RFX file. This Bethpage photofield should now become part of the list of airports you can choose from the simulator.

Previous airfields I created for RealFlight 7.5 worked well with older version of RealFlight such as RF 6.5 and RF G4. This one should work as well. If you fly an older version of RealFlight, please help me confirm that this works with your version, by adding a comment blow.

About Xinhai Dude 辛亥生

The name Xinhai Dude 辛亥生 is a pun in Chinese, as it means both “he who was born in Xinhai” as well as “he who studies Xinhai”. I had an ambitious plan to write something about the great Xinhai Revolution of 1911, thus my blog https://xinhaidude.com. But after an initial flurry of activities the initiative petered out. One day I will still carry it through. But for now, this website has turned into a conglomerate of my work on various topics of interest to me, including travel pictures, RC model airplane flying, ice skating, classical music composition, science fiction short stories, evolution and atheism.
