Ok, this was a fun ride and I wanted to share it with you guys.

It started with a "simple" question in the OrbiterSDK forum, where I asked how to determine if a vessel is on a runway or outside of it.
The solution is trivial for a runway aligned with x and y (East-West or North-South) but what happens in other cases?

Urwumpe's quick answer was:
What about defining the runway with barycentric coordinates?

(Ab)using 2 Ravenstars! Stunt Alley Test.2

The more i play around with the "stunt-alley", the more fun it is!

Plus, i'm learning all sorts of new stuff in Orbiter that i didn't know how to do before.

-How to add 2 playbacks in one scenario
-Camera handling
-Starting to learn how to edit videos, cause filming a flight "live" is pretty difficult. With editing, you can have many different shots and all kinds of cool stuff embeded in your film.

Here is my latest...

-Launch from a Delta Cannon.
-Pass through the rings above the runway, without touching any.
-Land on the (tiny) pad between the last ring and the wall.
-DO NOT hit the WALL.

Steve Tyler's and Douglas E. Beachy's XR2Ravenstar is my favourite spaceship in Orbiter.
(Thank you!)
First time i saw it , i had just mastered Dan Steph's DGIV (DGIII when i first downloaded it), and i considered myself a rather good pilot.
But on my first flight with the Ravenstar, i couldn't even get the darn thing in LEO!
Since that first flight, i think i've come a long way:
