So I finally had some time to practice some Rendezvous with SSU and FDO MFD. So far I have succesfully completed STS-114, STS-121 and STS-115. I am still very far from mastering FDO MFD but Indy's walkthrough was very helpful. In all 3 cases I made it to the ISS though the Ti TIGs were not exactly the same as in real life (and in the original FDO MFD plan). In order to keep the Lighting and the vertical velocity within the desired constraints I had to modify the Terminal Initiation TIGs. Long way to go but I am very happy so far.
This tool has been in my wish list since ages and IMHO it brings SSU realism to different level.
Some pics from STS-121 RBar arrival just prior to orbital sunset on July 6th 2006
Discovery 600 feet below the ISS
View of the PB and the Docking Camera in the monitor
A bit of sci-fi with the ISS clearly visible against the darkness of space with the camera switched in Night Vision mode
Nice to see the ISS in the correct config. :thumbup:
