Flying field photo

I have heard you can upload a picture of your flying field into Real Flight7. Is that true, and if so, how do you do that?

So... as you have guessed, the photo is not that simple to take. It is a special panoramic picture taken in pieces and stitched together with special software before you are ready to import. Then it takes some work to build all the obstacles.

Lots of fun, and you will learn a bit along the way.
