The longest flight I’ve done was JFK-LAX which took 6 hours in a headwind. I am thinking about doing a long haul flight such as LAX-NRT, and I’m wondering what precautions there are or any tips on what I should do to keep my phone from overheating, crashing, breaking, or my plane from running out of fuel. Any advice?
There’s quite a few topics around covering this. Here’s a start for you ;)

I am planning to fly around the whole Infinite Flight world and have some questions.
My flight would begin at EDDK 32R.
Then I would fly to KPOB, landing and departing at runway 23.
I would fly to KSFO and land and takeoff at 28R.
Next I’d land at YSSY runway 16R and depart runway 34L.
Then I would fly back to EDDK 32R again.
Is it possible to tank midflight with a refueling plane online?
Is it possible to refuel on the ground online?
Which plane should I take?
