  1. And lucky there was a set of wings nearly complete in the States which they could use.

    Unless you're buying them as a 'Friend' of the IWM - no early bird prices then 😞

    Watcha Got Cookin'?

    surely the goo squished between my heatsink and CPU would be classed as 'open'
  4. Hi Roberts - it's been a while! Much like FT, I'm using an (ancient) MS Sidewinder 2 FFB stick, secondhand Saitek pedals, CH Throttle quadrant (the last iteration of the software runs OK on Win 10) and a custom button box so I don't have much experience with the newer sticks but your hardware choices look good. You could save some money by going for a GTX980 rather than the 1060 - I believe the performance is similar - certainly my 980 runs all the current sims with all the eye candy on at decent frame rates.

    Interesting article - I am rather envious of Richard Grace's toybox, even if Air Leasing is the operator rather than the owner of the aircraft.

    It flies! P-47 'Nellie' (G-THUN) about to touchdown after a test sortie from her Duxford home (At least I think it's Duxford - don't remember all those trees though). This is going to freakin' AWESOME (as long as they open the taps a bit and not just have her stooging around with Sally B!) (Not my photo - it's in focus - Credit to Duxman over at the Historic Aviation forum)

    What a Hoot

    Some of those old kites are plenty tricksy, especially ground handling, take-offs and landings

    Hey fellas!

    Welcome back Smash, as they say, once a dangerdog, always a dangerdog.
  10. This is looking REALLY good!
  11. I'd prefer engines off but pre-warmed at mission start personally but it's a good step in the right direction

    Colin! It'll be splendid to see you old fruit. Sorry to hear RL is causing you grief

    Another type Richard Grace is checked out on? That guy is turning into a regular Winkle. Looking forward to seeing that bird in the metal. Legends hopefully especially given Mr Grace’s connections with TFC Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Well, it looks interesting. I’ll have to do a bit more reading up but it’s worth looking at Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
