  1. Thanks Chris - a very interesting read! What's next?

    Ah yes, the Widowmaker. Complete insanity

    Thanks for the update Chris. Something which definitely WON'T be there this year is nonetheless making some nice progress now...Believed to be in H2 at DX (final assembly?) Photo taken 12/06/2018 (credit to BeaufighterVI on the Key forums) And Berlin Express has a new lid! (and as I type has possibly already been flown by Mr Romain)

    I remember the very first time I saw the Tiger, I wasn't even aware such a thing existed before! TFC's ironworks 4-ship 'cat display was a wonderful thing to behold.

    Might be up for that Dave, as I'm not sure if I have a +1 for my room - So...Possibly a spare room at DX hotel going begging - anyone?
  7. Hopefully you had a good turn out and the flypast went well. ~S~ WWHappy, blue skies sir.

    Dedicated DCS evening

    I have most of the prop stuff and the helis.
  9. So is this week odd or even?
  10. 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'
  13. 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.
