    New headset

    Apparently my headset has given up, or rather the mic has. I'm looking at these: https://www.amazon.ca/HyperX-Gaming-Headset-Nintendo-Switch/dp/B00SAYCXWG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1544546435&sr=8-2&keywords=hyperx+cloud+2+gaming+headset I'm blessed with ears big enough that if I could learn to flap them I might just fly. Need a comfortable set. I'll still be on but mute ... enjoy it while you can.

    TV show. "The Attackers"

    Got Amazon Fire Stick a while back. I found this Russian TV series about a WW2 Yak3 squadron. The flying sequences are laughable, War Thunder rendering or something. They have 5 or 6 non-functional Yak's but plenty of old trucks and equipment, German and Soviet both. Hannomags, Opel Blitz, at least 2 PZ IV tanks, AA guns and assorted kit. At least 1/3 of the actors are women. The Yak's are towed around giving the impression of taxiing and taking off but all the details are missing. They climb into a U-2 biplane and "contact". Jump in and start rolling but the plane doesn't rock at all and no prop wash. Plane stops and guy jumps out but the prop is still spinning wildly, obviously no engine there. LOL and the subtitles... guy crashes and crawls to a trench.. Normally it's "are you ok"... here it's "are your arms and legs intact?" Instead of "dismissed" it's "you may be free". Great comedy.

    Trim on British planes

    Doubt this could have anything to do with the server. It's also happening with the 109. Saitek. Ghost inputs.

    Salute to this 109 driver

    It's not that so much as we fought hard and long and neither one of us was able to pull the trigger. We both tried vertical and horizontal scissors, energy tactics ... both of us working so hard we stalled out a couple times. Great, evenly matched fight. Salute to the pilot.
  6. Fought this guy a couple of weeks ago.. wish I knew who it was.

    In general its been slow to load but I have gotten a few "this page is not available" when clicking on a forum topic. Unable to connect at times
  9. As the title states. The lead/lag video was a good example of fighting with a plane of similar turning abilities as your own. With a poor turner like the La5 in this demo you just can't play the same game with a 109. You'll still use lead and lag with an energy fighter and use displacement turns with a good dogfighter when the situation dictates. If anyone wants the raw recording to see any of these training videos from different angles just ask. https://youtu.be/154u9FXZqoU
  10. You'll never sit behind someone that long in a fight. I passed up many opportunities where I would have been shooting. This is how to make those first shots count. The idea is NOT to sit in behind the bad guy in a sustained turn. There's no point in shooting if the bad guy is so far under your nose you can't see. Go lead pursuit, close the range then go lag pursuit so you have a low deflection shot. This demo makes it easy to see how lead and lag help your situation close in but in those long sweeping high altitude fights it's often the only way to get a shot at all. Next I'll start training exercises in shooting itself.
  11. Stalls and spins. I see too many stalling out and spinning in. Learn to catch it early and save it. https://youtu.be/z0G71_K_ndM

    Watcha Got Cookin'?

    Temps are your guide I guess. Big differences between core temps or just high temps and you should do something. Mine was the stock cooler since 2012. Temps were 50's and up to 80 in game. Then I was editing a video and saw temps in the 90's. Bought a cooler (GAMMAXX 400) and installed that today. 37C at rest and 63 converting video. The old paste was poorly applied and quite hard, no doubt being baked on over the years. What do you see in the pattern?
  13. I'm trying to help out some folks when I see they could use some. This is an in cockpit view of how to use lead and lag pursuit. https://youtu.be/oN0BV_p-tJI

    Piece of Cake - 30 years ago

    Funny you should say that. I just finished A Good Clean Fight a few weeks back. Pop quiz: your engine is running so rough that you can't read the compass at all to tell what direction is home. Do you: 1. climb till the engine quits and glide home with a stable compass 2. look at the sun and guess at a heading home 3. immediately bail out near the German base you just finished shooting up I can forgive some things in the interest of a good story but doesn't the Tomahawk have a US style compass that stays stable unlike the early navy compass the Hurri and Spit have? Oh it gets better.... the Germans send out a motorcycle and side car to check out the crash site visible by a huge smoke column and find the pilot walking. They can't seem to figure out the way back to their own base they just left !!! so they get the British pilot to navigate back to base for them.. (he's a pilot right... so obviously he knows how to read a compass.. I guess the German compass needs a decoder ring or an enigma machine).. they notice nothing as he takes them miles and miles and miles back to the British base....... The entire book on audio is 21 hrs. I got more out of the 4 hrs of Fighter Pilot.
  15. Yes above and I hear good things about the TM T1600 as pretty good among the "affordable" sticks. No comparison to the latest gen of custom sticks.
