  1. Just rigged my flight gear back up after almost five months and will be there tonight.
  2. This was a surprise birthday present, I had no idea that a random village near Zagreb hosts "one of Europe's most modern" helicopter simulators. The instructor was this great young guy who told me to "forget what I've experienced in games, this is a whole new level". To be honest, it was easier to fly this thing in this simulator with the big, long stick and pedals that trim properly, than it was to fly it in DCS on my stunted Saitek twisty stick. Of course, the "wow" mostly comes from the 6-dof hydraulics the whole thing is on, and although I haven't flown in a helicopter, given my expe
  3. They use those to ferry extraterrestrials from UFO crash sites to Area 51.
  4. Seeing that 402 skins are all taken, does that mean I'd have to move to 485th or can I stay in 402th and use a generic one? (I'd prefer staying in 402th if possible as I've always flown it up to now, but if it's too much of a hassle never mind)
  5. I flew the M2000C and F-16 a lot and both are relatively simple machines that I'd recommend as a first modern-ish, radar-equipped jet in DCS. Mirage pros: - easier than the F-16 - super quick and simple start up due to it being an interceptor - delta wing galore, this thing will go from light speed to stall speed within seconds after a hard turn - you're not just flying another american jet like everybody else - relatively simple radar (but more limited than F-16) Mirage cons: - only four pylons for air-to-air missiles, no Fox 3, no multi target capabil

    I-16 owners

    Is there a learning curve axis too?
  7. Had a great experience yesterday, everything went smoothly apart from a few barely noticeable stutters/rubber banding spikes. Radio was a bit chaotic at times but I've seen worse. If we get shot down during the mission to the extent that we need to consolidate comms into one channel, I'm sure someone can move us around in teamspeak. The game minimizes really well for me and I don'0t have VR, for me it would literally be a matter of 4-5 seconds. Thanks for the links Tom.
  8. I just did the same 5 min ago, I have the plane now so I'm in on anything concerning this campaign as long as I'm home (usually away on or around the weekends for 2-3 days, but flexible).
  9. The I-16 is certainly the most unique of them all, with its game-changing experience of turning the landing gear crank 44 times while flying a trimless torque galore aircraft with a screwed up center of gravity. More often than not it's a ground breaking experience.
  10. Mentioned this to Fen the other day, but I'll put it here as well. I have tiny requests for our DCS server so it offers more training options to any of us inclined to less popular craft: 1. Some blue ships we can blow up (WW2 and present) 2. Ka-50 on the craft list (it's absent as far as I can see), and any other craft that was possibly left out. 3. Some nice scaled ground target areas. I'm thinking 2-3 areas, for example a SAMless C&C/logistics area or road block, another with short ranged SAMs, as well as a moving convoy or two. (we already have SAM heaven in Abkhazia

    F-86 droptanks

    Just in case you thought Dakotas in the woods were out of the ordinary here. My friend's courtyard, two Sabre droptanks that he bought off some old bloke in the village for a few dozen quid. He plans to make a mini hydroelectric plant using them as floats for the water wheel.

    X-55 build quality

    Gutted my throttle yesterday to see if I can find out why the left lever's back buttons and scroll wheel only work 50% of the time. Here it is, all of its wires half-cut by internal superstructure due to lever movement. All fixed now after 3 h of jury rigging and trying to fit all of that + craploads of electric tape through the tiny opening of the bottom of the throttle lever. The white stuff is the throttle grease, I swear.
  14. Temporary home for my old Aviator stick's entrails until I can get my hands of some tools and materials and make something less awful. Canon M3 cardboard box. Basically it's a pretty imprecise trim station with some switches on the side which I mostly use for gear, flaps and weapons switches. This is what I flew on until late 2016 (I think) when I got the X-55.
  15. The only thing I ever flew for real was this thing in Iran in 2012, Zargan airfield, north of Shiraz. I think it's an Ibis Aricraft Magic 700 GS, but don't quote me on that. 90% stick time in the air, takeoff/landing hands on but the pilot actually did 90% of the input. I didn't even know the pilot would let me fly it. No pics from the air as the airfield is right next to Shiraz refinery, which was defended by manned AA guns They wouldn't let us bring cameras up as per regulations, but were otherwise extremely friendly. I might have a pic of me actually sitting in this thing pre-flight
