    "Hang" Gliding - When it's not your time to die

    Deep end of the pool for you kid.....................

    Which DM do you like more - before 3.008 or after?

    After reading through several pages of comments the general consensus, not necesarilly my own, is that large caliber/HE weapons still need an Up Tweak but the rest seems very favorable. I'm pretty happy with the update and don't mind having to sink a few more rounds into an opponent to get the kill. Then again, I enjoyed the challenge of flying our original 190 FM during EA. Call me a weirdo if you must Edit: As motodave says above, aerodynamic performance loss does need to be revisited at some point. Thank you again, however, for strengthening the airframes and the main spars in particular. Much more realistic.

    The gamer vs the sim/history buff P47

    Sure but one incident does not make a very good sample size. There is luck and probably skill involved. That kind of damage and the shock of the impact plus other factors may make that very same aircraft an operational loss, in the hands of a different pilot, to be discovered in the nearby woods forty years later. Or even the same pilot and a difference of a couple of degrees on the impact angle. So, far, as a "pilot" in this game I have nursed back aircraft in horrendous shape on numerous occasions and also been one-shotted about 1% of those times I am hit. I think this game models the randomness of damage pretty well. I fly Luftie almost exclusively and do not have the complaints of many about pilot kills/headshot deaths, weak 109 tails or being de-winged. Maybe it's skill, maybe it's luck, maybe it's some combination of those.

    Hey Fellas, doe's BOX support full motion sims..?

    That’s not exactly how that conversation went. Jason asked for the other compny’s API to check for compatibility and licensing concerns. They told him, no, send us yours and it stagnated from there.

    American and British Voice "Actors" Needed ASAP!!

    That's weird, everyone says I have a FACE for radio........
  6. Agree completely. My CH pedals lasted me a dozen years and I only replaced them for increased fidelity. I still sit own my original set and they are perfectly functional. I'm not specifically recommending Crosswinds. I'm just offering the pro's and con's of toe brakes as well as a compare and contrast of how functional anti-torque pedals are in a variety of sims.

    How should I manage that new Turbocharger ?

    Exactly! 47 has both as it has been explained to me in another thread.
  8. So, after six pages, I see the new DM is both a fabulous technical achievement as well as an outrageous affront to mankind........

  10. Then what would we do with ourselves. I mean, really

    Probably updating to 3.008
  12. And my point is; more than half of our BoX aircraft, almost all of DCS and any civilian flight sim will benefit from toe brakes. You can use aircraft pedals without significant compromise for helos but the opposite is not necessarily true. The choice is up to the consumer but one should go in with their head up and know what each product does and doesn’t offer.
  13. Yeah, the new tankie examples (last week) were not lighted as well as the pilots but holy cow. The pilot examples looked like a Hollywood costuming photo.
  14. Excellent, thank you. Goood thing you have a military controller. My local guys would have a word about your “curvy” base to final turn
  15. I fly helicopters for real and the above quote is from a site trying to sell you something. Take it with a large grain of salt. I fly DCS helos with my Crosswind’s just fine, although I do take my heels out of the cups and use toe pressure (on the whole pedal) as described in the article.
