  1. I would be interested to know it too. That sounds like a wonderful upgragde and as far as I can tell it seems to be pretty straight forward, as long as you pick the right parts. anyway, I gues that as long as you keep the ratio between the two pulley close to the original, it should not make a huge difference but I could be wrong in there
  2. dude, you could be in for some funny technique in there around the curve. Would I have to do it, I would hesitate between 2 : either I cut thin pieces of mdf and make the curve with putty and sanding, or I try to kerf bending plywood. Note that I would probably choose the second technique as I am looking for a reason to test it. there are plenty videos around showing you how to do it and how to calcule it like this one : anyway, you inspire me and this winter might be the one I choose to put some work into making my own homepit. keep on with the good work
  3. hm... that's a good question but considering the way Luftwaffe was organised. there is not much more plane to cover if you don't count on prototypes and Wünderwaffen... anyway, here is my list : - DO-335! that was a BEAST and so out of the box design wise - He 177 for the same reason engine wise - He 162 I always found the volksjager so cute, and really interesting - Ar234 to have a nice fast bomber - He219 but we will have to have a nice radar implementation for night mission... so... but this might be one of the most gracefull beast you can find
  4. mostly american planes, and the spitfire IIRC
  5. ... nice way to kill the mood... dayum was I ecstatic for a minute... anyway, thanks for the info buddy
  6. euh... my steam is updating a 770mb update 😀😀😀😀
  7. what made this to be fixed for you? we were discussing this odd behaviour yesterday night with my squad, and a mate raised the fact that it was linked to FFB. we were all flying P-40 in which we observed the same behaviour, but I have to test the Cobra tonight to see if it's fixed for me aswel... anyway, I'll have a look at the bug report
  8. I would be se much interrested to have access to those wonderfull loading screens aswel. yesterday night I was playing in my career when my heart skipped a beat or two while the mission was loading, letting me drooling all over my hotas staring at those magnificents Me-262. so...
  9. duuuude, is that the "interallies monument" in Liege that I see on this image? The topography seems to point to that but just wanna check... BTW on a thursday I see my beloved P-38 in progress, I learn my hometown will be modelised on this HUGE map, and that the Schwalbe is almost done. And all that the same week MotoGP are back to business... it's gonna be hard to beat this one
  10. I am with OP and everyone else when it comes to the Tempest. I 've always been fascinated by its perfect mix of british style and mean looks. it might be as graceful as a spitfire but when it comes to ground attack it is as punching as a P-47. Add to all this a book I read when I was teenager from a belgian Pilot who came from the same city as I do and flew on typhoon, and you might see why my heart was beating when I looked at the planeset anouncement for Bp.
  11. j'ai perso le TrackIR4 (et donc 6dof) qui fonctionne très bien et ce comme au premier jour malgré ce que je lui fait parfois subir. coté de ça j'ai un MSFFB2 dans la cave, j'ai testé un X52 pdt un moment mais le manque de retour de force m'a fait retourner au FFB2. puis j'ai acheté d'occaz un g940 et je suis assez content. c'est sur que c'est pas le machin le plus fiable du monde, et j'ai moi aussi eu un fil cassé. mais étant donné qu'il n'est plus produit je n'ai aucun scrupule à lui mettre les tripes à l'air et fouiller dedans. j'ai remplacé les cables foireux du throttle, suivra la réduction du faible jeu dans le manche. l'intérêt est que c'est un hotas complet avec en plus le rudder et le FFB, ce qui est juste à mes yeux un rêve de simmer
  12. I manage to "cure" this issue. or at least it did'nt showed up lately. You just have to delete the input file and redo it from scratch. we all had to do it before on of the updates, and since then everything seems to be ok
  13. are you sure your HOTAS have the mode selector on 1? Requiem's profile is set up on the first mode so if you are on mode 2 or 3 it won't work unless you copy the mapping on those mode in the profiler.
  14. try to fiddle with the curves on the axis setting. once you touch any slider the diagram will invert itself.
  15. it depends of the answers to 2 questions : - what type of sims you plan to play? - how much you plan to spend on this? : let's assume you want to psend around 200$ and you prefer warbirds sim. then you would have to get a FFB stick first! for around 50$ you can have a second MSFFB2 which is just in my opinion the best FFB stick ever made. FFB is jst oustandingly good, and by far one of the most durable device I hve ever had. and for the rest of the money, you can have a rudder pedal like the saitek one. it doesn't cost that much and are far worth the money. with the money left, you can grab a Track IR V4. it is really one of the immersive stuff you could buy at the moment. Occulift rift seems to push it up to 11, but I don't think they will be ready anytime soon sim wise, I will definitely buy one of these as soon as I consider it ready, but I don't see it in the next year and a half. now if you have a bit more money to spend, you can look a different rudder pedals like Crosswind ones. they seem to be superbly finished. you could also look at a Track IR v5 which seems to be a reasonable uprgrade from the previous one. you could also spend it into some 2nd hand G940. as said they are not really reliable but easilly fixed. this is what I did and I don't regret it at all. Despite small quirks, it is the first and only FFB hotas ever made. and the rudder pedals are included!! now If you plan to play modern flight sim, FFB would be irrelevant and I would go for something else on the hotas side, like X-55 or else. but I would go definitely for the TrackIR
