  1. Hi Sokol The adapter to mount the Warthog onto the VKB FBM base I have (FBM Mk III) just looks to me like a plug adapter. I'm not doubting what you say for a minute I know how knowledgeable you are and you've provided me with a lot of help on several occasions However I went onto the VKB Euro web page and I now see that the Warthog adapter incorporates some form of electronics The adapter for the older FBM I have has a different plug between the stick and base to the newer models. I think its 5 pin and the new ones are 3, but not 100% on the details, the older adapter looks similar to the picture but does not come with the electronics package. I already have the adapter to mount the Warthog onto the VKB FBM & I have the Mongoose on order. My plan is to try to find a way to mate the Mongoose to the VKB FBM. If that's not possible then I'll mount the Mongoose on the Warthog base and transfer the Warthog grip to the VKB FBM base. I might eventually purchase the Mongoose base, but I really like the sound of the VKB Gunfighter base with the friction clutches. For the moment I'm going to wait to see what the reviews say for the Mongoose base and also hold off on the VKB Gunfighter base until VKB announce a decent "jet" type stick. I want the buttons, hats etc: for a HOTAS setup, the WWII sticks are just too limiting for me. It's a shame as there are some great products out there but there is just not enough compatibility between them. As you rightly state "Russian Joystick Bonfire of Vanities" Many thanks for the response appreciated
  2. Sokol I'd be interested to know why you think the Mongoose won't work with the VKB electronics. The VKB FBM stick I have has the option of an adapter so that a Hog stick can be mounted onto it, which I'm sure you're aware of. The physical side apart if the Hog can be connected to the FBM base and the Mongoose is compatible with the Warthog base why do you think the Mongoose would be incompatible with the FBM base. Maybe I'm oversimplifying it and don't understand, but I'd appreciate your input
  3. They look absolutely super to me Peterla Thank you so much
  4. Oh I do like that Yo Yo, I'll second please, please please
  5. Peteria That's 2 nice 190 skins you've teased me with
  6. Sketch Many thanks Sir, that was a very generous thing to do and so quickly too If I was you I'd just watch the opening sequence, the bigger the screen and sound system the better
  7. What a GREAT idea I am soooooooo old that I went to see it with my uncle when it came out at a big cinema with PananVision or something, it was a great big curved screen and big sound system. When the opening sequence came on with the 52 flying through the mountains I was awe struck I was just not prepared as a young lad for the assault on my senses that it produced. My jaw may well have dropped too I was quite literally struck dumb and stunned Thought the rest of the movie was pretty pants mind, at the end did they not have a helicopter as I recall? I'd still watch it just for the few seconds of that opening sequence
  8. That is a nice scheme Chandalier Hopefully one of the group who specialize in this field will chime in
  9. Apart from the makers somebody else somewhere had templates for BoS at least All the official skins were posted up a long time back as a package for anybody who wanted them. They were removed from the board PDQ and deemed as cheating. Personally I think some people take this flight simm m'larky just a bit too seriously
  10. Oh an Italian skin luvely Many Thanks Jade that is a cracker
  11. Looks pretty dammed neat to me exactly as it is Spektre. I'm not so sure about the stripes, but I have no idea exactly what you have in mind. Nice and thanks for sharing
  12. Fantastic Spektre Thank You so much
  13. You are a star Panthercules My comment on the P/Panther was not because of any dislike but simply I thought it might be your own heraldic device. Many Thanks for sharing the skins not to mention your time effort and artistic skills
  14. Loving that skin Pantercules, any chance or removing your personal device and issuing a version for the rest of us. I really like the Anti Shipping tail device of the anchor, the ship kills on tail and the general overall design and color of that skin PRETTY PLEASE
  15. Awesome Zargos Merci beacoup
  16. Jade These are awesome Thank You Still await with anticipation your 110 skins in a similar sort of ilk
  17. Iceman You are simply awesome, thank you thank you, thank you for all you have contributed to this game and the pleasure you have given me all for nothing If you are ever in my neck of the woods the beer/coffee/food is on me sir
  18. That's mental.........BUT FANTASTIC!! I never touch the out there fantasy skins but that I do like Thank You
  19. Dammit all How come all the skins I think are really cool are always WIP!!! Only kidding that looks like another real cracker there Boomerang, looking forward to seeing it being wheeled out the hanger
  20. They are cool I like dazzle and lozenge, personally I could not give a jot about historical accuracy
  21. Couple of shots over the water that I thought turned out quite well

    FW 190

    Interesting, thanks I wonder if the the big radials in general were less of a handful regrading torque? If a significant amount of the torque is being generated due the crank it kind of makes sense, although I thought that most of it would come from the prop itself........................however that's an ASS-umption

    FW 190

    I agree jcomm & I'm no real shakes as a pilot or an expert on the 190, even though it is my go-to aricraft. I have great difficulty with the spins and the way the 190 seems to snap into them with little warning. It seems a very different bird recently but that could well be me. One more thing I found odd was the lack of rudder input on take off to counter torque, which I'm pretty sure used to be present but now is much reduced and I'm stabbing both left and right on the rudder as she rolls along the runway. Before as I remember it was a hefty rudder input which was reduced as speed and rudder effectiveness increased
  24. Borys Thank you That is a beaut, of course being a Brit I'm a bit biased
