  1. Man GVL is cranking out quite a few new designs. Best part of checking this forum ( for me ) is seeing his new throttle designs . As of now from what I have seen he has about any type design for your individual taste. Great job !!!
  2. Shadow11, If you haven't checked this , it may help. I have seen this to be a problem for some. In steam you may need to uncheck generic gamepad controllers, see link------ Steam generic controller problem cheers-- sf
  3. Very nice, I like the compact design and features of the RH Turbo. Thanks for all these variations in designs. Gotta have one of these soon, driving me craaazy !!
  4. Hey Sublime, This may help you a bit. PCPartpicker is a very good resource for building a pc and has many varieties of builds depending on your budget. You can also use them to help find the parts to purchase at a good price. Also, they choose the proper compatible parts for you that really helps for a first time build. pcpartpicker Happy building !! -S-
  5. This looks like a great read !!! I remember Frank Tallman when he was doing stunt piloting for movies many years back. Thanks for posting this read !!!
  6. Have loved watching your flying videos Motoadve. Also thanks for sharing them, some are very informative for real time pilots going into small/short & soft fields. I am very impressed with your flying skill and love the relationship ( if you will ) between you and the plane ( C-182 ), you have to know that planes handling exceptionally to do and go where you go. I have a couple of questions in regards to that very nice C-182 you're flying. Maintenance wise I was curious of how the nose strut holds up throughout these back country fields and river bed takeoffs and landings. I noticed on your intro an advertisement for McFarlane and I know they make very nice kits that prevent the infamous strut leaks these nose gears can have. Also, I was curious of how you avoid picking up debris from the ground during takeoffs that can nick the prop tips a bit. I was taught a long time ago when taking off from soft fields with lots of gravel and stuff that if you add power gradually you should be fine, however in some of your cases it does not look like you have much of a choice for that luxury although it may be that you are able to keep rolling up to the beginning of the take off roll enabling you to gradually throttle up. Also in regards to some of these strips that are not level, how do you handle a situation where the wind is favoring the uphill takeoff vs the downhill takeoff . There is an old rule of thumb to add 10 % takeoff or landing roll for every 2 kts of tailwind up to 10kts of tail wind, however this just looks like it doesn't quite apply all the time with all the places you go. Well, I hope you don't mind the questions, these have been sort of in the back of my mind while watching some of your videos and now with what all is going on I have time to finally ask. Thanks so much and if you are ever in Greensboro, NC shoot me a notification and we will treat you to a nice southern home meal. -sf-

  11. Hey cardboard_killer, In regards to the cams I believe it is up to personal preference. I like the cam that my mfg pedals came with, I do not notice the detent enough to change things out, it is just enough for me to feel where the center is . However as is shown, JimTM prefers the #4 cam so this sort of is the testament to this being a rather subjective preference. As far as switching the cams out, as JimTM says, it is very simple and there is no way you can mess things up ( watch the video Jim has linked ). I believe it will not damage anything if you want to put a small amount of lubricant on the cam roller, just don't over do, remember lubricants can attract dust so I would use a very light coat. Enjoy those new pedals !!! Cheers-sf-
