  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-
  7. Great story---thanks for sharing, cheers-sf-
  8. Excellent throttle designs and choices GVL. Cheers-sf-

  10. Congratulations Requiem !! Well done, Cheers -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-
  12. Thanks for all these great skins HotWaffle. From a scale of 1 to 10 on the wow factor, they get a 15---- !!! Cheers -sf-
  13. Hey Bishop, Something I would check would be to go in the sims control settings and insure the left/right brakes correspond with the proper input, if not I would reset them. Other than this , as von_Tom suggested , I would check the cables on the pedals to insure they are plugged in properly. Also, have you checked the controls using the MFG configurator tool ( used for calibration ) ? If not I would do this also and if the cable connections are correct you may want to go ahead and recalibrate your pedals since you are in this program ( see last part of video titled Unpacking and Assembly MFG Crosswind Pedals ). If you have done all this and things are still not correct, the only other thing I can think of as a fairly new owner of these pedals is to ( as Milan suggested ) not calibrate these pedals using windows calibration. Good luck !! Cheers -sf-
  14. In regards to the MFG Crosswinds tilting, I can see how it can be possible for them to tilt and I can make them tilt by purposely sliding one foot off the pedals before the other foot, however I have not had any problem with this occurring while using them as I normally do. I have my set on a wooden floor with no mounts or velcro. Carpets may pose a bit more instability ( I have no carpet to test them on ). cheers -sf-
  15. Received the MFG Crosswind V2 this past Dec. 2019 ( very surprised Santa gift ). I feel comfortable fully recommending them. The price is fair for the high standard of construction and precision put into the design and Milan is a very nice gentleman who will reply to any questions you have on these pedals. Also, these were ordered from NC in the US and was received amazingly fast ( I believe it was within 5 days ). Also and very importantly, these pedals have a variety of adjustments to fine tune them for your individual taste, and as far as how they work, they are extremely smooth and very accurate with easy access to adjust tension as needed. I am very happy with these and will say compared to cheaper pedals, they will make a difference to your sim flying. Cheers--sf
  16. Thanks for the info Moach !!! Looking forward to hearing on your progress with your " CS inspiration project ". I just googled Crimson Skies with Win 10 and will be downloading and patching tomorrow---- cannot wait !!! cheers--sf--
  17. I am with catchhov----- at the time, Crimson Skies was a great deal of fun for me. It was a very creative piece with nice story line and you can't deny the immersive music. It would be really nice to have a new updated version of this game. -- cheers-- -sf-
  18. Keep up the artistic flow raiad. I immediately recognized your work as Paul Newman. Also, something I noted is the sort of silver bright aura you have around him. This aura depicts a strong physical and spiritual presence of which Mr. Newman absolutely had--- he was a very compassionate person, ( brilliant application here !!! ) Nice work !!! --sf--
  19. Hey BTB, Seeing that you reinstalled game it may have defaulted to " Simplified Engine Controls ". I would check your " Realism " settings in your missions. Make sure anything to do with " simplified controls " is unchecked, and also " Engine Auto Control " and " Auto Pilot " is unchecked. Good luck ! -sf-
