  1. Just overhauled the Spitfire Mk IX and P-51D Mustang guides. Lots of new stuff in there, also applicable to BoX as well.
  2. The one on Sherbrooke? Never had the chance. I think my all-time favorite spot in town was Che Churros. Those churros are amazing.
  3. Depends how you learn. Not sure what you mean by pedantic (I typically stick to the strict minimum and list the optional checks as, well, optional)... but you're entitled to your opinion. I do disagree with you though. Some video tutorials are great, but there are tons of them that are just terrible for someone that hasn't already sunk 300 hours in DCS,. The bad ones have people do an air start and have the cockpit almost already set up, missing a bunch of steps that a cold & dark start require.

  6. My question is related to before any attempt to start the engine is even made, not the starter system itself. You have a few illuminated gauges in the cockpit... that electrical power must come from somewhere.
  7. Hi folks, I've begun to study the Hawker Tempest Mk V for fun and I was wondering about something. During the automated start-up sequence, at the very beginning the voltage seems to go from 0 to a normal battery voltage. However, there is no battery switch nor generator switch in the cockpit.. so my question is: what exactly provides this voltage pre-start-up? The documentation I found explained that the generator was automatic, however I don't know if the aircraft "engine off" power was provided with a ground power unit or with LRUs (Line Replaceable Unit) located in t
  8. So... I was wondering if there was an interest for guides for Western planes.
  9. A few new things during the last few months Major overhaul of the Mi-8, Harrier, Mirage and Tomcat guides Added JF-17 Thunder Added F-16C Viper Added P-47D Thunderbolt
  10. What fuel loadout are you taking? You may be too heavy.
