  1. Yeah, this is exactly what I experienced (apart from the ram... LOL... classic.) Will post a track also if it happens again.
  2. If it happens again I'll remember to record one but I didn't think of it at the time
  3. There's a private seaplane "lake" in my area. I've landed on the turf but haven't used the water landing since I don't have a seaplane rating. The "lake" is pretty narrow and looks kinda dicey to me. http://frazierlake.com/
  4. Badges? We ain't got no badges! We don't need no badges! I don't have to show you any stinking badges!
  5. For me, it's kind of like stats... nice to know but not on the top of my priorities.

    Next Up...

    Wait... wait... we're getting nukes? 😈 (referencing the cover photo). I seem to recall that we had that in IL2 46. Before anybody goes off...Yeah, I don't think nukes are in the works. I would probably give it a go even though I rarely fly single player.
  7. Well, here's a couple of my personal skins with field repairs. I decided to go with bare aluminum just for aesthetics. I doubt that they would have let them go bare (I wouldn't... I'd at least apply some primer. I've seen a drawing of a 109 that had a repair on the lower wingtip... I forget which one... and it had red oxide primer applied to the repairs). Both planes have a combination of full panel replacements and "scab" patches. And BTW, I'm an A&P mechanic with 25+ years of experience doing sheet metal repairs so, other than the bare metal, I don't think they are beyond the

  9. Hi Wulfkai' If you could give me an idea of what you would like (a simple drawing or some other graphic would probably be best) I can make the changes and post the dds file here.
  10. Regarding wood blades... MT propeller uses what they call "natural composite" blades which have a wood core with carbon fiber skins. These are modern props and I have personal experience with them since I work on Pilatus PC-12s. https://www.mt-propeller.com/en/entw/pro_blades.htm
  11. Not necessarily so: https://www.aopa.org/news-and-media/all-news/2018/november/pilot/singular-sensation https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Single-blade_propeller As I recall from my flying model airplane days control line speed planes often used single blade props. One of the reasons for multi blades (5 or more) is to make use of the increased engine power without having the prop tips go supersonic which reduces their efficiency as well as noise (that's what makes that loud "Brapp" on the T6 for example). Also, more blades means possibly better balance as well as more "be
  12. I never got a reply to this so I'm just bumping... can't hurt to ask twice.
  13. Can you give us the option of changing the hotkeys in the .ini? A squadmate doesn't have numkeys on his laptop. It would also be helpful to have some way of editing (adding) pre-typed messages. Thanks!
