    I use the mouse. For DCS I believe it’s in the Settings>VR, something like head as cursor or mouse as cursor?

    I am getting old and giving advice.... heh heh... sorry. Just FWIW it seems to me that internet scammers are getting more common and more capable. I just tried to sell furniture on Craig's List in DFW and was instantly contacted by a scammer, they got nothing and I am assisting the people that work to bust this sort of thing. Next, I know some of you guys build models, I got pinched for about $70.00 by an outfit called INTERNETHOBBIES.com and you can google them and see all the other people that have been screwed as well. Bottomline is before you do business with a new place, regardless, take a moment and check them out online. We have been spoiled for a lot of years by doing internet business, ordering etc and dealing with honest people... and I think that is really starting to change.

    The scammers are getting smarter. I am convinced if they put 1/2 as much effort into making a living as they do into scamming they could probably make a decent life for themselves.

  10. First time I ever saw an H-34 variant was the The Screaming Mimi on Riptide (an 1980s TV show). Anyone else remember that? Or is it just me? This is back in the day when the opening credits were almost 1/4 of the show.

    Kameraden, The cable on this unit is much longer and heavier that my Oculus unit. I picked up a ceiling suspension system as it was driving me mad catching on my seat. Hope this fixes the issue as it's pretty annoying. I picked up the Kiwi Design Silent VR cable management system, it means mounting it above myself but right now it's a big problem catching on my chair. Back to reading more to fine tune in DCS. S!

    Hey, doing stupid and dangerous things is what makes us human... Imagine the first person to look at a horse and think, I bet I can ride that. There had to be a bet involved. Or women were watching. Or he was just drunk. Or all of the above.

    I actually figured out why I wasnt able to fire the outboard rockets, I was suffering from a near terminal case of cranial-rectal impaction. On the Mirage you can select which pylons are active. I forgot to select all 4 pylons

  20. With the CH Control Manager program no longer supported, I’ve ditched my CH multifunction panel which also hasn’t been supported in years and relied on Control Manager to function. I’ve ordered a Thrustmaster MFP Cougar pack as a replacement. Looking forward to trying it out.

  21. ~~Salute!~~ Just wanted to take a minute of your time and brag about a group of friends who have been flying flight simulations since 1992: The Wing Walkers (virtual) Combat Squadron. It's been my distinct pleasure to be a member of the WW's for 99% of that time... While I wasn't one of the few who started the squadron, I was part of the first rounds of recruits to join a couple months later. I am also one of the few remaining from the 1992 era who is still actively part of the squadron. Earlier this month the WW's had their 20th Anniversary "Get Together" in San Diego, California. The center-piece of the WW Get Together was enjoying the MCAS Miramar Air Show. Once I get our site's gallery issues figured out, I'll have links to hundreds of photos from the airshow and other events and venues we visited while in San Diego. For now, you can browse manually through the various contributor's folders on our web space here: http://www.wingwalkers.org/vault/2012_SanDiego_Gathering I wanted to highlight a couple things... First, a group photo of the attending Wing Walkers members: Back row, l-r: Tom "WWGeezer" Emme; Peter "WWPierre" Legere; Dan "WWPlague" Strayer; Monte "WWSandMan" Lewis; Ron "WWChunk" DeRespini Front row, l-r: Jay "WWDubya" Stein"; Ron "WWSpardog" Street; Erik "WWFlybert" Aamot; John "WW8Ball" Fesler Missing the "Get Together" after making plans and reservations, but real-life health, employment and/or family issues made it impossible for them to attend, Tom "WWHappy" Madron; Ian "WWWringer" Smuck; Brian "WBrian" Sawyer; Pat "WWTaco" Mesich. ~~~ Tom "WWHappy" Madron was awarded the prestigious "Art Stacy Memorial Award", commemorating the life and friendship of Art "WWKat" Stacy, who was the first WW member to have passed away. This award is given to the active WW member who best represents the ideals and philosophies of the Wing Walkers squadron. It is the highest honor amongst the WW squadron members to be presented with the Art Stacy Memorial Award. For WWHappy, it was a well deserved and well-earned honor. We have a video of the award ceremony, such as it is, recorded during our visit to the 94th Aero Squadron Restaurant in San Diego. As a plug for the restaurant, if you have an interest in WW1 history (and of course in fine dining!) then this is a "must see" spot in San Diego. Low quality .wmv file of presentation speech of the Art Stacy Memorial Award to WWHappy (in absentia) (I hope to get a high-quality version posted to YouTube soon) ~~~ A special part of the Get Together this year was meeting Chris "WWFalcon" Herr in person... Chris is an active duty U.S. Marine Corps RQ-7B operator. Chris first joined the WW's when he was 16, demonstrating a maturity level beyond his youthful age (the WW's generally don't consider applications from folks under 18). Chris was, and is, a very good combat simulation pilot... and we like to think that his success in the Marines as an RQ-7B operator was at least partially due to his time spent flying with us. Well, it sounds good any way... Here is Staff Sergeant Chris Herr, U.S. Marine Corps: ~~~ As a final note our current Commanding Officer, WWTharn (a musician at heart), put together a heart warming original musical tribute for the WW's 20th Anniversary... For any online gaming group/clan/squadron/unit who do most of their group activities via TeamSpeak, Ventrillo or any other real-time voice communications method, this song will certainly feel 'real'. Friendly Voices, by WWTharn (.mp3 file) Here's looking forward to the next 20 years of flight simulation! Cheers!

    We actually tried to do this a few years back in the MiG-21! :D We picked the longest runway on the Caucuses map. And then did our best. Barton and I were able to accomplish it. But it took a while... I’ll see if I can find the thread.

    It is a fun jet, a real joy to fly. The issue is getting airborne. With its anemic engine & the payload you see it took the better part of a 6000ft runway to get enough speed to get airborne. On a positive note, throttle management is easy. Leave it firewalled until you are ready to land!

    No rust to be found here... My bombing was even pretty solid. No mean feat doing it using compression angles. Low level bombing is all about speed & sight picture though.

  29. Guys we switched it back to VVS AI for us. You are still welcomed to join, just no pvp in the air. If someone wants to augment the VVS air cover by flying VVS it will spice up the mission, but I've got a lot of ground flak fire and AI VVS fighters in the area, so it's not a big deal if we don't have pvp in the air. Thanks

  42. There are lots of interesting technical questions and explanation of procedures regarding Mig 21 and 23 and the inner working of a squadron. He was part of the Aerobatic display team so he got chance visit air shows in the west with Mig 23 and some unusual flying experience for a Cold War pilot like flying the Mirage F1B in example. Later are there questions and explanations of workings of Engine, Radionavigation , Autopilot, Weapon system. The info is just pouring out of that guy. I guess after so much hours flying that stuff is just hardcoded in his memory. The subtitles for the entire video should be done by end of July.

    My wife and I went up to a hill to watch all of the fireworks in the whole valley. Half a dozen other cars up there but got a good spot. Was a good time, although some of the local city fire departments were having a hard time keeping up with the calls.

  46. Just fell into this deep-dive playlist with my renewed interest in the Mi-8, due to the impending Mi-24 release. It's a refreshing series that goes a lot deeper than the majority of YT content. It doesn't just show you how, but why.

    A little change of pace from my usual stuff... Racing around Circuit de la Sarthe. At night. In a monstrous Group 5 Kremer Porsche 935 K3. In a gaggle of Le Mans prototypes. This may well be the most epic automotive video I've ever seen (and I'm not even a Porsche guy!). If you're a petrolhead then it's an absolute must-watch. Our JG1RT members will love this.
