    Any and all things aviation. Im an A&P mechanic with an IA. Private pilot but no medical cert. Havn't flown as PIC for about 10 years but frequently go up for test flights after maintenance.
    Got a 2000 Moto Guzzi and love riding. In a past life, I was a glassblower / glass artist / educator.

  1. In that vein, see my posts toward the bottom of this thread: https://forum.il2sturmovik.com/topic/73011-is-upgrade-from-1080ti-to-rtx3080-worthwhile-for-vr/ If it looks too good to be true... it most likely is.
  2. First one and 3 months later the second of mine died. No physical evidence of why... flexing wires had no change. Oh well... over 5 years old and relatively inexpensive. Another two on order but 1 week out.
  3. Pretty basic at this point but has clickable functions. Has promise.
  4. I'm checking it out.
  5. I've read all of the Patrick O'Brian novels. Took more than a year. I too really like the movie but it didn't come near matching the expanse of the novels. It's but a fraction of Captain Jack Aubrey and his friend, naval physician Dr Stephen Maturin's adventures and relationship.
  6. WOW... I just got a "Conversation Starter" badge!
  7. He does a good job explaining how to set it up. I've modified the one I've been using for years and it's much better now. I was doing it all wrong...
  8. My understanding is that one major advantage to boom over drouge is the much greater pounds per hour transfer rate in boom.
  9. Since there's no tournament going on Saturday, I'll probably be doing DCS during the normal time (11:00 Pacific). I'm working on the Mirage but will gladly fly anything else.
  10. I'm one of them... still trying to figure it out.
  11. For some reason the last part went much quicker... it's done! Took about 1.5 hrs.
  12. An hour into it and only about 40% done.
  13. DDR MiG-21s. Interesting to note how smooth the take off rotation and lift off is compared to the DCS "leap off". I also saw several landings with the speed brakes deployed. Something I was told not to do. Oh... great music eh?
