  1. Good for you OM, have always enjoyed racing with you.
  2. I have been using the Microsoft VR for a year, and I got the Oculus about 3 months ago... they are fine for racing, but I am going back to Track IR for flight sims. They are lots of fun to fly around with, but the penalty of not being able to see behind me is just too much. The VR is WAY more immersive... Heinrich, I know what you mean... I CONSTANTLY try to put my arm on the coaming of the race car and simply is NOT there.
  3. Hey Mike, That would be the correct solution.... unless Virpil was to do the right thing and make one long cable for us that use a full length floor mounted stick. I can't describe how wonderful that is.... it really put me back in the cockpit of some old planes.... all you need are the smells and funny feeling you get from worn out springs to make it all real. I will leave it alone though... the one thing I learned is never wake a sleeping baby... so as long as it is happy, I am happy. I know you have fought that thing from day one.... sure sorry to hear that the battle continues... I just bought a new machine dedicated for the flight sims so I hope to be back in FC and DCS and BOS in the near future. I love CLOD it is just too much fun and really good practice 24 hours a day, so once I am setup again with buttons etc, I hope I can get into those three. I actually have some days off this week... what a shock... we are so short handed at work... they just keep shoveling money at the young guys to quit us and go fly for them they can't turn it down which leaves us sucking vapors at a time when they are turning out more new jets than ever before. We are booked solid for the entire next year. OH well.... look forward to getting in some old style practice with you as we managed to do so many years ago old friend. LL
  4. If Virpil would ever offer that cord in a 20" or 24" length I would be pleased to buy it. It took me several tries to get my connected and stay connected within the tube.
  5. You drove a good race, best part was the avoiding head on traffic on lap 10.
  6. Pretty stupid of me...... but I have not looked at FC in about a year. I bought that and was getting the airplanes... so.... do I have this or is this another add-on that must be purchased?
  7. We had another guy leave and take a job which puts us further behind. I get a real bang out of these articles that say the "pilot shortage" doesn't exist. They are welcome to stop writing for a couple of weeks and come take my schedule. 🙄 I get to drive once in a while for maybe 45 minutes, I miss it... just enough to say yeah... I remember this... this was fun.... I bought the F-14, pre-ordered and have started the program once to see that it is really there. Yup.. it's there.
  8. I hate Hollywood... I think every time you buy a movie ticket it should be deductible on your income tax as a donation to the DNC. I went through training last year with a real F-14 instructor that was at Miramar when they were filming the first one and he didn't have an ax to grind... said that a few guys got to have some fun that they would not have had otherwise because the movie called for some extra duty flying, and they were all up for that.... also some general stick time without having the same pre-scripted missions, so it was a change of pace. Said that Cruise and Edwards were OK guys and that Edwards was the only one that didn't hurl out of the whole cast. Did have some really surprising things to say about Kelly McGillis… and if you have seen her lately... you can pretty well project that she won't be appearing in the film... ( OUCH ) On a lighter note.... what a guy... one of my students last week was a Hornet driver for about 8 years... and that crazy goof-ass just got into the USAF Reserves and is going to the A-10.... he has been sending me some pics and I have put him on to the DCS stuff and he was really knocked back by all that. Got a real kick out of the Hornet and showing me all the stuff that has changed... laughing about "yeah, I saw that and I knew guys that had that in their jet but they were gone by the time I got in" I asked him if the only reason he was going back in and to the hawg was just to get to fire the gun and he said yeah.... pretty much that's it..... I don't blame him. I didn't realize that it stabilized the flight controls prior to firing.... wow.... he said the gun in the hornet was really hard to hit, the gun in the A-10 is really hard to miss.
  9. The D.Va is my favorite of the whole bunch, lovely... just lovely... what a gorgeous machine. Extremely well done sir.
  10. Get a ride in a T-6 or Stearman...for about $250 - $350 just as good. When I was flying them we could not get people to give us $50 for gas much less the prices they get today.
  11. didn't work for me either, tried searching under the subject but found nothing
  12. Loudest #$%#$ing airplane in the world. Flew one from MSP to SFO for Doolittle's birthday... he was 90 I think... way back when. Every guy that ever flew one has one thing in common, they all left part of their hearing in the cockpit when they left.
  13. Hey Britchot, that's great man.... glad to see another car on the track.
  14. No I am lucky to have the Michelangelo of car painting doing all my custom work... no... not Earl Sheib…. Snaggle.
