  1. Oh, a Krueger Merlin if someone backs it? I may pick up a key just to donate as a giveaway!
  2. Thanks, Klai! Great victory by the Red team. Much better coordination than last month. For those that may not see this in the DCS section, we’re making a name for ourselves, literally 🤣
  3. It's getting real in California. The "Tick" fire is just down the road from my house. Probably not an issue but not like I can do anything about it from Texas. https://laist.com/2019/10/25/tick-fire-agua-dulce-day-2-evacuations-closures.php
  4. You’ll really enjoy it. The only thing I think it’s missing is a large body of water for ship warfare. Which is unfortunate that everyone online wants a carrier battle. I wonder if the Syria map will be popular, for this reason. Looks like it’s time to get those WWII birds I’ve been holding out on.
  5. I saw Jabbers had an unboxing last week, too.
  6. I remember when he flew a charter for a group of Brits headed to Afghanistan, early in the war. Pretty sweet tail art. I used to ride my bicycle to K-mart with my weekly allowances saved up to buy a new Iron Maiden cassette. Something like 5-7 miles one way, between the ages of 7 and 12. Still my all time favorite metal band.
  7. Congrats, Jonne! Now, we’llmake sure to retrain the ground crew on properly changing a tire
  8. Thanks for sharing, Barton. I saw her about 8 years ago, in Tucson and one time sharing a runway at Brackett, near LA.
  9. Yeah, I'll definitely see it, even if the plot is soaked in "Hollywood", the settings and effects are amazing!
  10. I haven't really tested it, but the missing Revi and sight glass is annoying.
  11. I use the trim hat on the stick, so annoying, in my opinion. With all these options, the only one, I want (which would be a pain for everyone else) is to have the ability to assign the multi-engines 1-2-3 but have my single engines use the throttle I would use for #2.
  12. Here's mine, I think you can download it. https://www.dropbox.com/s/jkhu0cnx2295rfs/AC_300919-192438_R_bo_caterham_academy_lhd_ks_brands_hatch_indy.acreplay?dl=0
  13. The Piper Pawnees I fly are supersonic 🤣
  14. If I can walk out some extra cash after my upcoming trip, I may invest in a JetSeat. It’s unfortunate that IL-2 does not export the needed data, though.
  15. Yes, we get oxygen sounds at 3k meters, also. Did they use supplemental oxygen in WWI? Hypoxic hypoxia should be modeled, instead. Like when WWII birds get our oxygen systems damaged (although I never stayed up there long enough to find out).
  16. Based on calculated estimates of captured German aircraft in 1917, it was figured they could sustain 3-6Gs on the front spar and only 2-3.6Gs on the rear spar before failure. http://naca.central.cranfield.ac.uk/reports/arc/rm/350.pdf However, numerous pilots were reported as "falling asleep in the air", or suffering G-LOC in WWI. Untrained individuals can gray/black out around 3-4Gs.
  17. You can get more detailed information by some registry edits:
  18. According to High G Physiological Protection Training - AGARD 1990 (page 3): With that in mind, the engine for Flying Circus also encompasses the WWII aircraft, which pilots were trained in a relative fashion to modern G-LOC preventive techniques. My bigger question is, why does the FC damage model allow the wing spars to tolerate sustained G forces high enough to warrant this technique?
  19. Thanks all! It was a lot of fun, though frustrating well, more like challenging.
  20. Mind you, this was a well earned success after several not-so-successful sorties
  21. Meeting for (and streaming) some MiG-21 online combat with Klaiber in preparation for this Saturday's tourney. This will be "advanced" air to air tactics against technologically superior fighters and weapon systems. However, we'll be in TS and my server will be up for those that wish to practice in peace or have questions.
