  1. Woah! It's been a quite a while since I've been down to Martin's, let alone flown out of. Didn't know they were now operating Phenom's. Ugh, I gotta get re-qualified and pursue this.

    xplane XP11 - tips on using the sim?

    Like Noodle said, a more realistic flight/ground handling model. Wind, weight shift, and asymmetric thrust are more visually apparent now. View changing is LShift + 1-9 (and 0?), the arrow keys for moving up, down, left, and right. Move view forward is period and I think semi-colon for back. And if an aircraft has preset views, 0-9 on the keypad.

    There are 'some' trustworthy servers that are well moderated and run alternating missions. I sometimes fly on the Fighting 99th (F99th) which is usually populated in the evenings (US time). You usually want to look for the servers that provide Teamspeak information for total coalition communication. If you're looking for full regimented and moderated servers though, I would consider joining a squadron to gain access to private missions and team play. For learning in general, it's pretty easy to build a mission and make your own local server. Default port is 10308 so make sure it's forwarded in your router for others to join.

  5. Just watched the On Approach video. Looks like I'm now sold on Vegas as well, if I go. My potential issue with Expo is the unfortunate choice of date being SO CLOSE to E3.
  6. I too have been wondering similar. Is SimCon expected to be dead after this year? And is Expo the new trustworthy choice where the majority of people are intending to venture to (since most are only going to choose one)?

    Purchased it so fast, can't wait.

Friday: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/208000603 Saturday: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/208048628 Sunday: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/208668270 Our show at the end on Saturday suffered the most audio/video de-sync unfortunately due to uploading to an RTMP server in Paris with them sending it to Twitch. We published a local version of the show on our Vimeo. https://vimeo.com/247003673

  11. I believe both pilot and WSO. So far my favorite meme.
  12. Schedule has been released. See here: http://bit.ly/2AcjTOQ Website link: https://www.virtual-airshows.com/live/
  13. https://support.thrustmaster.com/en/product/hotaswarthog-en/ Download drivers, you don't need TARGET unless you intend to run any profile scripts. Make sure both throttle and stick are plugged directly into a back motherboard USB (preferably 2.0) port. After driver install just find Thrustmaster under start menu/programs and Firmware Upgrade. http://ts.thrustmaster.com/faqs/eng/thr_eng_00136.pdf
  14. Apparently the crew lost their wings because of this...
