  1. Eagle Dynamics, the makers of DCS World, DCS A10-C Warthog and Lock On: Modern Air Combat, has announced a brand new game. Called simply Modern Air Combat, it will include 14 flyable aircraft spanning conflicts during the Korean War to the modern day. The title is expected to launch this fall for PC and be compatible with modern virtual reality devices.

  2. Now I have to give you that one, certainly a consideration.

    real-world FlightSimExpo 2018

    I was stuck hauling around my luggage on Sunday. I did ask the head guy if next year they could have a room set aside for luggage drop off. He said he would lo into it.
  4. Just wondering, how many of you saw all you needed to see, heard all you needed to hear on Saturday and wish that you had flown home on Saturday afternoon/night? SOURCE INFO DEVELOPER POST LINK : NEWS SITE ARTICLE LINK :
  5. Word is that the developers of FlightSimExpo are talking about a different location in 2019. Perhaps a different location each year. I think that is a great idea. Perhaps some of us that flew to Las Vegas can drive to a different location in 2019. So where do you think next year’s Expo should be held. My vote is Orlando.

  6. HI all, Been using Wheelstand Pro Products for a while in particular the one shown below that hold the Saitek Peddles, Yoke and Throttles, see picture 2. But I was never satisfied with their way of holding a HOTAS. Recently they have developed a new product the Super Warthog Stand, see picture 1. What I like about it is the ability to move the joystick and throttles around. I can use it like shown in picture 1 to fly a plane with the joystick in the middle and throttles to the right or I can reconfigure it like the Airbus with the joystick on the left and throttles on the right. The stand will accept the following: Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals Thrustmaster T. Flight 4 HOTAS Saitek Pro Flight X-55/X-56 HOTAS Saitek Pro Flight X52 Control System Saitek Pro Flight X-65 MFG Crosswind Rudder Pedals Thrustmaster T. Flight Rudder Pedals - mounted with special bands - email mail them for the bands. The lady at the website is most helpful and will almost certainly return your email or phone call that same day.

  7. I think the concept is plausible.
  8. Is the following topic attributed to Froogle worth a discussion. Dovetail has the entertainment rights to FSX. Lockheed Martin had the rights for the FSX platform for use in training, etc. Lockheed Martin has two copies of Prepar3d for sale, the Professional version and the Academic version of Prepar3d at a much reduced price. When purchasing Prepared Lockheed Martin did not attempt to determine if the Sim was to be used in training or in the case of the Academic version, there no attempt by Lockheed Martin to determine the “Academic” status of the purchaser. Could Dovetail legally make a claim that Lockheed Martin made no attempt to determine how each copy of Prepar3d was to be used and therefore many copies were used for entertainment purposes, contributing to the demise of Flight Sim World.

  11. Just signed up for Flightsim Expo 2018. Look forward to meeting fellow Skyloungetv followers. How many people think that Skyloungetv should maintain a list of attendees for both conferences to facilitate meeting. LINK TO SOURCE:
  12. DCS World 2.5 update is near LINK TO SOURCE:
  13. You are so right. Once they completely work out the controls for VR, Aerofly FS 2 should be awesome.
  14. I have Prepar3d, X-plane 11 including the VR add-on, Flight Simulator World, Aerofly FS 2 and DCS. I have the current Flyinside VR add-on for Prepar3d. I am interested in being a part of the best, whichever it turns out to be.
  15. We are developing a next-generation flight simulator, and we'll be sharing our progress regularly via this website. We're looking forward to sharing our progress with the community, and we'll be paying close attention to your feedback. We aren't just building the right simulator for us, we want to build the best simulator for you! LINK TO SOURCE: http://flyinside-flightsim.com/
