    • Hi Charly:


      F/A-18 guide, Chapter 2.10 (Laser maverick), points 23 and 24: Your are saying to enable and use Laser Trig feature but:

      - Releasing trigger button laser goes off.
      - If you keep trigger pressed, then Weapon Release button does not work (maybe due it conflicts with trigger).

      Someone says this is just a bug, others that Laser Trig feature should be used for buddy lasing only, some others says that ED has changed something and your procedure is now outdated.
      In all the cases, in order to launch AGM-65E you need to activate LTD-R and then just press the weapon release button: this will fire laser and keep it on.
      I've tried that way and it works.

      Also, not 100% sure, but the same issue might occur on Paveway LGB usage too..

      • First and foremost; A huge thanks for providing such excellent and nice guides. I absolutely love using them for learning a new airframe.

        May I ask something for future versions (not asking for a full redesign of whats been released)?

        Background:
        Due to VR and lack of physical surroundings I convert many of the pages over to the kneeboard. Since the kneeboard is a portrait-mode page I snip mostly the left part of the pages, at a roughly 4:3 ratio.
        And it works great for most pages as I get the gist of what I need to remember in the procedures (for startup and like).

        Question:
        Would it be possible to try to keep the text on the left-most side of the page? This is quite useful for the content such as startup, which can be considered as 'checklists' but with better information (key bindings and other hints).
        It works nicely for 80% of the pages as I don't need the images in later stages.

        I know I can grab checklists from other places, but I do prefer the additional hints you have in the guides.

            • Hi folks!

              Last January, Eagle Dynamics dubbed 2020 to be the "Year of the Hornet". With a brand new air-to-ground radar, SLAM cruise missile and an updated LITENING II targeting pod, many sections of my Hornet guide became obsolete. Therefore, I eventually had to begin the very long and complex process of going back through everything and planning what had to be changed and what had to be added. A few hundred gallons of coffee later, there we are. We all know other updates will eventually come, but let's not think about it too hard for now.

              The F/A-18C Hornet guide update is now available! See first post.

              Changelog:
              (22/09/2020)
              • Start-Up procedure updated for INS update
              • Carrier takeoff procedure updated for Supercarrier
              • Radar acquisition modes clarified
              • ACM radar mods clarified
              • JHMCS operation clarified
              • Targeting Pod updated
              • Added AIr-to-Ground Radar MAP & Expanded modes
              • Weapon section re-structured
              • Updated JSOW tutorials
              • Updated JDAM tutorials
              • Updated GBU-12 tutorial
              • Fuel Dump clarifications
              • Master Modes clarifications
              • Engine section expanded
              • Fuel section expanded
              • AGM-84E SLAM tutorials added
              • MK20 Rockeye tutorial added
              • AGM-65 IR Maverick tutorial with tgp added
              • AGM-65E Laser Maverick tutorial updated
              • HSI (Horizontal Situation Indicator) section expanded
              • RWR symbology clarified (N, I, A, U, F)
              • Landing tips added (including HUD declutter and velocity vector caging)


              Overall, a lot of new stuff crammed in there... the page count went from 350 to 530+ pages. Once again, if you guys still have any suggestions, recommendations or corrections, please let me know.

                        • I couldn't get the link for the manual to work on this forum. If you have the same problem.
