  1. Thank you VitMax! You did a great job explaining what the trim button is supposed to do! I’m sure this will clarify a lot of questions people, myself included, had about how exactly to use the trim button and what the AP is trying to do
  2. Yeah I get the pitch oscillations on my landings as well. I’m not if it’s the autopilot doing some stuff behind the scenes? I’ll have to test later today with all AP channels off and see how it behaves
  3. I’ll preface this by saying that before getting the Hind, I have zero experience with helicopters in virtual or real life. All of my experience is fixed wing. But as a big fan of Soviet aviation, I just had to get the Hind. And oh boy is it a challenge. My question is in regard to helicopter controls and how they behave. Not in terms of what the collective or cyclic do, I understand that. More so with the actual physical controls in the helicopter, collective/cyclic/rudder(called anti torque in the helo world?) I’ve seen various discussions about trimming helos in game and some of
  4. Really? In my experience the basket is steady as a rock
  5. Did a quick flight with the new update. Great job guys, the new AP behavior is great. Let’s just say my first trap was interesting! The burble effect is real! With HB leading the charge on wake turbulence and the burble, any plans on implementing the bow wave that comes off the nose and moves the basket during tanking? Is this something you guys could even implement? Or would this have to come from ED?
  6. I’m not 100% sure as I never flew the Tomcat in real life, but that is almost certainly wrong. The top part is turn rate, and the ball is the inclinometer (shows slips/skids). At least that’s how every other aircraft I know works
  7. I see what you’re saying now! I think we were saying the same thing just in different ways haha
  8. Yeah I understand that. I was just referring to wind having no effect on TAS. It doesn’t matter what the wind is once in the air since you’re moving with the air mass. Headwind, tailwind, crosswind, the plane doesn’t “feel” it. If you have 2 planes, both at say, 20,000 feet and same temperate and everything. Both are flying at an IAS of 250kts. Plane A has a tailwind of 100kts and plane B has zero wind. Their TAS will both be the same, only their GS will differ
  9. Can you clarify what you mean by it not accounting for wind? As far as I understand, wind has no impact on TAS. It’s GS that is affected by it
  10. Keep lobbying! Let’s get it as accurate as possible. If the HUD was worse in real life, then so be it. I took your advice and do my Case 1’s with the HUD off. Now if I try having it on I find that it does nothing but distract me
  11. Just curious, what are the quirks and ways it’s too forgiving currently?
  12. I’m just spitballing here, so I’m sure I’ll be corrected. But maybe the AWG-9 could only communicate to one missile at a time? Anyone try this in DCS, does the first Sparrow go dumb when a second one is launched?
  13. Yeah I thought that bit was interesting! I wish the other Tomcat progress reports were uploaded somewhere.
  14. Just wanted to share a channel I found on youtube that is a goldmine for old videos about all kinds of things. It's like going back in time, very cool if you are into history and how stuff was many many years ago. This channel happens to have a few old videos on the Tomcat with some great footage! Here are a couple of the videos I found. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5GgtkkQ6IN4&t=460s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vmAhZy4XvM&t=1514s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7VxMLS0nA0&t=223s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-mrFcsw-Ew&am
  15. Ok yup! That's it. As soon as some negative AOA gets on the jet the roll reverses. It feels a bit sudden, like a switch is flipped at a certain value and it just rolls the opposite way. I'm assuming this is correct F-14 behavior then?
