  1. I've had quite a few hours now on the stick now. Lately I've also felt "roughness" and some noise on the Y-axis. It felt a lot like the cams would be not smooth but it has actually been the spring. Like with my VKB T-Rudder where the spring was giving noises, I've added grease on the MT-50 base springs and everything is silky smooth again. :joystick::)
  2. Not DCS, but take a look at VPC MT-50 & VKB T-Rudder in action :joystick:
  3. I forgot to review my wife's covers, they are great too!...
  4. Hello everyone! I've been away from DCS and these forums for a while as my focus shifted towards RL glider flying & Condor. I would like to share my experience and give some tips for the VPC MongoosT-50 Base + Grip, the Warthog, and the VKB-Sim T-Rudder Pedals Mk.IV. The experience:joystick: The main reason I have acquired these controls is to do and simulate the experience of . In the past (2002-2017) I have been using the X52/Pro & Pedals from Saitek for . These controls do the job well being light and controllable, but it just doesn't come close to the flight control
  5. The real Russian Knights and many other real jet teams fly formation aerobatics with maneuver entry and cruise speeds between 700 and 900 km/h. I have doubts though about the enormous thrust you get at 80% in the simulator. It makes the usage of the airbrake required to fly formation at slower speeds. Anyway forget about the slow maneuvering speeds we used to fly in FC2, they are not realistic and just required because of the extreme sensitivity the jets had at 650km/h and above. Oh and, throw the jet full of fuel, it will fly fine. :thumbup:
  6. Can anyone explain to me why the jet wants to rollout all the time? :)
  7. Might have been discussed somewhere else before, though couldn't find it.... what about the eager of the Su-27 to roll horizontal by itself?
  8. Respect for you ED guys, after creating a PFM, having to defend it is real all the time :D :thumbup:
  9. Yeah, that still seems to be a bit off to me too Nedum. Lets see what happens after some updates. :)
  10. Ok, I have to come back on this, with some new findings after flying more and learning about the nozzle thanks to Esac_mirmidon :thumbup: On throttling up the nozzles go narrow @ 78%RPM, but on throttling back they go wide again at 72%......so, as long as you don't throttle all the way back below 72%, you have reliable thrust! Also, loading up the plane full of fuel helps as you work on higher throttle settings during flight. I'm very happy to have learned this, enabling to fly loops and rolls in a nice and stable formation yey! :thumbsup:
  11. Well, thanks everyone for your input and Yo-Yo for the detailed explanation. I hope our findings are brought under attention by the develop team. If it turns out to be real, then so be it, if not I hope to see changes in future updates. :)
  12. Then I wonder why a manufacturer would make an aircraft with such poor thrust control at speeds lower than ±650km/h or below 80%. I just don't believe that is true. The SFM is history, I'm not comparing it to how it was. @Joe Kurr & mvsgass Flying formation is all about working the throttle, ANY aircraft, and it has nothing to do with the new flight modelling.
  13. We might have two issues here, rolling resistance and non linear thrust
