    Right now only DCS. I currently own VRS Superbug, but I don't like Microshaft flight sim. I have BMS 4.5, but uninstalled it as it is a brain load when I am content with FA18 from DCS. I sincerely hope DCS will produce a FA18-E. I own Xplane11 but it is not installed. I've must have owned very flight sim that was made all the way back from Microprose F/A15-E Strike Eagle on an Atari 800XL. Flanker 2.0 ruled!

  1. Yeah... through time perhaps these things can be ironed out a bit. AI ya know.... At least it's better than what I was doing some years ago. The Carrier is a beaut! I'll take it.
  2. One thing that happens though is, I'll be coming n and call the ball... the LSO will just about every time say Power...POWER.... sometimes he'll say your left or your low... but often , by the time I will touch the carrier deck and about the time my hook snags the wire, the LSO states "Wave Off" He is often LATE. And repetitive. Can't very well wave off when the hook has as I put it in MIL power. The hook' s got me so maybe the LSO is .... "Wrong"
  3. I have read in the DCS manual regarding adding and modifying key commands in attempt to assign my Sys RQ screenshot key to my FA18 Button 12 stick button. I cannot seem to change or modify that Sys RQ key command in DCS at all. I can either choose default or remove it. I also noticed too on my Keyboard my screenshot print key is labeled PRT SC. So maybe I have a hardware issue and need a keyboard that matches the Sys RQ key so then I can access it on the DCS menu in control settings? Someone told me to use joy2 button but I couldn't figure that out at all. The flight stick button I
  4. Is it possible to assign the PRT SC key to another location in DCS to do a screenshot during game play?  I truly wish I could assign my TM FA18 #12 button to take screenshots. I use the spring slider which is 11 and 13 to zoom in and zoom out. I always thought it would be really cool to zoom in or what not, and then be able to press the slider on the FA18, which is #12 on the TM stick to take a snap.  So this way I don't have to reach up and press the keyboard. But in control settings that key command seems fixed and not optional. 

    It would be a cool way to hit screenshots.

    Thanks

  6. I was in the same boat as you my friend. I have been a Warthog fan ever since it landed on the market. It's is still the A10 and beautiful. For an F18 I went with TM's FA18 stick since I'm a fan. I replaced the Warthog's black gimbal spring with the Green one from "Warthog Extensions" + I added the 20cm stainless extension piece and now my flight stick has travel that is like butter. No sanding, no 767A grease needed. (which is a good procedure if you choose that method),... I can pull my stick over and it will just sit there "360", and not even move. Now any little input I do, the more ac
  7. I was reading NATOPS for the FA18 C-D. The NATOPS for E-F versions too also state in sections III-8-3 (I never knew why the NAVY just couldn't use Chapter-Page),but... it states 8.2.5 Before CAT hook up, Before taxi onto the catapult it mentions about gross weight and adjusting trim after pressing the trim button for a hands free launch. The trim is supposed to be adjusted for proper AOA coming off the launch? When we run through the system cold start and we set the trim , then we conduct that test that works our flaps and functions.. should we also then be adjusting our trim and looking at a
  8. Thee ole "See ya at 10 Trick eh" Works every time
  9. Sorry... looks like I fly the forum here about as well as the assigned holding pattern.
  10. Thanks. I also downloaded and watched that Case III Radio coms video from Wagner. This seemed to also help me with what I think was my main problem ,as I was not flying the correct holding pattern. And keeping the correct range altitude and time assigned in a sense. I was doing it all wrong. I was flying straight in. Wagner's video seemed to break it all down in sequence and it all seems to make a lot more sense now. Seems like maybe too, it wasn't explained like the video he put out compared to what I was reading. I'll work on it. Thanx!
  11. This is very cool! The carrier itself is also very cool. Best out there in it's classification! I remember LOMAC and how everyone for years wanted "Flyable Hornets". Now look what we have and what's being made. That would be cool too , if we could just wander through the whole ship and conduct "Engineering Rover watch". Just kiddin. Maybe even attend public Captain's mass in the hanger bay? Or a tour through DC Central or the ship's machine shop. Maybe too, some CHT tanks that would overflow.. Seriously though.... is it just me... because I sit and take snapshots of this bea
  12. I know what you mean. The music too for the Hornet reminds me of Iron Eagle IV. But.... This carrier WIP is something I've wanted for 20 years. I remember in LOMAC when there were "Hornets". And everyone was asking.. "Are they flyable" and ED said "No" I remember writing them a respectful email and told them how I really enjoyed their work all the way back to Flanker 2.0. , and how there was such a demand for a Flyable Hornet. They respectfully responded back and said that they would like to create a Hornet, but it is classified and at that time they could not and they also reminde
  13. Well.. I tried it again, Case II. From 21 miles out I hear "Switch Approach. What's that? Then 10 miles out I check in. Come in straight... no opportunity to call the ball after ILS and TACAN and needles are perfect.. Where's the LSO? If I land I'll get "No communication no grade, I bolted through like Dhuntman was talking abut, circle around, Get a switch approach message again... I choose "Commencing anyway"... I land without any LSO directive or call the ball opportunity...and I get a grade. Am I doing something wrong? Maybe if I create my own mission it will respond differently?
  14. Page 57 states : For a CASE II recovery, you will radio “see you at 10” when the aircraft is 10 nm from the carrier just as on a Case I recovery. Radio control is transferred from the approach controller to the tower controller. At this point, the pilot performs an overhead break and landing. No Case I holding stack is required. Out from 10 miles I report in 10 miles out and I even pass by the starboard side of the ship at 800ft out at about a mile then break left and start my descending, keeping it within about 3 miles of the carrier... But all I get is radio op
