  1. Nice, I hope they do the camo version as well that looks no different than the US scheme.
  2. Just for those interested, would be nice to see a few FAA Skins...
  3. I can't see them on that site either. Pretty sure this is the one though, bottom right....
  4. I am hoping this is why they haven't put the version against the Mosquito in this sub. The TSETSE was also used against JU88s with success, so not just shipping
  5. You wouldn't need to change the control cables, at least not in my understanding, you just change the weight. It is a tough call, add a weight to tune the flight characteristics and ensure the integrity of the aircraft is maintained or remove it to allow greater manoeuvrability at the risk of damage to the aircraft.
  6. I was under the impression that there was a mass balance on the Bombers elevators that was removed from the Fighters? EDIT: Ah no seems that was a single pilot test that they did, see point 26. http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/mosquito/Mosquito-VI-tactical.pdf I wonder if the inertia weights on the fighter versions differed from the Bombers?
  7. The flight characteristics were drastically different between the two, perhaps they replaced the yoke to take advantage of that?
  8. The second to last camouflage was actually the Day Fighter Scheme and should never have been applied to a FB IV, the vast majority of which were delivered with the official Night Figher Scheme of Dark Green and Sea Grey Medium. It would be great to see some Far East Scheme.
  9. Having now read a few accounts of agents involved with the Joan-Eleanor Project the Americans use of the Mossie is fascinating. Can't imagine what it must have felt like for the poor chap strapped into the rear fuselage for the entire flight!
  10. This document suggest that the actual speed that could be achieved was 384mph. " All-out level speed is often given as 368 mph (592 km/h), although this speed applies to aircraft fitted with saxophone exhausts. The test aircraft (HJ679) fitted with stub exhausts was found to be performing below expectations. It was returned to de Havilland at Hatfield where it was serviced. Its top speed was then tested and found to be 384 mph (618 km/h), in line with expectations." http://www.wwiiaircraftperformance.org/mosquito/hj679-dh.pdf It also appears to be with external wing tanks so 371
  11. I am using one with my G2 and a i5 6600K @4.5GHz and it is working relatively well, I can get 45fps re-projection on my G2 with the settings at a reasonable level. The G2 however is at 50% SS in SteamVR, still looks amazing, especially compared to the CV1 it replaced. Which headset are you looking at?
  12. Might be wise of them to produce a slimmed down version of the gasket, I would buy it... The G2 is way way comfier than my previous CV1.
  13. There wasn't a huge change in the FB version by and large apart from equipment it went unchanged, the biggest change was the going from Merlin 21 to 25. I hope we get a 1943 Merlin 25 at least. Then the question is will it be 100 octane or 150 octane fueled! I don't know huge deal about the Corsair to be honest, I assume it would be faster in everything but perhaps sea level.
  14. At sea level it will be a bit faster than the Spit and A8 IIRC and a little bit slower than all the other, not bad at all considering those other aircraft are from late 1944. You won't want to get much increase in speed with altitude as the FB verisons Merlin 25's were only singe stage. I think we will be glad that the synchronized clouds are coming soon as we will be spending a bit of time jumping between them!
