Personal Information

  • Flight Simulators
    I fly X-Plane 9 & 10 for basic aviation (150+ Aircraft),
    I fly FMS with RC Control Hand-Set to practice RC Flying,
    and when I feel like shooting targets and blowing something up - I fly LOMAC (upgrading to FC3 soon).

  1. Hey Carsten, Please don't let me spoil your Fun - but I find doing Aerobatics in a Flight Sim sort of like 'Kissing your Sister'. Not quite the Real Thing. Doing Sim Aerobatics (even in Aircraft specially designed for Aerobatics) is actually harder (and for me less satisfying) than doing Real World Aerobatics. Lack of Peripheral Vision, Lack of Seat of the Pants G-Force, and Lack of many other Cues contribute to making it more Difficult in a Flight Sim (but then there are many other things that are also harder - including what DCS World does Best - Aerial Combat).
  2. Been trying to get a Good Feel for the P-47 over last couple months. But of all my Aircraft - this one has been the most challenging. Almost all my other War Birds have detectable cues you can pick up on as you approach and reach Stall AoA - and back off the Pull/Back-Pressure on the Stick before you Depart controlled Flight. The P-51 Stang took a while to feel out - but I'm Good with her Now. But the 'Jug' is an entirely different Animal. I really don't detect any cues (Vibration - Buffet - Lack of Turn Rate - etc...) at all before she'll snap off and depart into a Spin
  3. Performed some Updated Testing - including 35K' The P-47 is in the same general Speed Regime as the 'Stang', but the 51 still has a few extra 'mph' on the Bolt Attached Chart show my latest Numbers:

    F-104?

    Love all the Century Series Fighters - Just a Golden Age in Fighter Development and Aviation. And the F-104 fits in Perfectly - Would Love to Fly one in DCS. Originally envisioned and designed as a High-Speed Interceptor, the F-104 never quite grew into a Dominent USAF Role despite being just Plain FAST. The F-104 was deployed to Vietnam - but was unsuitably (and stupidly) tasked to (for Example) CAS Missions for which it was poorly Designed. I think the F-104 became a much more Iconic Aircraft in Europe where numerous NATO Members used it as a High Speed (Nuclear Capable) Strike Figh
  5. Just beginning learning the Hornet - the 'AoA Machine'. Question on Weapons Emmployment: Since both the A/A Gun and the AIM-9 use the Trigger Pull Second Detent (JOY_BTN6) to Fire/Launch, looks to me that they are Mutually Exclusive without Switching between (selecting) either AIM-9 or GUN. Y/N ? Why does the Hornet use the Trigger for AIM-9 Missiles (rather than Weapons Release Button) - Zat a Navy Thing ? Or is the Weapons Release Button solely for Air-to-Ground Ordnance ? Does the Hornet have anything similar to the F-16C 'Dogfight Switch' that instantly configures the Aircra
  6. My Speed were Indicated (Not TAS) At 5,000 ft MSL I got 343 (Indicated) mph out of the 'Stang' in Level Flight Full Throttle. Corrected to TAS (ROT 2% for every 1,000 ft in Altitude), that 343 mph Indicated would equal approx 380 mph TAS. Very Close to what you Experienced :pilotfly: !
  7. There seems to be Less than expected Consensus (and no Standardized Methodology for Measuring) on the Top Speeds of WWII Fighters. I decided to see what I could get out of the DCS World P-51D and P-47D. Using Instant Action - Caucasus - Free Flight - Missions and Clean Configuration - Prop Fine Pitch - Full Throttle - After Leveling Off at Test Altitude, allowed Three Minutes for Aircraft to Accelerate and Stabilize at Steady State Speed Here’s what I got: Ft MSL Type P-47D P-51D 5,000 mph 322 343 KIAS 280 298 15,000 mph 297 293 KIAS 258 255 25,000 mph 2

  9. P-47D - Instant Action - Caucasus - Bomber Escort - WARNING Loading up this Mission I get the Warning: "Need Modules for load mission: WWII Armour and Technics" A Little Cryptic - Not Quite Specific enough to Know exactly what is Missing. So I'm assuming it's trying to tell me I need the: 'DCS: WWII Assets Pack' https://www.digitalcombatsimulator.com/en/products/other/wwii_assets_pack/ Package includes B-17 Bombers. Does the Instant Action Mission automatically draw the resources it needs from the WWII Asset Module just like a Scenery/Object Package ? Can anyone Co
  10. Spurious Zoom Out Commands After Update to (2.5.6.49798) Same Problem as Above Operators. I have a Dozen Aircraft Modules - MiG-19 Farmer is the only one acting up like this. So not me or my Machine - MiG-19 has a Bug or a Ghost ! PS: The more I fly the 19, the more I enjoy it. Hope RAZBAM can nail down a Fix :pilotfly: !
  11. At Floor Level What impressed me most - was the Immaculately Clean and Shiny Floor of the T-Bird Hangar. You could (I Sh.t you Not) Eat off that Floor.

  13. Came across some interesting MiG-19 Material. Thought I'd Share: Arsenal | The Venerable MiG-19 https://www.historynet.com/mig-19-serve-north-vietnamese.htm Flying and fighting in the MiG-19 https://hushkit.net/2017/10/30/flying-and-fighting-in-the-mig-19-in-conversation-with-wg-cdr-irfan-masum-part-1/
  14. I missed this News Bit a couple years back - Great Idea to keep the Guys & Gals Sharp. Do they still Teach Iron-Sight Bombing and Gunnery ? They say GPS was Invaluable in Desert Storm navigating over Vast Areas of featureless Desert. But can we still Fight without it ? The Air Force Turned Off GPS To Rehearse a War Without It https://www.popularmechanics.com/military/aviation/a15949440/air-force-no-gps-red-flag/ Red Flag 2018 is a dry run for a war without satellite navigation.
