  1. Really enjoying playing with the newly fine tuned FM for DCS MiG-21. I found this great resource about the MiG-21 in USAF Aggressor Squadron. It's a really good read for DCS MiG-21 fans and fanatics. The new FM seems to be closer to the test pilots descriptions than it was before. They state: "Even the mighty F-15 Eagle had no solution in dogfight below 150-250 knots against MiG-21 in US Aggressor hands...This way Mig-21 will remain behind every opponent still having sufficient control ability for gun tracking using rudder rolls...It is obvious that US aggressor pilots pulled
  2. Incase anybody doesn't know about this. We have detailed description from the USAF aggressor pilots use of the MiG-21 at slow speed and high AOA, full aft stick and rudder rolls. That's where I got the idea to try this counter intuitive tactics. Read page 4 -5 "Even the mighty F-15 Eagle had no solution in dogfight below 150-250 knots against MiG-21 in US Aggressor hands...This way Mig-21 will remain behind every opponent still having sufficient control ability for gun tracking using rudder rolls...It is obvious that US aggressor pilots pulled full aft stick in turn regardless of the
  3. I just tried the FM and IMO think it's the best it's ever been. Bravo. Still very challenging to fly if you go over AOA limits it drops a wing without warning but once you are down to very slow speed you can control nicely at high AOA. This is really fun to fly like this. You can see I drop a wing at 1.02 sec and then held the stick back and just used rudder to roll till until I got gun on Tiger. I love it.
  4. I took off on multiplayer server as RED F16 thinking at last I deal with the Blue Patriots and Hawks... Ten minutes later I land where I took off with HARMs still under my wings. Can't target Blue missiles :(
  5. I've never had issues with FPS in the MIg 21 until the last update. Strangely enough my FPS chugs with very high AOA. Weirdest thing. I was testing the stall behaviour and noticed the FPS would half as I stalled the plane.... WTH ?! Maybe i was looking down ward and the radar screen was coming into view? I'll have to test again
  6. Some of the most satisfying moments in the Fishbed were nailing an aero break after a successful PvP online sorte. I've been using the SPS ... I approach just below 300km/h and without too much concern for perfect speed and decent rate but then just before touchdown I give it a little burst of the throttle just enough for the blown flaps to cancel out the descent rate to almost nothing just as the main wheels touch down. For me the timing of this burst of blown flaps powered lift is what makes it work. The front wheel will usually still try to come down but this movement is gentle enou
  7. Just found this great work! Hopefully your sounds get integrated into the module and credited to you at some stage. I've been asking in this forum for months, maybe years, for some audio feedback for AOA, buffeting, airframe creaking, cockpit shake, audible vortex or turbulent flow over wings. Riding the AOA limit is so important in this module and we don't have the other feedback a real pilot would have from all his senses. I wonder if some seasoned Mig 21 pilots could smell the AOA limits approaching? lol As you some of the other modules have great audio feedback for AOA. There is no
  8. I'm using an old FFB stick and a couple of years ago I was pretty good at riding the edge in the mig 21 but not any more. Some of that is stick time. I had a lot more back then. Maybe i'm just rusty but it seems to have changed also. I really can't imagine how anyone flies it without a FFb stick. Must be hard. I switched the ARU to manual and turned the sensitivity all the way up and that made a big difference. Thanks for that suggestion
  9. I'm struggling with the mig21 too. The pitch limited at hi speed is hurting but I wish we had some sound feedback as it approaches AOA stall. It's impossible to watch the AOA indicator while riding the edge and looking up at the enemy aircraft. Some buffeting noise would REALLY help me fly this plane better. I can see vaper/ turbulent flow if I look over my shoulder at high alpha. Would that be audible in real life? I have also noticed that if I do go over AOA and into stall it's now quite controllable with the stick all the way back and using rudder to roll. Right down to 200kp/h. I've h
  10. Is it possible to datalink the F16c with the Russian A50 AWACS?
  11. Yes same thing here. Growling Sidewinder used to be so smooth and fast on my average PC. I5 4GHz, 16 gig ram, gtx 1070 8gig Vram and 500Gig SSHD But now with this new mission it runs like crap. lag spike after lag spike and I look at the number of ground units and I'm not surprised ! There is two huge fronts with with ships and sam everywhere. How can we give them feedback ? they might have super computers to play on and don't know why we all leaving? because too many units for us.
  12. Mig21bis in DCS has been easily my favorite DCS module. I've flown in online for thousands of hours and quite competitively on the cold war servers. I use a FFB stick so the feeling of holding the nose just above stall requires roughly the same amount of stick pressure even as the speed and stick angles both change dynamically. So it is quite easy to hold the Mig 21 on the edge without looking at the AOA indicator if you have a FFB stick. Of course most DCS flyers don't use FFB and it is no surprise to me that many complain that they can't fly the Mig21 in a dog fight. Ofcourse they can'
  13. It's terrible. It's like it's been dumbed down so it requires no skill to fly anymore. Also the FFB is gone. It was my favorite DCS plane precisely because it was so challenging and rewarding to fly well. I can't fly it like this.

  15. Me too, no FFB at all. Mig21 had the best feedback in DCS IMO :(
  16. ED handles all the missiles performance. 3rd party devs don't set performance of their jets weapons. I was under the impression that all BVR missiles have much shorter range in the sim than in real life. I'm fine with that. It would not be fun multiplayer to just fire at 40 nm and turn to go home and land. To be honest this is why I am not much interested in 4th gen .. because the older 3rd gen actually got close enough to see each other and shoot.
  17. [MISSING TRACK FILE] Attack Radar keeps scanning left side of the screen I have this problem with my radar only scanning the left side of the screen. I also see that I can't change the antenna elevation. If I move the cursor to the right side of the screen and press lock it will move to the right and attempt tot lock but then unlocking it just goes back to the left side scanning. I've tried all the typical things... it's not in ACM modes, or the scanning angles... Whats worse is I remember having the same problem many months ago and found the solution and I remember it is simp
  18. When I try to fly the Mig 19 online I am stuck with the "default" skin which is a garish red prototype skin instead of the beautiful bare metal skin that is named "default". Lots of servers lock the skin to default to avoid loading of peoples skins... The red skin is not as annoying as the ugly tiger meet skin the Mirage 2000 was stuck with for so long but it is ugly and unrealistic and I want to use the fantastic bare metal skin that is so much more realistic. Please change the default back the bare metal skin.
  19. I use a duel shock controller with my left hand for the extra buttons and the analog sticks to move the cursors for sensors. So I don't miss the extra buttons of a WH. Buttons are no comparison to feeling the FM in your stick hand. Good to hear at least one of the Devs has a MS FFB SW 2 but is that what he normally uses or does he have it in the cupboard? Most guys who use them are fanatics who will have no interest in flying with a spring stick . i know I certainly have no interest in flying with out FFB.
  20. Finding out that heat blur fly with out FFB is like finding out they fly with out Track IR or VR... Kinda shocked they are using spring sticks in development. I'm using FFB edit soft ware to emulate a spring but doesn't work very well. I get it just right then start DCS and it is too strong or I do the long F-14 start up and go to taxi and realise it isn't on at all. Have to restart DCS to get it working :(
  21. Great stuff ! Looking forward to these improvements
  22. PS does anybody know what "Short arm and Long arm technology" is? I saw the switch in the cockpit and wondered if it changes the sensitivity of the elevators as the speed increases or decreases. A similar system as the Mig21 has? Maybe it is something else completely?
