  1. Give it time to process; its filed in 1440p and was a big file.
  2. https://www.dropbox.com/s/i4kmbes4774hn5k/tpod.trk?dl=0 Also have this one recorded too, Ill post it to youtube if need be. The laser for the mav wasnt firing, so I think I have that one solved. However, the TPOD in HMD was all over the place over a certain altitude, while under that certain altitude it remained pretty much on target. The JDAMs were all over the place, but my LGBs were fine.
  3. I can try, I might even be able to get a server side track as this was on multiplayer. Let me get back in a few.
  4. I make it under one thread because Im fairly certain its the pod that caused the issue.
  5. https://www.dropbox.com/s/9vzb4ti84af4ktz/JTF-13 Caucasus Training Map v3.1-20210123-134846.trk?dl=0 First issue - couple of times when I designated a target, the TGP would walk off target. I used the HMD to designate, then used the FLIR to slew the cursor over to the target, then designated. The pod would slowly walk off target. Second issue - using the LMAV, I could designate but couldnt launch. the IRMAV was just fine. Both times I had designated with the TGP and not the HMD, although I DID try to designate with the HMD a few times as well, still couldnt get it to la
  6. Not saying its a good or bad idea, just pointing out that if theres not much difference between the two, you already have an airframe thats just as capable as the Blk 40 with albeit small differences. If its not much of a big difference, why bother with it? Let them finish this one first because its FAR from finished.
  7. Also, if you are flying with turbulence on then maybe try turning it off and practicing in servers with it disabled or in single player. Wake turbulence is a whole different animal and requires you to approach the tanker from a different angle, and I can see that being a big issue with new joins tanking for the first time. Believe me when I tell you that it helps having turbulence disabled that it makes it way easier to tank. When you finally get comfy with it, turn it back on and learn some more.
  8. You act like I have over 10,000 hours of flight experience. Really I have closer to 60 hours in the hornet in my logbook, and closer to another 40 online. Out of all my flight hours, probably only 35-40 times have I actually tanked. Dont make it sound impossible to learn. Not going to lie, at first it IS a challenge. The more you try, the more it stays the same. Thats all there is to it. You may disagree with me, but keep trying. You think its hard in the hornet? Try it in the Harrier. Practice in the Su-33; thats how I learned. Fly in the Aerobatics Online server and learn formation with othe
  9. Honestly its not all that hard to keep in the basket. Then again, Ive had plenty of practice over the years. Like everything, it takes muscle memory time to learn and lots of practice flying formations. One day itll just "click" and itll be easier from then on. Dont give up on it, just keep trying. And there technically is an easy mode designed for a2a refueling as the basket and probe are scripted to connect with each other when you get in the proper parameters. IRL that basket wobbles, bobs and weaves all over the place, so yeah we already have it easy.
  10. Thought I would ask, maybe with the data cartridge coming soon. Thanks anyways..
  11. Can someone explain to me how to name waypoints? and I mean from the MCFD page, not in mission editor... or is that even possible?
  12. Finesse is the key to everything that requires finesse. If your joystick has some sticky spots where it takes a little more force to go past, you're going to have problems. Also helps to fly with your fingertips and not death gripping your joystick because that aggression translates into aggressive movements. All of that also applies to your throttles - make them as smooth as possible physically. If you have to take it apart and grease some moving parts, do so. Place your joystick in a position where its comfortable, or make it as comfortable for you to use it if you cant place it exactly wher
  13. Ok, thought I would mention it. Alternatively, you can just stow the flex sight and be able to look around, and I know this is kind of pointless but you can uninstall the guns in the gunner positions and still use the seat for transport. I guess what y'all are asking for is a key command to stow the guns or move them separately?
  14. Let me be clearer; I just said it allows you to use your mouse instead of trackir. You would use your mouse to fire and aim the guns while using TIR or VR to aim. Ill look for it in settings, its always been there. And that control is Rshift + T. Disables TrackIR aiming, and you would use your mouse instead of trackIR.
  15. No, you were still able to use your head. It disabled the guns and brought it to where you use your mouse instead.
