  1. I will have to try that out. Thanks. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  2. I have enjoyed DCE campaigns. Does anyone have a good way to create a kneeboard page from the waypoints and waypoint arrival times? I feel like I am often going to the briefing screen to find the waypoint times. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  3. I don't know how many people are in which camp, but I am the same way. I used to fly the A-10 a ton, but after flying the F-18 with a pilot body, it drives me nuts to fly the A-10 now. I own the F-14, but am waiting for a pilot body to really dig in. I also fly in VR. In the F-18, the only time I regularly have to turn off the body is on startup. Same with the Harrier.

  4. I believe that it prevents "ghosting" or unwanted button presses when used in a matrix. It serves a different function than the pull-up resistors. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  5. There is a long thread where MilesD gives occasional updates on shipping status. https://r.tapatalk.com/shareLink/topic?url=/topic/186758-new-vr-pointing-device/&share_tid=186758&share_fid=74365&share_type=t&link_source=app Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  6. I found some toggle switches at Ali that are 12mm, instead of 6mm, but are small on the bottom. I haven't tried them because I haven't had a new project recently. They are also more expensive. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/33004812439.html?spm=a2g0n.shopcart-amp.item.33004812439& Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  7. I also just tried out the MI-8 trial. I had this same question yesterday, and there is indeed a stock English cockpit in the special menu. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  8. That looks cool. What The you using as sensors? Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  9. My suggestion would be ugly and require two USB inputs. The above idea is a better idea if you can scavenge the required parts.
  10. A Bondar board is literal plug and play. There is no soldering required. One example: http://www.leobodnar.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=94&products_id=205. You just attach your wires and plug it in. It then looks like a game controller to Windows. There is also Mmjoy, which is custom Arduino firmware. It also takes the coding out of making a game controller. You just have to set what pin is what in a graphical user interface. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  11. One option would be to wire all of your switches to an Arudino or Bodnar board, while using the Thrustmaster gimbal. It would be a little ugly, and you would have two USB cables to plug in, but it would theoretically work. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  12. This article claims 25 of the 60 subs sink by the US Navy were from the Consolidated PBYs and 13 were sunk by Consolidated B-24s making 2/3 killed by Consolidated Aircraft. https://www.navytimes.com/news/your-navy/2019/08/31/cat-tales-the-story-of-world-war-iis-pby-flying-boat/ Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
  13. Does anybody else feel like the default VR viewpoint is too far back? When I look down the seat seems to be in the wrong spot, and it feels like I would have to lean way to far forward to reach the throttles. If I lean back, and reset the view it seems to more natural.

  14. I am with the OP and sirrah. I hate flying models without a body. I do have a shortcut for the occasional time I need to hit a button that is obscured. It feels like that is usually on startup. I love the A-10 and the F-14, but I hate flying them without a body.
  15. I use Voicattack to run Vaicom, so I just mapped a button press to spacebar. Sent from my moto g stylus 5G using Tapatalk
