  1. My hand controllers are on my lap. When I need to flick a switch, or turn a knob, I'll pick one up, and use it. Just like a real pilot would take their hands off the stick or throttle to do so. It's a lot more intuitive than a mouse because they function as hands. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk I don't want to use a mouse. I want to use hand controllers. My Rift S doesn't show a crosshair. But the G2 does. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  2. Do pilots use a mouse or a trackball? Or do they use their "hands"? What's the point of flying a simulator, if you're not going to simulate it. The hand controllers work great. I just don't want the pointer to switch to my helmet. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  3. Just got my G2, when my hand controllers go to sleep, the crosshair or pointer goes from my controller, to my headset. So wherever I'm looking, there's always a crosshsir in the center of my view. Any way to turn that off? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  4. Didn't they do that with a C-130? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  5. As title says, they're not hitting their targets. The Sparrows don't even come close to hitting their targets. For the last couple of weeks I've noticed a serious drop in hit percentage of both missiles. I launch the Phoenix well within range as shown on the screen below the HUD, and I keep my nose pointed at the targets till they either go active or reach their estimated TTI after going active. I don't have a track though. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  6. Discussion is fine, no problem with that at all. And obviously we all want to get better at flying this game. But since it's something we do for fun in our spare time, we can do without the BS in my opinion. This isn't the Navy, or the Iranian Air Force, so no need for someone to get all "you should be able to do everything with the current HUD" and "why can't you fly just instruments" just because someone asks a simple question. I'd like to get the HUD, because it was a part of Tomcat history. And I'd love to have the opportunity to try it out. I would like the D model too. So next we'll g
  7. Well, I'm just asking Heatblur "hey, can you get us this version" and what follows are 37 comments on how many of each version of this plane were made, how to fly instruments, and so on lol. Just wanted to know if it was possible [emoji849] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  8. Well, as the OP, I just thought a version with the Sparrowhawk HUD would be cool so we could have another version of our favorite plane. Nothing to do with better or worse. Or needing it. I can do just fine with the current HUD. Sure, 68 or so planes got the HUD, we're also getting the Iran version which had 79 units delivered. That's ok? 79 is fine, but 68 is too few? Funny that. And it's ok to go from the superior B to the inferior A but we can't get an upgraded B? I was just curious if Heatblur could do it, and if they could, if they'd consider it since we're getting other versions. I'
  9. Thank you all! Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  10. I'm not using anything from the Warthog stick. I'm leaving that as a sidestick for whenever I fly the Viper. Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  11. I'm flying the Tomcat 80% or more of the time in DCS, with a Warthog HOTAS in a sidestick configuration. I want to buy a dedicated F-14 grip, extension, and base to mount in the center. Which do you use/recommend? Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  12. This article reads of several B equipped squadrons from Oceana with Sparrowhawk HUD's. Since we're getting 3 different versions of the A model, I hope you will at least consider giving us a second B version with this HUD.

  13. You're putting it in bomb mode Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  14. Within visual range menu, drop tanks Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
  15. You fly with 68 degree wing sweep because Meg Ryan is watching. Then during the overhead break you sweep forward, because it looks cool, and you extend the airbrake because you don't want to keep her waiting when you touch down [emoji6] Sent from my SM-G960U using Tapatalk
