  1. Spitfire Airspeed Gauge Needle Deficiency I find the needle of the Airspeed Gauge in the Spitfire too thin to read readily and it is an important gauge in flying the plane successfully. Just checked your Spitfire MK IX manual and the needle in your plane does not match the manual. It is much wider in the manual and easier to see in all lighting conditions. I have also flown in the real Boultbee MK IX at Goodwood in England and found that real Gauge to be quite readable. Note also the same gauge in the Boultbee Simulator at Goodwood which is a Mk IX, (See link below) I also no
  2. OK thanks, I guess I will stop pursuing this topic on DCS. wonder if the work on IlS-2 spitfly
  3. All above Saitek controllers work perfectly as well as my Ch fighter stick. The only thing not working are my Saitek FIP's and from what I have found on DCS they do not work. Spitfly
  4. I have 11 individual Saitek Pro Flight Instrument Panels in my simulator each operating identically to the Spitfire instrument panel (see attachment). These are presently operating on SPAD.next software in MSFX Steam on A2A planes ( Spitfires and North American T-6 ) and the Ant's Tiger Moth Pro, and are configured for each plane in SPAD Profiles which are readily selected for each respective plane once set up. I find the external FIP's easily viewed while flying without having to pan to each instrument internal to the cockpit and also allows me to fly controllably even doing aerobatics while

  6. Thanks for the responses. I tested with the fuel pump on and off and the Fuel Cutoff Aft kills the engine operating from idle and also from 2000 rpm. Pushing it forward keeps the engine going even while it is sputtering to stop from the aft position. Thanks again Spitfly,
  7. Page 135 of the detailed Spitfire MK IX Manual says to pull the Idle cutoff control Aft after engine warm up! Is this correct? Spitfly
  8. False alarm - Replying to my own message! - All controls set up and working after computer turned off and on. I now remember that I downloaded the Caucus Scenery after setting up my controls initially. Might this have caused the loss? thanks John
  9. I have just downloaded the trial free versions of DCS World and the Spitfire Mk 1V and set up my CH Fighter Stick, Saitek Combat Pedals, 2 Saitek Throttle Quadrants including 6 buttons each and the Saitek Cessna trim wheel. All were recognized in the set up and readily programmed. This was all done in the Cold Start so I could access the plane to test each control while loading and all worked. Upon opening DCS world this AM all control settings were gone except those few I set up on the CH fighter stick. Other than clicking on OK to establish each control setting I did not see any other comma

    Thank you for the input. I am not yet on DCS but interested and investigating and if and when I do get involved I would like to use my present simulator set up. For the immediate future this is a rainy day or evening exercise ( Sailing Season beginning) so I not sure if and when I could give you any feedback. I appreciate you response and hope to investigate further. Thank you again, John

    Do the Saitek FIP's operate in DCS? I presently have 9 Saitek FIP's in my Spitfire Simulator duplicating cockpit Gauges All are operating off of SPAD.NeXT software which does not presently function in DCS. Is there software in DCS which allows me to display these Gauges on my Flight Instrument Panels? These Gauges are a combination of software from Saitek, fipgauges.Com and FSXTimes
  14. Do the following Saitek controllers operate in DCS Throttle Quadrants - Levers and switches Trim wheel Combat Rudder Pedals
