Correct if anyone new or not looks at the bottom of Miles posts they will see links to Q/A etc.
just got back from a week away under my daughter's and Grandkids supervision Fathers day last week I had to go visit them Now I have to get to grips with my amazing Kit. Well, on Sunday, to late now.

Can I get the firmware update looked at your site I know you can not put it live until tested but would love to try it out asap.

Lucky you, I am hoping for grand-kids, but I don't know if it will happen. But I really enjoy going to NYC to hang out with my daughter.

Update: Waiting on feedback from the testers on the update package and procedure to ensure it works on all systems. As soon as I get the green light from them I will email a zip file to update your HMS.

Thanks,
Miles

Yes it does work, but nowhere near as well as it does in DCS. Los has some time on other sims, and I have tried it on them all. The problem I find is their mouse implementation is horrible. It almost seems like their devs don't even fly their own sims with the clickable cockpits. But thats just my opinion, and I am partial to the DCS refined cursor implementation and clickable cockpits.

I know ED takes a lot of heat, and I honestly don't know why. Big picture, side by side, there's nothing that even comes close to what we have. To me, it seems ED is a company of enthusiast who are passionate about what they do, and we are all lucky for it. Well I should get off my soap box, I try not to get on.

Thanks for the question,

Miles

Did this as a PM but I thought right or wrong all should see what a great guy, a person, a man MilesD is. First part talking about grandkids.

It's the best days of your life watching the kids grow up. Its why we are here and do what we do. I am sure you will both be grandparents in the future only it's not. You are parents all over again with the same worries as before. ONLY wiser.

Also in the USA! it costs, Yes? Cost me my youngest is a timeout on her Masters. 1yr. Dr N.Smith cost me the equivalent of US $20K so far, but as a parent, I have done my job.

I want to reiterate "STOP" my hands type faster than my brain.

I wish to say again I really want to pay my way in life, as I always have. Also to give you, your due rights as a great developer of the awesome Complimentary VR hardware that is PointCTRL. (I put this about quite a lot under my pseudonym Rabid_Raven well given to me by my grandchildren G/Girls (12-13) G/sons (1-5-6)

In other words. I do not wish to offend you and I am very worried about doing this. But I never did what I did to get something for free. Please, Miles, you have rewarded me by moving me up the list and outside the US. I will order if ok with you the cable and the Pimax adapter.

Also the cost in full. I Hope I am not offending you, but it is the kind of person I am.

I have not slept because I felt so guilty, I was away for a week I came back to watch the recurring Q's and try and point them to your last page and the links.

Kind and sincere regards

Terence.

Tried to ring your home phone no luck said calls not allowed I would speak and thank you and explain in person far better from my time period but perhaps I am not there yet lols

Did I send you the wrong mount?. I will get another one out to you, and please don't worry about paying. Sending out a PointCTRL sample was the least I could do, its not a big deal, so please dont even give it another thought. You have already done enough as the "Keeper of the list" and don't feel you have to do any more. Now after a week with the grand-kids, get some rest my friend.
