I would imagine that once the academic videos start to drop we're 8 weeks or less from being able to fly it for ourselves? It was around that with the Hornet wasn't it?

The first hornet academic video was posted on July 31st, 2017. The hornet released in May 2018.

So not quite.

I think it would be great if they just posted more mini updates letting us know where the project stands. Its not so much the exact date the videos or the module will be released, its just being kept in the loop so at least those of us that have pre-ordered the module knows where the project stands.

Holy poop. I had no concept it was that long. I really thought it was about 2 months as well.

Do you remember how many vids wags squeezed in? One would assume with EA allegedly November the time available for academic vids is reduced somewhat.

Ooh, thanks for confirming those dates. I think we are further in the development cycle than the Hornet was at the time of first video then, since we should almost certainly be able to fly the Viper by the end of the year.

As another mentioned, a little teaser video would be really great. Keeps me happy to see more and to know that we're not being forgot about.

Please ED, the hype train is losing momentum!

We need more fuel to keep it going!

I can't believe I feel this way, but I rather see a video on the SuperCarrier than the Viper right now. I feel so ashamed.

Leave this sub category. You should be ashamed of yourself.

There is too much to come in the near future. The F-16 videos, the super carrier, the Mi-24, and what else all kind updates there is coming to the DCS because lots of improvements are going to be rolled out (Combined Arms etc).

It is better not to think these things because it will just result to heart giving up from enthusiasm.
