If you do try it, I find the best time is as you're rolling out downwind. You're usually bringing the power up over 70% at that point after slowing to onspeed.

Default Skyhawk Tips and Tricks Part 2

Here's the second installment of Skyhawk Tips and Tricks. This one covers the Iron Hand, Alpha Strike, and Snakeyes At Sunset videos. In it you can learn a bit about what is going on in the videos in terms of planning the mission, setting up the aircraft systems and weapons and flying the missions.

This installment looks at the Nav Computer, the dreaded terrain clearance radar and the AGM-45 Shrike missile, among other things.

Have a look and let me know what you think.

BTW - fun fact - the term "Alpha Strike" was used by the US Navy during the Vietnam era to denote large strike missions that involved multiple different strike packages and often dozens of aircraft.

I said it before and I'll say it again, I want to play a sim based in your videos. The thing most missing from DCS is that sense of 'game' that GS2000 and Red Baron had.

Interesting. I really appreciate the feedback.

One of the things that I wanted to do with these videos is to make them follow a "story-arc". Every mission follows the previous ones and leads to the next one. I do have a back-story in my mind while I am designing each mission. The challenge is to design each new "chapter" so that it is not only entertaining but also so that it allows me to show off some new aspect of the airplane or the game. I am glad that it seems to be working for you at least :-).

I would be quite happy to have some suggestions about where to take the story next. I have the next couple of missions basically blocked out, but after that, the page is blank right now.

Hi.

I'm having a problem with the EXTERNAL POWER SUPPLY, It does not connect, I was trying a cold and dark start but the chief was not responding (the canopy was opened), no response in Caucasus and Nevada map, could you be so kind to give some light here?

Thank you.

Are you parked at an airfield/carrier ramp? Start services aren't available everywhere. Is the engine off?

Default Weasel Gone Wild

Here's another installment of the Haiphong Harbour videos. Enjoy.



Let me know if you are enjoying them and spread the word if you are.

I hope they are doing a good job of showing just how much fun it is to Scooter around in DCS.

These are excellent vids! I enjoyed watching

I really wish the A4E was made official so we could fly it in multiplayer like the cold war server.
