Hi Ironhand :)

 

 

Do you have plans on making tutorials for KA50 after Black Shark's release?

 

 

I'm wondering if you already taste BS, and what's your thoughts?

 

 

Thank you ;)

...Do you have plans on making tutorials for KA50 after Black Shark's release?

The short answer is "yes". Had you asked me this question several weeks ago, I would have told you that I didn't know whether or not I would be making black Shark tutorials. Helo sims have never held much attraction for me. And the only one I ever installed lasted a 1/2 hour on my hard drive before I removed it. But after sampling Black Shark, I'm hooked.

 

Any of you who, like me, are fixed wing (sim) pilots have developed a number of 'bad' habits that we will have to unlearn. We will have to develop new ways of thinking in mission planning and execution. And there's definitely a lot to learn. But Black Shark will be coming with it's own tutorials. So we'll start with an excellent base. And we can all build upon that.

Like I said above, I'm hooked. :)

Ironhand - just one question matey..........

how different is the Ka 50 to fly than say the A-10 / F-15. Are we talking more equipment to fly the Ka-50 correctly or will my trusty MS Sidewinder 2 do the job

 

 

Cheers

Is it possible to be a flight-sim enthusiast, and NOT also being hooked on helicopter sims? I'm a fan of both types of simulators, and they offer quite different gameplay experiences.

 

I like the dive down, drop your bombs, and then get the hell out of there approach offered by plane simulator, as well as the sneak, hide behind a hill, and then pop up and release your rockets approach found in a heli-sim.

 

I'm looking forward to Black Shark (and the tutorials) :)

I want to get away, I wanna fly away.

Yeah, yeah, yeah!

I'm flying an X-45 and have my hands full. There's quite a workload compared to even the Su-25T. In fact, I might finally lay out the cash for some rudder pedals. Using the rudder imput on the throttle can get a bit overwhelming as your fingers and hands are busy doing three or four other things at the same time.

 

...I'm a fan of both types of simulators, and they offer quite different gameplay experiences...

Previous helo sims never did much for me but I know what you meant. I've always conceptualized what happens in a military fixed-wing flight sim as fencing: Thrust, parry, thrust. On the other hand, helo sims are about sniping. Sneak in, kill shot, disappear.

Would it not be plausible to ask ED what type of configuration set-up they are using to fly the KA-50.

 

This would help me decide on whether or not to spend money on up-grading my set-up. If we are talking extra dosh to fly this chopper well, then I might have second thoughts about buying LO-BS

 

TIR 3 / 4 seems a must as well - MORE MONEY arghhhh

Longbow 2 anyone? :p

 

Heck, I've got quite a few flight hours playing Gunship - Gunship 2000 - Longbow - Longbow Korea Expansion - Longbow 2 - Apache...I can't freakin' WAIT for LOBS! Perhaps it's my Army training, but I'm more comfortable down in the weeds then up in the clouds. Perhaps that's why my A-10's are always coming home with grass stains! LOL

 

Hmm...now where to find money for rudder pedals??? :D
