Many people asked me for tutorials about certain aspects of DCS. Here are a couple of guides I made.       ************************************************** *******

Hi Chuck,   I just noticed that your Tutorial Library is now six years old ... it’s amazing the sheer amount of content that you’ve managed to produce over this period, thanks a lot from the

A new overhauled version of the Huey guide is now available! See first post.

Chuck. I've just studied F-16C guide.

Man! Awesome work, really!

 

Then, that idea came my mind: Why don't you prepare Training Missions? with your voice? :)

I'm sure you would really really do a great job, man!

Edit Note: Not YouTube videos I mean. Just like DCS World's interactive training missions.

 

Thanks a lot again!

These guides are fantastic! I much prefer written material to reference.

 

Not sure if it has been mentioned but using VRKneeboard and rotating Chuck's PDFs 90CCW and then rotating the kneeboard it is possible to get an additional landscape kneeboard whilst keeping the DCS kneeboard portrait for the standard charts. This is perfect for referencing Chuck's guides whilst in the cockpit in VR.

Thank you Chuck for updating the guide to include the A-10C II features, it is so valuable. I have a question for the group. When you look at pages (Adobe reader page numbers) 154-155, do they appear slightly blurry to you at all? When you compare them to pages 152-153, I can see a noticeable difference in the clarity. I saw this because when I magnify the zoom to 125%, the fonts gets worse on new pages 154-155 and not 152-153. I use a second monitor with Chuck's guide on the right and DCS straight ahead. I am not trying to be nit-picky. I print the controller pages to help me map my switches as I use a Virpil throttle. When the pages print, the clarity is just not there. I also want to point out that I do not have visual clarity of a 20yr old any more! Thanks again and good day to all of you.

Chuck consider to change your 1st post regarding the links.
After the new forum update your post is messed up!

 

I'll wait until Friday and see if the issues are still there... apparently the forum formatting is still being processed.

Hi Chuck,

 

I just noticed that your Tutorial Library is now six years old ... it’s amazing the sheer amount of content that you’ve managed to produce over this period, thanks a lot from the bottom of my heart, your work helped me a lot whenever I have started to learn a new dcs plane.

I’m long overdue on giving the Viggen the attention it deserves, so I’m very much looking forward to going through the guide as I learn this beast. Thanks for your hard work yet again!

You have put a lot of effort into the Viggen Guide. I'm currently working through it, making you want to get the Viggen out of your virtual hangar again. It's a lot more understandable than before. Damn good job thank you. And happy holidays.

Brilliant mate, thank you. I've been getting back into flying the Viggen a lot lately and found your old guide extremely useful, the new one looks even better. Thank you for all your hard work.
