Ironhand! I salute you!


Recommended Posts

:icon_supe Ok, I guess everyone loves Ironhand and his flanker training site, but considering i bought Lomac a week ago, with FC, I am fresh to this game and don't know everything yet. I played the a-10 campaign through but I wanted a clean score, so I started again.. I always had trouble with about three of the missions though as there was so much AA presence.

 

For a while, when it came to tor's, tunguskas etc in missions I couldn't really figure out how to get past them unless i used a Mav on them.

 

I've just watched one of Ironhand's 'how to operate in a SAM environment' and completed all three of those missions without a scratch - and i didn't destroy any of them either.. just my main targets.

 

Thankyou ironhand for the tutorial!

Rich deserves a medal for many years of great service to the community. There aren't many others who can match his contributions over the last decade or so.

PS You've only had LOMAC a week and you've already completed a campaign? Sheesh, I've had it years and still haven't managed that! :-)

;) That was just ground pounding... I've got a serious problem with the SU-25t campaigns.

 

For FC, just because it's flippin' hard but for the campaign entitled 'su-25t campaign' the second mission is causing me a headache. The turn rate of my plane won't match the su-25, I can' see the ships until i'm beneath the mist and as soon as i do, for some odd reason i get a slide show and die when i get close enough to use rockets on them.

Ironhand is the man.. TDW is the man....WildBill is the man.... Pilotasso is the man.... snomf is the man.... GG is the man.... Shep is the man.... as well as many others i fail to remember off the top of my head. :icon_jook

 

 

Honest, anytime you need air support, it would be a pleasure to escort you. Im still learning the A-10. But i hold my own pretty well in the F-15. I can also use some help engaging SAM's with the Mav-D. So if we are ever alone on a server, i would certainly feel privledged to fly your wing while listening to your tips for defeating sams.

This is something I always wanted to do- a coop mission with deep penetration low profile with some A2A engagements on the way in and on the way back. I remember we tried with Alfa few years ago to fly such a mission online in Flanker 2.5 with MiG-29K but it didn't work for several reasons- mostly because of our slow connections and the full of bugs Flanker's network code. Then I gave up on coop missions and moved entirely on guns only dogfights, something that was fully doable even at slow conn. I see that FC is way better in this aspect, there are many ground attackers in the Lobby.

Yes I totally agree with all of the previous posts....

 

When I was haveing trouble in Flanker 2.5 I had posted in the UBI Flanker forum for help....

 

I was completley ignored as usual (LOL), when Rich posted some sound advise....

 

So to make along story short after I applied it and was able to finally complete the mission successfuly...

 

My hats off to you Rich and your one of the main reasons I'm still around today, thank you...

I also throw a S! towards Ironhand. His tutorials are head and shoulders above a dry manual any day! How he finds the time to produce such slick, watchable movies is beyond me.

 

Keep it up Rich!

 

I offer you the thanks of all of those who read this thread but didn't post thier thanks.

Okay. You've made me blush. Fell ill and then needed to travel over the Easter weekend and returned to find this thread.

 

A heart-felt "thank you" to all. Knowing that the tutorials help you to enjoy your flights more is why I continue to make them. Of course, finding the time to make them...

 

Once again, thank you.

Aww hell...I missed this one. Another salute from me, Rich! Without your Hog tutorials, I'd still be trying to hit targets from only a couple thousand AGL. :icon_supe

hey rich,

 

I always wanted to know....how come your A 10 tutorials in which ur cannon is pointed on spot to target...stays like that?? I mean that you are able to keep the cannon lined on target effortlessly....when I try doing that..the jet always seems to stick where I move my joystick....if you know what I mean...its hard for it to stay straight....can you..lol...make a tutorial of how to calibrate the x-45 ?? :p

 

thanx buddy.

 

pleasure to see your willingness to help. BTW...don't sweat and waste time on any tutorials...just make em' when u r free ;)

Ironhand is the man

 

Ironhand is surely one of the greatest members of combat flight sim community, no question about it. Flightsim instructor, mentor, and good man overall.

He has my support if he runs for president's chair :)

 

cheers, Ironhand :icon_jook

Flying skills for sure. If you have trouble aiming with A-10 cannon, try it with Su-25T when trigger is pressed ;)

 

There's a trick to increase resolution of your joystick. Did you try that? In joyrange.cfg set increase value to 2000.

Also when I fly A-10 response curves for X&Y axes are set to 20%

I assume you have some "dead zone" dialled into your setup. Other than that, mostly I have the a/c trimmed for my anticipated attack speed and try to stay in that speed range during the attack by playing dive brakes and throttles against each other. A light hand on the stick during the attack also helps. I sometimes receive tracks from other people and, in the watching, I can tell that they have a death grip on their flight stick. That almost guarantees that you'll overcontrol.

 

BTW, when I say that I have the a/c trimmed for the attack, I enjoy trimming. Depending on the flight, I might fly the verticle axis of the ingress route using trim control alone. After a very short time with that type of practice, trimming becomes 2nd nature and something you do without conscious thought...and usually in the right amounts on the first attempt.

Well, I doubt you'd like that very much. If I only made them when I was free, you would have seen your last tutorial about 3 years ago. :)

There's another trick for me though... sometime in the future I will kill my saitek cyborg 3d gold. It's a POS. Half the time when I start my PC it fails to initialize, which means I need to unplug and replug. Furthermore, when using the hat to move the pipper, the thing just flings around so it's tough to do fine aiming with it.

Ironhand,

 

That is a great advice. I have to try trimming more.

As always, you have my utmost respect! S!
