Black Shark at FSX Party

Recommended Posts

For those in the West Country in the UK. On 29th November, the English version of Black Shark will be on display near Bristol (see http://www.rcsimulations.com for details).

The configuration will be with D-Box motion platform, TrackIR and Matrox TripleHead2Go, as integrated by RC Simulations. Come and fly it for yourself, you will be amazed!

Also on display will be the helicopter controls from LeftSide (see http://www.leftside-limited.com) picture attached.

For those with FSX friends, let them know, the hardware configurations work also with FSX, though obviously with an inferior helo flight model to DCS:Black Shark!

Thanks Jim,

for putting me in a bright light...:)

 

But you all should point your Eyes on the Set-up from RC-Simulations (click the image):

RC-S-Dbox.jpg

 

So - you can hardly see what's so fantastic about the D-Box on a picture.

... I will fill this gap in the next Two days:

Video is on the way!

Stay tuned!

Edit:

The Video is on line !

Thanks to Bob from RC Simulations for the raw video and to all involved Companys for their approval!

For those going to Bristol, you will be able to fly with this kit:-

A high Res version of the video will go up on this site later in the week in Downloads/Video

 

 

 

(OK... there are no buttons on the collective and there is also no Touch screen, not to speak about the fact that there are 'only' 3 screens ...,but this is a subject to change!:D)

So if you can make it to the show - don't hesitate!

Urze You deserve to be in the spotlight mate, Your collective and mods are fantastic. As to Bobs set up from RC, I can confirm its amazing. Really adds alot of feeling when you are using it, Pity I cant afford the 10K price tag. Looking forward to Bristol, and I will see you there Jim, Hopefully You may even get me off the setup for 5 mins as well ;)

Your "news on the 15th" link... is that Groove I see in the right hand picture of the three? :) And is that Jim as well? I had the great pleasure of a fantastic tour around Duxford with Jim and a few other 504 members over the Easter weekend earlier this year.

 

The RC-Sim rig has come a long way since I went there a a couple of years ago to show them TouchBuddy.

 

So, who is going to the FSX show then? I might tempted, now that my enthusiasm for flying has regrown since I purchased the russian BS version. Yes, 500+ days without playing a single game, then WHAM Black Shark is out and I return... a little rusty though :)

Hopefully see you there.:thumbup:

 

Really? Cool.... I think you have something I might need ;-) Would that be a good time and place?

 

It will be an early arrival and early departure as I need to be back in Cambridge for the evening for a friend's birthday meal that I really cant get out of (I have tried!)

Looks very nice, one question though. The video shows a boxed BS with age certification ( 16+ ), does this mean imminent release? Or was it a mockup?

It was a mockup, that has to be submitted to the various age rating authorities. You would not believe the amount of paperwork that has to be done to get a product onto retail shelves.

Well, that was a fun trip down to Bristol. Good to talk to Jim and Urze there.

 

The RC Simulation Heavy Metal Band decide which Guitar to use, while Jim wonders where the groupies are!

Bob surprises us all with the first viewing of the Daffodil Simulator!

"Tell me again, what does this button do?"

Urze says "Ah, I think I have the hang of it now", as he brings it in for a perfect nose first landing on the back of the IL76

Jim takes the D-Box for a flight

IMG_6449.jpg

 

Anyone care to own up as to who the unknown three are?

IMG_6463.jpg

 

The D-Box just rocks, it really does. I`m sure I only need one kidney, right? :music_whistling: BS on a triplehead2go, with long reach joystick and decent collective, TIR4, Saitek Headphones (is that right??), all perched on top of the D-box. You almost couldnt get much better than that. I must have flown about 3 times as much today as I have flown BS at home so far. I`ll get the hang of it soon, honest!

Zorlac,Great pics!!!!!!!! The tripple head looks amazing! I also like the looks of those rudder pedals,they look ruggid and a comfortable size.

 

^^^EDIT^^^ Ahh,read through the entire thread and see the pedals are part of the larger D-Box platform.

Will ask Bob the next days but, I think it's not the"Über" system you might expect.

 

I want also to drop some images (Thanks to Zorlac for support!)

and I want to thank all people -Espacially Carol and Bob and also the Yorkies(!)

th_FILE0257.jpg

for the warm Welcome in Bristol!

I had a really great time...

Lets start wit the FXS-Party at Sat:

Here you can see Jim and me (we both 'Again' ;) discussing about a set-up that will fit to people that never flew a helicopter before...;) )

IMG_6459.jpg

 

Jim and me flying

-and Yes! - when you once sat on a D-Box system it's hard to go home and enjoy it like you did before...

IMG_6441.jpg

 

What?! You don't know what I'm talking about?! - wait a sec... found the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uL9dLB_5dT0

 

IMG_6454.jpg

 

There where these moments when Jim looked with glance and a smile on the screens while other where flying...

I think not only because Jim has such a great humour - no - I believe because he sees that a Idea has become reality. (thanks to all how are working so hard to make this happen!)

 

IMG_6456.jpg

 

I'm at "work":

(BTW: don't you also think I should cut my hair for the first time in seven years ?! ... maybe I will open a poll.... ;) )

 

IMG_6435.jpg

 

And this was also very nice (look at the water!):

 

IMG_6420.jpg

 

It was a really great day! Of course it was not as big as "The E3" , but It had it's own charm and I got In touch with many people I wouldn't be able to talk in this depth on a bigger show. Hope you got my point.

Thank you BoB for this grat event! (And make sure the bar is next year open up to the end!:megalol: )

But it ended not at Saturday night for me ...

 

Look what I did on Sunday!

 

This is what I call a Playground! :
