Hi, just to tell you about my first steps in DCS.

I've finished my computer and have installed all i'll need for in my living room using my 75" TV screen and my home cinema for sound.

I have decided to start with A10 C module to learn to fly.

For my fisrt try, saturday, everything look like working, except me!

For the first time it had just took me 4 hours to start the plain, with the book and some English tutorials on Youtube, just some lights still lightning on the panel.

Anyway, i decided to drive a bit, with a crash in a van as issue !

My Hotas , my rudder, and brake wasn’t configured !

Yesterday, better “only” 1h30 for start the plane, and arrived ready to take off (just 4 lights still on the warning panel).

Full gaz and try to pull the handle, and nothing happened , so took the brakes and arrived managed to stop plane before the end of the track and back to parking.

I’ll just have to return to my hotas set up.

A lot of things to digest before fly with you.

Howdy, Sabes here, I've been practicing since April to familiarize myself in the hope I don't make to many boneheaded mistakes or procedural errors when going into multi play. I'm a full time gearhead and restore older Alfas because I enjoy it, a retired photographer, and now into this. Aviation has always played a role since my Dad was retired Air Force, brother retired AA Captain, and I've logged a couple hundred hours in single fixed wing. I use Voice Attack in VR and screen to control gear, flaps, radios, enter data on the UFC, and a lot of other commands. For me it's especially great in VR. I've spent most of my time in the FA-18 mainly because I want to send my brother in law (retired Navy Captain and aviator) a good LSO grade on a carrier landing. Still working on that. I've done some time in the P-51 and F-86 but not nearly as much as the Hornet. This is the and I don't want to call it a game, it's more of an experience I've been looking for since I don't know when. I'm far enough along or at least I think I am to start some multi play and was hoping someone could direct me where the new guys go so as not to make a complete fool of themselves. The last thing I want to do is ruin anyone's enjoyment. Thanks in advance!

Hi gigem, don't overthink it. Just join some squad. Many of them enjoy teaching new members. Of course the more practice you get before the better but don't wait for some level to achieve before entering MP. Enjoy the journey.

Hello!

Rogue Warrior here. I am a former Army Infantry soldier, a current Physical Therapist and current PhD student working on Dissertation (3rd year out of 4). I'm also a grown ass man, I'm 40 (Mike Gundy reference for those that don't get it).

I don't have time for this and need to be writing but I cannot resist! I am looking to work in with a group and learn the ropes.

If anyone is willing to take in a noob, please let me know!

Hello everyone, I'm Halfast.

I'm new to DCS and trying hard to get a grip. It's extremely fascinating and overwhelming at the same time.

 

I started with the P-51, then a bit SU-25T and last week I started learning the Viper. It's an amazing experience but

I do lack the company. I'd love someone to fly with, maybe in a mentor role. Also, a friendly squadron to join would be amazing.

 

If anyone feels like teaching a noob in the Viper a lesson or two I would definitely appriciate it. I mainly struggle with the ICP, DED and the MFDs. Using the different modes etc. I'll manage to startup, takeoff and, most of the time, land the aircraft :).

 

Cheers

Halfast

Finally ready for DCS, I had bought Flaming Cliffs 3 on sale some years ago, and not I am ready to fly.

Started with the A-10A, but not much luck, so bought the new A-10C Tank Killer, and the F/A-18 for good measure.

Also plays civil FS, so I know about the basics. And some skydive experience (500+ jumps).

Well after a long hiatus from Flight Sim-ing and seeing how well developed the Christen Eagle is (I own full scale Super Eagle 540) I decided to buy a gaming computer and jump back in......I fly for a Major Airline and have had a lot of time off the last 8 months so why not?

 

My long deceased father a retired NWA 747 Capt nicknamed "TARMACK" was famous in the 90's and early mid 2000's for his work on FS. Curious if any of the old timers recall that name? Shamless plug for spoon feeding help!

 

Other than that I like long walks on the beach with exotic woman from Brazil, and my lab puppy Jake "Yayo". Full time Professional Pilot, Aircraft Owner, and Large Scale R/C Aircraft including turbines and EDFS.

Hello Everyone!

 

I am a 37 year old life long aviation nerd who is new to DCS, and thought I would introduce myself. I grew up playing flights sims like Falcon 3.0, SWOTL, US Navy Fighters, and latter on Falcon 4.0 (although I never really mastered it outside of "Game Mode"). Once I got into High School, I drifted away from sims, but now, years latter, I have recently found the urge to get back into them, and the complexity and realism of DCS immediately drove me to it.

 

Outside of my childhood flights sims, about an hour behind the stick of a piper archer, and a year or two of fixed wing RC flying about a decade ago, I have no actual flight experience.

 

I started out with DCS with the F-86 module. I had no idea what I was doing when I got started, so I picked my first module based off of what plane I liked. I went all out, buying a Warthog HOTAS, thrustmaster pedals, and a Rift S VR headset. I have about 10 hours into DCS now, and I am hooked! I have gotten to the point where take off the F-86 and pretty consonantly get it back onto the ground in one piece, and am starting to learn Air to Air fighting. I scored my first AI Mig Kill last night playing the "Hunter Becomes the Hunted" Mission, and am hoping to start learning navigation over the Thanksgiving Holiday.

 

I plan on picking up either the F-18 or F-16 Modules whenever the STEAM sale starts, although I have still not made up my mind on what I am going to go with. Might just end up buying them both and trying them out before I decide what module to learn first.

 

Looking forward to flying with everyone in multiplayer once I figure out what I am doing!

​Good evening Otter with additional R,

 

Just reading in the forum I came across your comment. Your hobbies are appealing, but seriously take care to not ruffle your woman's feathers keeping yourself busy with DCS too much ... ;-)

 

I hope you will enjoy DCS, flying MP (multiplayer) and meeting various "aeronautics addicts" here.

 

Bye for now

Hi all,

I love anything to do with military aviation especially WW2, real flying and flight sims. I have flown a Tr9 Spitfire PV202 out of Duxford a few times. I'm only just back into flight sims, and look forward to chatting and flying with you all.

Tally ho,

Doc62

Hello all,

 

Let me introduce myself. My name is Kya, I absolutely love anything aviation related...particularly fast jets! I've been attending air shows with my Dad since the age of 6 & I aspire to be a pilot. I've had a couple of flying lessons in the real world but have recently embarked on the task of learning the ropes of DCS World. I've just taken delivery of my HP Reverb G2 & I'm taking baby steps towards learning the many controls of the F-18! Looking to make some friends whilst on this journey of flying in the world of VR

 

Another huge passion in my life is for cars, particularly for my Honda CR-Z! Attending car shows with her has become one of my favourite pastimes, not to mention the painstaking hours that go into detailing her in preparation.

 

Looking forward to getting better acquainted with you all!

 

Kya

Hello. New to DCSWorld, in fact new to flight sims all around. Me and my father were puttin together a model F-16 during virtual visits. Ya know he is retired and older and in the age of covid he is home bound and aint got much to do. Thought it was a nice thing to help him spend some of his days with someone other than himself.

Anyway I got curious about the jet and while looking up general information on it, I found some thread on reddit discussing its use in DCSworld and thought "Hey, why not"

I haven't bought the F16 yet, I don't have a stick, so I'm seeing how quick I learn using the su-25 and they keyboard.

Anyway, very happy with the sim so far though. And I'm always happy to meet new people so.

It's on. Sixgun here, old dude flight simmer and general wing nut. My favorite color is blue and I love chocolate chip cookies. I go back to Falcon on 3.5"s. Been working on the Hornet since March-ish, but only have so much time (that whole real life/family business). Would like to try joining a virtual VFA or VMFA squadron.

 

Cheers!
