Re: Is there a better, more HOTAS sensitive joystick?

Since my trustworthy T-Flight HOTAS X that served me well for past seven years starts to show its age (ghost stick wiggling, probably due to the wear on potentiometers), I am considering an upgrade for a bit advanced, mid-to-higher-tier stick probably in late June when I will (hopefully) definitelly...

Re: Eduard 1:72 B24 Liberator: Coastal Command

Lovely stuff Charlie! I have an old Revell (ex Heller) kit of Wellington Mk.X with variants of Coastal Command or Far East theatre camos. I think the choice is clear now, provided I actually get to it some day. :D

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

@Silk, damn, that's very unfortunate. @Gosho, Definitely will do, I just remembered we have it in the bottom of some of our kitchen drawers, must have a look whether there are any leftovers. If not, IKEA visit with obligatory meatballs dinner stop it is. On the taxiing note - some guides suggest swi...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

I would not expect myself to write a purchase update so early, but on Tuesday I got extremely lucky. There was a guy on a DCS facebook group who was advertising an used TrackIR with Track Clip Pro for about one quarter of the original price when these were sold by retails back in early 2010's (about...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Nice build, Silk. As I mentioned, I am considering the whole TFRP kit to buy when my trustworthy Hotas X says goodbye. But damn, the Gladiator looks fancy!

I read few reviews where people were a bit skeptical regarding the ruggedness and toughness of the Thrustmaster pedals. What is your experience?

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

I’m not up to scratch on your background, did you fly F/A 18’s for real or in another virtual squadron? Oh no... I've never flown a real F/A-18. It was with Jane's F/A-18E years ago with a Virtual Navy I was a member of. We had a collection of 4 squadrons (2 of Janes F18, 2 of Falcon 4.0) and did a...
