Re: Mission building guidance

If we need the squadrons to fly at certain altitudes for any reason, put that in the brief and the mission leaders will take it into account. We don't want an 'arms race' between mission design and mission leaders so that either we need to put enemy aircraft stupidly high to achieve bounces or tact...

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

Another option - Thrustmaster have a sale on at the moment and you can get the T.16000M bundle for £100 - https://shop.thrustmaster.com/en_gb/winter-deals/t-16000m-fcs-hotas.html . Cheers, yes when the time comes, that's the way I'll go - Amazon selling for similar price. At the moment the X-52 thr...

Re: Is my track IR broken?

When I plug mine in I get 4 dull red lights briefly on the front of the unit - this only seems to happen when the software is running. (TiR 5)

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

Thanks Andy, It's actually an X52 throttle that I'm looking to replace - I liked the throttle a lot, but I never really got on with the stick, I found it too loose & floppy (insert Bunny gag here). But then I bought the X52 a long time ago in about 2007, & I understand the X52 pro is an improved ver...

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

Thanks all for the input (& to Silk & Tom last night on comms)

My bodge on the Saitek throttle was fine last night, but when the time comes I will go for the 16000 joystick/throttle combo.

Any throttle recommendations?

I currently use a fairly old Thrustmaster T16000m joystick together with an even older Saitek x52 throttle. (the Thrustmaster replaced the Saitek joystick when it packed up). The throttle is now failing. I've bodged a solution, but it needs replacing. I can't justify the expense of a Warthog or othe...

Re: F Sgt Kolo has arrived at Sutton Bridge

Good to see most standard cliches already in place. Just room for a warning not to drop your soap near the 601 mess.

Have fun!

Re: Radio mod for teamspeak

I used this tonight for the first time.

Certainly adds to immersion, but I struggled to clearly hear some people - I'll have a play with the knobs & see if I can improve as I did like the effect.
