Re: Starshina Noris arrives at Kalach

Welcome Noris! As a somewhat newcomer myself I can tell you this is a great bunch to fly with. Looking forward to seeing you in the air with us soon.

Re: Steam VR and OTT

That's a good question. I've wondered about that. I was toying with some of those settings with Skyrim VR - the default setting was 174%, just like Tom's, but I messed around with pushing Skyrim VR's specific setting up to 150%, and my OTT is typically hard set at 1.5. I really didn't notice much of...

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...

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

Yes, good points - and that's how they countered my rebuttals. Technically, I wasn't the mission lead; I was just flying lead in formation at the time. But yes. I fell asleep enroute to a target. :P

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

... and we [you mean "I" don't you?] Welcome aboard "Sleepy" :Party Actually, that's the amusing part - my squadmates kept formation and didn't fly off to continue the mission. That was what I always retorted with when it was brought up later. :Wink Having said that tho, I think they stayed in form...

Re: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

Thanks all! Looking forward to getting into the Ops on Sundays - and a big thanks to Merlin for the OTU flights. I'll make sure to get all the skins installed tonight. - If you do anything exceptional make it a good one or they will never let you forget it. Heh - yes. Those exceptional things that f...

Re: Am I missing new pilots ?

Fritz here - just one more OTU flight to go. Thanks Bunny - looking forward to flying with all of you. Just an FYI... I didn't realize that my Steam ID and my IL2 BoX ID are actually different. Changing my Steam ID to Fritz did nothing, so you guys were seeing me as "casimir06" while in practice fli...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Hey Peter - I can attest to the fact that TP has no issues with signing up pilots from the U.S. as long as you can make the training flights and the Sunday ops (and after OTU, either the Tuesday fun flights or Friday night flights). In in the same boat - my schedule makes it easy for me to make Tues...

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

I'd recommend the CH Pro Combatstick - https://www.amazon.com/CH-Products-200-568-USB-Combatstick/dp/B00006B84W Its got a really smooth and easy action, the buttons work great, and it even has two trim wheels (I never use them, but they're there). Additionally, I've had my CH Pro setup (Pro Pedals, ...

Re: Welcome Guests.

By the way - the e-mail address you put on was the google place we all know and love. If that first part looks wrong let us know. Okay, thanks - what's what it should be. Odd as I did send an email thought it expressed reservations about the time zone. I’ll double-check later. Strange indeed. I've ...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Greetings all - I submitted an application about 2 weeks ago, and haven't received any response. I'm beginning to wonder if I might have put an incorrect email address in the app, and am just curious if someone could check. The "Preferred RAF Name" I chose was James Eduard Bucholtz (there's a histor...

Re: Welcome Guests.

Greetings - I'm looking for a Co-op squadron (as I'm not interested in PvP flying), and happened across you guys in my search. I flew for one of the JG26 groups for many years before CloD, so I'm traditionally focused more on the German side of things as a dedicated 109 pilot, but at this point don'...
