    Some FlyFreeStd aircrafts are currently on sale at Simmarket, listed around 12 Euros only. Then I'm hesitating. The only Russian payware planes I had were the various Sukhoi made by BearStudios. The models were nice but unfortunately their HUD is not collimated, which is very disturbing in VR. Now I see that the recent models by FlyFreeStd seem to have: - quite nice exterior models - frankly impressive virtual cockpits (unlike their earlier productions, the recents ones look REALLY good inside) - collimated HUDs So I'm wondering about their realism ? I understood I shouldn't expect any working weapon (they don't use TacPack), but at least a weapon loader is available. What about the avionics and flight model realism ?

    Thanks Frank. Yes, brakes mapped to the "." key and pinky trigger on the X52 stick. Both function. Really stumped on this.

    For some reason Just Flight where I bought the original SWS F-4 has the PBR edition at full price with no "upgrade" option or price for customers who bought the old F-4 at JF. Anyway, I have now uninstalled this aircraft and guess will go back to the Alphasim F-4. Have become frustrated with the pitch having a mind of its own (pitch trim hat button IS set to repeat and slider in the middle) so can't really fly it, lack of detailed systems manual (e.g., where exactly is the battery switch?), cold/dark or ready to start start ups don;t work, inability to change load outs if you change paints or a/c mid flight and curtailment of the old SWS web site forum, which solved a lot of the earlier teething problems.

    Not exactly true.....the Merlin engine ones were underpowered compared to the Hercules engine ones, as the Merlin was a 'Ministry' substitution for the design spec Griffon. Griffon engines being reserved for the Fairey Firefly. The problem with the single engine performance was down to a wartime shortage necessitating some Beaufighters going into service without the ability to feather the propellers.....and while the Beaufighter could stay up on one engine, it was only if the prop on dead engine was feathered, due to the aerodynamic drag. Wiki has a good write up ------> Ttfn Pete

    Thatís possibly the difference in coordinate system between Gmax and DirectX. Another example is a model in Gmax for FS has the front showing in Back view of Gmax and the back is seen in Gmaxís Front view. Odd, but modellers just get used to it.

    Awesome! I also really loved the Tim Conrad model, and spent many, many hours flying that. This model looks fantastic. Thanks Restauravia.

    FooFighter, it is great to see you tackling the FHCAM P-40C! I'm not sure if you've seen these photos, via the FHCAM, that may be of use if you haven't seen them already. When they painted the FHCAM P-40C, they went about doing so in the same fashion they originally had with the AVG Tomahawks in 1941. The RAF camouflage was applied first, as it had been at the Curtiss factory, and using Curtiss' subcontractor paint company's versions of the RAF colors. They applied the paint using rubber masks, just as the Curtiss factory did. Because the wing and tail fairings and control surfaces were painted separately from the airframe, the camouflage demarcation lines never met up properly, and this is also reproduced correctly in the FHCAM P-40C's paint scheme. There were also of course big voids...

    From A2A: Hello guys, Now that the cat is out of the bag regarding Prepar3D v5 and the NDA has been lifted, just a quick word on the new version of the platform from A2A Simulations' perspective. The outlook for PC flight sims is especially exciting and fast-changing right now, so charting our future development priorities is quite a challenge. Version 5 of Prepar3D is just about to drop into the mixing pot and offers some promising performance improvements and a bunch of interesting features. Broadly speaking, our existing P3Dv4 aircraft already work pretty well in P3Dv5. However, there are a few features that currently aren't compatible. One of these is the dynamic windshield rain effect which will need updating for DirectX 12. As a result of the rendering changes in v5,...

    DD, A very worthwhile project. The beaches and cliffs alone would be useful in any European install. I don't know about the cliffs but the sand and shoreline could be done by one of our talented members.

    IIRC there is something about CFS3 which treats 180-360 different from 0-180, in that the former might have to be -ve values. I'm not 100% sure bur AFAIK, it applies to Global Layer orientation.
