    Nice to see DTG really advancing and developing their flight sim. I think this is a feature that both the novice and the experienced flight simmer will like.

    Might be worth mentioning that there is someone on Facebook that does modifications to different fsx/p3d aircrafts and ships, there's even a ford class available just search for "Aeronaves Militares Prepard3d/FSX" on Facebook

    Falcon, thanks for the info and rundown. I was unaware of this little feature and its availability. Will make my flying boat base recreations from the past a bit easier.

    Thanks for the info, yes probably be fine, I detune my FSX similarly to you but as I do a lot of water flying or uninhabited areas it does not matter that much. I run the Captain Sim jets without any problems (except like everybody else in FSX, full blown bad weather into a large city somewhere always gives it the jitters, so this beastie should not be a problem my system is 64 bit. It will have to wait for a bit, too many other things on the run at the moment. I am surprised that the rush to do paints and screenies seems a bit slow, guess there is a lot of learning to do for some folks.

    Good Morning Milton, do you have any pictures or drawings of the P-70 radar operators cockpit. or any doc concerning the equipment for the radar operator? Also I wonder if the pilot did not have a rador scope on his panel as it was the case for the F7-F or the Skyraiders later. Yours Papi

    It goes back to 1945 in London (UK) If you look round the St. Paul's Cathedral area in the City you can clearly see the destruction wrought by the blitz with all the foundations of the bombed out buildings everywhere.

    Yup.. the Viking had a pair of Nene's strapped one under each wing! An unlikely looking jet for sure but it set a passenger aircraft speed record from London to Paris!! Unlike many test aircraft.. the Viking was converted back to props. There was always a hope that one of the team at CBFS would take it on for FS9 but data on it was scarce. ATB DaveB:)

    Ok then, the key to the right path is the Keystone K-47A Pathfinder from West Indian Aerial Express, named Santa Maria. :wavey:

    The one in the library converted by Lazarus isn't bad and if the scale is correct.. it's easy to see just how big the QE is when compared to say the Invincible class. There's a lot more to aim at!!:biggrin-new: Not tried the pilotable version or PoW though I have PoW. ATB DaveB:)

    scotth6 replied to a thread spitfire in DCS Combat Simulator
    Wow. Sounds like you are loving the Spitfire. Great to hear. DCS World has become an incredible simulator. I really don't even care what the scenery looks like (although it's pretty good as is) as my head is too busy being in the cockpit or focusing on a target. I am not quite hooked on the Spitfire yet. It is a magnificent reproduction, it's just that I was having trouble even getting it off the ground :biggrin-new:. I am hooked on several other DCS World aircraft though. When I start learning about one I don't want to stop until I know everything it can do; which is a lot in DCS. I am currently flying the Mirage, and I have just about finished the training campaign. It is so good I will probably go back and do it again. It's amazing, I bought the A-10C when it was a...

    By the pictures I'd say in the one in the library are slightly better than the MSPG one. Wonders idly if he knows someone with access to decent plans for the QE Class...

    In reply to a subsequent question of piston prop aircraft being converted to turboprop or jet engines. There were the Basler, Braddick and Dart DC3's. The Conroy Mustang and I believe a Vickers Viking became a jet testbed.

    Bypass air should not be confused with bleed air - all jet engines use bleed air to keep the flame off the metal. Turbofans in fighter jets have better low speed performance, so the J79-fitted Phantom was faster in level flight but the Spey-equipped ones took off and climbed better. Turbofan-equipped Tomcats don't need afterburners for carrier takeoff and climb out, significantly increasing their operational range. All from using the engine power to blow extra air out the back.

    I'm sure there's a QE and PoW in the library here. Rudimentary by some standards but no less so than the MSPG one in the link;) There's a pilotable version of QE by Erwin Welker on the same page. PoW is the page before;) ATB DaveB:)

    14 years old here, clearly recall watching it BBC TV with Patrick Moore & Michael Burke as enthusiastic commentators. In my minds eye it was in glorious colour even though I know it was blurry lo-res B&W. Odd how the mind works :wiggle:
