    Yup, I got the 1050 and Track IR - but my rig is all colapsible and I use the family TV for a monitor. No chance of three screens for me! I've seen it with three screens and it is brilliant and as soon as I win the lottery (after my fly in a Spitfire experience!) I will set myself up a proper cockpit with multiple monitors and gauges! PS: the music - I'm glad you liked it! YouTube's audio library isnt too bad if you really dig through!

    Noisiest beasts when one is under one in the low level flying area in Wales, surprises people as well as cattle etc! Wonder what TSR2 sounded like, never heard her although I worked on her for 3 years in the Weybridge D.O.

    Not researched the differences between the aircraft, but I would think its the difference in engine power that is the prime feature, and one therefore will have to adjust those parameters in the air file. The Merlin had different power out put depending on version of the supercharger for example. Keith

    The only tool that covers the full spectrum of a model's historical performance is AirWrench. If you know all the dimensions and specs, this will allow you to package it for the best realism. Most MS civie air files are designed from scratch with this tool, but it can also be used for CFS2 and CFS3 air files as well.

    I agree, 80% is as low as I'll go, I usually stick around 90%. As such, I've set up my FSX with GTX 1050 to stretch across 3 monitors, and I like it. I'm also considering getting a 3840x1080 monitor instead so there's no breaks, but with 3 monitors I don't mind the breaks. When I tried stretching across 2 monitors it was awful because of the break right in the center. I saw you have the 1050ti. If you've got access to 3 monitors, you might want to try it. Make sure you've got the latest drivers and go into the 3D settings and choose span displays with surround I think it is. It makes FS think it's only using one monitor. It works even better if you've got TrackIR, which it looks like you do. If you do, though, you'll definitely want to keep the zoom no less than 80%. P.S....

    I can't, Mike, oblige you with the specific book you require but I can recommend Pierre Jarrige's books - L'Aviation Légère en Algérie 1909-1939 and L'Aviation Légère en Algérie 1945-1962 - and his website ( The latter is the source of my second photograph, which M. Jarrige has failed to recognise as the Ligreau GL.4 and captions as 'Vers 1956 à Maison-Blanche, un avion d'origine inconnue construit par un amateur oranais', despite his website elsewhere containing a reference to and description of the GL.4 (q.v.

    Anybody got any clues on this problem? I posted on the Orbx support forum as well... but trying I all my resources. I used the FTX AU Control Tower to view AI traffic at a local airport after installing Ultimate Traffic Live. Very cool for watching AI. In using the radar, I used the "Fade In" and "Fade Out" options in the radar controls. I made the radar semi-transparent while doing so. I finished my session, then later returned to P3D 4.4 (version I use) and found that ALL my pop up windows on ALL sim aircraft are now semi-transparent. I also found I lost ATC voices. I can still hear aircraft noises (engines, cockpit sounds) but I get no voice at all for ATC. These two issues may not be linked but both occurred immediately after using The FTX AU Control Tower - Tall....

    I am pleased you found a new place to fly. I have been fond of the Crows Nest Pass area since I was a kid and the family first drove through there. I hear what you are saying about view points. I waffle between 100% and 70% or 80%. This was 80% for most of the flight. I personally find the distortion of the scenery disturbing if I zoom out to far but it is all down to personal preferrence I guess.

    So far, I don't see performance parameters in the .air files by altitude. Is this right? Or am I missing something. Case in point: The P-47 didn't maneuver so well at low altitude, but at high altitude it performed very well and gave the Luftwaffe's best a rough time of it. Spitfires could be in big trouble with 109s at certain altitudes depending on the model. I'd like for the .air file to reflect this, but I don't see where this is defined. Anyone know where I can find performance specs by altitude in the .air file?

    Ah the next 'Grey Eagle Challenge' has arrived! Not a helicopter as I can not fly those monsters! I've been reading up on Ultralights and Gliders - hmmm, I did the training missions for those back when I first got FSX but haven't tried again since.... Majestic Scenery, hmmm - more thinking to do....
