    I've been doing this since the first flight simulation was made on a IBM System/36 mainframe...it was simply lines and numbers on something could pass for a cockpit. I did QC for Sublogic and fell in love with simulations under Bruce Artwick. I became a GA pilot, now I can no longer afford GA aviation, but I can afford this one to a small degree. Most of folks I meet talk about it just give you a look like REALLY...you fly a toy plane? Now I know how RCers feel! The good news is all my kids are now adults and they fly a PC!

    Three areas you want to get right are Motherboard, Power Supply and Ram with that 6700K CPU: Motherboard: My favorite because it is so easy to OC and it holds up under severe testing:GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA2W03VR9011 Ram: Corsair Vengence LPX (price varies) Power Supply: I prefer single rail Thermatake or Corsair

    Watercooling easy to set up if you take your time and make sure you understand the directions. I have built almost a 100 PCs over the years and never had one cooling accident. The real satisfaction comes when you build your own because you know every part of it. Setting it up and overclocking is the other half of the fun! Enjoy! Ted

    Hey All, Paul the cougar is basically a swept wing panther so that number looks good and I'll put max mach at 1.2 if that works. Attached is the config file for the cougar. Yeah my brother in law and sister have had quite the lives. His story about getting a medal from Israel for bravery is phenomenal as is a funny one about hauling penguins from antartica. You likely didn't know the airforce did such things. Anyway he was grounded by my sister once as she said the plane was not ready and she wouldn't budge - he says he had to marry someone like that. -Ed-

    Bazz the AH/JF DC-3 is great! There things I love about the MAAM DC-3 but if I had to pick the best today it would probably be yours. It could use some updating on flight dynamics and aging on the interior. You guys made a fine aircraft! I wish I was skilled enough to add the aging myself. I have been on 4 DC-3s and got to right seat one on a Museum's DC-3 I used to do volunteer work at so I have a feeling how it ought to feel. By the way Bazz, did I mention your Lockheed Electra 10A is a MASTERPIECE! WOW!!! While not a deep SIMULATION it really is a kick to fly! Aiming for the Aztec one day...thanks to you and your team!

    Hey All, From the readme with the Cougar... Yeah Paul I was wondering about that 528 and the literature I've seen says it is around 35 kts too slow - fastest apparently should be 562 at 2000 ft. may it should be bumped up... Anyway not a bad plane...

    Hey All, I'm going to try to use this event as a way to get back to flying. And as long as wildfire season stays calm I should be able to complete it. I am dedicating this event to my brother-in-law who was an FAC during vietnam flying an O-2 - too slow for this event. After the O-2 he went on to a storied career flying for 8th special ops mostly in C-141 stratolifters. The following events not in chronological order - From vietnam to winning an award from the Israeli government for his bravery during Yom Kipper to Jim Jones mess to being the first aircraft on the ground in Grenada to flying arms to the contras to picking up American troops during the failed Tehran rescue mission to more. Mike I am proud of you... His wife - my sister worked on U-2s, Sr-71s and was a crash...

    Sam was fantastic on ovals but average at best on the road courses. This why when the IRL remerged with CART, Sam's successes began to fade when the road courses came in - same thing happened to Dan Wheldon.

    in 1997 when we all got together when we were called combatfs . com I had a 250 processor to run cfs-1 then in 1998 I got a wow 350 and could run everything all turned up in cfs-1. I also remember online flying and had to wait in line for a room to open. in 1999 I got my first server and it was a 450 Unix, lol it drove me nuts, and canelo in 2001 talked me into a 550, for awhile we had 2 servers to run this site and downloads. This was back in the day of planes to download were 1/2 MB. Boy have we come far and to look at what is coming in processors the sky is our limit. We need MS to keep a promise come true with a new flight sim like realism.:encouragement:

    Hey John~ Thanks for helping me out with the "friendship request" issue. I did not get any notification at all.
    Gigabyte was able to help me with the Blog thing. So we are all set!
    Great teamwork there!
  2. Cool pic of you and the tweet!! I'm very envious. Maybe if I had better eyesight I wouldn't have failed my flight physical and toiled as a crew chief for so many years. Renting planes gets expensive!!

    You're kinda reserved, but I'd sure love to hear some good flying stories of your sometimes. What years were you active and what ypes did you fly?

Inside Beta Testing

by jmig on January 2nd, 2012 at 18:23
Over the last ten years or so, we have all seen MSFS models go from $5.00 each to $50.00 and more. With the increase in pricing, have come increased systems integration and model complexity. Interior and exterior visual acuity rivals today real aircraft. As the realism of flight sim models have increased, so too have the expectations of the consumer.

Developers are caught between the customers’ desire for ever better and more exact models, and the increased costs in man hours to program

End Devices for I/O Cards

Real world pilots control aircraft functions with switches, potentiometers, encoders, etc. We virtual pilots can also control our virtual aircraft with switches, potentiometers, encoders and more…through the I/O card.

Remember the I/O card is nothing more than a middle man between us and the flight simulator. By twisting a knob, or moving a control we send information through the I/O card to our virtual

Using I/O Cards

In an earlier entry I mentioned Input/Output (I/O) cards. Today we will look more closely at them and what they can do to enhance your flight sim experience. We will also look at some different I/O cards and later start building a simple switch panel which will control some of the MSFS basic functions.

Perhaps the most common I/O card available is the one in that old used joystick you have sitting up in the

I have had several requests for pictures of the cockpit. So I am posting here a few pictures of what the cockpit looks like. Please remember this is the acumination of six or seven years of research and work.

As we continue this blog, I will show you how I made many of the components and panels you see here.
This blog will go through the basic building blocks which together make up the simulator. Also, what

First-Sim & I/O Cards

Here are pictures of my first sim “cockpit”. It consisted of two Go-Flight Modules and three parts I made myself.

I also used two monitors, One for the outside view and another for the instruments. Holding everything was a simple plywood frame I constructed to support the monitors and components.
