    Daveroo, Seems a bit political towards Honda to me. First (and arguably foremost), there was the turbocharger issue to which Honda lost out on and now with Honda being winless, there is talk of them pulling out...

    Hey All, http://www.turbinesolutiongroup.com/ They are putting it in a Vans RV-10. First flight a year ago. It will be interesting to watch what the performance is. A video said 170 plus kts but they aren't showing fuel burns. -Ed-

    Hey All, You might also look at the Quest Kodiak. Great plane slower than a 12 but can go amphibs! Something a bit over 1100nm is a reasonable max range. It is probably my second favorite. As I said I would like a 206 and a beaver. And I don't get why 4 place GA are not using turbine engines like a PBS 100 a 240 hp turbine certainly not overkill for GA. -Ed-

    Hey All, Fly what you like. I think the 12 is a beautiful plane - even just sitting on the ground. Much of it's beauty is that it is multi-mission capable, stout and fast with great short field capability. In all honesty it is overall - as no plane really does everything - my favorite plane in FS. For a bit less plane I wish we had a turbine 206 (the soloy) and for a bit more plane I like the 1900s. And when will we see a turbine beaver?

    Daveroo, This sets a dangerous precedence - because the next time something happens it will most likely be a drive through penalty for the driver meanwhile Graham's win is uncontested....

    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

The Cockpit


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.
