    Hey All, No I'm not missing the point(s). I'm saying that idea of racing is over - F1 can live in the past as long as they want. it was over sooner in the USA. Nobody is going around talledega faster than Bill Elliot did - not because the cars aren't faster - they are but because of other reasons. -Ed-

    Hey All, You simply miss the point. It isn't (should not be) about manufacturer points. Really simple. F1 can do what it likes but I don't see it as any kind of Premier series - just who has the most money and can influence the rules to favor their cars. Why cheer for that? -Ed-

    A thought from another forum... If Vettel had moved aside when first instructed, would Ricciardo have been on the podium? Looks like some potential manufacturers points were lost due to Vettel's arrogance....

    Hey All, So all that matters is teammate battling teammate when team orders have mostly settled that issue. Sorry not impressed. That said I saw the race a week or two ago in which the owner said - just don't wreck each other (bring the cars home) - that IS how it should be - every race every week. In this day and age racing of all kinds really has no rational basis being totally about the car anymore - liability and risk say so. If the rest of the world isn't there yet they will be. And add to that the whole - why am I spending this money and getting nowhere thing. I would really like to see a history of F1 field sizes to see if what I suspect is true. Is there an identifiable list of F1 racing teams who could still exist but have quit F1? I do not know. NASCAR has the same...

    So here you go.... 1) The reason why the F1 Manufacturers cup pays MASSIVE amounts of money is precisely due to the fact that F1 is about the car. A perfect example of this is the Ferrari Tifosi - they care about Ferrari winning and not who is driving the car. But... 2) It's not all about the car - a perfect example of this is Daniel Ricciardo beating the pants off of Sebastien Vettel this year in the same car.... NASCAR and Indycar follow a more cookie cutter/template approach to the car and thus manufacturer input carries less weight

    Hey All, Like Juan Pablo said in open wheel you just get in the best car and cruise to victory - no challenge - all the car. All we have here is a changing of the guard about who has the superior car. Now how can you rule out Vettel not winning if they had actually run the whole race? Just sayin... :mixed-smiley-010: -Ed-

    Well, I watched the race until 0400...flag to flag....:dizzy: Great to see Daniel really sticking it to SeBRATien......:encouragement: During the post race, the commentators stated that SeBRATien is great with huge amounts of downforce...... Looks like Vettel's going to have to learn mechanical grip to keep up with Daniel.... Great 1-2 with my two favorite drivers....:mixed-smiley-010:

    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.
