    Pat, do the free upgrade to 8.1. I bought 8.1 and so far I've had no problems with it at all. Get Start Menu X too.... it free. One piece of software I recommend is Hitman Pro. This is the best antivirus/malware software I've ever had. It gets rid of anything nasty. Get it for 3 years and you'll save money. I had a pop-up Trojan and lost my internet connection. Hitman got rid of the Trojan and restored my internet connection. My local MS tech at the MS store in our mall recommended it, and I'm glad I listened and got it.

    Hey All, I stand with Harvick. Kenseth took him out - wheel hoppin - but the bottom line to that is Matt went into the corner too fast and it wouldn't surprise me knew he was gonna lean on someone - it was Kevin. Kevin "making sure" Matt doesn't win would not surprise me and I don't totally blame him. The only championship Matt won was a Mark Martin engine "blow up" before ever getting on the track. There was a lot of rough driving out there today way before needed or justified. I now stand solidly behind the idea that this elimination stuff don't work - too Mickey Mouse - even for me - as currently set up. Point over 10 races works for me but it will depend on the Frances. -Ed-

    Hey All, Uh No - the finishing order is already determined. I said a few weeks ago "the fix was in" when Rosberg had his "steering wheel not a problem that became a problem". I didn't buy it then and I don't buy it now - way way tooooo convenient. Just my opinion. But no no partial refund - sorry. -Ed-

    Hey All, OK so it's been a few hours... Somehow I crashed. I'm still not sure what happened but I've no doubt it was me... I bought this plane a short time ago and only yesterday stated flying it. Great plane I really like it. I figured out all my ground speeds at different altitudes (no wind) but I have not figured out how fast speed falls off relative to throttle reduction. That I figured I'd figure out along the way... Anyway Essendon to Charleville (sp?) is near the limit of this aircraft if you want to fly fast. So I was managing fuel all the way - "landed" with less than 3 gallons left out of 60 gallons to start. In addition to that there was fog - I couldn't even see the airport until less than 3 miles as runway light were not on and it was technically day. So worried...

    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

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.
