    Hey all, First Thank You Terry for proving how smart the Frances are!! Thank You! Look at your points - 7 races left only two drivers with a real chance - only 4 if you think about it from the perspective of 100 points. The world no longer cares about a long track record - let me repeat that... The world no longer cares about a long track record...

    Well... At least Jimmie can rest well knowing that it was NOT another driver that took him out...

    I chose the P-40 first because I grew up near David Lee (Tex) Hill and all the kids in the neighborhood were fascinated with Tex's stories. Heck we all had Revell model P-40s and later gas powered RC P-40s. I wasn't disappointed. The A2A P-40 was everything I hoped it would be and then some. Then a I saw the reviews and videos of the A2A Spitfire...had to have it and I'm glad I did. How can you buy one and not buy the other. They are a bit of work in the cockpit with Accusim but well worth the learning curve. Ted

    Well round one is up, here are my notes - Harvick pretty much destroyed everyone today - don't count them out! - After years of driving with a golden horseshoe, lady luck finally bit the #48 team - Nice to see Truex Jr. still having a shot - "Sleeper" Ryan Newman is still in the hunt...

    Panther_99FS replied to a thread New camera in Photography
    If I may put my toe in the water here...I prefer fast cards nowadays. Both of my cameras are only 16mp so the RAW image files don't require huge cards. I don't like to go smaller than 16mb because I only shoot RAW. But having a fast memory card is good for burst shooting and video. :mixed-smiley-010:

    Hey Jimmy...I also fly a lot of Western Canada because of the mesh. There are several other great scenery packages available for X-Plane that include Alaska and the Northwest United States. You can find it here: Also have you tried the new DHC-2 Beaver? and take a look at the video: Ted

    I'm still not convinced. There were some technicalities that the teams couldn't overcome until the following season. On the other fronts, look what happened to Mercedes and Ferrari when Hamilton and Vettel arrived...and subsequently McLaren and Red Bull when they left.

    I think that if you look at Alonso and Jensen's history, they're both not the best at developing a car but are extremely fast if the car is fast. Not the best mix for McLaren right now.

    EasyEd replied to a thread Suzuka Grid. in Racer's Paddock
    Hey All, I was right - Hamilton the F1 fav... Was there ever really any doubt a Mercedes car would win? The history at Dunlop corner Suzuka speaks for itself. Brundle 1994... Bianchi could have and should have been avoided - not a fluke - go immediately to a full course caution - eliminate the leads and go to exciting restarts. Anyway really glad it didn't rain and hopefully they - F1 - have learned - we will see - when it rains again at suzuka. Soon as I saw Hamilton go to the lead and Rosburg the number 2 driver at mercedes fall away it was clear - switched to golf. Who cares about a battle for 10th? That is what I call settling. If drivers battling for 10th is the essence of racing for people - fine - they have every right to it. Whatever turns your turbines. I expect to see...

    Hey All, Well Congrats! Always nice to take pictures a Hooters! :mixed-smiley-010: What is going to be your first L lens? That is a big card - be sure to download it often - you can lose a lot if something goes wrong. Photography is a great hobby! My old film camera was a Minolta - now I am a Fuji guy.

    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
